Calm, Cool Alec Baldwin to Reporter: ‘I want you to choke to death'; Calls Black Photographer a ‘Coon’

Posted by on Feb 18, 2013 at 8:12 am

Nice to see this lunatic has settled down now that he’s married again. Oh, wait.

Actor Alec Baldwin allegedly calls 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.

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.

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.

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.

Minutes later, Baldwin ranted on Twitter.

“Thank u 2 NYPD officers who came to my home 2day so that I could file a formal complaint against NY Post “photographer’’ who assaulted me,’’ he tweeted.

Why are these liberal Democrats so racist?

Last June, the day before his wedding, Baldwin shouted to a black photographer on the street, “You gotta back up there Rodney.”

The photographer’s name wasn’t Rodney.

    Historically speaking, this isn’t surprising at all. Leftsists in general, and Democrats in particular, are virulent racists.

    “Rodney” may not be racist all by itself (although I think it is), but in conjunction with “Coon,” it’s pretty racist.

    In any event it’s more offensive than “Macaca.” I still don’t get that one.

    And what an asshole this guy Baldwin is. I’m sick of him getting a pass because he’s a charming actor. His Twitter feed alone proves he’s a complete douchebag.

    On “Duchess,” the Stranglers sang “And the Rodneys are queuing up/God forbid.” And here’s Alec Baldwin wanting to choke someone!

    You are worthless Alec Baldwin.

    ‘Rodney’ is racist?

    It’s a code word dontcha know. EVERYTHING is a code word, when leftists play the race card. And now the joker is being force fed the deck. Good.

    I didn’t know he had it in him. Finally I have some respect for Mr. Baldwin. The press get real uppity. I wouldn’t want some stranger asking about my wife being sued either. And being able to flash a badge shouldn’t entitle some ex-cop to get out of jail free. As for “rodney” I don’t see anything racist about that. I’m glad Mr. Baldwin stood up for himself.

    I want solid proof he said all this. Not because I don’t believe it but because then I can safely tell my wife who is a fan of his. He’s got comedic talent but he’s not worth it. Funny how people like him and Ellen Barkin find a loving home on NBC.

    Baldwin is the greatest thespian ever and Comrade Dear Leader is the greatest and coolest Marxist rock star ever. We are mere worms compared to these greats but at least we are alive to see the greatest actor and president eva comrades!

    Allegedly?

    The whole conversation was taped. There’s nothing “alleged” about it. He called the guy a Coon.
