The Hollywood Reporter said MSNBC has reportedly cancelled Alec Baldwin’s ‘Up Late‘ show amid fallout from his use of a guy slur after his latest scuffle with the paparazzi. The homophobic slur resulted in a two-week suspension and has now led to a ‘mutual parting.’
The Hollywood Reporter confirms that the planned Nov. 29 episode, what was to be its first back from a two-week suspension, will not air — and the series has been pulled from the schedule entirely, as first reported by the New York Post. The network and Baldwin rep Matthew Hiltzik issued the following shortly after: “We are jointly confirming that Up Latewill not continue on MSNBC.”
Baldwin had alluded as much in a recent editorial,expressing his doubt that the series would come back from its scandal-prompted hiatus. “This is a mutual parting and we wish Alec all the best,” a MSNBC rep noted in a statement.
Instead of fading away with some dignity after uttering the despicable gay slur “c**k-sucking fag,” and admitting he was wrong, Alec Baldwin is blaming MSNBC for killing his show. He also said they canned his show but kept Martin Bashir on despite his comments calling for someone to sh*t in Sarah Palin’s mouth. Narcissist or sociopath? Never mind the fact that the show was boring…
