“My ill-advised attack on George Stark of the Daily Mail had absolutely nothing to do with issues of anyone’s sexual orientation,” Alec told GLAAD in a statement released to RumorFix. “My anger was directed at Mr. Stark for blatantly lying and disseminating libelous information about my wife and her conduct at our friend’s funeral service. As someone who fights against homophobia, I apologize. “
Alec also made a graphic reference to anal sex tweeting, “If put my foot up your f**ing a** George Stark, but I’m sure you’d dig it too much.”
His apology continued:
“I have worked, periodically, with numerous marriage equality organizations, especially over the past couple of years, to achieve the very rights that gay couples are earning by recent court decisions. I would not advocate violence against someone for being gay and I hope that my friends at GLAAD and the gay community understand that my attack on Mr. Stark in no way was the result of homophobia.”
Alec was originally upset because the Daily Mail reported that Baldwin and his wife Hilaria were tweeting during actor James Gandolfini’s funeral on Thursday — something they both vehemently deny.
