Alec Baldwin Suspended By MSNBC, Issues Apology For Homophobic Outburst

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Alec Baldwin has been suspended by MSNBC for hurling homophobic slurs at a photographer earlier this week, and the actor has issued a real apology.

After previously denying he used a gay slur, then claiming he didn't know an obvious anti-gay epithet was anti-gay, he's finally admitting what he did.

The 55-year-old says in a statement, "I did not intend to hurt or offend anyone with my choice of words, but clearly I have - and for that I am deeply sorry."

Trying to rationalize, or at least explain his rage in context, he adds, "What I said and did this week, as I was trying to protect my family, was offensive."

Baldwin admits it was "unacceptable" to shout the phrase "c**ksucking f*g" while chasing a photographer on Thursday. In his apology, Alec concedes:

"Words are important. I understand that, and will choose mine with great care going forward. Behavior like this undermines hard-fought rights that I vigorously support."

Baldwin's issued his apology after the controversy he ignited and MSNBC announced it was yanking his weekly show off the air tonight and next Friday.

Anderson Cooper, among others, called him out for the ridiculous story he tried to spin, which he seems to have come to grips with now at least.

Meanwhile, the actor exchanged heated words with multiple reporters yesterday (see above) and appeared to hit a parked car while he was driving off.

This is all after the c-bomb and f-bomb in question (below). Good times.

MSNBC has AL Sharpton and with that everyone else is a moderate when it comes to racism- MSNBC is a rag network owned by Comcast and that's why I cancelled my subscription. MSNBC is an embarrassment who does nothing but play the race card nightly. Someone wants to see a racist/ try Oprah.

Looks like Obama made a phone call! Amazing he could find the time with this fabulous rollout of OBAMIECARE! That's okay- we will still get to see this radical liberal left on commercials. Hoooooray for Hollywood!
