Ireland Baldwin took to Twitter Saturday night to defend her dad following his latest meltdown and the subsequent media outcry.

Baldwin's MSNBC show was suspended on Friday after he allegedly yelled a homophobic slur at a paparazzo last week.

17-year-old Ireland posted a series of Tweets that rather eloquently defended her dad. Here's what she had to say:

"For someone who has battled with anger management issues, my dad has grown tremendously. My dad is far from a homophobe or a racist. From what you've read and from what media has been shoved down your throats, he has a kind heart. Having paparazzi following my mom and I has not been thrilling. Paparazzi can bring out many confined feelings of anger and spite out of anyone," she wrote.



"My point being, what my dad said was WRONG. What my dad felt WASN'T. Boundaries have to made. Paparazzi have jobs to do, but some of them jeopardize people's lives and cross a line. My dad has an INFANT CHILD to protect. All the parents out there should understand. You would do anything to protect your baby," she continued.

She added, "Now, let's all quit acting like children. Let my dad be and let him have his room to learn and enjoy his family."

And lastly, someone very wise once said, 'Be peaceful and love everyone.'"

It seems as though Alec could learn a thing or two about diplomacy from his daughter.
