Alec Baldwin isn't going down without a fight after a New York Post reporter claimed that the 30 Rock actor verbally assaulted her and called the photographer racial slurs.
Reports surfaced Tuesday stating that the actor verbally abused Post reporter Tara Palmeri, who was trying to get a quote from Baldwin regarding his wife’s lawsuit. Palmeri claimed she recorded Baldwin threatening to choke her and calling photog G.N. Miller a “drug dealer,” “coon” and a “crackhead.”
According to UPI, the recording does not support claims that Baldwin called Miller any of those names. In fact, a source tells TMZ that there were absolutely no racial epithets uttered. The tape also proves that Baldwin didn’t say, “I want to choke you to death,” but instead, “I want you choke to death,” which the actor already admitted to saying.
Baldwin has since taken to Twitter to tweet stories which reveal his innocence.
He has also taken to Twitter to inform his followers, “I sat down w a writer from Gothamist to discuss a variety pack of tabloid stories I want to address. http://gothamist.com.”
Baldwin is prepared to clear his name in this matter, along with his handful of other run-ins with paparazzi, including two allegations of battery from June 2012.
