Actor and Amagansett resident Alec Baldwin made a homophobic remark on Twitter in June, calling a Daily Mail reporter a "toxic little queen." Now activists are calling on Capital One to drop Baldwin as a credit card spokesman. Some locals are saying they can't and won't judge Baldwin, given his generosity to East End charities (such as Guild Hall, above), while others, such as local author Steven Gaines, say of Capital One, "How can they remain mum? Why can they forgive him from calling a man a 'queen?'"
