Alec Baldwin apologizes for Twitter rant

Posted on

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.

Baldwin’s messages were directed at a newspaper reporter who accused his wife of tweeting during the funeral for former Sopranos star James Gandolfini. Baldwin says in a letter to GLAAD posted on its website Friday his tweets didn’t have anything to do with “issues of anyone’s sexual orientation.”

The former 30 Rock star says he’s done political work with marriage equality groups and insists he wouldn’t advocate violence against someone for being gay.

GLAAD spokesman Rich Ferraro says Baldwin’s language was improper and his tweets didn’t reflect his “history of actively supporting LGBT equality.”
