During last night's exclusive interview with Gothamist, Alec Baldwin told us that the NY Post would be running a story this morning accusing him "of using a racial epithet against" one of their photographers. And lo and behold, their EXCLUSIVE front page story declares: "Alec's 'Race' Rant. Black photog: Baldwin used racial slurs."

The confrontation took place yesterday morning near Baldwin's home, while he was walking his dogs. Post reporter Tara Palmeri approached the actor for a comment about his wife being sued by one of her yoga students. She reportedly recorded the confrontation, in which the actor allegedly tells her, "I want you to choke to death," while grabbing her arm. The tabloid has a photo of Baldwin grabbing Palmeri's arm, in which the reporter is seen smiling like a starstruck fan. He then allegedly turned his attention to the photographer, G.N. Miller.

Last night, Baldwin, who has long battled paparazzi and various New York press outlets, told us: "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." However, the tabloid claims he called Miller, their photographer—who is "a decorated retired detective with the NYPD’s Organized Crime Control Bureau"— a "crackhead," a "coon," and "drug dealer." The former comment was allegedly in a Tweet the actor later deleted, while other outbursts occurred on the street.

Miller says, “He was saying some serious racist stuff. He said some choice words about my mother, and he was telling people in the street that I’m a drug dealer." But this morning Baldwin reminds the masses that his foundation has donated to the Arthur Ashe Learning Center.

Both parties have filed harassment claims against each other—however, unless someone can track down the "dad pushing his child in a stroller" that the Post claims Baldwin ran up to, the incident is purely he said-she said and will likely not go very far.

The NYPD press office declined to comment when we called this morning, and was unable to confirm if G.N. Miller is a former NYPD detective. We've reached out to Baldwin and the NY Post for further comment, and will update when we hear back.
