Alec Baldwin on Anderson Cooper: “You couldn’t get him out of the closet for 10 years with a canister of tear gas. Now he’s the sheriff”
Uh boy, Alec Baldwin and his mouth.
He’s a talented actor whose work I have enjoyed for many years but I’m not always a fan of how he conducts himself off the screen and stage.
No one has that many confrontations and squabbles without being at fault a good deal of the time.
Alec had some things to say about Anderson Cooper after The Silver Fox called him out for a homophobic Twitter meltdown Alec had last month.
He had called a Daily Mail reporter a ‘toxic little queen’ in a Twitter rant after a story ran claiming Baldwin’s pregnant wife was tweeting during actor James Gandolfini’s funeral.
‘I’m gonna find you, George Stark, you toxic little queen, and I’m gonna fuck…you…up.’ Baldwin said in one of a series of profanity-laden tweets.
Another tweet stated: ‘I’d put my foot up your fucking ass, George Stark, but I’m sure you’d dig it too much.’
Cooper wondered on Twitter: “Why does Alec Baldwin get a pass when he uses gay slurs? If a conservative talked of beating up a ‘queen’ they would be vilified.”
Baldwin has appeared on The Howard Stern Show and, of course, could not resist the chance to take a shot at Cooper: “What i realize about him is, everybody in media, they have a job to do. Anderson Cooper has a job to do. And that job is to try to reinforce his credibility in the gay community after the fact that you couldn’t get him out of the closet for 10 years with a canister of tear gas. Now he’s the sheriff. Now he’s running around writing everybody a ticket!”
Well Alec, I think you deserved one.
