Last year, when TMZ.com began circulating an angry voicemail that Alec Baldwin left for his 11-year-old daughter Ireland, referring to her as a “rude little pig,” everyone around me was shocked, appalled, and horrified at how angry and vicious his remarks were.
I, of course, simply thought: “Hunh. That sounds like Level One ‘mad’ in the land of Hardass Asian Parenting. I do believe that my parents must have, at some point in my childhood, gotten to Level Five and said things in Vietnamese striking me to hell in a handbasket, expletive, expletive, expletive, ‘we wish you had never been born and you are a curse of dishonor unto our family,’ expletive expletive. Anyway, what’s so terrible about being called a little pig? Sure, it’s not the most flattering description, but it’s certainly not going to leave a scar.”
ANYhoozle… today, Intern Jasmine tipped me off to the news that sixteen tiny little pygmy hogs, the result of a captive breeding project from four rescues, are finally being released into the their natural habitat at the foot of the Himlayas.
TAKE ONE LOOK AT THAT ADORABLE LITTLE PIG! And now you decide: If Baldwin had been trying to insult his daughter, why would he have compared her to something soooooo adorable?
You feel bad for judging El Baldwin now, don’t you?? Mmm hmm, that’ll show you.
