Alec, Alex, is there really a difference? In this case, yes, a big one.
Lefty radio host David Shuster was trying to call out actor Alec Baldwin over a paparazzi issue this morning, but instead directed his fury toward a guy named Alex Baldwin, a California-based designer with an addiction to (no joke) hot tea. Shu, between us girls, are you feeling okay? You need sleep? Even so, a fiercely loyal follower, Mocha333, is firmly on Shuster’s side. He tweeted, “Did someone hit David Shuster in the head? He’s starting to sound logical this week.”
Um, not so fast Mocha.
Here’s what happened: This morning Alec Baldwin reported that a photographer “almost hit him in the face.” He soon announced that the photographer had gone to the hospital claiming injuries. He snarled, “I suppose if the offending paparazzi was wearing a hoodie and I shot him, it would all blow over.”
This apparently really pissed Shuster off…
,@alexbaldwin His camera “almost hit you,” thus you respond w/ violence?You need some serious therapy,man.
