Alex Baldwin Allegedly Manhandled New York Post Reporter, Tara Palmeri

Alec Baldwin’s Alleged Racist Rant At Black Photographer, Actor Denies Accusations On Twitter

Actor Alec Baldwin is in the headlines again. He is accused of racially abusing a New York Post staff photographer, who is also a decorated, retired police officer.

Both parties in the alleged incident have taken opposing positions, with the photographer claiming he was called “racist” epithets and Baldwin countering that he was “assaulted.”

After being called to the scene to intervene, police have confirmed that the alleged episode took place at around 10:50 am on Sunday near a Greenwich Village yoga studio owned by Baldwin’s wife, Hilaria Thomas.

Baldwin was first approached by New York Post reporter, Tara Palmeri, while he walked his two small dogs outside his East 10th Street apartment. The actor was asked for a comment about a lawsuit recently filed against his wife related to her work as a yoga instructor.

The Daily News reports that the 30 rock star replied, “I have nothing to say to the Daily News,” mistaking Palmeri for News staff.

It’s alleged that Baldwin then grabbed Palmeri by her arm and told her, “I want you to choke to death.” Palmeri, reportedly, has since played an audiotape of that conversation to police.

It was at this point, reportedly, that Post photographer, G. N. Miller, who is black and was working on the Thomas follow-up story with Palmeri, stepped in to help his colleague.

Baldwin allegedly called Miller “a c**n,” a “crackhead,” and a “drug dealer” during the confrontation.

During the heated exchange, Miller — who previously worked for 15 years in the New York Police Department’s (NYPD) Organized Crime Control Bureau — says he showed the actor his ID to prove he was a retired police officer after Baldwin became “too aggressive.”
