Alec Baldwin: I’m not homophobic

Alec Baldwin January 2013 After his “ill-advised attack” on a journalist, Alec Baldwin apologized.

It all started when a journalist accused the actor and his wife of tweeting messages during James Gandolfini’s funeral on Thursday (June 27). Alec denied the accusations and in a series of tweets insulted the journalist, saying things like: ”If put my foot up your f****** ass . . . but I’m sure you’d dig it too much. I’m gonna find you. You toxic little queen, and I’m gonna f***…you…up.”

The star has issued an apology to the organization GLAAD (Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation) for any offence his language might have caused, insisting that he isn’t homophobic. The statement reads: “My ill-advised attack on George Stark of the Daily Mail had absolutely nothing to do with issues of anyone’s sexual orientation… As someone who fights against homophobia, I apologize… 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.”
