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.

    When he's not slaying three-headed beasts with his olive-wood club, Hercules carves out time for the little people. Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson treated fans from the Harlem Boys and Girls Club and Big Brothers Big Sisters NYC to an advance screening of his new film. I caught up with the larger-than-life action hero after the big surprise.

    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?

    All of us feel the same way about "cooties": Eww. At the Goddard School on the Upper West Side, a high-tech machine is keeping "cooties" out of the classroom. "This is the latest and then most effective sanitization method available today," says Bill Swan, the owner of the Goddard School. He purchased the ZONO Sanitech for his school about six months ago. The machine is the size of a double refrigerator and uses oxygen to kill viruses and bacteria.
