Former 30 Rock star Alec Baldwin hurled an anti-gay slur at a photographer this morning in New York City.

TMZ.com has released video of the MSNBC talk show host angrily taking off after the photographer who he called a 'cocksucking fag.'

The photographer was taking photos of Baldwin, his wife and child inside a car outside their Manhattan apartment. The actor felt he had gotten too close to them.

'Get away from my wife and baby with the camera!' he shouted initially.

A woman, possibly his wife, can be heard saying, 'Let it go!' as Baldwin pursued the photographer.

He uttered the anti-gay slur just before getting back into the car.

This is not Baldwin's first anti-gay slur this year that has gone public.

Alec Baldwin called a Daily Mail reporter a 'toxic little queen' in a Twitter rant in June after a story ran claiming Baldwin's pregnant wife was tweeting during actor James Gandolfini's funeral.

'I'm gonna find you, George Stark, you toxic little queen, and I'm gonna fuck…you…up.' Baldwin said in one of a series of profanity-laden tweets.

Another tweet stated: 'I'd put my foot up your fucking ass, George Stark, but I'm sure you'd dig it too much.'
