A video of Alec Baldwin being harassed by a reporter has gone viral.

Jon Levine of the New York Post shared a clip of him running into the actor in the city's Upper East Side with his wife Hilaria Baldwin.

"NEW ... I ran into Alec Baldwin on the Upper East Side," Levine captions his video, which shows the couple entering a private home as the journalist approaches them to ask about the Rust shooting.

"Wait Mr. Baldwin, I have to ask you, what bring you to New York City?" Levine asks as Hilaria Baldwin records him and tells him: "I asked you to leave" and "I asked you to go away."

Levine continues to ask Alec Baldwin why he is at this residence until the actor turns around and berates him for approaching him at a private home.

The couple go inside as Levine shouts: "Did you really not pull the trigger?"

The clip is racking up thousands of views on Twitter and has amassed almost 700,000 at the time of publishing.

The interaction comes just days after Alec Baldwin gave a tell-all interview to ABC News about the tragic incident on the set of the film Rust that killed cinematographer Halyna Hutchins.

In the interview, Baldwin told George Stephanopoulos that he didn't pull the trigger—in comments that have been disputed by certain experts.

"The trigger wasn't pulled. I didn't pull the trigger. I would never point a gun at someone and pull the trigger on them, never," Baldwin said in the interview.

"So you never pulled the trigger?" Stephanopoulos reiterated.

"No no no, I would never point a gun at anybody and pull the trigger, never," Baldwin responded. "That was the training I had: You don't point a gun at somebody and pull the trigger."

The dramatic nature of the interview has also seen the 63-year-old accused of "acting."

Days after the interview, Baldwin deleted his Twitter account with his wife's profile also gone from the platform.

On Saturday, Hilaria Baldwin shared a length post on Instagram in support of her husband, where she spoke of his "unimaginable pain."

"I was afraid for you to open up because I've seen your spirit crushed, your mental health shattered, your soul in unimaginable pain. Sometimes I wonder how much one body, one mind can take. I don't want to lose you," she wrote in part.
