Alec Baldwin - Alec Baldwin's Daughter Races To Dad's Defence Following Gay Slur Row

Alec Baldwin's model daughter Ireland has raced to her dad's defence amid reports suggesting the actor is homophobic.

The former 30 Rock star came under fire this past week (ends15Nov13) after using a gay slur during a street clash with a photographer that was caught on film.

Baldwin made an official apology for his rash remarks, insisting he did not "intend to hurt or offend anyone with my choice of words".

He added, "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."

And now the star's daughter, who was once the target of his temper when he called her a "rude, thoughtless, little pig" in an angry voicemail message that was leaked to the media, has spoken out to defend her dad.

Ireland Baldwin took to Twitter.com on Saturday (16Nov13) and wrote, "It takes a lot of strength for someone to release their anger. It takes a lot of strength and Support for someone to grow and become a better person. We all say things we don't mean. We all say things we can't take back.

"For someone who has battled with anger management issues, my dad has grown tremendously. My dad is far from a homophobe..."

She added, "What my dad said was Wrong. What my dad felt Wasn't. My dad has an Infant Child to protect. All the parents out there should understand. You would do anything to protect your baby... Now, let's all quit acting like children. Let my dad be and let him have his room to learn and enjoy his family."
