His show “Up Late with Alec Baldwin” was axed from MSNBC after he was accused of calling a paparazzo a “c*cksucking f*g,” and Alec Baldwin says the move was less than ethical.
The 55-year-old “30 Rock” actor discussed his exit with the Gothamist, noting, "You've got the fundamentalist wing of gay advocacy – Rich Ferraro and Andrew Sullivan – they're out there, they've got you."
Though he just released an official statement apologizing for his words, Alec Baldwin seems to insist he never said the F-word in his blog on The Huffington Post on Saturday (November 16).
Allegedly having called a paparazzo a "c*cksucking f*g," the "30 Rock" star offered a couple of "clarifications" beginning with "One is that I never used the word f*ggot in the tape recording being offered as evidence against me. What word is said right after the other choice word I use is unclear. But I can assure you, with complete confidence, that a direct homophobic slur (or indirect one for that matter) is not spoken."
