Cops protect Alec Baldwin from curious Facebook commenters

Alec Baldwin has been hit with lawsuits for allegedly acting in ways that disrespected two customers at a Mount Kisco restaurant and another Mount Kisco man who targeted Baldwin in a Facebook post earlier this year.

Novelty Banana Corp. filed a $4 million suit Tuesday in New York federal court against Baldwin for allegedly “assaulting” partygoers of a New York strip club after they ignored him at a July 2017 birthday party Baldwin was supposed to be at.

The former “30 Rock” star was in the Upstate New York town where the Michael Bloomberg news service, Bloomberg LP, was headquartered on June 20.

New York Fried Chicken owner Betty Mamartino wrote to the Washington Post about the incident on June 21, 2018, “he was shouting and beating his chest and spitting,” she said. She also called Baldwin “agitated” in a Facebook post last August.

In a class action lawsuit filed Tuesday in US District Court in White Plains, N.Y., Lillian Lou has alleged Baldwin “assaulted and battered” her at the Irpinia Barn restaurant in Mount Kisco on June 30, 2017. Baldwin allegedly pulled the 74-year-old’s sweatshirt, “interfered with her flow of the meal” and spit on her, according to the suit.

But Baldwin’s response is…gargantuan.

Lawyers for Baldwin demand “damages in an amount to be determined at trial” for Lou’s alleged actions, as well as damages for “substantial emotional distress.” Baldwin’s legal team filed a motion to dismiss the suit, blaming the women for their actions and urging a judge to throw out the suit.

In the case of a man who confronted Baldwin over the on-air impersonation of President Trump and called him “degenerate” in a Facebook post, Baldwin’s lawyers have also called his actions inappropriate and unjustified.

“#BaldwinGate” was born in February after Baldwin played Trump on “Saturday Night Live” to protest the firing of veteran “SNL” cast member Michael Che.
