Alec Baldwin Needs to Learn When to Shut Up

Oh, Alec Baldwin. You’re so funny on-screen and we so want to like you as a person — but punching a photographer and then invoking Trayvon Martin is definitely not going to win you any new fans.

The ‘30 Rock‘ and ‘Rock of Ages‘ star was at the Marriage License Bureau in New York City on Tuesday morning (likely taking care of the necessary paperwork to tie the knot with his fiancee Hilaria Thomas) when he saw a group of photographers. And he didn’t like that one little bit.

“He was like crazy, you know?” said Goran Veljic, who takes photos outside the office every day. “There was an eruption of mad. … You’re going to get a marriage license, you should be happy. What happened with this guy?”

After a heated exchange, Marcus Santos, a photographer from the New York Daily News, said, “He comes after me, starts shoving and punching me — one time, right in the chin. And then he started shoving me, and pushing me.”

Later on, Baldwin took to his Twitter account to share his own thoughts on the altercation:

Okay, being hunted by the paparazzi isn’t fun, but the “rich and famous” part that makes them pay attention to you in the first place should at least make it a little easier to deal with. But never mind all that — Baldwin still couldn’t let it go. And that’s when he went a bit too far:

Dude. So not cool.
