She’s Barkin mad!
Tony-winning actress Ellen Barkin rang in the new year in her typical brash style — uncorking a profanity-laced Twitter tirade against the NYPD and Mayor Bloomberg after watching the predawn arrests of suspected Occupy Wall Street scofflaws near her West Village townhouse.
“F–k all of u, Bloomberg & every1 goosestepping behind u,” she tweeted at one point, insisting that she herself had been “threatened” and “shoved” by an officer — a claim that a video shot by her own boyfriend appears to belie.
“I cannot believe what I am seeing. U protect nothing,” she rants in a post directed at the mayor — a man she had rubbed elbows with at many a charity dinner, back when she was the fourth wife of Revlon Chairman Ron Perelman.“U ARE the violence in my city,” she seethed.
The still-sultry 57-year-old star — who reportedly made $40 million in her 2006 split with Perelman — had spent New Year’s Eve at Joe’s Pub in the East Village, watching a performance by her pal, comedian Sandra Bernhard.
“Walking home . . . 13th and 6th,” she told her followers at around 4 a.m. “Police making random arrests of non protesters. Young girl in police van screaming ‘I’m just trying 2 get home.’ ”
“Just threatened on my street by NYPD, cop shoved me, both hands, onto sidewalk.”
Video shot by her hunky boyfriend — 20-something actor-screenwriter Sam Levinson, son of director Barry Levinson — tells a different story.
Indeed the video shows no such action by the officer. Maybe all that Botox has seeped into her brain.
