Anderson Cooper on Alec Baldwin: Where's the Outrage?!?

by at . Comments

Alec Baldwin going off on a reporter is not unusual.

It's become more of a norm for this actor than hosting Saturday Night Live.

But Baldwin took his rage to a disturbing extreme last week when he blasted Daily Mail reporter George Stark for allegations the writer made about Baldwin's wife.

The Emmy winner has since apologized for the homophobic nature of his remarks, but Anderson Cooper has still raised an interesting question regarding Baldwin, an outspoken liberal.

“Why does#AlecBaldwin get a pass when he uses gay slurs?" the openly gay anchor wondered on Twitter. "If a conservative talked of beating up a ‘queen’ they would be vilified.”

Cooper then re-Tweeted a message from CNN producer Steve Krakauer, who quoted the excerpts of Baldwin’s tirade that read: ”[I'd] put my foot up your f**king ass, George Stark, but I’m sure you’d dig it too much.”

What does that mean, Alec? both Krakauer and Cooper asked.

No direct response yet from the star, but what do you think of Baldwin's Twitter rant?
