Ireland Baldwin Roasts Father Alec Baldwin [VIDEO]
Sunday night’s Comedy Central Roast of Alec Baldwin included many jabs about how Alec Baldwin has been a neglectful parent. The digs came straight from the source, Alec’s 23-year-old daughter, Ireland Baldwin. Ireland appeared at the “surprise guest” at the roast, and didn’t hold back. Ireland opened up her roast with a pretend introduction to her father. She continued by bringing light to one of Alec’s infamous controversies. Back in 2007, a voicemail that Alec left 11-year-old Ireland, was leaked to TMZ. The voicemail included harsh language, as he called his daughter “a rude, thoughtless little pig,” after she missed one of their few scheduled phone calls. This voicemail was leaked amid the custody battle between Alec and his ex-wife Kim Basinger.
Ireland didn’t hold back the jabs about the voicemail, “It’s good to be here. I almost didn’t even know about it because I haven’t checked my voice mails from my dad from the last 12 years or something?” she said. Although Baldwin’s daughter was the surprise guest at the end of the roast, she ended up winning the most laughs of the night.
After poking fun at a few more of her father’s mishaps, like the time he was kicked off an American Airlines flight back in 2011, she ended the roast with another subtle jab. “Seriously, Dad, I’m so proud of you. You’re a wonderful father and an amazing actor, and I’m thrilled to be here to see you celebrated tonight. After all the years of giving verbal abuse, it’s finally time you received some. So before I leave, I’d just like to say something you’ve never said to me: Goodnight.”
