NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) -

Actor Alec Baldwin's latest blow up with the media is over a Tweet a British reporter says Baldwin's pregnant wife, Hilaria, sent during James Gandolfini's funeral on Thursday.

Baldwin fired back with a  Tweet that read: "I'm gonna find you . . . you toxic little queen, and I'm gonna f--k . . . you . . . up." The Tweet was later deleted. He reportedly deactivated his account, too.

The reporter is George Stark of the Daily Mail.

But Hilaria Baldwin says the Tweets were not sent while she was inside the Cathedral Church of St. John the Divine in Morningside Heights.

"I don't bring my phone into church.There is something with the timeline. I don't understand Twitter. I don't believe in bringing my phone to church. That is my time with God… the fact that people have made it into other things is really shameful. I'd really like for all of this to go away and we can deal with having a baby soon," Baldwin told reporters camped outside her home on Friday.

In February, the NY Post reported that Baldwin told a female reporter he wanted to choke her to death. He's also reported to have used a racial slur against a photographer. The Post said Baldwin also called the cameraman a "crack head" and a "drug dealer."  Baldwin denied he said anything racist.  Both he and the photographer  filed complaints with the police.

    Making New York City more energy efficient

    Making New York City more energy efficient

    More than half the population of New York City rides public transportation to work. No other metropolis in this country even approaches that percentage or the MTA's total number of riders. For that reason, New York likely ranks as the most energy-efficient city in the nation. But what would it take to make the city even more energy-efficient or even self-sufficient?

    Believe it or not this, some say New York's outdoor basketball courts are a dying entity. Even Rucker Park in Harlem -- where Dr. J and countless others honed their skills -- used to be standing room only all times of the day. Now there's plenty of room to stand on most days.Basketball programs like one at Chelsea Piers are gaining popularity. That means the place to hoop it up for many appears to be indoors.
