THE PROGRESSIVE’S DARLING: Alec Baldwin Hurls Anti-Gay Epithet at Paparazzo

Alec Baldwin is admitting that he needs to adjust his vocabulary. The notoriously hotheaded actor got himself in trouble yet again for using a homophobic slur against a member of the media.

In a video posted on TMZ on Thursday, Alec Baldwin goes after two paparazzi he says are too close to his wife and child, calling one what sounds like “c**ksucking f*g.”

But the actor claimed– in a now deleted tweet– that he said “fat head,” according to TMZ. Either way, he was willing to apologize for at least some of his words.

“Anti-gay slurs are wrong. They not only offend, but threaten hard fought tolerance of LGBT rights,” he wrote. “[Rich Ferraro] from @GLAAD informs me that c’sucker is an anti-gay epithet.
In which case I apologize and will retire it from my vocabulary.”

TMZ added that Baldwin threatened to sue their gossip website for suggesting he used an anti-gay slur.
