Homophobic slurs, threats of violence against women and ANOTHER assault: Alec Baldwin gets free pass from ABC and NBC after latest arrest, unlike Roseanne Barr and Megyn Kelly

Alec Baldwin has found himself in trouble with the law after he allegedly hit a man in the jaw on Friday during a curbside brawl - but not his employer.

ABC will air The Alec Baldwin Show on Sunday night as planned and declined to even offer up comment on Baldwin's latest arrest, for which he was booked on charges of assault and harassment.

It is a far cry from the network's decision back in May to fire Roseanne Barr for posting a racist tweet about Valerie Jarrett just hours after the offense, thereby dismantling an entire cast and crew of workers.

Over at NBC there was also no comment from Saturday Night Live, who treated the incident as a throwaway punchline at the end of the cold open.

Eight days prior, on the same network, Megyn Kelly was ousted from her spot on Today following her defense of blackface.
