Alec Baldwin’s daughter Ireland has spoken out about her dad’s latest verbal diarrhea, after the actor allegedly called a photographer a “cock sucking fag”. Alec was seeing red after he believed the paparazzi was getting too close to his wife Hilaria and their baby, Carmen, when he used the offensive language.
Baldwin soon faced criticism for using the homophobic slur. Ireland took to Twitter to defend her hot-tempered dad.
“What my dad said was WRONG. What my dad felt WASN’T” She said in one tweet. “My dad is far from a homophobe or a racist. My dad has an INFANT CHILD to protect. All the parents out there should understand. You would do anything to protect your baby.”
Ireland is no stranger to Alec’s crazy rants herself. Back in 2007, she was on the receiving end of a particularly nasty voicemail where Alec called her a “rude, thoughtless, little pig” after she failed to call the star during the bitter custody battle between her famous parents.
It seems like Ireland has put all that behind her however, as she praised how far her father has come with his “anger management” issues:
“For someone who has battled with anger management issues, my dad has grown tremendously. It takes a lot of strength for someone to release their anger. It takes a lot of strength and SUPPORT for someone to grow and become a…..better person. We all say things we don’t mean. We all say things we can’t take back.”
Alec also issued his own official apology for the incident and is currently suspended from his show Up Late With Alec Baldwin.
“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.”

Alec Baldwin always allow the paparazzi to get the best of him. He falls for it every time, chasing after them, and lashing out with crazy insults.
The MSNBC talk show host was leaving his NYC apartment yesterday when he threated a photographer to stop taking pics of his wife and baby before calling another pap a “cocksucking fag.”
Baldwin didn’t want people to turn on him, so he said that he called the photographer a “cocksucking fathead,” which is bullsh!t. But anyway, Alec threatened to sue TMZ and wrote: “Acoustic analysis proves the word is fathead. Fathead … Anti-gay slurs are wrong. They not only offend, but threaten hard fought tolerance of LGBT rights.”
Late last night, Baldwin Tweeted: “Rich Ferraro from @glaad informs me that c’sucker is an anti-gay epithet. In which case I apologize and will retire it from my vocabulary.”
A rep for GLAAD has also issued a statement … saying, “Mr. Baldwin can’t lend his support for equality on paper, while degrading gay people in practice. It’s clearly time he listens to the calls from so many LGBT people and allies to end this pattern of anti-gay slurs.”
Eh, I wanna say that it’s time for Alec to move, but it’s pretty sad that the paps don’t respect anyone. It’s always a good thing when bigots expose themselves, so I’m not tripping on what Alec said. He’s always making gay slurs. His beliefs are always leaking out when he’s pissed. I don’t think he cares to stop making gay slurs either. He needs to watch it. Eventually he may get fired for his mantrums.

Alec Baldwin is passionate, and expressive, and impulsive. The talented actor attended James Gandolfini’s funeral today with his pregnant wife Hilaria Thomas. A Daily Mail reporter recently pissed off Rihanna and now the newspaper meets tabloid has upset Alec.
The Daily Mail claims that Hilaria was Tweeting during Gandolfini’s funeral and Alec flipped out and threatened to assault the writer. At least he knows how to stick up for his woman? Baldwin has since deleted his Twitter account!
The Daily Mail included a timeline of the purported tweets:
Around 8am: Mrs Baldwin retweeted an Us Weekly link about herself
8:47am: Tweeted about making smoothies on Rachael Ray. She then retweeted a Rachael Ray about her own beach bag packing tips
9:53am: She joked that Billy Joel’s ex-wife has good smoothie recipies
About 10am: Around the time the funeral is scheduled to start, she retweets Rachael Ray again, this time about her smoothies
10:17am: Tweets about the circle of life as James’ friends are speaking at his funeral
11:09am: She tweets asking for shopping tips for an anniversary present as Rev. Dr. Kowalski addressed the congregation
3.49pm She insists that she doesn’t ‘believe in bringing phones into a funeral’ adding, ‘I never did and I never would’
During the time of the service, she re-tweeted a post from the Rachael Ray show, promoting one of her own recipes of a summer smoothie. “I’m sure you have some amazing recipes!” Hilaria wrote.
Thursday afternoon, Hilaria tweeted: “I don’t believe in bringing phones into a funeral and I never did and I never would.”
Tweeting during a funeral is the height of disrespect. I hope this isn’t true. SMH. R.I.P. Jim!
UPDATE: This is what actually happened. Hilaria’s rep explains: “She didn’t have her phone with her during the service and she didn’t tweet anything til they had left. They were there for a couple of hours, she is 7 1/2 months pregnant and left because she needed some water.She retweeted people who had tweeted at those times.”

Shia LaBeouf loves to cause trouble and his recent actions are no exception. It was announced earlier that LaBeouf dropped out of the Broadway play 'Orphans' due to “creative differences”, which in Hollywood means there were too many egos to deal with.
Tuesday producers made the decision to replace LaBeouf after repeated attempts to get the actor to change his methods, even costars Tom Sturridge and Alec Baldwin stepped in to provide some words of wisdom.
Now it seems that LaBeouf just wants to get the last word as he's began releasing personal emails from his costars via Twitter and a tweet about punching a door. He even posted his audition tape, which is about an hour long.
Not sure what Mr. LaBeouf is up to, but if burning bridges and proving to the world that you're kind of a jerk is what he's trying to do by releasing these emails, then he's doing one heck of a job.

Alec Baldwin allegedly berated a black photographer this past weekend using racial slurs. G.N. Miller, the photographer for the New York Times, approached Baldwin while the actor was walking his dogs.
Baldwin allegedly threatened to choke the reporter (Tara Palmeri) to death just before calling the photographer a “coon,” “crackhead” and “drug dealer.”
Both Miller and Baldwin immediately filed harassment reports on one another following the confrontation.
This has been Baldwin's third confrontation with photographers in recent memory. The two previous incidents occurred on June 19 and June 29 of last year.
Sources close to Baldwin told TMZ that the “30 Rock” star got upset over a recent article in the New York Post. The article discussed the recent lawsuit being filed against Baldwin's wife. Baldwin was infuriated that the article failed to explain his wife's side of the incident, thus taking out his frustration on two completely unrelated reporters.
It's ironic that Baldwin originally got upset over what he claimed were false accusations about his wife, only to make false accusations of his own towards the photographer.
Tracy Morgan claims he always got along with Baldwin and that he never heard Alec use an anti-black slur towards him.
Alec said the photographer bumped into him to upset him. Baldwin told The Gothamist what took place: "I don't think I've ever uttered a racial epithet to someone in my lifetime.
He continued: "While police were here, you'd figure that'd be an opportune time for this guy to really attempt to tar me in some way. But there was no mention of anything I said to him, no one said anything about me saying the N-word or taunting him or anything. So it was after the fact. He wants to say I used some racial slur against him."

The trustworthy sources at New York Post’s Page Six (cough) are claiming that Hilaria Thomas is pregnant. Attendees at the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine, which was held on Saturday, claim Alec Baldwin‘s wife has a baby bump.
Hilaria also didn’t drink any alcohol, which of course means that she’s expecting! Twins!
A separate source says that “These rumors have gone on so long that if they were true, Hilaria would have had a baby already.”
Alec has already said that he wants to have more kids. We just need to give the newlyweds some time.
