Hollywood actor, comedian and anti-Trump zealot Alec Baldwin endured his first official “Comedy Central Roast” last weekend, where everybody took a shot at him, including his own daughter.

But instead of following the other roasters’ leads and dinging him over his acting skills (or the lack thereof) and age or weight, Baldwin’s daughter Ireland, 23, mocked him for being a lousy father.

“Hi Dad, I’m Ireland,” her roast began. “It’s good to be here. I almost didn’t even know about it because I haven’t checked my voicemails from my dad from the last, like, 12 years or something?”

“I actually have a lot of common with the people on this roast, because, like them, I don’t really know you that well either. Well, a lot of people know my dad as that guy from the ‘Mission Impossible’ movies or that guy from ’30 Rock.’ I know him as that guy from, like half of my birthday parties?”

Listen:

The joke was based on what happened in 2007. During a custody battle at the time with his ex-wife, Kim Basinger, the actor left a voicemail for Ireland, then-11, in which he called her a “rude, thoughtless little pig.”

“An enraged Alec Baldwin unleashed a volcanic tirade of threats and insults on his 11-year-old daughter, Ireland, calling her a ‘thoughtless little pig,’ and bashing her mother Kim Basinger,” TMZ reported at the time.

The “volcanic tirade” reportedly occurred after Ireland, who – as a reminder – was 11, failed to answer a call from him one morning.

“Alec went berserk on her voice mail, saying ‘Once again, I have made an ass of myself trying to get to a phone,’ adding, ‘you have insulted me for the last time,'” TMZ reported.

“Switching his train of thought, Baldwin then exercised his incredible parenting skills and took a shot at his ex-wife, declaring, ‘I don’t give a damn that you’re 12-years-old or 11-years-old, or a child, or that your mother is a thoughtless pain in the ass who doesn’t care about what you do.’ The irate Baldwin went on to say, ‘You’ve made me feel like s**t’ and threatened to ‘straighten your ass out.'”

“This crap you pull on me with this goddamn phone situation that you would never dream of doing to your mother, and you do it to me constantly over and over again,” he reportedly continued yelling.

“You better be ready Friday the 20th to meet with me,” he added before hanging up.
