‘My Capital One card just joined Westboro’: Company mocked for PR fail after Alec Baldwin meltdown

Mouth-foaming misogynist actor Alec Baldwin bid farewell to Twitter (again) after unleashing a torrent of violent, anti-gay hate on a Daily Mail writer this week. On Friday, he explained that in his culture, “toxic little queen” doesn’t mean what you think it means and there was no “homophobic connotation” in suggesting his target would enjoy a foot inserted where the sun don’t shine.

Baldwin’s wife, Hilaria, insisted Alec couldn’t possibly have used anti-gay slurs because “almost all of my best friends are gay.” (Flashback: When Baldwin was accused of a racist rant, he played the “some of my best grants are black” card.)

GLAAD finally weighed in, offering Baldwin a “Get Out of Homophobia Jail Free” card because, as TMZ put it, “we’re starf**kers.” But once again, Capital One’s pitiful PR machine has remained mum on its pitchman’s bigoted meltdown.

Way to go, Capital One!

But since Capital One does have a social media presence, the Twitterverse isn’t about to let it go to waste. Capital One tweets questions, Twitter users respond with mockery:

Others suggest new slogans for the conspicuously silent Capital One.

Parting thoughts for the flack behind the Capital One Twitter account:

  • 2ifbyT

    If people started dumping the cards, there would be a response.

    • Joe W.

      Yeah, but they can’t, because like crack cocaine, they are ass over tea kettle in debt and can’t pay it off or do without the thing. Sad, really….

    • beebop1952

      Their competition should use a Baldwin actalike and woo folks who think that a double standard is just not right.

    • http://evilbloggerlady.blogspot.com/ Evi L. Bloggerlady

      Alec Baldwin’s daughter Hilaria is defending him…

      But I agree, people should drop Capital One cards.

        Hilaria’s his pregnant wife.

        • http://evilbloggerlady.blogspot.com/ Evi L. Bloggerlady

          Eeeeewww. He married his daughter? He is creepier than I thought!

        • http://evilbloggerlady.blogspot.com/ Evi L. Bloggerlady

          Eeeewww. I tell you you give these Democrats an inch on “marriage equity” and they start marrying their own daughters!

    • MmeBB

      Did just that yesterday.

    • Jeremy

      Yeah but,that would require many low information voters and that won’t be easy.

  • Conrad2010

    WIll somebody explain how is it some “SOB Liberal” like Alec Baldwin can in anger & in public. Call people racist names almost on a regular basis w/out any consequence befalling him, never. “Capital One” has yet to say anything. I even Tweeted Capital One asking why. No reply have I gotten from then. Most likely will not.
    And then we have Paula Deen. Who after having a gun held to her head 30 years ago during a bank robbery. Goes home & in private & in anger, tells her husband what a “Nigger’ did to her earlier in the day. Only this one time did she use this word “N”-word that we know of. Unlike the Liberal Baldwin, her life has been turned into a living Hell. Why the differential treatment? Tell me, please! Somebody?

    • Robin Rountree

      I think it is the war one women the left keeps talking about!! We have finally found it!!!

    • grais

      There are answers but none of them is rational.
      Hypocrisy, hysteria, lies, ignorance, no functioning thought process, unsocial media, defective hearts….
      Baldwin threatens physical violence. I don’t know why the police haven’t been involved.
      Idiots (including the corps who dropped her) believe the Nat’l Enquirer’s deliberate distortions of a legal deposition, they go berserk, and Paula’s career, and the careers of all of those that she employs (many more than Baldwin does) are destroyed.
      The real answer to your question might be as simple as : Stupid people suck.

    • LegalizeShemp

      Still haven’t figured that one out eh? The answer lies in the person in question’s unwavering support of left wing causes. If the person is a true believer who supports Marxist economic policies, big government and wealth redistribution and of course, abortion on demand at any stage of pregnancy, that person gets a pass on all immoral and illegal personal behavior. However, if the person does not support any of those policies, that person is an enemy of the state and must be destroyed at every opportunity.

      • Kate

        Don’t forget that Paula Deen is an avid supporter of Obama and campaigned for him. He could have spoken out in support of her anytime (after all, he’s done it before with Jason Collins, Trayvon Martin, etc.). The fact that he let everyone tear her apart is, in my opinion, cowardly.

        • swen13

          Paula Deen looks like the Grandmother who raised him and paid for his college. A typical white woman. Pfft.

          • Jim Denney

            You really don’t think Granny paid for his college do you? #PellGrant, Foreign Student Aid programs, etc.

          • objectivefactsmatter

            The first chameleon POTUS.

        • objectivefactsmatter

          But she can be made to look like a conservative / Republican as she is thrown under the bus. That’s all that matters.

    • http://Twitter.com/jkerrysforehead John Kerry’s Forehead

      Paula Dean is an Obama supporter. Don’t confuse a southern drawl with conservatism. She supported Obama in both the 2008 & 2012 elections.

      So it just shows which sponsors are willing to take a stand against racially or socially divisive rhetoric. This isn’t a left or right thing….unless people are confusing a southern drawl with being conservative.

      And I don’t know all the facts about the Deen case but I keep reading different versions. Your version is new to me. First version was she said N once 20 years ago, then 30, then I read excerpts from the complaint filed against her included repeated racial slurs and innuendos and sexually explicit language and actions in the workplace. Now your version about some bank robbery.

      Keep it real. I am not taking sides, just would like to keep things in perspective and use facts when arguing a point.

    • Rightturn

      Homosexuals aren’t even offended by this, the smart business strategy is definitely to stay quiet on it seeing as the only people trying to make any noise are conservatives who frequent this site.

      Practically all of those Twitter accounts quoted above follow Twitchy, and therefore have essentially already vowed to never touch Capital One- so it makes sense to ignore it if it’s not hurting the business.

    • Ken Alan Draper

      well, they are both liberal Obamabots, but you see Dean has a southern accent so she just has to be racist, whereas Baldwin’s accent is New York Yankee so he can’t be rascist. I’m a Hoosier decended from the original settlers who came from Virginia & North Carolina, I go to the north/northeast they make a big deal about my “ACCENT”. compared to actual southerners, which are darn good people for the most part, I really don’t have an accent.

      • objectivefactsmatter

        It’s a little more complicated than that, but what you say is true and definitely part of the explanation. It’s about “optics” as those lunatics some times like to say.

  • VotingForZombieReagan2016

    I wish I had a Capital One card just so I could cancel it. It would be so darn satisfying!

    • HWarrior13

      I do…and I did, and it was.


        I love it!

      If it might be of any conciliation, you could print this and tape it to a dartboard.

      • Aitch748

        Yeah, doesn’t that “derp derp” expression on his face make you want to throw things at him? :-)

      • beebop1952

      I went as far as e-mailing Cap-One to tell them I was dropping my card. Oh-I forgot-I don’t have a Cap-One card. But I figure it’s one more e-mail they’ll have to dig through.

  • SophieRo3

    1st tweet:

    I’m gonna find you, George Stark, you toxic litte queen, and I’m gonna f*ck you…up.’

    2nd tweet:

    ‘If put my foot up your f*cking ass, George Stark, but I’m sure you’d dig it too much.’

    So, obviously, Alec is telling the truth. Calling a guy, who would ‘dig’ Baldwin’s foot up his ‘f*cking ass’ ‘too much,’ a ‘toxic little queen’ couldn’t possibly have ANYTHING to do with sexual orientation or anything.

    Ya see, when Baldwin had his Kanye fantasy and talked about making a song called ‘Ni**as In Montauk,’ he wasn’ts not using the n-word either. He really meant ‘Kanye and Dem Creepy, White Cracka A$$es in Montauk’ … and, as we all know, there’s nothing racist about calling white people ‘creepy, white cracka.’


    • stratman51

      In Liberaland, you can think, say, or do ANYTHING, as long as your “culture” supports it. Hey, some cultures support stoning women, raping 6 year-olds, and beheading non-believers…no problem.

  • John Bibb

    I had a Capital One credit card. I had an identity theft incident 4 years ago. Dealing with their credit card “security” group was truly frustrating. Endless email and letter exchanges to their Salt Lake City, Utah offices. A useless card due to the many random declining of my purchases. I finally cancelled the card–but they took years to stop sending me statements and offers.
    I think that (smart!) Alec Baldwin is golden. The Viking crew in their ads is far smarter than their management. And the goat is the “brains” of the operation!

  • HWarrior13

    Cancelled my Capitol One card about a week after cancelling HBO for employing misogynist Bill Maher.

    • HWarrior13

      I forgot…also cancelled Netflix for trashing Sarah Palin.

      While I’m not her biggest fan, I don’t like businesses that get political.

      • Liz

        I did the same thing. Capitol One gone didn’t have HBO and I cancelled NetFlix for backing the monstrous tax hikes here in CA.

    • mickeyco

      You know, if we keep boycotting stuff, we’re going to end up shopping only at mom & pops’, never eating at a restaurant, never going to a movie…….

      • Orwellian_Dilemma

        You say that like it’s a bad thing. . . .

        • mickeyco

          Great response.

      • HWarrior13

        And the problem with that would be…????

  • NixTyranny

    Cap One should become an Equal Opportunity Employer by signing Paula Deen to do commercials with Alec Baldwin.

      That’s awesome.

      • Jeremy

        yeah I love it.

  • Michelle

    Cut up my two Capital One credit cards the night this all went down. Put them in the mail with a letter explaining why and w/ a copy of his tweets. I’m as disgusted by his gay slurs as I am about his threats to physically harm Stark. Shame on Capital One for remaining quiet. They may not drop him, but I am content my money no longer goes toward Baldwin’s paycheck. Opened a new card w/ another company and did a 0% interest balance transfer.

    • mickeyco

      You’re so lucky. I got rid of all my cards a year ago. Darn it.

    • Jeremy

      There needs to be thousands of people doing this and maybe Capitol One will be forced to listen but,until that happens they won’t do anything.

  • http://Twitter.com/jkerrysforehead John Kerry’s Forehead

    Yet another meaningless distraction to take the focus off the fact the POTUS and his ilk are rushing us all down a path of socialist tyrrany. Benghazi, IRS, Fast & Furious, AP, NSA, Shamnesty, just to name a few. Zimmerman, Deen, now Baldwin are all just distractions to keep the small-minded BO supporters focused on stupidity. Keep us all divided, the communist way.

  • nickshaw

    “In his culture”?
    Oh yeah, I forgot he was a lib’rul for a sec there.

    • Chip

      He is whatever it takes to keep his blubbering face on the screen….

    • grais

      Yeah, his “culture.” Too funny.
      His “culture” is White Privilege
      His heritage is Blue Blooded.
      And he turned out to be a violent, creepy-ass cracker who lies.

  • ELC

    I think the best smack would be if people cut their Capital One credit cards. Show the company that loyalty to a person like Alec Baldwin is not what the public wants to endorse.

  • ernst1776

    Just sent off a snail mail to CapOne saying I will be cancelling my card if they don’t deal with Alec Baldwin.

  • Timmmmm

    His head is going to explode. He has serious anger issues.

    • mickeyco

      I didn’t expect him to last this long without seriously hurting or killing someone.

  • Jennifer Hendricks

    You can always transfer the balance to another card. Use force with customer service.

  • Jim Denney

    I think you guys are being too harsh on Alec Baldwin & @CapitalOne. After all, I’m sure Alec has binders full of gay friends.

  • parapher

    Capital One, Morality Second

  • nickdqwk

    Remember folks ING on line banking is now @CapitolOne on line banking. Closing all my Capitol One services.

    This gut is such an over-rated twit. glad he’s off the Twitter course..

    Paula Dean = Conservative Southerner = SCREWED! Baldwin = Pompus Liberal Bas**** = Worshipped/Forgiven/Nothing-to-see-here.
