It’s not the first time Alec Baldwin has used a homophobic slur in anger. And certainly not the first time he’s allowed his anger to dictate poor behavior.
The 30 Rock actor, who hit headlines this week after facing his stalker in court, became aggressive towards the female reporter in the street outside his home, accusing her of almost hitting his wife.
‘F*** you,’ he yelled at the woman as she insisted she had done nothing wrong. He yelled at police officers that he wanted to press charges against her for attacking his wife, Hilaria. When he eventually drove off in anger, he hit another car with his, TMZ reported.
It was the third scrap of the day for Baldwin who had told a Fox 5 reporter earlier in the day: ‘You are as dumb as you look.’
Moments later, Baldwin then shoved a photographer and hit a camera out of his hand.
‘Hey, you just assaulted me,’ the man told the actor, who laughed and said: ‘I assaulted you…
TMZ claimed Baldwin called a photographer a ‘c***sucking f**’ as he was leaving his New York City apartment on Thursday…
The actor later claimed he never used the word ‘f**’ and had in fact said ‘fat head’. He also pleaded ignorance when he was publicly taken to task for using the term ‘c***sucker’, saying he did not know it was a homophobic slur.
As for Cooper:
The journalist wrote on his twitter account: ‘Wow, Alec Baldwin shows his true colors yet again. How is he going to lie and excuse his anti-gay slurs this time?’
He later added: ‘Just read Alec Baldwin’s latest excuses. They are actually so ridiculous they are funny.’
And he later retweeted a story from The Dish entitled: ‘Yes, Alec Baldwin Is A Homophobic Bigot.’
