Alec Baldwin is a jackass. There, I said it and I feel better.
Seriously though, the guy is more than unhinged and you have to wonder how long it will be until he hits the wrong person and they either don’t get up or he doesn’t get up.
Look at the Words with Friends thing that happened to him on the airplane. Everyone with any sense knows that even though we don’t like that we have to turn our phones off while the plane is taking off that it’s something that we just have to do.
He, being Alec Baldwin thought that he was better than everyone and had to make an issue out of it that should have been nothing more than him saying “my mistake” and shutting his phone off for the 20 minutes that they needed him to do it.
The guy has got a problem. A really big problem.
Appearing in a Manhattan courtroom Wednesday morning, actor Alec Baldwin pleaded guilty to second-degree harassment and will take anger management classes stemming from a November parking lot scuffle.
Baldwin has denied punching anyone in the clash. The former 30 Rock star’s lawyer previously said he would be vindicated. “Mr. Baldwin did not commit any crime, and we are confident that once this matter is fully investigated, it will be resolved swiftly and appropriately in court,” Abramson previously said. He didn’t show the video and declined to give details about it.
Prosecutors, meanwhile, said in court papers the 60-year-old star told a police officer the other driver “stole my spot,” used a vulgarity to describe him, and acknowledged: “I did push him.”
Alec Baldwin, who portrays President Donald Trump on Saturday Night Live, has gotten into several public confrontations over the years. Some have led to legal trouble. He was arrested in 1995 after being accused of slugging a photographer in Los Angeles, and he was thrown off an American Airlines flight in 2011 after a dust-up with a flight attendant who asked him to stop playing Words with Friends and turn off his cellphone.
In 2014, Baldwin was arrested in New York for allegedly getting belligerent with police who said they stopped him for bicycling the wrong way on a one-way street.
“Looks like you have a short fuse,” a Manhattan judge said when he put that case on track to be tossed out, which it ultimately was.
