Alec Baldwin rages against 'New York Post' on Twitter
Apparently, there’s just one thing Alec Baldwin hates more than those lying so-and-sos at the New York Daily News: those lying so-and-sos at the New York Post.
In June, Baldwin spent an entire day raging at the Daily News on Twitter after he got into a physical confrontation with one of the paper’s photographers. One of his tweets even included this totally reasonable hashtag: “#allpaparazzishouldbewaterboarded.” Today, though, another news source has stoked the 30 Rock star’s ire: the Post, which recently published an inflammatory column that calls Baldwin “bully-boy,” “blubberous,” and a “bloviating psycho who seduce[s] small women and bash[es] puny photographers,” all while defending his alleged stalker Genevive Sabourin. Andrea Peyser, you simply must learn to form an opinion.
Baldwin, naturally, wasn’t about to take this lying down. He unleashed a scorching ten-part rant against the Post on his Twitter page this morning, blasting them for “politicizing a crime” and, in his most cutting barb, ultimately labeling Peyser’s column “unmemorable.”
The Emmy winner later deleted all but one of the tweets — but because trying to get rid of something that’s been posted on the Internet is as useless as searching for meaning in a Pauly Shore movie, the messages have been captured for posterity by The Hollywood Reporter‘s Jordan Zakarin. Read ’em and weep, if you’re Rupert Murdoch:
