Alec Baldwin had another perfectly charming encounter with a writer and photographer from The New York Post, where the debonair actor slew a hilarious racial slur and told a woman he wished she would choke to death. Oh, Alec, you’re the epitome of class! From the NY Post:
Baldwin had first been approached by a Post reporter while walking his dogs outside his East 10th Street pad at around 10:50 a.m. He was asked for comment on a lawsuit against his wife, Hilaria, involving her work as a yoga instructor.
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…
Cops were called, and Miller, 56, and Baldwin, 54, both filed harassment claims against each other.
Minutes later, Baldwin ranted on Twitter.
“Thank u 2 NYPD officers who came to my home 2day so that I could file a formal complaint against NY Post “photographer’’ who assaulted me,’’ he tweeted.
In another post, Baldwin referred to Miller, for unknown reasons, as “Ralston,” writing, “Moments after I tweet about the Post, Ralston, the ex-crackhead ‘photographer’ shows up at my door w 1 of Murdoch’s nieces in tow.”
He added, “Ralston claims he’s ex NYPD!! That can’t be!!! Ex NYPD don’t become crackhead, ex jailhouse paparazzi!”
The actor eventually removed most of the posts.
Miller also said the actor bumped him in the chest during their tete-a-tete, although Baldwin told cops the photographer “pushed into him,’’ according to the actor’s complaint…
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.
See? Alec is just as charismatic in person as he is in those NPR pledge drive commercials. In any other situation talkin’ ‘bout a man’s mama to a drug-addled ex-con would get you stabbed in the eye, but not Alec. That crackhead was probably so smitten by Alec’s bedroom eyes and bloated face he probably just stood there and took pictures with his fancy drug-dealer camera.
