Alec Baldwin's Talk Show Cancelled
Alec Baldwin has just lost his new talk show.
The hotheaded actor officially got the boot from his short-lived MSNBC talk show following a tirade during which he uttered a homophobic slur.
It happened earlier this month as Baldwin was chasing photographers outside his New York apartment building. As he walked away, he let loose with what sounded like a gay slur.
He later apologized, saying he meant no offense. But his show was suspended November 15.
A spokesperson confirmed a New York Post report that Baldwin's low-rated show, which airs Friday nights at 10 p.m., has been cancelled after just five airings.
A statement from MSNBC and a representative from Baldwin states: "We are jointly confirming that UP LATE will not continue on MSNBC."
CNN's Piers Morgan tweeted his support for Baldwin today, saying: "He is not a homophobe. This is getting ridiculous."
