Alec Baldwin apparently has deleted his Twitter account — for a third time — after getting in trouble over a subject that has proved to be a sensitive one for him: his wife, Hilaria.
Baldwin reportedly sent profanity-laced tweets to a Daily Mail journalist who wrote that Hilaria had sent tweets about anniversary presents while attending James Gandolfini’s funeral service, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
"I am gonna f— you up," Baldwin wrote in one tweet, the story says.
The Daily Mail article, by writer George Stark, claimed that Hilaria sent tweets that "included a request for ideas about wedding anniversary presents and promotional notes about her upcoming appearance on the Rachael Ray show" while attending the funeral.
Baldwin sent scathing messages directed at Stark, including: "Someone wrote that my wife was tweeting at a funeral. Hey. That’s not true. But I’m gonna tweet at your funeral."
Other tweets from Baldwin called Stark a "lying little bitch" and a "f—ing little bitch," according to the report. Baldwin’s latest rant, which also reportedly included calling Stark a "toxic little queen," is being called homophobic by some in the media.
The actor also wrote that he doesn’t have a publicist now, after he "fired them," and insisted that his wife didn’t use her phone during the service.
Baldwin reportedly tweeted: "How much of this shit are people supposed to take? With these f—ing blatant lies EVERY DAY. My wife DID NOT use her phone, in any capacity, at our friends funeral. Now, f— this twitter + good luck to all of you who know the truth."
Baldwin’s wife also defended herself, tweeting: "I don’t know what hurts more: people randomly and maliciously writing lies about you, or the people who actually believe them."
Now Baldwin’s account appears to have been deleted. Clicking on his most recent Twitter handle, @ABFalecbaldwin, brings up a page that says, "Sorry, that page doesn’t exist!"
It’s not the first time Baldwin has deleted his account. In 2011, he deleted it after a high-profile dispute with American Airlines, and in 2012, he quit Twitter after marrying Hilaria.
