Alec Baldwin’s Twitter tirade
Alec Baldwin has angrily slammed reports his pregnant wife sent a series of tweets during James Gandolfini’s funeral in New York City yesterday.
The Sopranos actor was laid to rest in New York City on Thursday and a host of stars turned out to pay their respects. Reports later emerged claiming Alec’s pregnant wife Hilaria had taken to her Twitter account during the service, but he has vehemently denied the allegations in an angry tirade on the social networking site.
“Someone wrote that my wife was tweeting at a funeral. Hey. That’s not true. But I’m gonna tweet at your funeral,” Alec began, before his rage escalated.
The actor then turned on Daily Mail writer George Stark for making the claims about Hilaria.
“George Stark, you lying little b***h. I am gonna f%#@ you up,” the actor wrote, linking to the article on the Daily Mail’s website. “My wife and I attend a funeral to pay our respects to an old friend, and some toxic Brit writes this f**king trash…
“I’m gonna find you, George Stark, you toxic little queen, and I’m gonna f**k...you...up.”
Alec then made an odd admission, where he claimed to have “fired” his publicist.
He urged people to believe that his wife had not sent any tweets during the funeral. A source has told the New York Daily News that Hilaria posted the messages online on their way home afterwards. Witnesses insisted the yoga instructor left her phone in the car before they arrived at the service.
“How much of this sh*t are people supposed to take? With these f**king blatant lies EVERY DAY,” he fumed. “My wife DID NOT use her phone, in any capacity, at our friends funeral. Now, f**k this twitter + good luck to all of you who know the truth (sic).”
The messages were later removed from Alec’s Twitter account, which has apparently been shut down.
“It is disgraceful that this reporter manufactured a story and never called for comment or explanation, especially when it needlessly diverted attention away from a day to honour the memory of a beloved figure like Mr. Gandolfini,” a representative for Alec said on Thursday evening.
Hilaria has also responded to the claims, with the following post: “I don't know what hurts more: people randomly and maliciously writing lies about you, or the people who actually believe them."
