Alec Baldwin has deleted his Twitter account after hitting out at a journalist.

The 55-year-old actor has removed himself from the social networking site after threatening to ''f**k up'' a reporter from the Daily Mail newspaper, who accused his pregnant wife of posting self-promotional tweets while attending James Gandolfini's funeral yesterday (27.06.13).

Alec - who has deleted his account twice before - posted: ''My wife and I attend a funeral to pay our respects to an old friend, and some toxic Brit writes this f**king trash.

''My wife DID NOT use her phone, in any capacity, at our friend's funeral.''

Hilaria - who is currently seven months pregnant with a baby girl - took to her Twitter account to brand the journalist in question as a bully and slammed his comments as ''shameful.''

She posted: ''FYI I don't believe in bringing phones into a funeral and I never did and I never would.

''Here is some info... When someone tweets something at a certain time, and you retweet it later, it posts the TIME the first person tweeted.

''I hope that this reporter knows how much pain and drama he has caused from his poor journalism. Lying and bullying are shameful.''

The British newspaper is currently seeking clarification over when the yoga instructor posted the tweets.
