Baldwin ‘shoves photographer’

Alec Baldwin shoved a photographer and knocked his camera to the ground in New York on Friday.

Alec Baldwin shoved a paparazzo in New York on Friday.

The incident was caught on camera by TMZ, and is the latest in a series of heated altercations Alec has had with paparazzi.

In the footage, Alec is seen pushing the photographer. When the snapper collects himself, Alec lunges back towards him and knocks his camera to the ground.

“You shoved me into a car,” the man is heard saying.

“You tried to hit me with a camera,” Alec replies.

The photographer then denies the claim as Alec warns him to leave.

“You take a walk… you don’t wanna get hurt, do ya?” the actor says.

Alec is then seen entering a hair salon and later emerges accompanied by a gay hairdresser. The video shows Alec putting the stylist in front of waiting cameras and asking him, “Am I a homphobe?”

“Yes, bigtime,” the stylist jokes. "I don’t think he’s homophobic. I don’t at all. Whenever he is in here, we are always talking and cutting hair. He booked an appointment for today, he always does and he is a good tipper,” the man tells TMZ.

Alec was accused of hurling a homophobic slur at a photographer waiting outside his Manhattan apartment earlier this week. The actor denies claims he called the paparazzo a “c**ksucking f*g” under his breath before entering a car with his wife Hilaria Baldwin and their three-month-old daughter.

“If @TMZ asserts that I used an anti-gay epithet, I will sue them,” the 30 Rock star tweeted.

“Acoustic analysis proves the word is fathead. Fathead.”

The hair stylist said he hadn’t seen video of the incident but insisted: "If he did say it… there was probably a good reason behind why.”
