---- — Alec Baldwin got himself fired from MSNBC because of homophobic comments he made recently.
After the actor went on another homophobic tirade earlier this month, the news network has finally decided to cut Baldwin loose. He hosted the poorly-rated weekly show, "Up Late with Alec Baldwin."
Sources close to the firing say the decision to axe Alec was based, in part, on his recent homophobic outbursts toward a photographer.
Alec immediately went into damage control mode after the incident — but it was pathetic — with the actor trotting out a male hairdresser to vouch for his love of gay people. He also spoke at a conference and professed his platonic love of several dudes.
A rep for MSNBC called the firing "a mutual parting" ... adding, "We wish Alec all the best."
