Oooo Alec Baldwin! Sounds like the fire inside you is BLAZING yet again!
Following news of his wife’s lawsuit with a yoga student, a New York Post reporter and photographer caught up with him on the street to ask him about it.
Alec, who was reportedly already pissed at the Post for publishing the suit story WITHOUT his wife’s side, then allegedly grabbed the reporter’s arm and angrily said, “I want to choke you to death.”
He then allegedly called her photographer partner a “coon” and a crackhead! And this particular bit of of the story has been extremely worrisome as the pap was African American, and coon is a racial slur.
But Alec responds to the photog accusations by saying:
“[The report of the slur] is one of the most outrageous things I’ve heard in my life.”
Outrageous is right!
And one source very close to Baldwin says he didn’t threaten the reporter; he just merely said, “I hope you choke to death.”
Oh. MUCH better!
But the reporter, Tara Palmeri, has already gone to the cops with audio evidence of the alleged threat. So we’ll see how this one pans out!
Both Tara and Alec have filed harassment claims in the incident. And as you well know, this isn’t the first time Alec has found himself in a sticky situation with those working for celebrity journalism!
His alleged punching fit back in the summer eventually resulted in 0 charges, but it stained his rep pretty nasty-like.
So stay tuned! This sudsy soap opera is sure to continue!
A South Carolina-based Mexican restaurant called Taco Cid is learning that the hard way this week after coming under fire for selling t-shirts printed with the words “How To Catch An Illegal Immigrant” over an illustration of tacos set as bait under a makeshift trap.
The tees, which are an insane each, are apparently in high demand from people all over the country, at least according to the restaurant.
Lisa Navarrete of the National Council of La Razasaid of the t-shirt:
“Of course it’s offensive. It’s mean to be. This is simply a failing business trolling for attention… We would recommend people not patronize this place. Sure, because of this insult but really due to the fact that a restaurant this clueless about the Latino community can’t possibly make a decent taco.”
Meanwhile, Taco Cid claims that the shirts are meant to be a humorous dig at the current illegal immigration problem in the country, stating on their website:
“Our t-shirts were created as a witty and comical statement regarding ILLEGAL immigrants. There are NO racial nor hate remarks towards any specific ethnic group. We do believe ILLEGAL immigrants are burdening the system we support and live under, thereby, causing us to work harder and pay higher taxes to support the illegal activities, which our government has simply chosen to look the other way. Is it “racist” to disagree with those who are not supporting the American system?”
We believe in the restaurant’s right to freedom of speech, but we also think there are better ways of fighting for your beliefs that don’t involve offensively racist statements disguised as lame attempts at humor.
Ryan Lochte’s sister Megan isn’t a racist or a dim piece of trash who makes her brother look like Mensa’s golden child. Megan is actually just a political performance artist who was playing a racist character to show society how ignorant some can people be toward other cultures. We’re the dumb bitches for not getting it, okay?
After a video of Megan mouth farting out all sorts of priceless racist dingles about Chinese people went viral yesterday, she back pedaled her way to Radar and told them it wasn’t an interview. It was a skit and Megan was playing a racist character and that shitty dunce cap of a hat was given to her by the costume department to make her dumb character look even more dumb. Okay, Megan didn’t say that last part, but I thought I’d throw it in for her. You’re welcome, Megan.
Here’s Megan pouring the shit of a bull all over laps before pulling our dicks with this explanation:
This was not a real interview, and it in no way reflects my true feelings or persona whatsoever. The intent was to make fun of the ignorance of people who actually do not have an understanding of other cultures and speak in racist ways. The skit and my character were supposed to be making fun of ignorance and not any culture or class of people. I do see how it was highly offensive to the viewer, but as seen by today’s widespread outrage, it clearly did increase awareness of the ignorance of those who are racist. While the intent of the script was to shed light on cultural ignorance. I realize that in application it did offend people, and for that I apologize.”
Who does this bitch think she is, Sarah Silverman?
Instead of acting like she gave all of us a “The more you know moment….”, Megan should’ve kept her explanation simple. She should’ve just said, “I’m a Lochte! What do you expect? YOLO!” We all would’ve nodded our heads and kept moving.
