Alec Baldwin's chat show 'Up Late' has been pulled for two weeks amid claims he used a homophobic slur against a photographer.
Alec Baldwin's talk show has been pulled off air for two weeks.
The late night American programme 'Up Late' has been removed from the Friday night slot by MSNBC after claims the former '30 Rock' actor made a homophobic slur against a photographer.
In a statement, the 55-year-old star said: ''I did not intend to hurt or offend anyone with my choice of words, but clearly I have - and for that I am deeply sorry.
''Words are important. I understand that, and will choose mine with great care going forward.
''What I said and did this week, as I was trying to protect my family, was offensive and unacceptable.
''Behaviour like this undermines hard-fought rights that I vigorously support.''
The star reportedly called the paparazzi photographer a ''f**'' hours after winning a court case against his stalker, but he said he didn't use the homophobic word and instead called the man a ''fat head''.
In a blog post on Huffington Post, the actor said the future of his talk show was unclear.
He wrote: ''Whether the show comes back at all is an issue right now.''
