Alec Baldwin deletes Twitter account after epic rant on UK press

Alec Baldwin apparently deleted his entire Twitter account after an epic Twitter rant against a Daily Mail reporter in which he characterized the reporter as a “toxic little queen” and threatened to “f**k [him] up” by inserting foot into said reporter’s ass.

Gawker reports that the meltdown happened after the Daily Mail published a report that Baldwin’s wife had tweeted throughout Gandolfini’s funeral service.

UPDATE – Alec Baldwin has given this statement to Gothamist:

“The idea of me calling this guy a ‘queen’ and that being something that people thought is homophobic, a queen to me has a different meaning. It’s somebody who’s just above. It doesn’t have any necessarily sexual connotations.

“To me a queen – I know women that act queeny, I know men that are straight that act queeny, and I know gay men that act queeny. It doesn’t have to be a definite sexual connotation, or a homophobic connotation. To me those are people who think the rules don’t apply to them.

“This guy could blatantly lie, I mean blatantly lie about my wife on the internet and there are just no rules that apply to him, but that’s outrageous to me.”
