And opinion as to whether Baldwin should have left the message, in which he verbally chastises daughter Ireland and calls Basinger "a thoughtless pain in the a*s," is divided--even on his own Internet site.
One user, Wendy, writes: "Never call your daughter a pig or brainless. She will carry this in her heart forever.
"Words are like toothpaste--once they come out there's no putting them back where they came from."
Another fan, Kayla, adds: "Grow up and think of that child. Be a man for once. There is no way on earth you can justify calling your child a pig. None."
However, among the messages in support of Baldwin is one from Kelly: "Alec, I am sorry that the public feels they have a right to judge your situation. Stay strong, love your children, take the high road and don't look down. You are a father and a man first."
