Alec Baldwin - Senator Urges Hollywood Executives To Blacklist Alec Baldwin

A New York Senator has called on Hollywood's producers and directors to blacklist actor Alec Baldwin until he gets help for an alleged anger management problem.

A reporter and photographer have filed a harassment claim against the 30 Rock star, accusing Baldwin of hurling a racial slur at them during an altercation outside his home in the Big Apple on Sunday (17Feb13).

And state Senator Malcolm Smith insists the actor's latest run-in with the media is further proof he needs help.

A statement from Smith reads: "If these allegations are true, then no television network or film studio should hire the veteran actor until he seeks help. In today's modern age it's a disgrace that people still use remarks that provide hatred to others based on race or origin."

Smith also plans to contact Baldwin's employers at Nbc to encourage them to request that the actor sign up for anger management courses.

Sunday's altercation came after a New York Post reporter approached Baldwin and asked him for a comment on an injury lawsuit filed against his yoga teacher wife, Hilaria.

The reporter told police the actor grabbed her by the arm and told her, "I want you to choke to death" before allegedly using a racial slur in a verbal attack on her photographer sidekick, a retired New York police detective.

A spokesman for Baldwin, who also filed a harassment claim against the reporter, has called the accusations "completely false".

In a statement Baldwin adds: "The claim of racist remarks is one of the most outrageous things I've heard in my life."

The actor addressed the accusations in a tweet on Sunday, writing, "My publicist has just informed me that the 'photographer' from the Post is claiming I called him a racial epithet, prior to calling the cops. That's kind of magical thinking, isn't it? The Post accusing me of racism?"

And in an interview with Gothamist.com, Baldwin further denied the accusations against him, adding, "I don't think I've ever uttered a racial epithet to someone in my lifetime... He (photographer) banged into me with his shoulder, because he was right on top of me with the camera. In my mind, it was deliberate. I've had that happen before. It happens sometimes, because they want to bait you, they want you to do something."
