Alec Baldwin says he can no longer live in NYC. The actor wrote a huge essay for New York Magazine, and he comes off like a giant baby.
“I just can’t live in New York anymore,” he wrote in the cover story for the magazine which hits stands today. “Everything I hated about L.A. I’m beginning to crave … I want my newest child to have as normal and decent a life as I can provide. New York doesn’t seem the place for that anymore.”
This isn’t the first time Alex has made threats like this.
In the article, Alec, 55, defends himself against accusations of being a homophobe, which stemmed from a fight he had last November with a paparazzo, where he allegedly used an anti-gay slur.
“I’d never use that word,” he insisted, Saying people like Mayor de Blasio, “apparently gets his news from TMZ.”
Much of his article focused on MSNBC, the network that canceled his talk show following the fight with the photographer. “None of them are funny,” he said, “although that doesn’t prevent them from trying to be.” President Phil Griffin “couldn’t give a flying f**k about content.”
He claims MSNBC star Rachel Maddow was to blame for his firing, calling her “a phony who doesn’t have the same passion for the truth off-camera that she seems to have on the air.” He also labeled gay journalists who criticized him, such as Anderson Cooper and Andrew Sullivan, as being part of the “Gay Department Of Justice.” He then alluded to a “F-to-M tranny.” Classy.
He went on, “I loathe and despise the media in a way I did not think possible.”
