Alec Baldwin Anti-Gay Bigot Gets Free Pass From Media: Video

By Robert Paul Reyes

 

"MSNBC has yanked Alec Baldwin`s show Up Late for two weeks as a result of the uproar stemming from his use of a homophobic slur.

But GLAAD says the move is not enough. `Alec Baldwin still needs to take real action,` the organization`s vice president of communications, Rich Ferraro, said tonight in a statement.  `MSNBC has sent a message that anti-gay slurs carry consequences, and that`s an important standard to uphold at a time when LGBT people continue to face disproportionate levels of bullying and violence just because of who they are.`"

USA Today

This is not the first time, nor will it be the last time Alec Baldwin hurls a gay slur at a photographer or a reporter. Baldwin has an inglorious history of using gay slurs; the presence of cameras isn`t enough to dissuade him from going off on an anti-gay rant.

Anti-homosexual expletives are Baldwin`s default outlet when expressing his outrage and frustration. Evidently in spite of his public support of gay rights, he feels that the worst thing person can be is a homosexual or lesbian.

Why does Baldwin get a free pass from the media, if a conservative star had using Baldwin`s offense language in reference to gays he would have been tarred, feathered and run on a rail out of town.

Temporarily yanking Baldwin`s MSNBC is no punishment, who watches the damn show anyway? Baldwin should be treated as a persona non-grata in Hollywood!
