Liberal darling Alec Baldwin attacked reporters SUnday outside his home in New York.
Baldwin called one of the reporters, a retired NYPD detective, a “coon” and “drug dealer.”
Alec Baldwin’s latest squabble with the media may have him in some serious hot water.
An NYPD rep told FOX 411 the 54-year-old actor is being investigated following an altercation he allegedly got into with a New York Post photographer.
“Our hate crimes task force is reviewing the case,” the rep said.
The Post reported the incident on Monday, in an article that detailed their staff’s side of the story.
The story claims reporter Tara Palmeri and photographer G.N. Miller approached Baldwin outside of his East Village residence in an attempt to get a comment from the actor about reports his pregnant wife, Hilaria Thomas, is being sued.
The duo said they encountered an angry Baldwin who told Palmeri “I want you to choke to death” and fired a racial slur at Miller, who is African American.
Miller, who is a retired NYPD detective, told police the actor called him a “coon,” a “drug dealer” and a “crackhead,” according to The Post.
