Alec Baldwin's late-night talk show was pulled for two weeks after the actor was caught on camera hurling a homophobic slur at a photographer.
Baldwin’s weekly show “Up Late” was booted from its slot Friday night and won’t be back next week either. MSNBC pulled the plug on Friday — a day after he allegedly called a photographer a c---s---ing f-g.
After initially denying unleashing the hateful words, the “30 Rock” star admitted on Twitter that he had used an “anti-gay epithet.”

The ruckus erupted just minutes after Baldwin’s wife, Hilaria, insisted her husband didn’t have anger issues.
The Baldwin suspension comes on the heels of his triumph in court. A judge on Thursday found Genevieve Sabourin guilty of stalking and sent the obsessed actress to jail for seven months. But instead of a victory lap, the actor was in a full back pedal.
