Actor Alec Baldwin is in hot water again for an anti-gay tweet aimed at a former aide to Mitt Romney, which he has since deleted.

A discussion on Twitter began with a shot at the documentary "Above All Else," about the Keystone XL Pipeline. Baldwin and former Romney aide Garrett Jackson took back-and-forth digs at each other, which led to Baldwin's saying to Jackson: "You're on your knees in that photo. What's up with that, Garrett?"

The photo in question is Jackson's profile picture, in which he is kneeling next to Romney, who is sitting in a chair.

"Come on! Being a homophob [sic] has gotten you in enough trouble," Jackson replied.



To which, Baldwin shot back again: "While you're on your knees, you can polish my Emmys."



Baldwin deleted the tweets, but the "retweets" still remain on Jackson's Twitter account.

This comes after Baldwin lost his show on MSNBC in November for shouting an obscene homophobic slur to reporters. His show "Up Late" had been on the air for only a few months before it was pulled.

Since then, he has made an effort to reach out to the gay community, and is even scheduled to lead a discussion on April 27 at the Tribeca Film Festival about a documentary on the life and journey of the openly gay former Rep. Barney Frank of Massachusetts, titled "Compared to What: The Improbable Journey of Barney Frank," BuzzFeed is reporting.
