MSNBC Has Fired Alec Baldwin Over Anti-Gay Slurs & "Diva-Like Behavior"
According to Page Six, MSNBC has pink slipped newly minted host Alec Baldwin over his recent anti-gay slur controversy, and, ironically, his "diva-like behavior."
The rage-aholic’s weekly show, “Up Late With Alec Baldwin,” has been canceled because of the actor’s foul-mouthed rant at a photographer he called a nasty name.
“The decision has been made. He’s gone,” an insider at the cable channel told me. “The [parent company] Comcast guys have decided. Word is spreading through the building.”
Baldwin’s dismissal was decided on partly because of his diva-like behavior toward co-workers, a source said.
Besides demanding a humidifier because he claimed the air at 30 Rock was too dry, Baldwin alienated staffers when he demanded a separate makeup room being used by a woman with cancer who is sensitive to hairspray.
Baldwin's spokesman confirmed the news, saying, “The show is not coming back. He had questions on whether he wanted to continue.”
Do you think MSNBC made the right decision?
