Ireland Baldwin SLAMS Newspaper, Denies "Standing Up" for Father

by at . Comments

She isn't using any controversial language, but Ireland Baldwin is steaming mad.

Following her father's latest outburst against the paparazzi - in which Alec Baldwin referred to a photographer by a homosexual epithet - this 18-year old took to Twitter and sort of defended her dad's actions.

"My dad is far from a homophobe or a racist," Ireland Tweeted, adding that her father continues to deal with "anger management" issues.

The New York Daily News subsequently ran an article quoting Ireland's Tweets and headlined it with "Little Pig' to the Rescue!," a reference to a 2007 voicemail in which Alec went off on his then-12-year old daughter.

And at this, Ireland went off on the newspaper.

"I've dealt with a lot this past week," Ireland wrote on Instagram. "This has been a particularly rough week for many reasons. When I saw this earlier today, I didn't really give two shits about it. I thought the little pigs children's fable reference was a clever touch."

But then?

"When I revisited this article, I saw it for what it really is," the teenager continued. "Everyone tells me to stop paying attention to what others are saying, but it's hard. This hurts. I am a human being, believe it or not. I am also not a celebrity. This is not what I would ever want to be known for.

"I am so tempted to delete my twitter and all other social media outlets, but I won't because the small following of loyal friends I have, has been one of the greatest support systems that I could ever ask for. Thousands of strangers that feel as though I've known all of them my entire life."

Ireland also went on to clarify her comments surrounding her famous parent.

"I did not STAND UP for my father. It is never right to treat people the way that he has," she wrote. "I simply wanted to show my support for my family. No matter what, my dad is my dad and he is the only one I will ever have. He may have made some wrong choices, but that doesn't mean I'm leaving his side.

"The past is past and the Daily News are a bunch of cowards for revisiting my past. In the end, I feel nothing but sorry for them."

And that is that for the outspoken teen.

"That's the last I'm saying on this entire situation," Baldwin concluded. "Like everything else in this life, this too shall pass."
