After Alec Baldwin's angry outbursts at reporter and photographers over the last week (not to mention allegations that he used a homophobic slur towards one), he still has one very big supporter in his daughter Ireland.
On Saturday the aspiring model took to her Twitter to defend her dad and wrote:
- "It takes a lot of strength for someone to release their anger. It takes a lot of strength and SUPPORT for someone to grow and become a better person. We all say things we don't mean. We all say things we can't take back. For someone who has battled with anger management issues, my dad has grown tremendously. My dad is far from a homophobe or a racist. My point being, what my dad said was WRONG. What my dad felt WASN'T. My dad has an INFANT CHILD to protect. All the parents out there should understand. You would do anything to protect your baby. Now, let's all quit acting like children. Let my dad be and let him have his room to learn and enjoy his family."
For his part, Baldwin issued his own apology and said:
- "I did not intend to hurt or offend anyone with my choice of words, but clearly I have – and for that I am deeply sorry. Words are important. I understand that, and will choose mine with great care going forward. What I said and did this week, as I was trying to protect my family, was offensive and unacceptable. Behavior like this undermines hard-fought rights that I vigorously support. I understand 'Up Late' will be taken off the schedule for tonight and next week."
We think actions speak louder than words -- can Alec control his temper and his foul mouth?
