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.
