Alec Baldwin allegedly called a female restaurant server a "peasant" as she walked away from him at the PEN America Literary Gala in New York City. Daily Mail reports that Alec returned to the red carpet after the charges against him for shooting and killing cinematographer Halyna Hutchins were dropped.

Now the server says Baldwin allegedly called her a peasant and made her uncomfortable by his displaced anger. She recalled that Alec was "patronizing and very agitated" as she tried to do her job and deliver food to his table.

"I'm a sweep leader, which means I basically tell the waiters when to put down the plates, and we have to do it in a certain order," the server explained to Daily Mail. 'I was going to feed the head of the table, but that's who he was talking to, so I go up to him, and I say, "I'm sorry, sir, but we're going to have servers walking through the tables here in a minute."'

The server says Baldwin was visibly upset by the waitstaff serving the guests and delivering their dinner plates. He questioned the staff if "now is a good time to talk to his guests" in a condescending manner.

She didn't want a confrontation with the actor, so she tried to step aside and let him talk to his friends. She claimed he muttered that she was a peasant when she walked off to give him some space.

"Afterwards, many of my co-workers approached me and asked, "Do you know what he said while you were walking away?" I didn't catch it because I was focused on my work. Still, apparently, he was calling me a peasant [and] was clearly mad that I told him kindly, "Excuse me," the server explained.

She said she wasn't afraid of getting into trouble over the Baldwin incident with her boss because she was doing her job. She noted among Alec's guests was Colin Jest, who was polite and kind toward her and the rest of the staff.

In Touch Weekly reported that the incident unfolded when Baldwin stood up to chat with a friend a couple of minutes before the servers came to deliver the meals. A source who witnessed the incident said that Alec felt disrespected that the server would place dinner plates on the table when he was standing chatting with a friend.

The server said she wasn't offended by Baldwin's behavior. Still, several other servers were allegedly "visibly upset" by the actor's yelling and mean-spirited comments.
