Another day, another tantrum from Alec Baldwin. Of course, I couldn’t resist illustrating this story with photos from Cannes that show Alec hoisting his pregnant wife, Hilaria, into the air while they made out for the photogs who were about ten feet (or less) away. So weird.
But yes, the tantrum monster has struck again, and this time, it started after a journalist (who doesn’t understand how Twitter works) from the Mail wrote an ill-advised story about how Hilaria supposedly tweeted during James Gandolfini’s funeral service. It must be noted that Hilaria was not funeral-tweeting, and I explain that part at the bottom of this post. The story was clearly erroneous and should have never been written in the first place, but naturally, Alec had to step in and say a thing or two or six about what he really thinks. Then he deleted his entire Twitter account, but not before Gawker grabbed a screenshot of the entire mess. Here are Alec’s relevant tweets in text format:
Someone wrote that my wife was tweeting at a funeral. Hey. That’s not true. But I’m gonna tweet at your funeral. — ABFoundation (@ABFalecbaldwin) June 27, 2013
George Stark, you lying little bitch. I am gonna f— you up. http://t.co/eoHfGGjD46 — ABFoundation (@ABFalecbaldwin) June 28, 2013
I want all of my followers and beyond to straighten out this f—ing little bitch, George Stark. @MailOnline http://t.co/eoHfGGjD46 — ABFoundation (@ABFalecbaldwin) June 28, 2013
My wife and I attend a funeral to pay our respects to an old friend, and some toxic Brit writes this f—ing trash http://t.co/eoHfGGjD46 — ABFoundation (@ABFalecbaldwin) June 28, 2013
If put my foot up your f—ing ass, George Stark, but I’m sure you’d dig it too much http://t.co/eoHfGGjD46 — ABFoundation (@ABFalecbaldwin) June 28, 2013
I’m gonna find you, George Stark, you toxic little queen, and I’m gonna f—…you…up. http://t.co/eoHfGGjD46 – ABFoundation (@ABFalecbaldwin) June 28, 2013
Man. Alec is so tightly wound — he’s like Cameron Frye in Ferris Bueller’s Day Off with the lump of coal that turns into diamond. Most of the people who read Stark’s story at the Mail would realize that it’s bogus and just forget about it, but Alec had to make a grand affair out of the situation. He could have simply tweeted a denial without profanity, but I guess then we wouldn’t be talking about Alec.
Meanwhile, Hilaria took to her own Twitter page to calmly explain the situation. She was not tweeting during Gandofini’s funeral at all but merely (later) retweeted someone else (Rachael Ray, who was not in attendance) who wrote something while the funeral was taking place. Enough said.
