A video of Alec Baldwin being harassed by a journalist has gone viral.

Jon Levine from New York Post shared a clip of him running into the actress on the city’s Upper East Side with his wife Hilaria Baldwin.

“NEW … I ran into Alec Baldwin on the Upper East Side,” Levine says in her video, which shows the couple walking into a private home as the journalist approaches them to inquire about the Rust shooting.

“Wait, Mr. Baldwin, I have to ask you, what brings you to New York City?” Levine asks while Hilaria Baldwin picks him up and tells him, “I asked you to go” and “I asked you to go away.”

Levine continues to ask Alec Baldwin why he is at this residence until the actor turns around and insults him for having approached him in a private home.

The couple walks in when Levine shouts, “Didn’t you really hit the trigger?”

The clip garnered thousands of views on Twitter and has garnered nearly 700,000 at the time of release.

The interaction comes a few days after Alec Baldwin gave an all-inclusive interview to ABC News about the tragic incident on the set of the film Rust who killed film photographer Halyna Hutchins.

In the interview, Baldwin told George Stephanopoulos that he did not pull the trigger – in comments that have been disputed by certain experts.

“The trigger was not pressed. I did not pull the trigger. I would never point a gun at anyone and press the trigger on them, never,” Baldwin said in the interview.

“So you never pressed the trigger?” Stephanopoulos repeated.

“No no no, I would never point a gun at anyone and hit the trigger, never,” Baldwin replied. “That was the training I had: You do not point a gun at anyone and press the trigger.”

The dramatic nature of the interview has also seen the 63-year-old accused of “acting”.

Days after the interview, Baldwin deleted his Twitter account, where his wife’s profile was also off the platform.

On Saturday, Hilaria Baldwin shared a long post on Instagram in support of her husband, in which she spoke of his “unimaginable pain.”

“I was afraid you would open up because I have seen your spirit shattered, your mental health shattered, your soul in unimaginable pain. Sometimes I wonder how much one body, one mind can endure. I will not lose you, “she wrote in part.
