“Up Late With Alec Baldwin” has been canceled by MSNBC following the host’s homophobic outburst at a New York City photographer earlier this month.
“The decision has been made. He’s gone,” an insider at MSNBC told the New York Post. “The [parent company] Comcast guys have decided. Word is spreading through the building.”
The decision to fire Mr. Baldwin was made in part due to his “diva-like” behavior toward colleagues, the Post said.
A spokesman for Mr. Baldwin had an issue with the term “fired,” but said, “The show is not coming back. He had questions on whether he wanted to continue.”
