Alec Baldwin allegedly launched a furious homophobic twitter tirade defending his wife Hilary after allegations were made by a British journalist that she was tweeting during the late James Gandolfini’s funeral. After he finished his rant, he then cancelled his Twitter account.
The 55 year-old actor went on the attack against a Daily Mail journalist George Stark after he wrote: “The pregnant yoga instructor’s social media feed was full of upbeat posts while ‘The Sopranos’ star’s friends, family and co-stars were gripped with grief at a New York Catholic church.”
Stark concluded his article with, “Messages included a request for ideas about wedding anniversary presents and promotional notes about her upcoming appearance on the Rachael Ray show.”
The 30 Rock star said later in a statement that his very pregnant wife, Hilaria had actually left her phone in her car. He also said, “It’s disgraceful that a reporter would manufacture and publish a story and not call for comment or explanation — especially when it’s intended to take away attention from honoring the memory of a beloved figure like James Gandolfini.”
Baldwin finished his statement with, “There are multiple witnesses to the fact that Hilaria left her phone in the car and wouldn’t, couldn’t, and didn’t tweet during the service…And as for thet tweets—1) some of the time stamps in the report were wrong because he listed the time of the original tweet not the retweet 2) she left early and wasn’t in the service at the time of tweeting 3) it’s possible that a previously scheduled tweet wasn’t canceled.”
He released the statement after his alleged furious “homophobic” Twitter tirade against the British Journalist and after he, once again, cancelled his Twitter account.
Before he deactivated his Twitter account Baldwin tweeted, “My wife and I attend a funeral to pay our respects to an old friend, and some toxic Brit writes this f****** trash.”
His next tweet continued, “My wife DID NOT use her phone, in any capacity, at our friends funeral.”
And to let the journalist know how he really felt, Baldwin posted a “tweet threat,” to the writer of the article where he threatened to find the Stark and “f****…you…up,” referring to Stark as a “toxic little queen.”
No one has been able to get in contact with Daily Mail journalist George Stark for any comments.
But Alec Baldwin wasn’t the only one upset by the article. Hilaria Baldwin explained that she was also very upset by his allegations. She went to her twitter account and tweeted:
She finished with one last tweet on the subject:
Quite rightly, the couple were angry at the allegations that the 29 year-old Hilaria was tweeting about wedding anniversary presents and future television appearances during Gandolfini’s funeral service.
Mr Baldwin has “blown his top” in public before. In 2011, he was ejected from an American Airlines flight when he wouldn’t turn off his cell phone once the aircraft’s doors were closed for departure. He later apologised for his behaviour.
Considering how angry he sounded in his alleged furious “homophobic” Twitter Tirade at the British Journalist, we doubt that he will be apologising this time.
