Oh, Alec Baldwin. You are such a douchebag. Forgive us if we don’t quite believe your denials of using foul and hateful language to vent anger at a paparazzo.
It’s just that we still clearly recall that time you called your own daughter “a thoughtless little pig“ when she was just 11 years old…
Or that occasion when you said he wanted to gut TMZ’s Harvey Levin with a knife….
Or pretty much anything that ever came out of your mouth that was scripted by someone else ahead of time.
So surprising to pretty much no one ever, Alec Baldin has once again been accused of losing his temper and being a complete asshole. And yet again, it’s at a paparazzo.
New York Post reporter Tara Palmeri tried to question Baldwin as he was walking his dog on a New York City street, specifically asking about the recent lawsuit filed against Alec’s new wife, Hilaria Thomas. Alec being incensed and allegedly grabbed Palmeri by the arm and told her “I want to choke you to death.”
Baldwin then allegedly turned to Post photographer G. N. Miller – who is black – and called him a “coon,” “crackhead” and “drug dealer.”
Oh, Alec, you have quite the way with words.
Miller – who is a retired detective with the NYPD’s Organized Drug Control Bureau – filed an harassment complaint against Baldwin, who also put in his own against Miller.
However, Baldwin claims he never used racial slurs against Miller – and he never would. His defense? He donates to things started by black people!
Seriously, I’m not making this up.
Baldwin twatted out the absurd statement himself, writing, “I find it ironic that my foundation’s last grant was $50,000 to the Arthur Ashe Learning Center.”
Oh my God! He loves all black people. Some of his best friends are black!
A source tells TMZ Baldwin’s rage at the Post reporter and photographer wasn’t entirely random.
As for what caused the explosion of tempers … sources very close to Baldwin tell TMZ … it all emanated from a story in the Post a few days back, reporting that Alec’s wife was being sued by a student in her yoga class, claiming he was instructed to perform a dangerous move in an overcrowded class and was injured as a result.
Alec’s sources say the actor was infuriated because the Post story did not give her side, even though they claim they had multiple conversations with the reporter, saying the class was not overcrowded and the injured man got special attention because he was being careless and even admitted the accident was his fault.
Yeah, Alec may have a reason to be pissed if that were the case, but no matter what, there’s nothing that would excuse that type of response.
