Alec Baldwin insists he doesn”t hate gays … just “queens” … and that”s just the beginning of the mind-numbingly stupid explanation he just released in the wake of his homophobic Twitter rant.
Baldwin called up a reporter for The Gothamist today … to address the backlash after he called for his fans to physically attack a “toxic little queen” reporter who wrote an article about his wife tweeting at James Gandolfini”s funeral.
Here”s what Baldwin had to say:
“The idea of me calling this guy a “queen” and that being something that people thought is homophobic … a queen to me has a different meaning. It’s somebody who’s just above. It doesn’t have any necessarily sexual connotations. To me a queen … I know women that act queeny, I know men that are straight that act queeny, and I know gay men that act queeny. It doesn’t have to be a definite sexual connotation, or a homophobic connotation. To me those are people who think the rules don’t apply to them.”

So let”s do some math. Queen + enjoying a foot up your ass = homophobic slur.
