Alec Baldwin Calls Reporter A 'Toxic Little Queen' [UPDATED]
But one lone wolf decided to take the opportunity to get on Twitter and get his bigot on, and that wolf is Alec Baldwin. After reading a story in the Daily Mail claiming (falsely, it turns out) that Baldwin's wife was tweeting during James Gandolfini's funeral, Baldwin jumped on social media and took the reporter to task.
And by took him to task, I mean unleashed a string of homophobic remarks. Baldwin has since deleted the account, but Gawker got a screengrab of the tweets beforehand. In them, he calls reporter George Stark a "toxic little queen" and says he will "fuck...you...up."
He also says, "If [sic] put my foot up your fucking ass, George Stark, but I'm sure you'd dig it too much."
Here are all the tweets:

UPDATE: Baldwin talked to our sister site Gothamist explaining why he's quitting Twitter for good and why he thinks the phrase "queen" has nothing to do with homosexuality.
