    Hypocrite Alec Baldwin quits Twitter, says it’s full of ‘a–holes’

    By Kenneth Garger - Page Six


    A post shared by on


    Alec Baldwin on Wednesday deactivated his Twitter account — complaining the social media platform is full of “a–holes.”

    The 62-year-old actor made the decision after getting skewered on Twitter for commenting about Gillian Anderson’s use of an American accent while accepting a Golden Globe on Sunday.

    The former “30 Rock” star fumed that Twitter is where “all the a–holes in the United States and beyond go to get their advanced degrees in a–holines.”

    He added: “You can’t do any irony in the United States anymore because the United States is such an uptight, stressed out place.”

    Addressing news of Anderson’s accent-switch earlier in the day, Baldwin tweeted, “Switching accents? That sounds … fascinating.”

    The actor’s wife, Hilaria Baldwin, was recently roiled in controversy for her fluctuating Spanish accent while leading people to believe she was raised in the country, when, in fact, she grew up in Boston.

    “The difference is Gillian lived in London during her childhood and lives there so an accent developed. She’s never denied her Americanism. Big fan of yours, but this is an awful take,” one person commented on Baldwin’s tweet.

    Another Twitter user wrote: “Except Anderson was really raised in London. Born in the US and raised in PR and London.”

    Baldwin, in a nearly 10-minute video that he recorded while driving home from work, said his tweet was in no way an insult to Anderson.

    “When I made that comment about people switching cultures, if you will. It was in no way meant to be derogatory toward someone who I admire,” he said, without naming the actress.

    The really extremely smug assholes from hollyweird are most likely the ones who enjoy their compromises the most

    The guy's full of bitterness. Why he needs to go on Twitter and Instagram for validation beats me.

    Frankly, I think he's bored out of his f****** mind.
