Baldwin is berated

The incident, which quickly spiraled into a viral sensation, showcases Baldwin's reaction to being provoked over sensitive political issues and past controversies. This article delves into the explosive interaction, providing a front-row seat to the drama that unfolded.

Imagine sipping your morning coffee, only to witness a Hollywood star, Alec Baldwin, in a face-off with a determined protester! The scene was set in a bustling New York cafe when a pro-Palestine activist, armed with a phone camera, decided to confront Baldwin over his stance on Israel and the tragic 'Rust' set shooting incident.

Not one to shy away from controversy, Baldwin's response was swift and decisive. As the protester pressed him to declare "free Palestine" and provocatively questioned him about the 'Rust' incident, Baldwin remained firm. His request for the coffee shop to call the police marked the beginning of an intense showdown.

"Can you do me one quick favor?" Baldwin asked, moments before smacking the phone out of the protester's hand, an action that has since ignited a firestorm of reactions online.

Baldwin's History with Protests

The confrontation didn't end there. Baldwin, visibly agitated, held the door open, signaling the protester to leave. However, the protester persisted, further fueling the altercation by bringing up the 'Rust' shooting and dubbing Baldwin a "white devil" in a tweet accompanying the video.

This isn't Baldwin's first rodeo with pro-Palestine activists. A previous encounter in December saw him lashing out at protesters, showcasing his no-nonsense approach to such confrontations. His blunt responses and the subsequent mockery from activists highlight the ongoing tension between Baldwin and certain activist groups.

He angrily confronted a group in Manhattan, telling activists to "shut the f--- up" before being escorted from the scene by police. 

During that incident, a protester recorded him on their phone being asked whether he supported Israel. He said: "Because I’m in Hollywood? You ask stupid questions. Ask me a smart question."

The crowd of activists then mocked Baldwin over the 'Rust' shooting as he was led away.
