I suppose he should be crucified because he caused emotional distress to his kid.

Yeah, I heard the audio.  Not cool.  Told his daughter she was a poor excuse for a human being, and called her a pig.  Not cool.

Maybe his daughter really is that though. Or is she automatically incapable of wrong because she's a kid?

I wouldn't want to pick side on this.
Is it ever right to call someone a pig or worse?

From someone who was severly emotionally & mentally abused as a child by their mother, this sort of behavior is unacceptable. There is no excuse for the things he called her or the way he spoke to her. And trust me, if it happened once, I'm sure it will happen again. Its completely abusive.

The thing with emotional abuse is that it leaves no visable marks  or scares. Everything is internal. Emotional abuse is much harder to detect and can rake havoc on a persons self esteem just as much as physical/sexual abuse can.

His excuse as to why it happen is complete and utter bullshit. Its an excuse and regardless of the situation, no one, especially his child, deserves to be talked to that way.

Ireland, his daughter, has just been betrayed by one of the people in her life who is supposed to love and care for her unconditionally. Its a huge slap in the face and a blow to a childs self esteem to hear these sort of things come out of their parents mouth.

Actually I do think it's possible for an 11 year old to be a "rude, thoughtless little pig".  I do not think that yelling at the kid over the phone even remotely resembles a positive way in dealing with such a child.  Even if his daughter was a raging prepubescent psychopath that kind of approach accomplishes nothing at all.

HA! You just said it was okay for him to be verbally abusive. That's really sad.

As for Kim, if she did leak it out to the media, that's not cool and is just as bad as what Alec did. The child is the one suffering the most from this. Not the parents.

The guy's probably just at the end of his emotional tether. Its wrong of him to take it out on his child, but most parents will at some stage, and comparatively, his language was quite mild.

Erin isn't a country.

Unless you're living in some backwards shithole island that can't just accept their English masters and abandon the dying remnants of their crappy little toy language.

You're right Auryn, Those same Dumb Fucks can't spell Eireann properly :)  But it's a bit rich coming from someone who willingly surrendered their country to a foreign and unelected head of state not too long ago.

Pfft.  My father said worse, and I turned out ok.  Prepubescent kids are rude and thoughtless and sometimes they can be little pigs too!  Looks to me like he was at the end of his patience and she pushed him over the line as kids know how to do so well.  The real crime here is that it's been leaked, and that someone deemed it news!

I dunno.  Maybe someone who has had pre-teen and teen children can enlighten me on the proper way to do what he did?

He stoops and he cowers, they call a policeman, they came and they siezed him, and laughed at his hair.

From what I can tell this was deliberately put in the press and hyped. If you read the article you can see that Baldwin & Basinger are in a legal battle about  the children's custody. Sounds to me that this little tirade was just what Basinger's lawyer needed to throw some extra mud and make Baldwin look like an unfit parent, not able to raise his kids properly and with respect.

Using your kids for the sole purpose of destroying your ex spouse is the real abuse here.
