Alec Baldwin has denied that he used a racist slur during an incident with a reporter and a photographer from the New York Post.

The Post has alleged that Baldwin called their photographer G.N. Miller, a retired NYPD detective, 'a c**n' and 'a drug dealer'.

Police are now involved in the incident, which took place in the East Village in New York.

Baldwin was approached by Miller and reporter Tara Palmieri, who asked for a comment about a lawsuit against his wife, Hilaria.

It's alleged that Baldwin took Palmieri's arm and told her 'I want you to choke to death' before turning his attention to Miller.

“He was saying some serious racist stuff,” Miller said. “He said some choice words about my mother, and he was telling people in the street that I’m a drug dealer.

“He could have said a lot of other stuff. But he used all of the stereotypes associated with black people.”

Baldwin later tweeted: “Thank u 2 NYPD officers who came to my home 2day so that I could file a formal complaint against NY Post 'photographer' who assaulted me.”

He also added: “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?”

Both Miller and Baldwin have filed harassment claims against each other.
