Philippine Senator threatens to beat Alec Baldwin over joke

Posted: 09:44 AM ET

Alec Baldwin's joke about getting a Filipino mail-order bride provoked a sharp response in the Philippines, with one senator saying Monday that the "30 Rock" star faces violence if he ever visits.

Baldwin, 51, who is divorced with a teenage daughter, said in a May 12 interview on "The Late Show" with David Letterman that he would love to have more children.

The Emmy-winning actor quipped that he was "thinking about getting a Filipino mail-order bride at this point ... or a Russian one."

Hi, can people please leave Alec Baldwin alone. Why is he everyones whipping boy all the time? Its getting very old and tired now. Am not a yank, but sheese its really boring and lacks intelligence to keep on someone who made have been joking, has had personal life torn apart in public. Makes those who moan on abouts Alec Baldwin, small minded attention seeking mongers, quite infantile behavoir.
Just stop it already, move on. Why not place your efforts in helping others, and doing something positive. Am sure Alec Baldwin is laughing and not shaking in his boots, hes prolly shaking his arse, thinking, 'oh yeah?..beat this!' Everyone lighten up, get a funny bone will ya?

Thank you Larry King, am on twitter too mate x Cheers x

Father of the year he is NOT. At 51 he doesn't need anymore kids.

Yes he was insulting.....and he should consider a vasectomy....after the way he called his daughter a "pig" celebrities are just full of it....and nothing applies to them. I'll just turn the channel....which is what I do when this fool is on TV. Please I hope he doesn't write a book.

Nobody really seems surprised by the fact that you can go on the Internet and actually get a Phillipine or Russian mail order bride-I find that extremely interesting.......

No, I don't find it insulting. I guess he can't find a good woman here, or he just doesn't have the time.
