Alec Baldwin has apologized to a New York City-based lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender rights group for a series of tweets that could be interpreted as homophobic.
He can apologize all he wants...Alec Baldwin needs anger management therapy.

What the hell?
Alec is just a grumpy old dude who hates just about everyone. He's an equal opportunity hater. He'll go to his grave apologizing for something he said the week before.
His explanation for how "queen" doesn't mean gay to him, was pretty tortured. Even if he'd called the guy a "faggot", he'd try to lie his way out of it pretending he didn't mean it "that way." He'd say the word means "asshole" to him, or something like that. By giving us this line that words mean something else entirely to him, he's not really apologizing at all. He'll do it again, he's explained he's done nothing wrong.
Well he said something hateful about gays so i'll be waiting to hear that capital one has fired him. Paula Deen got fired for saying something years ago so they have to fire him, right??
He should be fired.
The Philharmonic needs to fire him as spokesman and kick him off their board.
This guy is such a major miserable mean creep. What dose DL keep forgiving this fool? He is extremely arrogant and he has put down gay people many times in the past. Ditch the looser!
Some celebs seem to get away with bad behavior over and over. He has used homophobic before, as well as the "N word". Still works constantly and gets endorsement deals. Even the lame-os at GLADD came to his defense.
I'm always puzzled to see some a-holes, like Mel Gibson, get vilified (justifiably) while others get a pass.
If I were Capital One, I would fire him, rehire him, pull his chest hair and fire him again!
I am sure he is not homophobic but I am also sure he has a dangerous knee jerk reaction to situations that is scary. The fact that one tweet was not enough makes me wonder what he would do over a really serious issue.
"Get off my lawn !!"

I double-dog dear you.
It's nice that he's a "liberal" , but he's just another stupid straight guy with a decades-younger (pregnant) golddigger (soon-to-be-ex) wife.
His outbursts have made him very tiresome.
Alec gets a lot of support here because she is the Queen of Pointless Bitchery.

Why? Was there some sort of law passed that I haven't heard about?
Or are you lamely trying to score points because you're pissed someone got punished for saying "nigger?" I'm gonna go with the latter.
Paula Deen was fired by private companies once the public sentiment about her became so negative that it made no sense to keep her on as a company spokesperson. If people make the same stink about Alec Baldwin and his use of the word "queen," it's possible, but not likely, the same could happen to him.
Your last line r13, exactly. Enough is enough, he was tolerated for quite a while but never tried to change one bit. And even now, he still won't admit that he's the problem, not the rest of the world.
If you think his homophobic rants are bad, you should hear what he says when he's yelling at me.
