Stephen Baldwin

Photog Incident NOT

Alec's Fault

EXCLUSIVE

062312_baldwin_launch
Stephen Baldwin had big bro Alec Baldwin's back last night ... telling TMZ that his brother is not to blame for laying that alleged smackdown on a photographer earlier this week.

The Baldwin brother (Stephen, that is) was outside Katsuya restaurant in L.A. Friday night ... where he gave us some insights into Alec's confrontation with a NY Daily News photog ... and he's adamant Alec has changed his ways.

Stephen says his brother wouldn't get violent without good reason. He adds ... if a pap instigated a "situation" ... any reaction is pure human nature.

For a family of famous or semi-famous celebrity-types those Baldwins sure look like they got beat by the ugly stick, don't they?

Load of carp. A Baldwin is an entitled rich 1% liberal douchbag. I get the impression that he feels he is above the law and everybody should kiss his asp. I wish he would just go away.

They are actually very good looking in person.and I agree with Stephen who I have met twice.... Alec was baited and I would be pissed too if someone had a camera in my face 24/7.

He was not there so what does he know besides Alex is feeding the family of non-famous brothers. If Alex doesn't want the camera in his face 24/7 then he should have opted for another line of work.

And we all know how much credibility Stephen and all the Baldwin brothers have--pillars of their community. No problems with anger.

It sounded more like he played it off as to not make any waves with Alec. But, it's twisted how Alec doesn't have Stephen's back through all his troubles. Alec seems more like the "I'm gonna get mine and everybody else can go to hell" type.

Of course Alec wouldn't hit someone "without good reason". Definition of a good reason for Alec: the sky is blue.

Clearly the incident was a setup. Why was one photog up close and the other guy taking the picture all set knowing what was about to happen? Setup to make Baldwin look bad.
