Alec Baldwin Twitter Meltdown Comes After Journalist Accuses Wife Of Tweeting During Funeral

"Alec Baldwin and his wife Hilaria Baldwin attended the late "Sopranos" actor James Gandolfini's funeral Thursday morning, but while they were among mourners at the New York City church, Hilaria's Twitter account appeared to remain active. After a report from the UK's Daily Mail detailing as much, Baldwin launched a Twitter rant against the publication's writer who produced the piece -- and used several gay slurs in the process."

Never was a huge fan of Baldwin, and this is just another reason.

One only has to look at the source.

He is an entertainer, and not a very good one at that IMO. I've come to expect no less from him in light of his previous public actions.

Based on what I read, he called the man a 'queen' and implied he would enjoy it if he were to stick his foot up his ass. Not exactly raging homophobia. Hell, I've heard gay people I know call themselves queens.

As well. All this coming from the Daily Mail, I mean, really?! Should we be getting worked over what the Daily Mail said?

So what were the gay slurs?

What i saw was toxic little queen, and put my foot so far up your ass, but you'd probably like that too much...

The later is said in one form or another damn near everyday in here by all political stripes. Queen doesn't sound like a slur... I can think of a dozen real slurs- maybe it is time for all to be a tad less sensitive. :confused:

Is queen the same as f*g or even c**ksucker when referring to a man?

Alec Baldwin was funny on 30 Rock, but as a human being, not such a nice guy imo.

Boo-hoo. Who gives a flying **** what Alec Baldwin says anyway?

A person can ignore him, tell him to **** off or to go **** himself. Simple, really. But getting emotional, like, emotional, over this is ****ing retarded.

Yeah, he was "just kidding". Perfectly acceptable if you are a liberal contributor. He could probably call the President "My Ni@@er" and it would be passed off as an expression of affection.

I think he's hilarious in his work although he's a huge ass in real life.

You would think with their recent victory with SCOTUS they might sit back and bask in the victory for a day or two before running out to find something else to be outraged about. But do you expect from a bunch of drama queens? ;)

So what, everyone makes fun of gays on all television and radio. They don't call them names but the insinuation of even being considered gay is a constant source of laughter on tv. Many shows make fun when a man suddenly kisses an other man. It is every day. Even commercials ridicule gays. There is one now for a major corp. that ends with a man in his underwear only and sits next to a green muppet figure in his underwear side by side and the muppet figure says "awkward". Gays will always be a source of comedy and have been since entertainment began. Shut up and move on.

I guess that depends on who is doing the 'running out to find something'. I thought it was the 'conservatives' howling over a slur double standard or some such that drives this story....

He is a well known liberal, so I find it queer that he would do that.

Yeah, you're probably right. No self respecting (and let's face it, that's the only kind of respect they have) liberal would complain.
