Just because Alec Baldwin isn't on TV 24/7, it doesn't mean someone isn't always watching.
MSNBC has at least temporarily yanked the actor's talk show, Up Late With Alec Baldwin, from its schedule following the release of a video in which he directed an anti-gay slur at a paparazzo who was snapping pictures of Baldwin's family.
Baldwin immediately took to Twitter to defend against TMZ's claim that he used the word "f-g," insisting he actually said "fathead."
He then apologized today after, according to Baldwin, GLAAD informed him that "c--ksucking" (which he audibly did say) was also an anti-gay epithet. The organization's VP of communications called him out for his "pattern of anti-gay slurs," referring also to tweeted remarks Baldwin made back in June when he got angry at a reporter who wrote up what turned out to be an erroneous story about his wife.
"I would like to address the comments I made this past week," Baldwin began in a statement posted tonight to MSNBC.com. (E! Online is also a member of the NBCUniversal family.)
