Alec Baldwin was accused of yelling a homophobic slur at a paparazzo, and went into yet another Twitter rant on Nov. 14, 2013 to defend himself. His tweets read in part: "If c'sucker offends, then I apologize. Anti-gay? ...I'm grateful to all of the ppl I meet + hear from who recognize that I would never say something to offend my friends in the gay community. ...Anti-gay slurs are wrong. They not only offend, but threaten hard fought tolerance of LGBT rights."
GLAAD (Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation) also responded via Twitter to Baldwin's alleged outburst, tweeting: "It's clearly time Mr. Baldwin listens to the calls from so many LGBT people and allies to end this pattern of anti-gay slurs. ...Mr. Baldwin can't lend his support for equality on paper, while degrading gay people in practice."
