Alec Baldwin defends daughter from Jay-Z and Kanye West Twitter mix up
On Sunday, September 18, Baldwin's daughter - named Ireland - took to the social networking site and wrote, "I love Jay-z. And Kanye. Together. I want to see them in Vegas! Who's coming with me?!"
She followed up the message with a simple tweet that featured the title of one of the pair's tracks, "N**gas In Paris- Jay Z/Kanye". Unfortunately, many of Ireland's followers were unaware of the reference and began branding her a racist.
Baldwin then stepped in to clarify the misconstrued tweet, writing "N**gas In Paris- Jay Z/Kanye' think this is reference 2 (sic) a celebration of hip-hop music in France. Just clearin' that up."
"Anyone who thinks that quoting the title of that song is racist is a disgrace. To the human race," he continued.
Ireland later apologised for the awkward mix up and remarked, "man if you slip once on twitter, people start flipping a s**t... I had no right to use the word and I apologize if I offended anyone. But I was just writing the title of a song. No need to bash me."
"Whatever man, I still love Kanye and Jay Z. And the album. And the song... This s**t's Cray (crazy)!!!! Ireland Baldwin is a racist everybody. who knew!"
