We called it last night — just as we learned that “creepy ass cracker,” in the context of the George Zimmerman trial, isn’t necessarily racist and perhaps even a compliment, today brings another vocabulary lesson. Alec Baldwin’s wife Hilaria, defending her husband against charges of homophobia, would like her followers to click over to Gothamist and learn that “toxic little queen” isn’t a gay slur in her husband’s culture. Alec Baldwin explains:

Number two, 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.

Wow, good thing he cleared that up! That, along with the suggestion that reporter George Stark would actually enjoy Baldwin’s boot entering a certain orifice, had a lot of people concerned. GLAAD is OK with Baldwin’s explanation, though, as are most “rational people.” What’s really offensive is suggesting Alec Baldwin is homophobic.

So, we can all use that word now?

      Maybe, he liked Freddie Mercury and was praising him?NOT!!!!! If most of Baldwin’s friends are gay, why did he use the phrase in a derogatory way? Baldwin is a hateful, hypocrite, liberal. Liberal is equal to hypocrite and hater!!!

      I don’t think this woman is entirely aware of the world around her. After all, she did marry Alec Baldwin and seems very surprised at the public reaction to yet another of his public meltdowns. She comes off as being clueless.

    Why should he care. Baldwin has enough money, he can say what he wants. The very rich and the just getting by like many of us can pretty much tell it how we see it. Rather a luxury thanks to our 1st Amendment.

      Not to mention the ‘out of jail’ free card thanks to the LSM.

    Wow, she played the some/most/all of ‘my best friends are gay’ card faster than the any color Wild card in UNO. Too bad Paula Deen wasn’t allowed a do over for something she said 30 years ago and apologized for, along with asking forgiveness for being a flawed human being.

    So, what about all the other obnoxious things this creep has been caught saying, including calling his own daughter a pig? Just little slips of the tongue; clearly, Baldwin has his own language. And did you catch a picture of the wife at the funeral? Inappropriate much? Did she even know the deceased, or did she come to the funeral to get her picture taken. Anyone who would marry this oaf has serious stupid problems.

    oh snap, that’s right your a NYC out of touch liberal twisted female.

  • ObamaFail

    That’s the most tired excuse for intolerance in the book. Racists use that same excuse to hide their racism. “My best friends are black.” Now Alec Baldwin and his wife are using that but replacing black with gay. Only an idiot would fall for it.

    • mickeyco

      In high school, my best friend was black. Made for some interesting conversations with people who didn’t know it was true.

  • porgiefirefighter

    If Alec Baldwin calls me a “toxic little queen”, I’m kicking his creepy cracker ass.

  • Zach Smith

    So called liberals often will imply that people who disagree with them are gay. Obviously they consider this to be an insult. This makes me wonder how sincere they are in their newfound support for gay rights.

    • LegalizeShemp

      Good point, liberals often use the adjective “gay” to denigrate certain things they don’t like, like clothes, music, entertainment etc. Then they break out the “homophobia” moniker for anyone who has moral or religious objections to homosexuality.

  • LegalizeShemp

    Hilar-orrhea? I had a case of that once but a shot of penicillin cleared it up quickly. Yes, we know Hilarity, you would have NEVER married a homophobic man, unless of course he’s a rich left wing celebrity, then you’ll negotiate terms, right?

    • nickshaw

    NOT defending him at all, but there is a bit of a follow-up on this story:

    Daily Mail apologizes to Alec Baldwin for bogus Twitter story

    The actor went on a tirade after the Daily Mail accused his wife of tweeting during James Gandolfini’s funeral

    It turns out that the Daily Mail story that sent Alec Baldwin into a blind rage on Twitterwas based on inaccurate information.

    Daily Mail writer George Stark first reported that Baldwin’s wife, Hilaria, had beenrudely tweeting during the funeral of actor James Gandolfini, noting that the Twitter timestamps coincided with the time of the late “Sopranos” actor’s funeral.

    The allegation launched the hot-tempered Baldwin, who has also thrown tantrums on airplanes, into an offensive homophobic rant on Twitter before he deleted it.

    But thanks to a technical glitch on Twitter that reflected GMT instead of ET, it turns out that Baldwin was correct. An analysis of the source code of Hilaria Baldwin’s tweets reveals that she tweeted between 11 am and 2 pm, as opposed to 8 am to 11 am.

    The Daily Mail has stated that “the tweets did appear accurately timed on mobile devices such as smartphones and iPads,” but “the only way MailOnline was able to establish the REAL time the tweets were sent was by viewing the twitter web page source code, something almost no normal member of the public would ever do.”

    A MailOnline spokesman has apologized to the Baldwins, but asks for an apology in kind: “We accept Mrs Baldwin’s assertions that she did not Tweet from the funeral and apologise for any distress caused. But this was a genuine misunderstanding caused by a baffling defect in the Twitter platform and we would also call on Mr Baldwin to withdraw his homophobic and threatening remarks.”

    • nickshaw

      You’re right to not defend him.
      He obviously can’t control himself.
      He thinks he’s above us all. A queen, if you will. Particularly since GLAAD has his back.
      Next time he’ll be worse.

      And the withdrawal the Daily Mail asks for is pretty darned weak of them.
      Not that Baldwin will take them up on it.

    I don’t watch TV so I certainly can’t comment on his talent or lack thereof. I don’t read much in the paper, so I couldn’t say how many times he has gone off, although I have occasionally read of instances….. What I can say, is that I feel a man’s character can be judged by the relationship he has with his children. I know at one point he ranted at his daughter, but she spoke eloquently the past couple of weeks about what a great father he was. Any human can control their tongue and if they can’t take care of their children….they are nothing…I know many many men, “good men” who don’t spend time or money on taking care of their kids….

    “In her husband’s culture ‘queen’ has a different meaning”? Seriously? The little turd grew up in Massapequa NY, one town over from where I grew up. And believe me, there is very little ‘culture’ on Long Island. When a guy from Long Island calls another guy a queen, they are not saying he’s acting like Elizabeth II.

    And if I were to accept his extraordinarily pathetic definition of 'queeny' I've yet to see ANYONE act 'queenier' that dear Alec.
