For a guy who shot and killed a woman, you’d thing Alec Baldwin would exercise more self-control than he’s shown lately.
Baldwin has a history of being prone to fits of rage though.
The latest example came as a Twitter user pointed out the actor’s hypocrisy in criticizing President Donald Trump.
Baldwin tweeted out:
Trending: Ilhan Omar Voted Out Today?
“Trump tried to choke a Secret Service agent. I mean …what more do you need?”
A user by the name of Mike Williams responded: “Better than shooting [your] cinematographer.”
In the now deleted tweet, Baldwin responded:
“When I am eventually not charged with any crime, I’ll come find you so you can apologize.”
“I’ll find you Mike.”
Well that’s just creepy…

Our friends at the Washington Examiner have the testy Twitter exchange:
“Trump tried to choke a Secret Service agent,” Baldwin tweeted Tuesday, according to screenshots, as the tweets have since been deleted. “I mean … what more do you need?”
“Better than shooting [your] cinematographer,” Williams replied.
“When I am eventually not charged with any crime, I’ll come find you so you can apologize,” Baldwin fired back. “I’ll find you Mike.”
Better than shooting you cinematographer

Williams shared a screen shot of the now deleted response from Baldwin:

Newsweek also reported on the incident:
Spotting the comment, Baldwin came back at him: “When I am eventually not charged with any crime, I’ll come find you so you can apologize.” Baldwin added: “I’ll find you Mike.”
The tweet was taken down by Baldwin but Williams’ reply is still up. “This is the best day ever. Come and get me. I’m waiting Alex,” he wrote, seemingly unperturbed by Baldwin’s message. He continued to reply to comments in the same thread from Baldwin’s original message.
Alec Baldwin has problems, and with these fits of anger, those problems are only going to get bigger..
How is Alec Baldwin, who has threatened people before, still allowed on Twitter? When he and I fought he did not threaten to "come find me" because he could have. And he knows how that would have worked out for him. Big tough guy in the movies. https://t.co/p9TgBNrxMQ
