Jack Donaghy is mad as hell, and he’s not going to take it anymore. Earlier today, Alec Baldwin punched a New York Daily News photographer in the chin because he was taking a photo of the “30 Rock” star leaving the Marriage Licensee Bureau in Manhattan.
[Baldwin] popped lensman Marcus Santos once in the face outside the Worth St. office after apparently obtaining a license to wed fiancee Hilaria Thomas. Santos was standing innocently with two other photographers when Baldwin, 54, approached with an angry glare.
Eyewitness Goran Veljic said Baldwin’s face filled with rage as he went after the shooters.
“He was like crazy, you know?” said freelancer Veljic, who takes photos outside the office every day. “There was an eruption of mad…You’re going to get a marriage license, you should be happy. What happened with this guy?” (Via)
That block quote is a lot funnier if you change “popped” to “pooped.” Anyway, the Daily News is basically painting Baldwin as some kind of angry-glaring (totally not repetitive), puppy-punching monster, and Santos as the wide-eyed, newborn puppy, not a guy who earns his living by snapping intrusive pictures of celebrities. Baldwin later wrote on Twitter, “A ‘photographer’ almost hit me in the face with his camera this morning #allpaparazzishouldbewaterboarded.” Hey Jackie D, I got some advice for you: #YOLO. #YOLO.
