Anderson Cooper and Keith Olbermann have weighed in on Alec Baldwin's suspension.

MSNBC on Friday announced that Alec Baldwin's late night show, Up Late with Alec Baldwin, would be suspended for two weeks over Baldwin's use of a gay slur.

(Related: Alec Baldwin's MSNBC show suspended for 2 episodes over gay slur.) posted a video of Baldwin in an altercation with a photographer outside his apartment. The website claims that he called the photographer a “cocksucking fag” before getting into his car.

Baldwin denied the claim, saying he said “cocksucking fathead”, and in a series of tweets denounced the use of gay slurs.

Baldwin said that he had been “informed” that “c'sucker is an anti-gay epithet. In which case I apologize and will retire it from my vocabulary.”

“Just read Alec Baldwin's latest excuses,” Cooper tweeted to his nearly 4.5 million followers. “They are actually so ridiculous they are funny.”

He later added that Baldwin “can say whatever he wants, but then why repeatedly lie about it afterwards?”

Olbermann, who had a falling-out with MSNBC, took aim at the network's president, Phil Griffin.

“The deft hand of Phil Griffin strikes again,” he tweeted. “Next on MSNBC: Lockup: Alec Baldwin.”
