MSNBC announced Friday that "Up Late With Alec Baldwin" had been pulled from the network's schedule for the next two weeks, following the actor's calling a photographer either a "cocksucking fag" or a "cocksucking fathead," as Baldwin maintained on Thursday.

The actor posted a message of apology on MSNBC.com:

I would like to address the comments I made this past week.

I did not intend to hurt or offend anyone with my choice of words, but clearly I have – and for that I am deeply sorry. Words are important. I understand that, and will choose mine with great care going forward. What I said and did this week, as I was trying to protect my family, was offensive and unacceptable. Behavior like this undermines hard-fought rights that I vigorously support. I understand "Up Late" will be taken off the schedule for tonight and next week.

I want to apologize to my loyal fans and to my colleagues at msnbc – both for my actions and for distracting from their good work. Again, please accept my apology.

MSNBC did not respond to BuzzFeed's request for comment.
