A New York State Senator is begging 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 photog.
State Senator Malcolm Smith tells our sources … he was outraged after hearing reports that the former “30 Rock” star lashed out at a black photographer, calling him a “coon” and a “drug dealer.” Smith was also upset at the report Baldwin threatened a female reporter.
“If these allegations are true, then no television network or film studio should hire the veteran actor until he seeks help,” Smith said.
He continued, “In today’s modern age it’s a disgrace that people still use remarks that provide hatred to others based on race or orgin.”
Smith says he”s contacting NBC and will ask the network to push Baldwin into anger management courses.
Baldwin signed a 2-year TV deal with Universal (the TV arm of NBC) back in December.
A source close to Baldwin tells our sources … “As someone who”s been regularly investigated, [Smith] should be much more careful about jumping to conclusions.”
FYI — the feds investigated Smith regarding his link to a Hurricane Katrina charity accused of exploiting the tragedy”s victims … but he was never charged with a crime.
