Stop me if you’ve heard this one. Remember that guy Alec Baldwin got into a fight with? No, not that one. Or that one. Not even this one. The man in question, Wojciech Cieszkowski, first appeared as himself in a classic Alec-Baldwin-Rage-Out incident from all the way back in 2018, in which the two men were heard screaming Fuck Offs! at one another over a Manhattan parking spot.
Alec is alleged to have punched Wojciech, resulting in him receiving a charge of misdemeanor assault and harassment and an order to attend a one-day anger management class (and we all know Alec’s thoughts on anger management). Despite the charge, Alec sued his alleged victim for defamation in November 2019, claiming he never really hit the man. Well now (!!!), Wojciech is countersuing.
Page Six reports that new papers filed in Manhattan Supreme Court by Wojciech are in direct protest of Alec’s butt-hurt feelings regarding his otherwise spotless and saintly reputation. And for the record, this Wojciech guy has definitely got Alec’s number, because he holds nothing back.
“Alec Baldwin was already exactly the kind of person who the public thought would punch someone in the face over a parking spot”, Cieszkowski said. “When it comes to his notorious temper and penchant for assaulting people in the streets, Alec Baldwin is the classic libel-proof plaintiff. Now he has the gall to sue his victim, claiming he was ‘defamed’ and ‘falsely imprisoned’ based on the distinction between a hard push and a punch. Seriously?”
But the first-class shade didn’t end there:
“Like the man he plays on television, Alec Baldwin is an entitled celebrity with a long history of verbally and physically mistreating others he sees as beneath him.”
Alec’s lawyers responded with some mumbling about how this entire incident shouldn’t be clogging up the courts and taking away time and resources from REAL victims. Maybe these lawyers are referring to the other victims of Alec’s grandpappy-woken-from-his-nap-by-neighborhood-kids rage explosion. What Alec really needs is some ME time. He should slip into some nice Isotoner slippers, hop into a tufted La-Z-Boy recliner and squeeze one of his Emmys whenever he’s feeling the need to pop off.
