Alec Baldwin admitted to using an anti-gay slur - but not the one he's been accused of saying - and only after GLAAD told him "c--ksucker" counts.
Or so he claims. The outspoken star then allegedly called one paparazzo a "c--ksucking f-g" outside his NYC apartment building Thursday afternoon.
Baldwin denied using the f-bomb on Twitter, dubiously insisting he said "fathead" instead ... then later coming clean, but only about the word before it.
"Rich Ferraro from @glaad informs me that c'sucker is an anti-gay epithet," he tweeted. "In which case I apologize and will retire it from my vocabulary."
This is the second time that Alec Baldwin has come under fire for using an anti-gay slur, and like the last time, CNN's Anderson Cooper is incredulous.
Cooper went after him today, saying, "Wow, Alec Baldwin shows his true colors yet again. How is he going to lie and excuse his anti-gay slurs this time?"
"Just read Alec Baldwin's latest excuses. They are actually so ridiculous they are funny."
After a Twitter user argued that while Baldwin may be an "idiot," he also has a "right to say" what he wants, Cooper said, "I never suggested he had to apologize."
"He can say whatever he wants, but then why repeatedly lie about it afterwards?"
A fair point. As was GLAAD spokesperson Ferraro's: "Mr. Baldwin can't lend his support for equality on paper, while degrading gay people in practice."
