Friday, MSNBC took quick action and suspended actor and host of “Up Late”, Alec Baldwin, for the language he used towards a man who was filming his family.
While arguing with the man, he called him a “c*cksucking f*g.”
Because of that, his show will not air on November 15th or November 22nd.
This isn’t the first time Baldwin had to explain comments he made.
On MSNBC’s website, Baldwin released this statement:
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.
