Biting the hand that feeds, Alec Baldwin takes to Twitter to denounce celebrity culture

- The Washington Times - Thursday, December 5, 2013

Alec Baldwin, one of the reigning kings of Hollywood celebrity circles, took to Twitter to rant on his latest topic — curiously, the degrading culture of America due to worship of star-studded personalities.

He tweeted, under his ABFoundation handle, Breitbart reported: "The culture of this country is doomed so long as this celebrity scrutiny/diversion/obsession continues. And all of the attendant destruction."

As Breitbart reported, the context of Mr. Baldwin's tweet wasn't apparent. On one hand, he could have been referring to the paparazzi he's fought with on numerous occasions. On the other, he could be talking about his much-reported negative comments about gays that ultimately led MSNBC to cancel his political talk show.

Regardless, Mr. Baldwin's own celebrity status is no small thing. Celebrity Networth reported that the actor has a net worth of $65 million, due in part to his movie appearances and also in part to the lucrative advertising deals he's picked up along the way — from companies that want to capitalize on his star power.
