“30 Rock” star says he actually called photographer a fathead

Alec Baldwin has one again been accused of using an anti-gay slur against a member of the media.

But this time, he's denying it.

Baldwin, who on Thursday won a legal victory against a woman accused of stalking him and his wife Hilaria, didn't take long to draw attention back to his infamous temper, generating headlines after he allegedly called a paparazzo a “c—sucking f-g.”

TMZ published video of Baldwin lashing out at a photographer in New York on Thursday, after the photographer ventured toward his family to get a shot.

Toward the end of the confrontation, the former “30 Rock” star yelled something that could be interpreted — TMZ certainly did so — as “c—sucking f–g.”

However, the actor denied the reports later in the day, claiming that he had actually called the photographer a “fathead.”

“Acoustic analysis proves the word is fathead. Fathead,” Baldwin wrote. “Anti-gay slurs are wrong. They not only offend, but threaten hard fought tolerance of LGBT rights.”

Baldwin managed to work a conspiratorial edge into his denial, adding, “right wing liars want those words to come out of liberals’ mouths. They need them to.”

In June, Baldwin issued an apology to GLAAD after referring to Daily Mail reporter George Stark as a “queen” and threatened to beat him, after Stark accused Baldwin's wife, Hilaria, of texting during funeral services for deceased “The Sopranos” star James Gandolfini.

“My ill-advised attack on George Stark of the Daily Mail had absolutely nothing to do with issues of anyone's sexual orientation,” Baldwin wrote in his apology. “My anger was directed at Mr. Stark for blatantly lying and disseminating libelous information about my wife and her conduct at our friend's funeral service. As someone who fights against homophobia, I apologize.”

    firstly, Alec, I do not fault you for anything you chose to say since the paparazzi are known for their insults. If they get one back, they have themselves to blame. I'm not for all this PC stuff. Say what you think, mean what you say and make no apologies. It's your RIGHT to express yourself. This is America and it is still a democracy. Paparazzi have no concerns for the harm they cause. They care for no one except their bank book. Turn the hose on them like Jennifer Garner Affleck. The paparazzi don't care what they say when there are children present. If they get their feelings hurt I would be amazed since they are devoid of feeling anything except how much they will get paid. So, insult them. They deserve it. Say what you damn well please. They wouldn't get insulted if they were not there.
