Despite reports of racial slurs, none were heard upon examination of the audio of the alleged heated discussion between Alec Baldwin and the New York Post staffers.
We previously reported that Alec Baldwin’s wife, Hilaria Thomas, is being sued by one of her yoga students, Spencer Wolff, for “severe” injuries he received after falling and shattering a window due to an overcrowded studio.
When questioned by The New York Post about his wife’s lawsuit, we reported that Baldwin allegedly hurled insults and racial epithets including “crack head” and “drug dealer” at the reporter and photographer on the scene.
Both parties filed harassment claims against each other.
Baldwin claimed his innocence, blaming The Post, whose function he claimed is to “denigrate,” “humiliate,” and “reduce” people.
According to TMZ, reviewing the audio tape of the confrontation has revealed no racial slurs. Furthermore, Baldwin had allegedly threatened the female reporter, Tara Palmeri, saying, “I want to choke you to death.” However, his version of the story was found to be accurate: “I want you to choke to death.”
