Alec Baldwin disputes claims he used racial epithets
Another day, another face-off between Alec Baldwin and the New York Post, it seems. Reports Ben Yakas of The Gothamist, the "30 Rock" star got into another altercation with the tabloid on Sunday. Baldwin told the New York City blog that a New York Post photographer assaulted him near his East Village apartment, and that he called the cops to file a formal complaint against him. But photographer G.N. Miller, who is black, went on counterattack, accusing Baldwin of calling him a "crackhead," a "drug dealer," and "a coon."
Baldwin told Yakas, "If you want to paint a picture of me that is a denigrating picture, I've seen that. If you want to put words in my mouth...I've certainly had my moments. But this is not one of them. I don't think I've ever uttered a racial epithet to someone in my lifetime."
