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.

Won't buy ANY product he endorses!
Will not watch him 1 second on tv.
He called his own daughter a fat pig.
What kind of person is that?
Too too many times he lost it!
Ban Alex.

What a racist, thoughtless, rude little pig this man is. I'm sure his sweet daughter is ashamed of her racist daddy.

Since TMZ doesn't word filter coon...it isn't disparagement...it's semantics.

Jerk. It's duly noted that he thinks this is funny. I wish he would go away.

I wish this loser would get hit by a car in NY. That would be divine justice. This smug SOB thinks he is so funny and talented. That's why these idiots should not be given movie star status and treated like royalty. They are s***bags and should be treated as such.

This guy is one of the biggest d-bags around. It's amazing how Hollywood continuously kisses this guy's ass. They don't have the balls to criticize him. What a jerk!!

I'm assuming he just didn't want to call your reporter a douche bag.

Did it cross anyone's mind that he's not racist, and that he just said something in anger to a person he had an issue with, without it meaning to blanket an entire group of people? Sure, he still shouldn't say it, but saying it to one person doesn't make him racist, it just makes him ignorant and careless.
