Alec Baldwin's verified Twitter account was deleted late on Thursday after the apparently enraged actor published a series of tweets aimed at a Daily Mail journalist who wrote a story about his wife's conduct at James Gandolfini's funeral.
Yahoo News captured Baldwin's angry, occasionally homophobic tweets before his account was taken offline.
According to the Daily Mail, Baldwin's wife, Hilaria, tweeted during Gandolfini's funeral service at New York's Cathedral Church of Saint John:
Messages included a request for ideas about wedding anniversary presents and promotional notes about her upcoming appearance on the Rachael Ray show.
The 29-year-old, who is due to give birth to her first child this summer, did make time to pay tribute to the late actor amid the social media flurry, writing: ‘The circle of life is unbelievable--birth, life, death... Please take care of yourselves as life is fragile. Rest in Peace Jimmy.’
