Alec Baldwin's Late Night Show Suspended By MSNBC
It appears that Alec Baldwin's anti-gay slurs will now have some professional consequences at least for a few weeks.
MSNBC has suspended his late night show, Up Late With Alec Baldwin. Baldwin will be off the air both tonight and next week.
Baldwin released the following statement in response:
I would like to address the comments I made this past week.
I did not intend to hurt or offend anyone with my choice of words, but clearly I have – and for that I am deeply sorry. Words are important. I understand that, and will choose mine with great care going forward. What I said and did this week, as I was trying to protect my family, was offensive and unacceptable. Behavior like this undermines hard-fought rights that I vigorously support. I understand “Up Late” will be taken off the schedule for tonight and next week.
I want to apologize to my loyal fans and to my colleagues at MSNBC – both for my actions and for distracting from their good work. Again, please accept my apology.
Did MSNBC make the right move?
What do you make of Baldwin's apology?
