Alec Baldwin 'Shocked' Anderson Cooper Labelled His Rant Homophobic

Alec Baldwin says he was taken aback when CNN's Anderson Cooper labelled his rant against a reporter homophobic.

Baldwin raged against 'Daily Mail' reporter George Stark in June after he reported that Baldwin's wife, Hilaria, was tweeting during James Gandolfini's funeral.

"George Stark, you lying little bitch. I am gonna f--- you up. I want all of my followers and beyond to straighten out this f---ing little bitch, George Stark," the '30 Rock' star said. "My wife and I attend a funeral to pay our respects to an old friend, and some toxic Brit writes this f---ing trash."

"I'd put my foot up your f---ing ass, George Stark, but I'm sure you'd dig it too much. I'm gonna find you, George Stark, you toxic little queen, and I'm gonna f--k... you up."

Baldwin later apologized, deleted his Twitter account, and said his comments were "in no way was the result of homophobia."

But Anderson Cooper wondered why Baldwin wasn't being criticized more for his outburst.

"Why does Alec Baldwin get a pass when he uses gay slurs?," asked Cooper on Twitter. "If a conservative talked of beating up a 'queen' they would be vilified."

Speaking to Howard Stern on Tuesday, Baldwin said he wasn't expecting being called out by the anchor.

"He attacked you!" Stern said.

"Anderson Cooper decides to, whatever word you want to use, I'm not going to say 'attacked,'" Baldwin said. "That was the one that shocked me the most."

Baldwin said that he would say "Nothing, actually" to Cooper if the two ever crossed paths.
