    Alec is at it again:


    Now, it's not coming from much of a news source, but I'm surprised they don't touch on the homophobic nature of the rant.

    But, when you say, "I'd put my foot up your f---ing ass... but I'm sure you'd dig it too much," and call someone a "toxic little queen" that's some anti-gay bigotry right there.

    Well, look at all the shit Devin Banks pulled to try to get his job!

    In all seriousness, yeah, that shit's over the top. No surprise with Baldwin, who is an incredibly funny performer and, from all accounts, a major-league asshole.

    Should it cost him his endorsements, etc., like it did Paula Deen? I think so.

    And not surprised by this at all. Dude has issues.

    What endorsements does he have? He's in those ubiquitous Capital One commercials, and he probably should lose those, but what else does he shill for? Do they still run that DirecTV spot where he redoes his Glengarry Glen Ross speech?

    I think that the anger was aimed at the paparazzi will get him a bit of a pass.

    I'm sure it won't hurt that he's a beloved liberal. :)

    He went too far, but I don't think it's that big of a deal.

    He won't lose anything. This rant is tame compared to what he's done in the past.

    I actually think people like that he's so vocal about how much he hates the paparazzi.

    I love this one...

    Someone wrote that my wife was tweeting at a funeral. Hey, that's not true, but I'm going to tweet at your funeral.

    Aren't there laws against threatening to commit violence against people, as Baldwin did in one tweet?

    Mizzou is right. Not a damn thing will happen to Baldwin. Libs get a pass on this stuff.

    It might be because he is a liberal but I think it's more because he has become the Charles Barkley of actors -- he can do and say stuff that others can't.

    Seriously, guys. Take the political whining where it belongs.

    The fact that he often plays characters that do the same type of thing doesn't hurt.

    I tend to agree with this. Part of Baldwin's "charm" is that he's such a loose cannon.
