Alec Baldwin’s MSNBC show “Up Late” was canceled, the network said Tuesday, after the actor received criticism for using a gay slur, the New York Times confirmed.

“This is a mutual parting and we wish Alec all the best,” MSNBC said in a statement.

The New York Post first broke the news, which also reported that the cancellation was due in part to Baldwin’s behavior in general.

MSNBC initially suspended Baldwin on Nov. 15.
