Now this is the Alec Baldwin we’ve come to know and, well, not love. The actor’s not happy about a piece in the Daily Mail suggesting that his wife was busy tweeting during the funeral of James Gandolfini. Maybe it was just some “Sopranos” nostalgia that inspired Baldwin’s threat about a funeral?

That’s quite a threat, but Baldwin is a pro in that department. How soon until the reports that “queen” is actually a compliment?

But wait, there’s more!

Update:

Whatever we’re calling this “scandal,” it appears to go deeper. Tweeter @CatsPolitics suggests that the Los Angeles-based reporter misread Twitter’s timestamps for the New York funeral.

The Daily Mail is standing by its story, sort of. George Stark’s name disappeared from the byline temporarily, replaced by “Daily Mail Reporter.” Was the paper covering for a screw-up, or just trying to keep Stark safe until he could reach a safe house?
