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.
Ã¢â¬ÅI just canÃ¢â¬â¢t live in New York anymore,Ã¢â¬Â he wrote in the cover story for the magazine which hits stands today. Ã¢â¬ÅEverything I hated about L.A. IÃ¢â¬â¢m beginning to crave … I want my newest child to have as normal and decent a life as I can provide. New York doesnÃ¢â¬â¢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.
Ã¢â¬ÅIÃ¢â¬â¢d never use that word,Ã¢â¬Â he insisted, Saying people like Mayor de Blasio, Ã¢â¬Åapparently gets his news from TMZ.Ã¢â¬Â
Much of his article focused on MSNBC, the network that canceled his talk show following the fight with the photographer. Ã¢â¬ÅNone of them are funny,Ã¢â¬Â he said, Ã¢â¬Åalthough that doesnÃ¢â¬â¢t prevent them from trying to be.Ã¢â¬Â President Phil Griffin “couldnÃ¢â¬â¢t give a flying f**k about content.”
He claims MSNBC star Rachel Maddow was to blame for his firing, calling her Ã¢â¬Åa phony who doesnÃ¢â¬â¢t have the same passion for the truth off-camera that she seems to have on the air.Ã¢â¬Â 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, Ã¢â¬ÅI loathe and despise the media in a way I did not think possible.Ã¢â¬Â
