Anderson Cooper is slamming Alec Baldwin for calling Daily Mail reporter George Stark a “toxic little queen” and “lying little b*tch” and then saying his rant was not homophobic in a statement to GLAAD.

The CNN host, who last year officially came out as gay, tweeted on Friday, “Why does#AlecBaldwin get a pass when he uses gay slurs? If a conservative talked of beating up a ‘queen’ they would be vilified.”

Cooper then retweeted a post from CNN producer Steve Krakauer, who quoted the part of Baldwin’s tirade against Stark which read, “[I’d] put my foot up your f**king ass, George Stark, but I’m sure you’d dig it too much.”

Krakauer’s tweet asked, “What does that mean, Alec?”

Baldwin, for his part, said he’s taking another hiatus from Twitter.

What do you think of Cooper’s take on the Baldwin incident?
