Alec Baldwin ventured out in New York City on Monday night, and not only is he facing allegations that he used a racial slur towards a photographer, but the reporter working with the lensman claims Baldwin launched a verbal assault on her too!
Baldwin reportedly had a confrontation with Tara Palmeri and G. N. Miller on Sunday morning, and the journalists claim that the 30 Rock actor grabbed Palmeri's arm and told her, "I want to choke you to death," and then hurled a few insults at Miller.
"This is completely false," Baldwin's spokesman said in a statement. "The claim of racist remarks is one of the most outrageous things I’ve heard in my life," Baldwin added.
Baldwin told Gothamist that he felt the photographer deliberately "banged into me with his shoulder," and again clarified, "I don't think I've ever uttered a racial epithet to someone in my lifetime."
The journalists were apparently inquiring about a lawsuit filed against Baldwin's pregnant wife, yoga instructor Hilaria Thomas Baldwin, and The NY Post published a photo of Baldwin holding Palmeri's arm as she holds a small tape recorder.
Police confirmed that Baldwin and Miller filed complaints against each other after the incident, and it's also being reported that Palmeri played an audio recording of the conversation for the police. Can't wait for that to hit the web ... maybe Alec will give Mel Gibson a run for his money?
Why so angry, Alec?
