TMZ posted a video of the incident in which the actor is heard saying, "Get away from my wife and the baby with the camera." He's then heard calling the photog a "c-ksucking f-g" before getting into his car. The incident took place following news that Baldwin's accused stalker, Genevieve Sabourin, had been sentenced to jail.
After the video went viral, Baldwin, 55, issued an apology on Twitter:
Anti-gay slurs are wrong. They not only offend, but threaten hard fought tolerance of LGBT rights.— ABFoundation (@ABFalecbaldwin) November 14, 2013
I'm grateful to all of the ppl I meet + hear from who recognize that I would never say something to offend my friends in the gay community.— ABFoundation (@ABFalecbaldwin) November 14, 2013
1-Rich Ferraro from @glaad informs me that c'sucker is an anti-gay epithet. In which case I apologize and will retire it from my vocabulary.— ABFoundation (@ABFalecbaldwin) November 15, 2013
