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." 

Page Six reports:

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?

Sounds like they are telling  Baldwin  bye-bye dude and  to take time  and get his shit together.  He is not all the rage  for the company ratings.

Alec Baldwin has for many years been an ally to the GLBT community & an advocate for gay rights for a long time . As a gay man I realize that his comments were rude and inconsiderate, but I also understand that when provoked constantly people can lash out in terrible ways. Its understood that A.Baldwin has anger issues. And I believe if more people were recorded having an altercation or a tantrum more people would come across worse than they actually are .

I thinks it's called "The shit hitting the fan"....ha ha ha ha ha ha ha......when people are "ugly" to other people they ALWAYS think it's ok because good people ALWAYS overlook this kind of behavior in an attempt to be excepting, kind, giving & understanding towards our fellow man but inevitably we ALL get tired of being abused and this man has been abusing us long enough...too bad really he is very talented but he is not THAT good an actor that he can act his way out of this mess...It's finally caught up to you Alec...Bye!

It is a known fact that when a man and women have multiple sons, chances are one or more of them will be gay and now we know which one is gay

HELL YES!

Usually "straight" men that tend to be overly aggressive in targeting gay men are CLOSET QUEENS with mental stability issues in accepting and embracing their own homosexual urges. Have a nice day Alec and a seat while you're at it!!
