Alec Baldwin unleashed a string of homophobic slurs against a news website reporter Thursday, after the man wrote that Alec’s wife Hilaria Thomas had tweeted during actor James Gandolfini’s funeral. Baldwin’s profanity-ridden tirade was aimed at “Mail Online” writer George Stark, who claimed in a story that Thomas had tweeted about smoothies and shopping during the funeral service in New York. Baldwin’s latest Twitter outburst quickly turned ugly, as he spewed several anti-gay insults at Stark, according to the Daily News on Friday, June 28. Some are now noting the hypocrisy between how Alec Baldwin seems to come through all of his embarrassing hate-filled tantrums unscathed, while Paula Deen’s recent scandal from many years ago has virtually shut down her career.
“(I’d) put my foot up your f—king ass, George Stark, but I’m sure you’d dig it too much”, Baldwin wrote, adding, “I’m gonna find you, George Stark, you toxic little queen, and I’m gonna f—k…you…up”.
Not only did Baldwin use those homophobic slurs, but referred to Stark several times as a “little bitch”. TMZ writes that, “Alec Baldwin puts Paula Deen to shame in the bigotry department”, adding he, “showed his true colors with a hate-filled tirade that targeted gays”.

Dan Gainor, vice president of business and culture for Media Research Center, told FOX411 that he doubts Baldwin’s endorsement deals will suffer as a result of these latest tweets.
Gainor explained how this points up the hypocrisy in the media as Paula Deen says something bad 30 years ago and it destroys her career, but Alec Baldwin has multiple meltdowns and his career goes on intact.
Gainor points out for examples the time Baldwin was kicked off a plane for not following the rules and then ranted on Twitter about it, as well as the infamous, awful recording of the “30 Rock” actor screaming expletives over the phone at his young daughter.
“New York Post” photographer G.N. Miller claimed Baldwin called him a “coon” and a “crackhead” during a February altercation. The 55 year-old actor denies the accusation, according to Fox.
It does appear Alec’s wife did not in fact tweet during the service. Her phone was apparently in the car at the time.
The tweet confusion was explained by her as being caused by her re-tweeting messages with earlier timestamps as the two rode home from the funeral.
But, while it’s perfectly okay to vigorously defend her, many are saying that Baldwin once again took things too far with his vulgar and vitriolic messages.
Baldwin shut down his Twitter account after his explosion.
