Instead of handling a delicate matter privately, Alec Baldwin was adamant about letting everybody in the world know why he recently called his daughter a "pig," in a poor attempt to justify himself and gain sympathy for his demeaning words.
Alec made a special guest appearance on Friday's episode of "The View" to set the record straight about why he said he would set his daughter's "a** straight."
The actor sat down with the ladies to tell his side of the story about the angry voicemail message he recently left the 11-year-old that caused an uproar in the country.
Of his nasty comments to the pre-teen, which included calling her a "rude, thoughtless little pig," Alec said he learned that he took out his frustrations on the wrong person and he realized how many people live with "shameful secrets and make it their career to humiliate you."
When Barbara Walters asked him if he has since spoken to his daughter, Alec mentioned that it isn't something he is allowed to discuss.
However, the actor did want to make it perfectly clear that all his friends and family "know what has been done to me" and that he's been a victim of "parental alienation."
The interview came to an end by Alec apologizing for "how everything played out."
