Alec Baldwin definitely has one very vocal and passionate supporter - his daughter Ireland. The 17-year-old model rushed to Twitter to defend her beleaguered father.
"My dad is far from a homophobe or a racist," she wrote.
"We all say things we don't mean. We all say things we can't take back. ... My point being, what my dad said was WRONG. What my dad felt WASN'T." This was in response to her father allegedly hurling anti-gay slurs at reporters positioned outside his apartment in New York.
The statuesque teenager whose mother is Kim Basinger, also voiced her opinion of the paparazzi that constantly hound her father and step-mother.
"Having paparazzi following my mom and I has not been thrilling," she tweeted. "Boundaries have to be made. Paparazzi have jobs to do, but some of them jeopardize people's lives and cross a line."
"My dad has an INFANT CHILD to protect…All the parents out there should understand. You would do anything to protect your baby."
