Alec Baldwin is Sorry if He Offended You

Alec Baldwin yelled at his daughter, and he's really really sorry if it upset you. Well thank God for that.

In a statement released at alecbaldwin.com Baldwin lashed out at Kim Basinger and proceeded to apologize for losing his temper. Below is the statment in its entirety:

Thank you to everyone who has posted messages of suppport and understanding. Naturally, it is not best for a parent to lose their temper with their child. Everyone who knows me privately knows that I have endured a great deal over the last several years in my custody litigation. Everyone who knows me privately knows that certain people will go to any lengths to embarass me and to disrupt my relationship with my daughter.

In such public cases, your opponents attempt to take a picture of you on your worst day and insist that this is who you are as a person. Outside the doors of divorce court, I have friends, I have respect from people I work with and I have a normal relationship with my daughter. All of that is threatened whenever one enters a court room.

Although I have been told by numerous people not to worry too much, as all parents lose their patience with their kids, I am most saddened that this was released to the media because of what it does to a child. I'm sorry, as everyone who knows me is aware, for losing my temper with my child. I have been driven to the edge by parental alienation for many years now. You have to go through this to understand. ( Although I hope you never do.) I am sorry for what happened. But I am equally sorry that a court order was violated, which had deliberately been put under seal in this case.

Once my book is published, I'm sure more people will understand the incredible strains created by parental alienation.

In the meantime, I'm sorry to anyone who's taken offense from this episode.


So uh...yea. There's gonna be a book. I'm assuming the title will be "I'm an Overbearing Asshole of a Man" or something similar. You know, this has been a bad week for stars falling out of my good graces. I mean...he's the only good Baldwin left, and then THIS happens. And yes, I know, everyone loses patience with their children and we'd all be embarrassed to hear audio playback of ourselves losing our cool and blah blah blah...but c'mon. Seriously? If you heard a dad in Wal-mart calling their child a "thoughtless little pig" and threatening to "straighten your ass out," and closing it out with a hearty "you better be ready" you'd close the "terrible abusive parent" book on him pretty quickly. Why should it be different with Alec Baldwin? Oh, that's right. Because he's rich, funny, and apparently has a book deal to make this all alright. Let's just say that I've got a book deal too, so you should definitely excuse me when I say: Alec Baldwin, you're a twat.
