Alec Baldwin Lashes Out Against "Fundamentalist Wing Of Gay Advocacy" For Having His MSNBC Show Canceled
Alec Baldwin spoke to Gothamist to confirm news that his new MSNBC show Up Late had been canceled. In the process, Alec lashed out against the "fundamentalist wing of gay advocacy," whom he blames for his current troubles.
"Showing a video in which I call someone a 'cocksucking something'" he started, "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.' And then with The Post... there's nothing you can do when you get thrown in this washing machine, nothing. You know? Nothing. All you end up doing is just defending yourself all day long."
"Martin Bashir's on the air, and he made his comment on the air! I dispute half the comment I made," Alec added. "If I called him 'cocksucking maggot' or a 'cocksucking motherfucker'... 'faggot' is not the word that came out of my mouth. That I know. 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."
