Alec Baldwin apparently ventured outside his home this week, because he’s in the news once again for being a total jerk. This time he allegedly hurled racial slurs at a photographer, and told a reporter he wanted her to ‘choke to death’ after she merely asked a question. The man called his own daughter a thoughtless little pig, so this latest outburst should come as no surprise.
Actor Alec Baldwin allegedly called a black Post photographer a racial epithet, a “crackhead” and a “drug dealer” during a confrontation on an East Village street yesterday morning, prompting police to intervene.
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.
“Now listen, I mean, we have had bad troubles on the streets of New York, and we have had bad reporters and everything else, and I can see somebody losing their temper and saying, ‘Knock it off, guys.’ I could see that. But because ‑‑ and most people, I don’t know if they can relate to it, but reporters are jerks, and I can’t imagine being, you know, a celebrity where you have the paparazzi all the time. It’s got to be tough. So I’ve got to give them the benefit of the doubt. But this guy has anger issues. Serious anger issues. And he’s a dangerous guy,” Glenn said.
Glenn offered to have Alec Baldwin on the show for an hour, because he clearly has a lot of anger issues and Glenn suspected that alcoholism is somewhere in his past, present, and future. As someone who has had a troubled past, Glenn said he could relate to some of his issues and possibly help him.
“I mean, pray for Alec Baldwin because he’s a sick dude, man. He’s a sick dude,” he added.
