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

Published on November 15, 2013

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.
