Alec Baldwin's new TV talk show has been suspended, according to MSNBC.

The cable channel said it had halted the show, Up Late With Alec Baldwin, for two episodes.

MSNBC did not specify why it suspended the programme but it comes after an encounter Baldwin had with a photographer in New York in which the actor was heard on videotape using an anti-gay insult.

Baldwin later posted a statement on MSNBC's website saying he was "deeply sorry" for language he used, but did not offer details.

He later tweeted an apology, saying he was unaware the term used was offensive to gays.

The show, which airs on Fridays, will be off this week and next under the suspension, MSNBC said.
