Alec Baldwin Goes After Anderson Cooper For Labeling His 'Toxic Queen' Twitter Rant As Homophobic: VIDEO

Screen Shot 2013-07-24 at 1.23.15 PM

On Tuesday, Alec Baldwin stopped by The Howard Stern Show to discuss, among other things, his Twitter rant last month against a Daily Mail reporter in which he characterized the reporter as a 'toxic little queen' and called on his followers to 'straighten out this f*cking little bitch.'

While on the subject, Baldwin lashed out at Anderson Cooper for posting the following tweet in the wake of the controversy:

"Why does #AlecBaldwin get a pass when he uses gay slurs? If a conservative talked of beating up a "queen" they would be vilified."

Said Baldwin:

"Anderson Cooper has a job to do. And that job is to try to reinforce his credibility in the gay community after the fact that you couldn't get him out of the closet for 10 years with a canister of tear gas. Now he's the sheriff. Now he's running around writing everybody a ticket!"

In an earlier article we reported on, Baldwin attempted to downplay accusations that his rant was homophobic, saying:

"The idea of me calling this guy a 'queen' and that being something that people thought is homophobic...a queen to me has a different meaning. It's somebody who's just above. It doesn't have any necessarily sexual connotations. To me a queen...I know women that act queeny, I know men that are straight that act queeny, and I know gay men that act queeny. It doesn't have to be a definite sexual connotation, or a homophobic connotation. To me those are people who think the rules don't apply to them."

Andy pointed out that 'queen' appears to be one of Baldwin's more popular slurs. In 2011, he made a few headlines with a similar Twitter rant, although that one was directed at an 'uptight queen' Starbucks barista named Jay with an 'attitude problem.'

Donald Trump appeared on the Howard Stern show yesterday and revealed that despite his lunch with George Takei last December, he still hasn't evolved on a certain issue.

Says Stern: "You're for gay marriage."

Replies Trump. "Well, I'm not...It's not an argument that you know I wanna really, cause it's never been an argument that's been discussed with me that much. People know it's not my thing one way or the other..."

Victoria Jackson Tells Howard Stern She Doesn't Want to 'Make God Mad' by Letting Gays Marry: VIDEO

Jackson

"I don't think there is such a thing as gay marriage," former SNL castmember-turned-wingnut Victoria Jackson tells Howard Stern, and we can't make it so because "that would make God mad."

Adds Jackson: "You have to take it up with God. God made the rules. He made a man and woman's bodies fit together, he made the Ten Commandments. I believe the Bible is God's word and I base all my world view on the Bible...I have gay friends ... I don't make their identity their sexuality. To me, he's my fun, theatre-loving, funny friend ... why is his identity his sexuality."

Howard Stern Won't Patronize Anti-Gay Chick-fil-A: VIDEO

Stern

Missed this in the flood of news last week, but thought I'd post it for the record.

Said Stern, in part:

"I don't really care what the political beliefs are of a corporation...When you’re in business, you don’t want to turn off anybody. It’s the smart way to do business, because while I’m not gay, I do support gay marriage... Because really what the guy is saying is 'oh sure anyone can eat here but our money and our beliefs are that anyone who wants to be married who is gay is wrong'. Now that's a pompous statement for a guy who makes chicken for a living....Don’t come out as a corporation against anybody. OK, if you want to come out against Hitler, I’ll back you on that. But, just keep your mouths shut."
