MSNBC host promises to retire offensive term from his vocabulary

Alec Baldwin has admitted to using a homophobic slur — just not the one he was accused of using.

The former “30 Rock” star turned to his old friend Twitter to clarify details of his run-in with a photographer on Thursday. He said he would stop using the word “c—sucker” on the advice of GLAAD.

“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,” Baldwin wrote Thursday night.

alec baldwin twitterBaldwin came under fire on Thursday after TMZ posted video of the actor in which he seemed to call a paparazzo a “c—sucking f-g.” The “30 Rock” star subsequently took to Twitter to clarify that he'd called the photographer a “fathead.”

“Anti-gay slurs are wrong. They not only offend, but threaten hard fought tolerance of LGBT rights,” Baldwin added.

The explanation failed to satisfy gay CNN newsman Anderson Cooper, who accusing Baldwin of lying and making “ridiculous” excuses.

anderson cooper twitter“Wow, Alec Baldwin shows his true colors yet again,” Cooper wrote early Friday. “How is he going to lie and excuse his anti-gay slurs this time?”

Cooper later added, “Just read Alec Baldwin‘s latest excuses. They are actually so ridiculous they are funny.”

In June, Baldwin issued an apology to GLAAD after calling Daily Mail reporter George Stark a “queen” and threatening to beat him. Stark had accused Baldwin's wife Hilaria of tweeting during the funeral service for “Sopranos” actor James Gandolfini.

    Baldwin clearly has a problem with homophobic language. However I always thought CS was a bit more generic as an insult, particularly for boomer and earlier generations. I am probably wrong.

    • rainman199

      c'sucker is a gay slur? BS I am tired of gays co-oping all the good insults. If I call someone a c'sucker it's because I am pissed off at them I don't have any idea nor do I care if they are gay or not. It's just like calling some one an a'hole, it's just a word. Next thing you know gays will say a'hole is a gay slur because gays like the butt.
      Now on to Baldwin, no doubt the dude has a history of making gay slurs, he likely grew up doing it and runs back to his comfort zone when he gets stressed. He is an a'hole (that was not a gay slur) of the first order and has no business being on TV as a spokesman for anyone. But since he is on MSNBC it is almost like he's not really on TV so there is that.
      Flush the guy down the toilet and let's forget the c'sucker.(again not a gay slur just a word to insult an a'hole)

      • Deerjack

        To rainman99: I coulden't have said it better. I also refuse to let the gays have all the good cuss words!

        • Jose Rennon

          Listen to yourself.
          You are a joke.
          People like you and rainman didn't get out enough during your younger, formative years. The world is a mystery to you and it frightens you because you don't understand it.
          Either get with it and learn to operate in today's world, or kindly go kill yourself.

          • FrankenFraud

            Translation: Either agree with what Jose says or you deserve to die. And “people” like you talk of “Tolerance”?? What a bad joke your PC code truly is!!

      • Jose Rennon

        Grow up.

        • rainman199

          Now you're just being an asshole. Wait you like it up the asshole so that was probably offensive. My bad

    • Jeffrey Marks

      I've always wondered why that's an insult. Is there anyone who doesn't like a blowie?

      • Jose Rennon

        Are you really that stupid, or are you just pretending?

        • Jeffrey Marks

          Spoken like someone who needs one.

          • Jose Rennon

            I love bj's. But that's beside the point.
            If you don't understand why it's offensive then that makes you an idiot.

          • Jeffrey Marks

            I am an idiot to question the use of a word as a pejorative when the word in question brings pleasure to most every male around?

          • Jose Rennon

            Don't play stupid with me.
            You and I both know the term “Cocksucker” is a fundamentally anti-gay, and offensive to gay people.
            Grow up and stop acting like an idiot.
            I really don't think you're THAT stupid.

          • Jeffrey Marks

            While I'll give you that Alec Baldwin is a major sized idiot and quite likely has anger issues and some hatred of gays, I refuse to call “cocksucker” offensive to me.. I'm good at it, and I like them. It should be a merit badge of honor!

      • Marshal Mathers

        Oral is also considered SODOMY

        • Jeffrey Marks

          Yes, and I love how the right always wants to pretend only gays have “sodomy”

  • Baldwin at it again!!!!

    Baldwin is a dangerous, serial, assaulter. It wasn't that long ago Baldwin called (and tweeted) an award-winning black photographer a “crackhead” — solely based on the color of the photographer's skin.

    The black photographer's work has received solo exhibitions at the Brooklyn Museum of Art and the John Jay College of Justice.

  • gabbycorner

    I totally believe that he used gay slurs. He is a really a despicable person in more ways than one and after all these latest hijinks, I won't go to see anything that he's in.
    My advice to Hilaria is don't trust him for a minute. Genevieve whoever may be nuts, but delusional, I don't think so. Shame on you Alec, gay epitets are no longer acceptable.

    • amazedandalarmed

      Gay slurs are ok with me, nobody's forcing them to be disgusting. How about the rest of you?

      • Jose Rennon

        What I find disgusting is your heartlessness.

    • Gerard Kennelly

      he bullied jack lemmon to the stage
      ed harris had to walk off set
      he was gonna punch him

  • gabbycorner

    As far as being a boomer, Mr. Baldwin should know better than anyone that CS is not a very nice thing to call anybody, gay or straight. How would he like it if a gay person called him or one of his brothers a CS?

    • rainman199

      You sound like a mamby pamby. Will you cry if I call you a bad word?

      • Jose Rennon

        He and I are both namby-pambies, and we'll kick your fucking ass if you try that homophobic shit in person.
        You're just a coward trying to type big words. Loser…
        It isn't normal to behave the way you're behaving. When one sees that type of behavior, one can bet that it's all fueled by the homophobe's secret attraction to members of his or her own gender.
        Come out of the closet and stop lying to yourself. No one else is fooled by your attempt at subterfuge.

        • rainman199

          Jose, you react to a rather innocuous post like you are a bitter hurt man. Did your father or an uncle abuse you as a child? I can only surmise that you were severely damaged as a child to think that an internet threat to “kick my ass” does anything but make you look like a small pathetic and man who finds internet boasting a cathartic relief to a long ago exercise assault on you by someone you trusted. If that is the case I feel sorry for the little boy who had to suffer at the hands of a pedophile. But to the adult who thinks internet threats of “ass kicking” is a macho make up for the way you turned out, well sorry is the last thing I feel. I only ask that you not repeat the sins of your father or uncle or whoever it was that abused you as a child. Break the vicious cycle Jose, it is the right thing to do. You may not be able to help yourself but you can help the next child. Stay strong my namby pamby brother or perhaps you prefer “wussy pussy”, I don't really stay current on the jargon you fellows are offended by.

    True A-list celebrities who live in NYC or frequently visit include Katie Holmes, Angelina Jolie, Brad Pitt, Robert DeNiro, Adam Sandler, Julia Roberts. None of them have run-ins with the hard-working people who make their living with a pen or camera. Alec Baldwin is, ay best, a B-lister. He needs an intervention before his assaults maim or kill someone.

      Add Jay-Z and Beyonce to the list of true A-listers who live in NYC, are out and about, and don't initiate altercations with the pen/camera crowd.

      Exactly, SMH. He is an ‘attention whore’ of the worst kind. He is just the oldest in a line of ‘the baldwin brother loser's club'. Wait until his young wife has to protect _her baby_ from his temper. He went ‘cra cra’ on his own daughter so he is not above ‘striking’ out at those close to him.
      I'm beginning to think it wasn't really Kim Basinger's ‘insanity’ that broke up their marriage and drove him away. His jealousy of her Oscar was only the tip of his ‘wacko iceberg’ of aggression @ temper difficulties'.
      I hope he gets canned from all of his well paying gigs for this recent outburst.
      Baldwin is a shameless pig.

      • Gerard Kennelly

        ironic
        i genuinely wish he had won the oscar for THE COOLER

  • John

    But what if the guy WAS a c–k sucking faggot?

    • Jassco

      Only one way Alec would know for sure…

  • TheValuesVoter

    Dude's problem is that he has a serious anger problem. I don't think he hates any particular group of people. But if someone has enough of a hair trigger to cause them to curse out their own teenage daughter, what do you think they're capable of saying or doing to a perfect stranger?
    He doesn't need any form of “sensitivity training” as much as he needs a good therapist and a commitment to dealing with whatever happened to him that made him such a perpetually ticked off guy. He's a time bomb waiting to go off.

    • dude

      “But if someone has enough of a hair trigger to cause them to curse out their own teenage daughter” lol you obviously don't have kids, mine aren't even close to teenagers and they already drive me crazy enough to cuss at them from time to time, i can only imagine when they become teenagers and they do all the stupid crap teenagers do

      • Jose Rennon

        Then you shouldn't have kids if you can't control your own behavior.

    • Gerard Kennelly

      he bullied jack lemmon
      he bullied shia
      he bullied his daughter

      • Jose Rennon

        It's true.
        You're a loathsome homophobe, but I have to say that you're right on this one fact. Alec Baldwin IS a bully.
        Even a racist, bigoted stopped clock is right twice a day.

        • Gerard Kennelly

          i have my (doesn't take it up the) whole life ahead of me
          thanks be to the invented god

    • Baldwin at it again

      Agree he needs a good therapist and to deal with what made him a perpetually ticked off, insecure, guy. He also needs some time behind bars for assaults he previously committed. He's been getting the celebrity preferential treatment when the D.A.'s office in Manhattan considers whether to charge him. It's only a matter of time before his bomb goes off.

  • Dan

    He meant it. These liberals are all phonies

    • Jeffrey Marks

      Extrapolating all liberals from Alec is like extrapolating all conservatives from Pat Robertson.

    • deb_gib

      Alec is a ‘liberal poseur'. Wants to be seen as one thing but holds diametrically opposing beliefs, read: bigoted ,hypocrite with major anger & agression issues (he's a ‘closet, rep/con tea-bagger which is ‘ted cruz evil').

      He should ask Mel Gibson how well the _hatespeech-thing_ worked out for him (ie; career, family and friends).

      I am sick the gays whining, they make comments about heterosexuals all the time do we call them out or try to hurt their careers? The owner of MSNBC must be gay. I understand there are a lot of people who want to live that life style, what I am sick of is having it in my face all the time. Your whining makes me think you know that lifestyle your living is not right. Give Alec his show back.

        Nobody likes a lying fear-monger like yourself.

      No one is forcing you to act in a gay manner, that's just your own fears talking, and maybe some latent desire.

      There's a difference between demanding equality and forcing others to act just like you. Straight people forced gay people into the closet for most of human history, so stop hurling stones.

      Using that kind of hateful language won't make you any less attracted to members of your own gender, and it won't make your tiny cocktail weenie any bigger.

    Alec Baldwin is a typical, liberal hypocrite. Talk the talk, but can't walk the walk. MSNBC is just as bad for keeping him around. Slanders gays, verbally assaults an airline hostess, bullies everyone he's around; when will someone just punch him. Better yet, JUST STOP GOING TO HIS MOVIES!!!!!

  • FrankenFraud

    I dislike Alec the ass Baldwin immensely. But I also believe in the words of the French Philosopher Voltaire: “I may not agree with what you say but, I'll defend to the death your right to say it.” So Baldwin called someone a “Cock sucker”, so freakin’ what? I've heard a lot of foul, nasty & uncalled for slurs/remarks uttered all under the guise/dismissal of a “joke” & or rap “music”. Btw, Muslims don't accept homosexuality or gay marriage either but ,none of these spineless mass media types would ever dare criticize them or say something derogatory in public about Mohammed (they'd end up dead).
