Alec Baldwin Apparently Calls Paparazzi A 'C**ksucking Fag'

Alec Baldwin reportedly hurled an anti-gay slur at a paparazzo in New York City Thursday.

Paparazzi arrived outside the actor's apartment following the ruling in the case against his stalker, Genevieve Sabourin, who was sentenced to 210 days in jail on Nov. 14. After the win, Baldwin lost it on a paparazzo, apparently calling him a "c**ksucking fag," because he got near his wife, Hilaria, and their baby.

TMZ has obtained footage of Baldwin's latest rant. The video shows the actor chasing one photographer on the sidewalk before going after another one in the street. He appears to use the offensive language before getting into a chauffeured car and riding off.

Baldwin, however, tweeted these messages later in the day:

If @TMZ asserts that I used an anti-gay epithet, I will sue them.

Acoustic analysis proves the word is fathead.
Fathead.

Anti-gay slurs are wrong. They not only offend, but threaten hard fought tolerance of LGBT rights.

But right wing liars want those words to come out of liberals mouths.
They need them to.

The MSNBC host has made headlines for his language in the past.

He later sent an apology to GLAAD, People magazine noted, explaining that his "ill advised" attack had nothing to do with the writer's sexual orientation. He emphasized that he has worked on behalf of same-sex marriage.

"My ill-advised attack on George Stark of the Daily Mail had absolutely nothing to do with issues of anyone's sexual orientation," his statement read. "My anger was directed at Mr. Stark for blatantly lying and disseminating libelous information about my wife and her conduct at our friend's funeral service. As someone who fights against homophobia, I apologize ... 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."

New York Mag noted Thursday that Baldwin has used the terms "fag" and "queen" multiple times before, in 1992, 2011 and 2012.
