Alec Baldwin Jokingly Asks a Man to Be His Lover Amid Gay Slur Backlash


Alec Baldwin


During a tech conference in San Fransisco, the '30 Rock' alum makes the joke in attempt to defuse the controversy over the words 'c**ksucking f*g' he used when berating a paparazzo last week.

Alec Baldwin jokingly professed his love for another man as he attempted to defuse the controversy sparked by a video featuring him berating a paparazzo with what sounded like a gay slur. The former "30 Rock" star was in front of a large crowd at a tech conference in San Francisco on Wednesday, November 20 when he asked a male member of his entourage to stand up.

"I want you to be my lover, Matt," Baldwin then told the man as quoted by Associated Press. "I love you, Matt. I love you in that way." Once the crowd's laughter had subsided, the 55-year-old actor reportedly added that he had loved some men more than women in his life, though not in a "sexual" way.

During the event, Baldwin also told the crowd that he hoped his 3-month-old daughter learns to control her temper better than he has as an adult. He also said that he felt the need to choose his words more carefully in the future.

"If in any context in the world that we live in today, if any word is remotely offensive to people, then I'm perfectly willing to learn a different word," he said.

Last week, Baldwin received many backlashes after being caught using the words "c**ksucking f*g" during an unwanted encounter with a photographer outside his house. He later took to Twitter to clarify that he used the word "fathead." As a result of the controversy, MSNBC suspended his talk show, "Up Late With Alec Baldwin".
