Breaking News

Alec Baldwin just played the, “I have a gay friend” card … putting his male hairdresser on the spot in front of reporters to vouch for his non-homophobia.

It”s shameless, it”s desperate … and quite frankly, it”s sad.

It wreaks of “dance monkey, dance” … with Alec asking him straight up — “Am I a homophobe”

The guy replied, “Yes, bigtime” … but it”s clear he”s joking.

Afterward, we spoke with the hairdresser, who”s openly gay, and he told us, “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.”

The guy says he was not aware of the video of Alec saying c**ksucking f*g” .. but says, “If he did say it … there was probably a good reason behind why.”
