And since DL mentioned Anderson Cooper and I follow him on Twitter and saw the tweet, I wanted to post this apology that Alec Baldwin made to GLAAD.
Alec Baldwin On Latest Twitter Rant: "I'm Not Interested In Offending Anyone": GothamistBaldwin has now released a statement to GLAAD, saying, "I have worked, periodically, with numerous marriage equality organizations, especially over the past couple of years, to achieve the very rights that gay couples are earning by recent court decisions. I would not advocate violence against someone for being gay and I hope that my friends at GLAAD and the gay community understand that my attack on Mr. Stark in no way was the result of homophobia. As someone who fights against homophobia, I apologize."
And GLAAD's Vice President of Communications, Rich Ferraro, has released this statement: "Alec Baldwin is making it clear that the intent behind his tweets does not excuse his language, especially at a time when there were 11 incidents of violence against gay men in New York City just last month. As we all work to end such senseless acts of violence, allies like Baldwin are right to use these moments to reinforce support for the community and LGBT equality.
I'm glad Anderson called him out on this and I don't think his apology totally excuses his remarks but I really don't think Alec's main problem is being bigoted, I think it is more that he has douche tourettes.
