(Newser) – Alec Baldwin is reportedly out at MSNBC thanks to his recent anti-gay controversy. Insiders at the network tell Page Six that parent company Comcast decided to cancel Up Late With Alec Baldwin after the actor allegedly hurled an anti-gay slur at a photographer (and then tried to smooth things over by making a gay joke). Oh, and also, he wasn't a great co-worker: He allegedly demanded to use a separate make-up room, even though an employee with cancer is currently using it because she's sensitive to hairspray. When denied, he allegedly responded by yelling, "I don’t give a f--- if she has cancer or not, I want that f---ing makeup room." His spokesman confirms the show "is not coming back."
