CLEVELAND - The recent firestorm surrounding Paula Deen's use of racial slurs has left her in tears on the "Today" show and without a number of high profile endorsement deals.
Deen, however, is far from the only person in the limelight that has made insensitive comments in just the past week alone.
Alec Baldwin lambasted a reporter via Twitter using a gay slur and explicit language. George Stark of the "Daily Mail" wrote a story about Baldwin's wife tweeting during James Gandolfini's funeral Thursday, which Baldwin said was completely false.
Among other threats, Baldwin called the British reporter a "toxic little queen."
