The History Of White Celebrities Using The "N" Word

Alec Baldwin

Date: Sept. 18, 2011

Long before Gwyneth Paltrow fatefully referenced Jay-Z and Kanye's Watch The Throne hit, 30 Rock star Alec Baldwin caused a stir when he professed his enthusiasm for the track on Twitter, tweeting: "I love that song N*GGAS IN PARIS!!! I love Kanye!! I love @IrelandBBaldwin most of all!!!" Followed with, "Kanye and I are doing a song called N*GGAS IN MONTAUK. My album is called MY BEAUTIFUL PALE TWISTED FANTASY."

His tweets immediately garnered negative attention on the social network, prompting him to quickly counter with, "Anyone who thinks that quoting the title of that song is racist is a disgrace. To the human race."
