Alec Baldwin trots out gay hairdresser to try and prove he’s no homophobe
15 November 2013

Alec Baldwin wants the world to know that he’s no homophobe even if he called a photographer a ‘cocksucking fag’ this week.

To prove it, the former 30 Rock star brought out his gay hairdresser to vouch for him in front of a group of reporters this morning in New York City.

‘Am I a homophobe?’ Baldwin asked the man, who was not identified.

‘Yes, bigtime,’ the hairdresser jokingly replied.

Later, the man told TMZ: ‘I don’t think he’s homophobic. I don’t at all. Whenever he is in here, we are always talking and cutting hair. He booked an appointment for today, he always does and he is a good tipper.’

So what did the hairdresser make of Baldwin using a gay slur during a confrontation this week with a photographer he felt got too close to his wife and child?

‘If he did say it … there was probably a good reason behind why.’

Baldwin earlier this year called a journalist a ‘toxic queen’ and worked with GLAAD to repair the PR damage.

This time, GLAAD has lost patience with the actor saying he can’t claim to be an LGBTI supporter and continue to use slurs.

CNN anchor Anderson Cooper, who is gay, ridiculed Baldwin on Twitter for trying to say he called the photographer a ‘cocksucking fathead’ when TMZ cameras clearly caught him using the slur.

‘Wow, Alec Baldwin shows his true colors yet again,’ Cooper wrote early Friday (15 November). ‘How is he going to lie and excuse his anti-gay slurs this time?’

He also wrote that Baldwin’s excuses ‘are actually so ridiculous they are funny.’
