CNN’s Anderson Cooper isn’t giving Alec Baldwin a pass after he used homophobic slurs to violently threaten a Daily Mail reporter on Thursday.
“Why does #AlecBaldwin get a pass when he uses gay slurs? If a conservative talked of beating up a ‘queen’ they would be vilified,” Cooper said via his official Twitter account.
As outlined by TheBlaze, Baldwin launched into a profane Twitter rant against Daily Mail reporter George Stark over a news report about his wife’s active Twitter feed during James Gandolfini’s funeral.
“I’m gonna find you George Stark, you toxic little queen, and I’m gonna f**k you… up,” one of his tweets read.
Baldwin denies his wife was tweeting during the funeral. The 55-year-old actor’s Twitter account was disabled after the series of violent tweets.
