If you see Alec Baldwin in public, it’s probably a good idea to advise your party to slowly back away while leaving any food you have with you on the ground. No sudden movements. That’s a lesson that NY Post reporters and photographers just can’t seem to learn for whatever reason.
Baldwin allegedly grabbed a female reporter by the arm and wished death upon her before making racist comments to her photographer.
Baldwin was asked for comment on a lawsuit against his wife, Hilaria, involving her work as a yoga instructor.
(He) 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.’’
At one point, Miller showed Baldwin ID to prove he’s a retired NYPD cop, which Baldwin dismissed as “fake.”
Cops were called, and Miller, 56, and Baldwin, 54, both filed harassment claims against each other.
Of course, many are shocked by this nasty behavior. When asked for comment, former 30 Rock co-star Judah Friedlander said, “Holy shit. The show’s over. Who’s going to pay me to wear baseball hats now?”
