ALL SMILES

New info on the audio tape of the confrontation between Baldwin and the Post photog.  Sources tell us ... there is NO mention of a racial slur on the tape.  And, we're told, the initial story -- that Baldwin allegedly said "I want to choke you to death" -- is incorrect.  We're told in fact Baldwin said, "I want you to choke to death," which is exactly what Baldwin claimed he said.

Alec Baldwin
had a bizarre response when TMZ asked if he really did hurl a racial slur at a black photographer this weekend ... he smiled. 

Baldwin just arrived at his NYC apartment -- which has now become a base for news reporters and photographers looking for a comment from the actor after he allegedly called a black photog a "coon" and threatened a female reporter this weekend ... something his people strongly deny.

Though Baldwin didn't say anything as he entered the building ... his reaction is definitely interesting.

Um.... "I want to choke you to death" and "I want you to choke to death" are both bad things to say. Way to clear your name Alec Baldwin, you are a saint.

All these gossip sites had to do was go to the reporter's own page and see that he said "I want you to choke to death" NOT what they are reporting he said. The NY Post has been hounding this guy for a long time. Whether you like him or not, I think his comment above is valid if you had the NYP or other gossip rags like TMZ hounding you constantly. And of course, now we hear there was no racial slur. BS reporting AGAIN by TMZ!

Whew! Glad to see he only wished death upon her rather than threatening to cause it.

Whew! Glad to see he *wished* death upon her rather than wanting to be the cause of it. I think that difference really humanizes him a bit.

I knew he didn't do it! I do not believe for one second that Alec Baldwin said that. It would be so out of character.

He knows he f$%ked because the woman was recording and the photog was an ex-cop.

racial slurs are wrong, what celebrities need are words that are slurs against papparrazi, that I would NOT have a problem with, celebrites have a right to not be hounded by these animals.

This is simple - you f.u.ck with the bull - you get the horns. Any pap stupid enough to deal with this guys has been forwarned.

Wake up and see the line in the sand paps. He's not interesting to people unless he is confronted by paps and that is how they make him interesting...racisist? I dont buy it.

People who watch Baldwin on SNL and 30 Rock never stopped watching him when he f'd up in the past cuz he is good. Now he has a development deal with NBC to create a show and he aint goin anywhere

Paps back off of this one cuz he is untouchable...u cant create a controversy behind this guy because he does not want you near him

TMZ...you printed almost everything about this story incorrectly. Just to get headlines. You are becoming more and more like those outrageous newspapers at the checkout counter. The truth doesn't matter to you, it's the number of hits you generate.
