MSNBC has parted ways with Alec Baldwin after the actor recently hurled an anti-gay slur at a photographer, MSNBC and a representative for Baldwin confirmed to TheBlaze.

“We are jointly confirming that UP LATE will not continue on MSNBC," Baldwin representative Matthew Hiltzik and MSNBC said in an email Tuesday.

"This is a mutual parting and we wish Alec all the best," an MSNBC representative added.

Earlier this month, the cable news network had suspended the actor's weekly talk show for two episodes after he was captured on video hurling an anti-gay insult at a photographer.

The slur was widely condemned, with CNN's Anderson Cooper and blogger Andrew Sullivan blasting Baldwin for the outburst.
