Alec Baldwin won’t have new ‘nephew’ Justin Bieber on his TV show
Alec Baldwin, as usual, says all kinds of provocative things in a new wide-ranging interview with the Hollywood Reporter, including calling Rose McGowan a “tragic front person for the #MeToo movement” and declaring that “black people love me” since he began satirizing Donald Trump on “Saturday Night Live.”
