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.

Somebody tell me what the difference is between a white guy calling someone a name and an African American rapping about killing and or assaulting someone. I would think we would better served to boycott the rapper. I call reverse racism! What happened to freedom of speech people!

Goddamn the NY Post is full of shameless liars. I mean I know it's common knowledge that the paper lacks credibility, but i always thought that was due to their lack of objectivity not because they flat out lie about ****. this takes he cake ! For the record, I didn't believe the racial epithet part. And I kinda wish someone had blacklisted Baldwin so he would have grounds to sue for defamation because he would so win on that one! He could've totally gotten around the 1st am. Issues.

There is another side to the Baldwin Story!!!!! He was waking his dog when this bitch Reporter Tara Palmeri from the New York Post put a mic in his face during his private moment with is dog.. The only Bitch on his mind was his own dog. The dumb birch ask him a personal question about live troubles he is have with his wife. This mic should have been buried between her legs. Her photographer was back and an ex cop. He should have known better then to do this. He has no morals. How can you put any thought into what Sen. Malcolm A Smith said by the sounds of Harvey interview his is a crook.

I think he smiled because the accusation was stupid! You are not going to convince me that he called a black photographer a damn coon in front of several other photographers with cameras, video recorders and microphones. Stop trying to cause trouble TMZ. The other statements have already proven to be false. This ridiculous statement will be as well.

WHY IS IT THAT EVERYDAY A BLACK PERSON CAN SAY CRACKER, WHITEY, TALK IN A NASTY DISRESPECTFUL WAY, RUDE CRUDE OPENLY IN THEIR MUSIC AND THEY R NEVER CALLED OUT? BUT LET A WHITE PERSON SAY ANYTHING CRITICAL THEY ARE RACISTS, THE BLACK'S ARE THE RACISTS?

The net York states senator Smith should be fired! How dare he requested that Alec Baldwin be blacklisted in Hollywood. Didn't you ever hear of freedom of speech. How can you be a Senator and not believe this. Senator smith please step down for condemning someone and asking for an american not be allowedc to provide for his family just for saying something that you don't like or agree with. You are abusing your power and that's worst than using bad choices of words. STEP DOWN because you are incapable of being a fare Senetor.

Wow the update changes everything! Alec said "I want you to choke to death" instead of "I want to choke you to death." Does that make everything ok now?
