Alec Baldwin blames homosexual conspiracy over his show's cancellation
Actor made allegedly 'homophobic' remarks on broadcast
Actor Alec Baldwin, now a former MSNBC talk show host, now claims that the homosexual lobby led to his show being canceled. The "30 Rock" star was shown in a video lashing out at a paparazzi who was trying to take pictures of the actor's wife and baby. Baldwin used an obscenity associated with homosexuality. Baldwin denies this, saying he meant to call the guy a "fathead" and not a "fag."
Actor Alec Baldwin blames the "fundamentalist wing of gay advocacy" for the cancellation of his show.
"People who I worked with that I cared about - these people were all very supportive of the show. Now there was somebody on the staff who I did not want to work with," Baldwin said.
"There was somebody on the staff who I thought wasn't a good fit for me. And I wouldn't rule out if that person went to the [New York Post] and gave them that story," he said. The incident referred that he supposedly said he didn't care about a staffer having cancer because he wanted the room she was using.
"The woman using that dressing room, I was told she's allergic to some chemical, no one ever ever ever said to me that somebody had cancer, and I never said 'I don't give a ----,'" Baldwin said.
The incident may have been a possible contributing factor. It was the incident with the photographer that prompted the latest controversy.
"Showing a video in which I call someone a [expletive deleted], you can't really tell what I'm saying, and we live in a world in which the phrase 'TMZ's enhanced audio' exists. 'TMZ's enhanced audio,'" Baldwin says. "And then with the Post... there's nothing you can do when you get thrown in this washing machine, nothing...All you end up doing is just defending yourself all day long."
Baldwin apologized for the remark and tried to further alleviate the situation by professing his love for a fellow man during a technology conference last week. It didn't work.
"I dispute half the comment I made...'[expletive]' is not the word that came out of my mouth. That I know," Baldwin, who's shooting the new Cameron Crowe movie in Hawaii, continued. "But you've got the fundamentalist wing of gay advocacy - Rich Ferraro and Andrew Sullivan-they're out there, they've got you. Rich Ferraro, this is probably one of his greatest triumphs. They killed my show. And I have to take some responsibility for that myself."
