Alec Baldwin is being accused of ‘degrading’ gay people by GLAAD in new video released by TMZ.
In the video, the 30 Rock actor is heard calling a photographer a ‘c**ksucker’ although a media storm has been created after it was suggested that Baldwin actually called a photographer a ‘C**ksucking F*g head’. Baldwin is insisting that he said ‘Fathead’ and has threatened to sue TMZ for suggesting that he used a homophobic word.
Baldwin said that acoustic analysis of the recording proves the word said was ‘fathead.’

In tweets released by GLAAD the organisation said:
‘Mr. Baldwin can’t lend his support for equality on paper, while degrading gay people in practice,
‘It’s clearly time Mr. Baldwin listens to the calls from so many LGBT people and allies to end this pattern of anti-gay slurs.’
Baldwin took his own Tweet feed to reply:
‘If c’sucker offends, then I apologize. Anti-gay? Never.’
He later delete that message and offered:
‘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,’ he tweeted.
‘2- you learn something new every day.’
The incident happened outside his apartment, after the sentencing of his stalker Genevieve Sabourin in New York.
