Alec Baldwin is not happy with a particular Daily Mail reporter after he accused Baldwin’s wife, Hilaria, of tweeting while inside the church for James Gandolfini’s funeral.
The reporter, George Stark, noticed some odd activity on Hilaria’s Twitter account during the time the service was held and called her out on it, much to Baldwin’s fury. The actor took to the social media site to vent, reportedly saying, “I’m gonna find you . . . you toxic little queen, and I’m gonna f–k . . . you . . . up.”
The tweet, and the account, were both deleted the same day. Hilaria spoke to the press about the incident and said the whole thing was a misunderstanding.
“I don’t bring my phone into church.There is something with the timeline. I don’t understand Twitter. I don’t believe in bringing my phone to church. That is my time with God… the fact that people have made it into other things is really shameful. I’d really like for all of this to go away and we can deal with having a baby soon,” she said.
Baldwin, who is well known for his quick temper, sent a statement to Huffington Post about the incident, saying, “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 honor the memory of a beloved figure like Mr Gandolfini.”
Gandolfini’s death came as a shock to fans and friends across the globe; the “Sopranos” actor was on vacation in Italy when he succumbed to a massive heart attack.
