Alec Baldwin has the temper of a raging Irishman after a few rounds of drinks when his favourite rugby team loses a championship game (how’s my stereotyping?) – we all know it and we love him for it in spite of this. Sure, he might call his kid a pig every now and then or get kicked off a flight for telling off a flight attendant (and playing Words with Friends), but at the end of the day, he’s just a bleeding heart liberal with an uncanny ability to look good in a suit and make pretty much everyone laugh.
I never really believed the accusations put forth by the New York Post that Baldwin used racial slurs against one of their reporters, calling him a “coon”, “crackhead” and “drug dealer”. Uh, no. Luckily, there was a recording of the conversation in question which cleared his okay-ish name.
New info on the audio tape of the confrontation between Baldwin and the Post photog. Sources tell us … there is NO mention of a racial slur on the tape. And, we’re told, the initial story — that Baldwin allegedly said “I want to choke you to death” — is incorrect. We’re told in fact Baldwin said, “I want you to choke to death,” which is exactly what Baldwin claimed he said.
Good to know. Though I love that anyone ever listens to the New York Post on anything. They’re one step above those supermarket tabloids with “exclusives” on the birth of Bat Boy.
