The response to actor Alec Baldwin’s outrageous behavior toward a New York Post reporter and photographer Sunday morning has been fast and furious, but no one said it better than @CuffyMeh on Twitter: “Alec Baldwin sucks at Black History Month.”

New York state Sen. Malcolm Smith is furious over Baldwin’s alleged racist rant, saying the actor needs “anger management.”

TMZ reported Monday that Smith has called on Hollywood – “both TV & movie producers — to SUSPEND Alec Baldwin from all projects … in the wake of allegations he spewed a racist epithet at a NY [photographer].”

According to a New York Post report, Baldwin grabbed a Post reporter who asked him a question Sunday and told her, “I want you to choke to death.” He then turned his wrath on Post photographer G.N. Miller, who also is a retired New York City police detective, and allegedly called him “a coon,” “a crackhead” and a “drug-dealer” and made “disparaging remarks” about Miller’s mother.

“If these allegations are true, then no television network or film studio should hire the veteran actor until he seeks help,” Smith told TMZ. “In today’s modern age it’s a disgrace that people still use remarks that provide hatred to others based on race or origin.”

The article said Smith was planning to contact NBC, Baldwin’s employer, to ask the “network to push Baldwin into anger management courses.”

The backlash against Baldwin is also trending on Twitter, since Baldwin is a spokesman for Capital One.

Author Brad Thor tweeted Monday, “‪@BradThor If Alec Baldwin were a conservative, the hacks at ‪@MSNBC would be covering his racism wall-2-wall.”

Baldwin’s cousin, Harriet, who has been blocked by Alec, tweeted, “‪@HarrietBaldwin @AskCapitalOne ‪@CapitalOne Do you condone spokesperson Alec Baldwin’s racist language and threatening behavior? ‪#AngerManagement”

Some comments from Twitter as reported by Twitchy:

    The irony. . . an enlightened, humanitarian, liberal celebrity using violent racist slurs. How can that be? Then again can you really believe the far right leaning NY Post mob either?

      Facts and libs are always mutually exclusive as proven by the above comment. Sadly.

    Stop whining and just do it! Refuse to watch anything he is a part of and do not purchase any products or services that he is an advertiser for. Same goes for Bill Maher. The only reason these guys are in the news is because we buy into their bad behavior. I have not participated in anything these two are involved in for years. Them and a few more people.

  • ileen

    omg you make a big deal over his anger issues now??????????? Where were you when he was bad mouthing Pres Bush and threating to leave the country if Bush was elected. He is known for bad mouthing alot of people but I guess it was ok, but now because of their race it becomes an issue. LETS STOP THE DOUBLE STANDARDS AND START REPORTING TRUTHFULLY FOR EVERYONE!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Trust the tabloids?

    Ummm?…this is still an alleged rant, correct? The NY Post claimed to have footage and audio recording. Where is it? This publication has corroboration but they're not releasing it? Sounds shady to me. I'll join the rush to crucify Alec when the recordings back their story up. Until then….

    Why all of the fuss about the fool calling a black man a slang term describing a ring tailed, masked rodent. He committed criminal acts in assulting the female reporter and threatening her But all that we hear about is the name calling, Sticks and stones, and all of that.
