Latest Alec Baldwin Scandal Puts His New MSNBC Show in Jeopardy Deadline, Huffington Post
Alec Baldwin's new MSNBC show was placed on suspension -- and may not return at all -- after a scandal erupted last week in which the actor reportedly made anti-gay remarks to a photographer. Deadline.com reports that the cable channel placed the show on a two-week suspension because of the incident.
Baldwin is saying that he and the show might not return at all after the suspension ends, the story reports.
As previously reported, Baldwin apparently chased and threatened a photographer outside his Manhattan apartment, reportedly calling the man a "c**ksucking f*g." Baldwin later said he actually called the photographer a "fathead."
On his blog, which is published on The Huffington Post, Baldwin wrote, "Whether the show comes back at all is at issue right now." He added, "But if the show dies, its fate ends up being no different than the vast majority of start-up TV programming, and so be it. We do take a small amount of pride in knowing that we beat CNN in the ratings each of our nights. (I forget who they had on at that time.)"
