Alec Baldwin Jokes That He's Gay In Latest Attempt To Repair Damage
Alec Baldwin's "I'm Not A Homophobe" tour continued Wednesday, when he asked a member of his entourage to stand up before a large audience in San Francisco. "I want you to be my lover, Matt," Alec beamed to his friend in front of the crowd. "I love you, Matt. I love you in that way."
Alec went on to tell the tech crowd that had gathered for his appearance that he has loved plenty of men in his life, some more than women, though he stressed never in "a sexual way." The embattled actor let the laughter die down before reiterating that he didn't say "fag" during that gaffe with a paparazzi last week.
"If in any context in the world that we live in today, if any word is remotely offensive to people, then I’m perfectly willing to learn a different word," he added.
During his speech, Alec also told listeners that he hopes his daughter doesn't have as much of an issue with temper as he's experienced and pleaded with the audience to take everything they read on the Internet with a grain of salt.
"There is a drive-by justice to the Internet society," Alec said. "They indict you, convict you and hang you on the same day."
