Hundreds of activists flooded Penn Station and Grand Central Station in Midtown Manhattan on Monday night in an anti-Israel demonstration with some breaking off to taunt an actor known for his advocacy of progressive causes as he was on his way to teach an acting class.

Alec Baldwin, star of TV’s “30 Rock,” which was filmed in New York City, received a flurry of verbal abuse from protesters while he was passing by a crowd.

The protesters said the actor, who parodied former president and now Republican frontrunner for the 2024 elections Donald Trump on “SNL,” had a “tanking” career and “no ****** shame.”

When asked to condemn Israel, Baldwin responded, “No, I support peace in Gaza,” to which he received more harassment in return.

“You ask stupid questions,” the actor said back, according to the Post. “Ask me a smart question, and I’ll answer your question.”

Police officers ended up escorting Baldwin away from the protesters as they chanted “ceasefire now.”
