Future MSNBC Host Alec Baldwin Pins Paparazzi, Invokes Trayvon Martin Case
Alec Baldwin got into a dust up with a photographer--again--today, but no one is accusing the soon to be MSNBC host of racial slurs or overly pugnacious behavior.
A photographer approached the actor with his bride, Hilaria Baldwin, who just gave birth to the couple's baby girl a few days earlier. The new mom ducked into a nearby shop, leaving her actor beau to deal with the shutterbug.
Anyone who knows how hot Baldwin's temper can run will suss out what happened next. Baldwin was seen pinning the photographer to the hood of a car briefly during the exchange. No punches were exchanged, and no charges will be filed, apparently.
The Emmy winner, who has a history of heated Twitter comments, returned to the social media site to connect the scrap with a nationally famous case--the death of Florida teen Trayvon Martin.
I suppose if the offending paparazzi was wearing a hoodie and I shot him, it would all blow over," he tweeted.
Baldwin's most recent paparazzi scuffle allegedly involved racist speech, although the actor denied hateful language.
