Alec Baldwin and Garrett Jackson, Mitt Romney's former personal aide, got into a sparring match on Twitter on Wednesday after Baldwin tweeted praise for the upcoming documentary "Above All Else," about the Keystone XL oil pipeline in Texas.
The film ABOVE ALL ELSE shows how oil, and keystone in particular, destroy our lives..
Need to do a film on how you and Hollywood distort our lives RT@ABFalecbaldwin:ABOVE ALL ELSE shows how oil, and keystone destroy our lives
Following Jackson's dig, Baldwin went on the offensive in a series of tweets that the actor has since deleted. Jackson posted many of them on his own feed, with particular attention paid to the comments Baldwin made about Jackson being on his knees in his Twitter photo.
Losing that election still hurts like hell, dun'it?
Actually my hardest job yet-revitalizing your career @ABFalecbaldwin
What lost cause you working on now
Maybe a Newt Gingrich fashion line?
Come on! Being a homophob has gotten you in enough trouble@ABFalecbaldwin
You're on your knees in that photo.
What's up with that, Garrett?
Ha! While I am down there I will pick up the pieces of your failed show @ABFalecbaldwin
While you're on your knees, you can polish my Emmys.
Glad @ABFalecbaldwin agent finally got to him to tell him to stop. Noticed he has deleted the on the knees tweet.
@ABFalecbaldwin just got an angry voicemail from his publicist. He's deleted all his tweets he sent to me. Guy can't help himself.
HuffPost Entertainment contacted representatives for Baldwin, who had no comment on the matter. Baldwin didn't make direct comment on the Jackson tweets on his feed, but he did post the following:
The ones to ignore are....
you can guess.
Baldwin also took a swipe at ABC News, which reported his battle with Jackson.
Add abcnewsblog to Breitbart, buzzfeed, dailymail as ...challenged...
Last year, Baldwin apologized to GLAAD after posting a string of tweets, including some with homophobic language, that were directed at a reporter for the Daily Mail.
