Alec Baldwin was involved in another confrontation with the media after he allegedly threatened to choke a reporter to death and hurled a racial slur at a photographer. Both Baldwin and the reporter for the New York Post, Tara Palmeri, filed harassment claims against one another following the run-in.
According to the Post, Palmeri approached Baldwin while he was walking his dogs to ask him about a recent lawsuit against his wife Hilaria. The reporter says Baldwin responded by grabbing her by the arm and saying, “I want to choke you to death.” The Post says Palmeri played an audio recording of the threat to police.
Baldwin then turned the Post’s photographer who they say is black and a retired detective with the NYPD’s Organized Crime Control Bureau and allegedly called him “a coon,” “crackhead” and “drug dealer.”
Honestly if any, and I mean ANY of this true then man why the hell do we like this guy? I mean sure he’s a funny dude on television but it just appears that Baldwin is like the worst person in the world. He’s blatantly dissed his daughter (which we’ve heard on tape). Now he appears to be racist. And the whole “choking to death” thing comes right out of a Mike Tyson type of a novel.
But I will say this. None of this and I mean none of this is going to do a thing. Somehow the Michael Richards tirade on stage put his career into oblivion and yet Baldwin has had this kind of stuff going on for years and his career seems to be right as rain. Should both guys be in the gutter? I’m just saying……
