Alec Baldwin is threatening to not only quit Twitter but acting too. In an interview in Vanity Fair he talks about how it’s Twitter’s fault that he keeps saying stupid shit. He said of social media in general that, “It’s just another chink in your armor for people to come and kill you.” Like when you call out gay journalists as ‘toxic queens’ people will write nasty shit back to you. He says that he learned an important lesson from James Gandolfini’s funeral. No, not to be an all around gentleman and professional like the late star, just that Gandolfini didn’t have a Twitter account:
“I went to Jimmy Gandolfini’s funeral, and when I was there I realized Jimmy Gandolfini didn’t have Twitter. Jimmy Gandolfini was so beloved as a person, and he was so admired as an actor, and he didn’t give a fuck about social media. I really learned a lesson at the funeral. I said to myself, This is all a waste of time”
I guess if Tony Soprano had to die to teach Alec Baldwin a lesson about the perils of having a Twitter account, so be it. We all have to do our part to make his world a better place. Dick.

After last week’s latest Twitter meltdown by Alec Baldwin, in which he called Daily Mail reporter George Stark a “toxic little queen” and threatened to shove his foot up his ass, it was only a matter of time before people started comparing the actor to Paula Deen. Baldwin went after Stark for writing that his wife, Hilaria Baldwin, had been texting at James Gandolfini’s funeral, which they naturally denied, but Baldwin’s critics wanted to know how his behavior was any different than Deen calling a bank robber the N-word and hosting a plantation-themed wedding, complete with black servers dressed as slaves.
Regardless, Baldwin apologized, citing his own efforts to end homophobia, and GLAAD has accepted his apology. Still, I think the only solution here is that Baldwin never touches Twitter again and his wife should have to pose nude. You know, once she’s all back to normal. (Or not, there’s a market for that, too.)

Alec Baldwin already quit Twitter once before because he was pissed off about something, so it shouldn’t be a surprise that he quit Twitter again in another hilariously pissy rage. Except this time, it was his “Alec Baldwin Foundation” profile that was deleted, because nothing says, “Hey, we’re good people doing good things” like threatening to shove your foot up a Daily Mail reporter’s ass and calling him a “toxic little queen”.
The latest freakout occurred after the Daily Mail accused Alec’s pregnant 32-year old wife, Hilaria Baldwin, of Tweeting during James Gandolfini’s funeral yesterday. Alec denied it, obviously, and he’s probably telling the truth because celebrities pay people to run their Twitter accounts now – except for Alec, of course – but that’s no fun when it’s easier to simply blindly pass judgment on people.

Well, that’s if you believe Radar Online. Here’s what I do notice looks sinister. Alec is raising his cell phone to a pregnant woman. He’s likely trying to irradiate his future baby with the electromagnetic pulse weapon that once gave cancer to a bunny in a Blue State college laboratory. Also, he has incredibly hirsute arms. Men with hairy limbs are often very bad people, most especially in movies involving Middle Eastern terrorist plots. Finally, that matching half of a poodle set Alec is leading along by a pink cute bone leash looks to have doggy AIDS. In an agitated state, it could snap and infect his yoga teacher wife. Heated argument? Hard to say. But is Alec clearly trying to give his pregnant wife cancer, AIDS, and a Jihadist suicide bombing mission? It would seem so.

I’m not even gonna google how old Ireland Baldwin is now because I doubt I want the answer, but the daughter of Kim Basinger and Alec Baldwin flew in to New Orleans last night, and if my daughter looked like this I’d probably be on edge all the time just like Alec.
Obviously every parent wants an attractive child, and if it’s a girl they want her to be pretty but Jesus Christ let’s not get carried away. Not THIS hot. A solid 8 that’s funny would be fine. Not some skinny blonde that literally hundreds of dudes will try to drug and rape. And that’s just while she’s in the New Orleans airport.

Gothamist says today that, despite yesterdays damning New York Post story that claimed to have witnesses, audio, and video evidence of Alec Baldwin threatening a female reporter and calling a black photographer a “coon” among other things, the Post has yet to produce any of this evidence and a source who has heard the Baldwin audio says “there is NO mention of a racial slur on the tape.”
The Post has yet to produce the audio they claim proves Baldwin slung the racial slurs, and yesterday, when we spoke to Baldwin again, he told us, “I am fascinated that the Post seems to have cameras everywhere… and handheld still cameras that have a video capacity—most paparazzi I know can shoot both with the same camera. And here we have a young woman there with a microphone and a camera, and they seem to have the capacity to record everything, and they can’t seem to produce an example of me saying a racial epithet.”
So, either the Post is lying to a shocking degree (would not be the first time, btw), or the person who heard the audio and said “there is NO mention of a racial slur on the tape” was Quentin Tarantino. “I mean, Baldwin did say ‘n****r’ a few dozen times, but I didn’t pick up on any racial inferences.”
