Posted Tuesday February 19, 2013 9:40 AM GMT

He’s never been one for controlling his mouth, and Alec Baldwin may be guilty of committing a hate crime after a verbal assault on New York Post photographer/retired NYPD detective G. N. Miller.

According to a report, the “30 Rock” actor encountered the man outside his East Village apartment building on Sunday (February 17) at which time he called him a “coon,” “crackhead,” and “drug dealer.”

Baldwin also allegedly told Post reporter Tara Palmeri, “I want you to choke to deal. Suck my d*ck,” and Ms. Palmeri supposedly caught the whole exchange on her audio recorder.

However, Alec’s pregnant wife Hilaria insists it’s all a contrived mess. “Shame on anyone who says my husband is racist. If you could only see/hear the dangerous things paparazzi will do & the lies to get a ‘story.’ ”

She also praised her beau for taking such good care of her. “Who is a better husband than @ABFalecbaldwin? He ventures outside our home to the streets littered w paparazzi & ‘reporters’ to get me melon.”
