NY Post photographer accuses Alec Baldwin of using racial epithet?

Baldwin denied the allegation:

Earlier today, he said he had filed a formal complaint against the photographer:

It isn’t the first time Baldwin has been involved in an altercation with a photographer.

We’re not yet sure why the current dispute arose — perhaps it has something to do with this? — but we’ll keep you up to date on any developments.

Update: The New York Post published the article today.

More from The New York Post:

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.

Wow. For shame, Baldwin.

Update: The cover.

Twitchy will continue to monitor this story and update with further developments.

Update: Unreal.

    I just hope he didn’t call the photographer the same vile things he calls his daughter.

      “You are a rude, thoughtless little pig. You don’t have the brains or the decency as a human”

      Alex said to his daughter…and Phil.

        ” I don’t give a damn that you’re 12 years old or 11 years old, or a child, or that your mother is a thoughtless pain in the ass ”

      That’s exactly what I tweeted him…He’s a boil on the ass of ‘progress’

  • GaryTheBrave

    Warning to all photographers: it is dangerous to be near Alec Baldwin or Sean Penn.

  • FreedomFighter

    Hey Alec, Youre living in liberal la la land. You built it, you live in it.

    • Sean Connolly

      “He didn’t build that” 😉

    Poor Alec…having to suffer the indignity of the NYPD having to come into his home so he could file his report.

  • Aeronerauk

    So what? Just because liberal caterwaul about this sort of thing doesn’t mean everyone should. Race is a distraction and weapon utilized by the left.

  • charrenee

    So he wants us to believe he treats reporters better then he treats his own daughter?

    • Sylvia

      Pretty much…

  • Maxx

    Cops make good witnesses you idiot, when they’re actually at the scene to “witness” something. Read your own tweet. “Why did the photographer make no mention of this WHEN THE COPS SHOWED UP? Cops make rather good witnesses.”

    Where is my Worf face palm gif….oh yeah, right here. I always keep it handy when Alec Baldwin arrives.

  • Gallatin

    What amazes me is that any photographer wants to follow the putz around.

    • Garth Haycock

      I can understand why the photographer would do that. Baldwin has a short and violent temper and will eventually do something stupid enough to get a story that will sell papers. The good news is that each incident exposes who Baldwin really is; the bad news is that the mainstream media will ignore it because he’s a progressive.

      • Gallatin

        What I find even more ridiculous is all the “beautiful” people who say that they just want to be left alone, respect our privacy please, blah blah blah. For one day I wish all the media would leave them alone, completely ignore them. Their heads would explode. They would be crying because no one was their to document their every stupid move.

    Good point Maxx…why would the cops show up at the scene and not take a report? Why would they have to come to his house to do it? Did he throw a tantrum later with some official to get them to show up?

    • Dr. Dorothy Holtslander

      good point. I am so fed up with the Hollywood Liberal double standard… The only time they speak with any intelligence is when they are speaking words …written by someone else!!!

  • Silenttype78

    Think I read that the reporter has a recording of the altercation…..

    Guess the libs will continue to scream racist-racism at everyone except those who are guilty.

  • RightThinking1

    I actually derive a good deal satisfaction from incidents where celebs clash with the press. It’s somewhat like gang members clashing over drug sales.

      It’s like Nazi Germany vs. the U.S.S.R.

  • Dr. Dorothy Holtslander

    Having Money and minimal talent does not make you intelligent..Mr. Baldwin….merely means that those even less intelligent than you will bow to a bully. You, Sir are a lout and your boorish elitist behavior shows very low class.
    Then again anyone who would speak to their child as you did…well who would expect any better in public.

  • $23629333

    Raise your hand if you despise this guy.

    Raise your hand if you despise this guy even more than I do. Sorry, put your hand down, it’s not possible.

    That said, I must say that I’ve been waiting a long time to see this Teflon dipstick talk his way into oblivion. How this guy – at this time in history – who is so quick to resort to sexist, racist and homophobic slurs,* has survived (professionally) this long is beyond me.

    (* I told you that bigots do not tend to discriminate)

  • EastValleyConservative

    Why does Alec find it “ironic” that his last foundation grant was to Arthur Ashe? It doesn’t matter much what comes out of his mouth, he is a pompous a, that is a fact.

  • TocksNedlog

    He’s 54, but he acts like he’s 14.
    Never grow up, Alec! If you do, you’ll lose your special charm.

  • BrotherMatthias

    Alec has finally stepped in it. Big time.

    As of this post – no recording from the Post to confirm the allegations. Since the NY Post is making the accusations, I have to question their credibility.

    • Sylvia

      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

        If she played a copy for the police, she should be able to release it to skeptical New Yorkers like myself (unless the NYPD specifically held the recording as evidence). How do I know that she’s telling the truth? I have no way at this time of knowing. Now, if it turns out that Alec Baldwin did say what Palmeiri and Miller claim he said, I’ll condemn him them…but at this time, I don’t have enough indisputable in the bank to see a condemnation as warranted.
