The 18-year-old has spoken out after claims the former '30 Rock' actor made a homophobic slur against a photographer, which resulted in his talk night American show 'Up Late' being pulled off air for two weeks.
Ireland took to Twitter to support her father and wrote: "It takes a lot of strength for someone to release their anger.
"It takes a lot of strength and SUPPORT for someone to grow and become a better person.
"We all say things we don't mean. We all say things we can't take back."
She added: "For someone who has battled with anger management issues, my dad has grown tremendously. My dad is not a homophobe or a racist."
In a statement, the 55-year-old star apologized for his choice of words, after reportedly calling the paparazzi photographer a "f**" hours after winning a court case against his stalker.
Ireland said although she doesn't support what her father said she respects the fact he was trying to protect his family.
She added: "My point being, what my dad said was WRONG. What my dad felt WASN'T."
In 2007, a voice mail from Alec to his daughter, in which he called her a "rude, thoughtless, little pig", was released to the public and she has since forgiven him for the comment.
