Last Modified: 4th Apr

Alec Baldwin had a brawl with an anti-Israel rabble-rouser who pressured him to shout “Free Palestine.”

The incident occurred at a New York City coffee shop.

In the footage, the actor asked a male staff to call the police as the woman harassed him.

The instigator, known online as Crackhead Barney and host of the podcast show Crackhead Barney & Friends, asked the 30 Rock star, “Alec, can you please say, ‘Free Palestine’ one time?”

“‘Free Palestine’ Alec, just one time, and I’ll leave you alone,” she added. “I’ll leave you alone, I swear.”

“You know he [Alex] is a criminal. Come on Alec, just say “Free Palestine” one time, just one time, please” the protestor urged the Hollywood star.

Despite the actor’s relative silence, she yelled, “F–k Israel, f–k Zionism, please say it.”

Crackhead Barney, known for her ambush-style interviews also brought up his involvement in the 2021 shooting incident on the film set of Rust – which resulted in the death of cinematographer Halyna Hutchins.

“Why did you kill that lady? You killed that lady and got no jail time,” the performance artist wailed at the 66-year-old - to get a response.

However, the Oscar nominee gestured for the woman to exit the shop before he slapped the phone, which had been recording him, out of her hand.

Photos showed Baldwin in an active struggle with the troublemaker, who wore a white bra and red boxers before she walked away from the shop.

This is not the first time the actor has been caught in an anti-Israel protest. Back in December 2023, he faced a mob demanding to know if he supported Israel or Palestine.

Although the cops guarded him as he opened a locked door near West 29th Street, he struggled to ignore the demonstrators’ comments.

“I support peace for Gaza,” he told the crowd at the time.

A source close to Baldwin revealed that he had no intention of joining the protest but was in the area for an acting class.
