Actor Alec Baldwin’s mouth always seems to be getting him into trouble. His latest incident: yelling racial slurs at an African-American photographer for the New York Post. 

Apparently, photographer G.N. Miller and Baldwin got into a heated exchange after he grabbed and threatened a Post reporter. The reporter recorded Baldwin saying, “I want you to choke to death,” after she’d questioned him about a lawsuit regarding his wife and her yoga studio.

Miller, a retired NYPD cop, then stepped in and Baldwin proceed to call him a “coon, a drug dealer,” so on and so forth. Eventually the cops were called and both filed harassment claims against each other.

Baldwin later took to Twitter (of course) to vent his frustrations, going on to call Miller an “ex-crackhead” and “ex jailhouse paparazzi.” He (of course) later removed the posts.

According to the Post, police are currently probing Baldwin’s rant as a hate crime.

In related news, Baldwin denies making racist comments. The 30 Rock star told TMZ:

“The claim of racist remarks is one of the most outrageous things I’ve heard in my life,” Baldwin himself added. A friend of Baldwin’s added that the alleged slur “is not on the tape, because it never happened.”

Hmmm…do you believe him? We wonder what fellow 30 Rock star Tracy Morgan has to say about this since they’re buddies.
