After MSNBC suspended Alec Baldwin’s “Up Late,” the actor addressed the incident in a blog post Sunday, denying “with complete confidence” that he used any homophobic slur  during a run-in with media last week and defended his longstanding support for gay rights.

“I never used the word f*****t in the tape recording being offered as evidence against me,” Baldwin writes. He follows it up with: “What word is said right after the other choice word I use is unclear.” Hmmm…

The 55-year-old star also hinted at the uncertain fate of his show, writing “whether the show comes back is at issue right now.”

Baldwin’s daughter Ireland took to Twitter to defend her father’s reputation Saturday night. She explained he’s not a racist or homophobic, but instead copes with anger issues.
