Alec Baldwin Apologizes for Twitter Rant, Denies Homophobia

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Alec Baldwin has apologized for once again flipping his $hit at a reporter.

The latest incident only took place on Twitter - in response to a Daily Mail writer alleging that Baldwin's wife was on her phone during James Gandolfini's funeral this week - but it was especially ugly because it seemed to contain multiple gay slurs.

Baldwin referred to George Stark as a "queen," for example.

"My ill-advised attack on George Stark of the Daily Mail had absolutely nothing to do with issues of anyone's sexual orientation," Baldwin said in a statement to GLAAD late yesterday.

He added:

"My anger was directed at Mr. Stark for blatantly lying and disseminating libelous information about my wife and her conduct at our friend's funeral service."

"As someone who fights against homophobia, I apologize."

"I have worked, periodically, with numerous marriage equality organizations, especially over the past couple of years, to achieve the very rights that gay couples are earning by recent court decisions."

"I would not advocate violence against someone for being gay and I hope that my friends at GLAAD and the gay community understand that my attack on Mr. Stark in no way was the result of homophobia."

"Many Thanks, Alec Baldwin."

Baldwin's former 30 Rock co-star, Tracy Morgan, also got in trouble in 2011 for a stand-up routine in which he went off on gays.

Both men have seen their subsequent apologizes accepted by GLAAD.

I'm sorry Mel Gibson, I mean Alec Baldwin! Didn't Mel say I'm sorry and then continue bashing Jews? Alec ONCE AGAIN says...I'm sorry. Well I'm sorry because I'm not buying it! Just like Mel's true self comes out when he's drinking, Alec's true self comes out when he's mad! Let's see...he's called people "coon", a black reporter "Rodney King" (I highly suspect he was secretly pleased with himself for finding a way to overtly call someone the N word), and his own daughter a "pig". He also assaulted a female flight attendant when she asked him to follow the same rules as the other passengers. I'm sure he'll go on The View and Whoopi will rub his head and tell him it's ok.

All you Liberals and pro gay people- quit crying! He is one of yours! He is an avid Obama loyalist just like you! He hates conservatives especially George Bush just like you! He hates tradition- JUST LIKE YOU! He spews intolerance for anyone who doesn't have his extremist views just like you! You can't sit there and trim away the fat and take only what you want! He is irrational just like you! He is who you are! Just like each one of you!

Alec Baldwin can make all the apologies that he wants. It won't change the fact that he's STILL an out-of-control HOTHEAD. It won't be long before Alec emotionally flips out...again. It's coming...soon.

Can anybody really be surprised at this mongoloids antics? I mean he is the same asshole that called his daughter a rude thoughtless pig" so it's no surprise to me that this Idiot would say anything like that. And also, if it weren't true that his wife wasn't texting during James G's funeral, I'd like to see proof that,she didn't. She can say that she didn't do it all she wants....but if this journalist has irrefutable proof that she was texting....she had better get a lawyer, because I smell a potential lawsuit coming. One that Alec and Hilaria is going to lose!"

He's a racist! This isn't a one time rant. He's assaulted women (flight attendant), called people "coon", and called his own daughter a "pig"! He thinks all he has to do is issue a false "I'm sorry" and he gets away with it. I've already posted on Capital One's facebook page my feelings. During a week where Americans have seen the biggest victory in civil rights since the 60's, this racist has cast a pallor upon what should be a happy time for many in this country. Any person in his financial situation can throw money at a "cause" to help their persona. Doesn't mean he means it! I think his WORDS speak louder than his ACTIONS! He's no better than Mel Gibson!!!

So Paula Deen gets drawn and quartered, loses her empire over uttering the N-word 30 years ago...but Alec gets a free pass because...????
Because he's really a good guy (translate: Liberal...who the suck-up press bow to) therefore has a get-out-of jail card for anything south of murder 1. I would like to stick my foot up his _ _ _ because he probably wouldn't like it ,
