The New York Post reports 30 Rock star Alec Baldwin racially abused one of its Black photographers.

The newspaper states that one of its reporters, Tara Palmeri, approached the actor near his East Village home in Manhattan Sunday morning seeking a comment on a lawsuit filed against his wife, Hilaria, regarding her work as a yoga instructor.

The paper claims Baldwin grabbed Palmeri by the arm and told her, “I want you to choke to death.” The Post says they have an audio recording of the comments but it has yet to be published to its website. The Post also reports that Baldwin called its Black photographer, G.N. Miller–a retired cop– a “coon and a drug dealer.”

The Post also reports that Baldwin tweeted the following:

“Moments after I tweet about the Post, Ralston, the ex-crackhead ‘photographer’ shows up at my door w 1 of Murdoch’s nieces in tow.”

He added, “Ralston claims he’s ex NYPD!! That can’t be!!! Ex NYPD don’t become crackhead, ex jailhouse paparazzi!”

The tweets cannot be found on the actor’s Tweeter page, but TMZ  and The Post report they were deleted.

The cops were called and Miller and Baldwin filed harassment complaints against each other. Miller claims Baldwin bumped him in the chest, while the actor says the ex-cop pushed him. Miller claims he showed Baldwin his retired cop ID. But Baldwin allegedly called the ID a “fake’’ and added Miller was a “crackhead” and a “drug dealer” who “just got out of jail.”

For his part, Baldwin denied the claims.

Here is some background on the incident, as reported by TMZ:

Alec Baldwin says the claim he hurled a racial slur “is one of the most outrageous things I’ve heard in my life.” Baldwin says it never happened.

As for what caused the explosion of tempers … sources very close to Baldwin tell TMZ … it all emanated from a story in the Post a few days back, reporting that Alec’s wife was being sued by a student in her yoga class, claiming he was instructed to perform a dangerous move in an overcrowded class and was injured as a result.

Alec’s sources say the actor was infuriated because the Post story did not give her side, even though they claim they had multiple conversations with the reporter, saying the class was not overcrowded and the injured man got special attention because he was being careless and even admitted the accident was his fault.

Sources close to Alec say he’s the one who called the cops and lodged a harassment complaint against the Post photog.  One Baldwin source denies Alec threatened to choke the photog, claiming he said, “I hope you choke to death.”

TMZ caught up with Baldwin this morning to get a comment on the racism allegations. The actor simply smiled and walked into his East Village residence.
