Yesterday Alec Baldwin went on a Twitter rampage against Daily Mail reporter George Stark for alleging that his wife tweeted throughout James Gandolfini’s funeral. Then he wrote obnoxious answers to all his friends’ rhetorical questions on Facebook statuses. And after that he left foul comments all over his second cousin’s “dream house” Pinterest page. Finally, so full of rage, and so out of options, he punched himself in the face and called it a day. Apparently his young wife Hilaria Baldwin looked at him after his temper tantrum, collapsed on the kitchen floor, hands still curled into fists and whispered, “he always looks so serene right after he threatens someone’s life.”
While it’s unclear why Alec Baldwin pretended that the Daily Mail’s a legitimate enough publication to get upset about, it is clear that he might have a few anger problems. MIGHT. He’s only gotten into a few kerfuffles over the years, so I don’t want to start tossing around diagnoses here. It’s just that, I don’t know, maybe he doesn’t need to respond to a defamatory article with tweets like this, ”I’m gonna find you, George Stark, you toxic little queen, and I’m gonna fuck…you…up. If put my foot up your fucking ass, George Stark, but I’m sure you’d dig it too much. George Stark, you lying little bitch. I am gonna f%#@ you up.”
He’s not only approaching homophobic territory at about 90 MPH with these tweets, but he’s also behaving like his own worst enemy. It would’ve taken one simple tweet to clear up the allegations in the story. If I know the people who follow celebrities on Twitter like I think I do, they would’ve taken care of the rest. #DailyMailFail could’ve easily trended. In fact, Alec Baldwin could be a celebrity crusader right now, a man determined to right the wrong in tabloid articles. But instead he chose to have a Twitter temper tantrum, which resulted in a self-imposed Twitter time-out — proving once and for all that even middle-aged actors need their naps. Hopefully Hilaria Baldwin remembers this the next time she let’s him get on the Internet unsupervised.
