Alec Baldwin Vs. The New York Post

Alec is having issues controlling his rage against the paparazzi again.

It happened again. Alec Baldwin engaged a reporter yesterday in New York City and it apparently escalated far enough for cops to be called and racial slurs to be thrown.

2. Here’s Alec’s side of the story, per his Twitter account:

My publicist has just informed me that the "photographer" from the Post is claiming I called him a racial epithet, prior to calling the cops

That's kind of magical thinking, isn't it? The Post accusing me of racism?

10. Hilaria’s side:

Shame on anyone who says my husband is racist. If you could only see/hear the dangerous things paparazzi will do & the lies to get a "story"

You know what harassment is? "Reporters" and paparazzi outside of your home at 5am. I can't even walk my dogs. How is this legal?

12. And The Post’s side:

The Post suggest that a reporter named Tara Palmeri approached Baldwin somewhere outside of his East Village home for comment about a lawsuit against his wife. Then it got crazy:

The “30 Rock” star grabbed the reporter, Tara Palmeri, by her arm and told her, “I want you to choke to death,” Palmeri told police, for whom she played an audiotape of the conversation.

He then called G.N. Miller — a decorated retired detective with the NYPD’s Organized Crime Control Bureau and a staff photographer for The Post — a “coon, a drug dealer,” Miller’s police statement said.

Then, cops were called and Alec asked Miller to provide proof that he’s retired NYPD:

Baldwin called the ID a “fake” and added Miller was a “crackhead” and a “drug dealer” who “just got out of jail,” Miller said.

Baldwin also made “disparaging remarks” about Miller’s mother, the photographer said.

As oblivious pedestrians walked by, Baldwin told him to “suck my d—k,” Miller said.

Baldwin also walked up to random people — including a dad pushing his child in a stroller — and told them Miller was an ex-con and drug dealer, Miller said.

14. At least all appears to be well in the Baldwin household this morning…
