Anderson Cooper Calls Alec Baldwin’s Anti-Gay Slur Excuse ‘Ridiculous’

CooperBaldwinAfter his latest run-in with a paparazzo yesterday, MSNBC host Alec Baldwin took to Twitter to condemn anti-gay slurs, but not acknowledging that he used one. TMZ heard Baldwin call the photographer a “c*ocksucking f*g” during the incident Thursday afternoon.

That wasn’t enough for CNN’s Anderson Cooper who, this morning took some time out of his reporting in the Philippines to call out Baldwin for his excuse. Baldwin claims “acoustic analysis” would prove he used the word fathead. Those tweets have since been deleted from his Twitter account.

Baldwin has not yet responded to Cooper’s tweets, but the MSNBC host did respond to a local Fox reporter who was outside his home this morning. “You are as dumb as you look,” Baldwin said. “You are with Fox, right?”
