"Eighth degree, black belt idiots." "Dumbest bastards in the world." That's not Jack Donaghy talking about pinko liberals. That's Alec Baldwin talking about AOL homepage writers. But what's got him so heated?
Apparently it's a bit of selective misinterpretation that sent Baldwin on the warpath. As he writes over at The Huffington Post:
Today, on AOL's homepage, I am accused of insulting actor Jim Parsons for sending him a congratulatory gift basket, inside of which I added a card that read "Congratulations you talented, charming bastard."
I thought that was a joke. I think Parsons knew that. I think anyone on Earth could see that. Except the eighth degree, black belt idiots that compose the AOL homepage.
I'm still a loyal AOL user. In spite of the fact that its homepage content is written by the dumbest bastards in the world.
The lesson here is two-fold. One, do not twist the words of multiple Golden Globe Award winner Alec Baldwin. Two, there are loyal AOL users out there, and some of them are famous. [Huffington Post via Splitsider]
