Alec Baldwin published a letter in New York Magazine announcing his retirement from public life after receiving a lot of flack for his recent behavior. Baldwin called out and burned bridges between himself and Shia Labeouf, Anderson Cooper, TMZ, MSNBC and New York City in his retirement letter. The letter circulated a fair amount, but a week or two later things blew over and nobody cared. He was then arrested shortly after for riding a bike against traffic in Manhattan. So much for trying to stay out of the public eye.
