Alec Baldwin and Reasoned Discourse
Alec Baldwin, the phlegmatic artist, had another intelligent conversation with a photographer today. This time, a photographer was standing on the street across from Baldwin’s home the day before Baldwin’s wedding when Baldwin accosted him and grabbed his upper arm. The photographer, who was half a foot shorter, protested, “You’re breaking my arm.” The following exchange occurred among an unseen onlooker, the photographer, and Baldwin:
Onlooker: “Hey, just leave him alone, all right? Just leave him alone, all right?”
Photographer: “You’re breaking my arm here. Breaking my arm here. "
Baldwin turns and starts to walk away, but then …
Photographer: “All we’re doing is taking your picture.”
Baldwin immediately turns around and decides to get in the little man’s face, saying:
Baldwin: “I want you to shut the fuck up … get out of here…I want you to get out of here."
Photographer: “I’m not doing anything here.”
Baldwin: “Leave my neighbor alone.”
Photographer: “I was just telling you to have a good wedding.”
Baldwin: “Shut up! Shut up! Leave my neighbor alone. Did you hear what I said? Did you hear what I said?”
Then Baldwin looks at him, disgusted, and hurls the final blow with all his might:
Baldwin: “You little girl.”
And walks away. The photographer could take that as a threat. After all, we know what Baldwin thinks of little girls.
