Alec Baldwin Allegedly Fired From MSNBC For Basically Being Jack Donaghy
Did you love Alec Baldwin in 30 Rock? Wasn’t he sort of delightfully terrible? A caricature of every bad diva boss you’ve ever had — the people who couldn’t make their own coffee, even though it was a fucking Keurig machine, the people who demanded you literally be in two places at once, the people who threw tantrums over having to use the same pens that everyone else did. Apparently, that is actually how Alec Baldwin is in real life, which is much less amusing, sadly, and it appears that MSNBC is unamused as well and is canning his ass.
Baldwin was suspended from his chat show that we have never watched, Getting Drunk With Alec Jack Baldwin Donaghy, or whatever it was called, for yelling at a photographer and telling him he was a cocksucking fag or maybe a cocksucking fathead, but it was all OK because he has a gay hairdresser he can trot out that magically erases gay slurs. Handy!
Besides being Redface McScreamy all over the place, Baldwin also was busy being as prima donna terrible as he could manage.
Besides demanding a humidifier because he claimed the air at 30 Rock was too dry, Baldwin alienated staffers when he demanded a separate makeup room being used by a woman with cancer who is sensitive to hairspray.
When Baldwin was told he couldn’t have his way, he allegedly bellowed at the top of his lungs, “I don’t give a f?-?-?k if she has cancer or not, I want that f?-?-?king makeup room.”
You guys that is really actually quite terrible! The humidifier thing is meh. If we were rich and talked all day, we’d want to keep our throat all nice and lubricated so we could avoid the dreaded Marco Rubio water grab mid-sentence.
But tossing the cancer lady out of the makeup room? Really? Do not do that! You are not nearly a big enough star to behave that way and get away with it, Alec Baldwin. MSNBC seems to agree with this and is kicking you to the curb, which means we will now have to endure one million conservative columnists celebrating your ignominious exit. Be better next time, Alec Baldwin. Oh right, this was next time.
We denounce you and reject you, Alec Baldwin. Go hang out with John Edwards maybe?
