Alec Baldwin and MSNBC announced Tuesday they were ending his Friday night show after the actor had been suspended for two weeks for using an anti-gay slur.

The former “30 Rock” star appeared at the Manhattan trial of 41-year-old Genevieve Sabourin. As he was leaving court, Baldwin was surrounded by photographers before getting into a waiting car.
