Alec Baldwin Probably Calls His Daughter A Pig Everyday

Add 16-year-old Ireland Baldwin to the list of celebrities (or celebrity relations, at least) to downplay verbal or physical abuse.

Ireland tells Us Weekly that her dad Alec’s voicemail where he famously called her a “little pig,” threatened to hit her with a brick, and asked her to relay the message “go fuck herself” to her mother, wasn’t a big deal. Here’s her explanation of the incident:

“The only problem with that voicemail was that people made it out to be a way bigger deal than it was, he’s said stuff like that before just because he’s frustrated. For me it was like, ‘OK, whatever.’ I called him back and I was like, ‘Sorry Dad, I didn’t have my phone.’ That was it.”

I think that pretty much means that it’s an everyday occurrence, and that he’s said much worse. All I know is, I’m getting a bit sick of the public’s varied levels of forgiveness.

Alec Baldwin may be funny on 30 Rock and Saturday Night Live, but I’m not giving him a pass based on “talent.” The same goes for Chad Johnson, Serena Williams, Charlie Sheen, Michael Vick, and Chris Brown.

It’s fine to admire their body of work (except Chris Brown) or athletic ability but please stop forgetting that these people are, in one way or another, aggressive assholes.
