Leading Conservatives Call on Capital One to Fire Alec Baldwin
Have you heard about Alec Baldwin’s homophobic comments on Twitter? You certainly should have after he said this (Warning: Obscene language):
The fact that Alec Baldwin said this and was just excused for it without a second thought is absolutely disgusting to me. So, I reached out to my friend Jimmy LaSalvia, who is one of the original co-founders of GOProud, and we decided to do something about it.
We’re calling on Capital One to fire Alec Baldwin for his comments and as you’re about to see, we’re not alone. A number of other conservatives are standing with us.

Dear Mr. Fairbank,
We are writing to express our outrage at the recent homophobic statements made by your spokesman Alec Baldwin. Those vile anti-gay comments have no place in public discourse and reflect poorly on Capital One.
Thus far, you have chosen to show your approval of his statements by condoning them with your silence. You should denounce Mr. Baldwin’s statements and he should be released from his contract with Capital One.
We will urge all Americans to stand up to homophobia and anti-gay bigotry by standing with us against Alec Baldwin and the company he represents.
