Alec Baldwin Uses Offensive Language To Take On Anderson Cooper
Alec Baldwin obviously lost control of his mouth long, long ago in an accident that quickly turned him into the liberal Donald Trump. Now, Alec is shooting his ambiguously homophobic chatter at a new, more powerful target: Anderson Cooper.
During Alec's recent appearance on the Howard Stern Show, the topic of Anderson's disgust with the 30 Rock star's Twitter fiasco from earlier this summer (you know, the "toxic little queen" back and forth) came up.
Said Anderson shortly after Alec came under fire for using anti-gay language against a journalist, “Why does Alec Baldwin get a pass when he uses gay slurs? If a conservative talked of beating up a ‘queen’ they would be vilified.”
Well, Alec didn't take so kindly to being criticized by the out star.
“What I realize about him is, everybody in media, they have a job to do," Alec told Howard. "Anderson Cooper has a job to do. And that job is to try to reinforce his credibility in the gay community after the fact that you couldn’t get him out of the closet for 10 years with a canister of tear gas. Now he’s the sheriff. Now he’s running around writing everybody a ticket!”
Yeah, we were distracted while imagining Anderson Cooper dressed as a sheriff, but it's still painfully clear that Alec is stuck in the ice age of Hollywood, a time when nobody had the balls to call out these kind of jokes as offensive.
Times have changed Alec and you're showing your age. Someone needs to take away your keys before you get another ticket.
