    Alec Baldwin and not-Spanish wife’s sickening act for sympathy

    How you say in English … Just shut up and go away?
    After parading around Vermont all weekend, staging a bizarre, impromptu roadside press conference and then posting happy-family Halloween portraits on Instagram, Alec Baldwin and his insufferable fraud of a wife eee-LAR-ia have lost any public sympathy they once had.


    Boom. Gone. All in about a week.
    “Parenting through this has been an intense experience, to say the least,” Hilaria posted on Halloween night.
    Really? Hilaria may want to talk to Halyna Hutchins’ widower about what it’s been like parenting their young son “through this intense experience,” his mother shot to deathon a movie set.
    But no: Feel sorry for the Baldwins, won’t you?
    “Halloween,” she wrote. “From the Baldwinitos.”
    This is really sick, on so many levels. Those kids still aren’t Spanish, yet Hillary from Boston keeps pushing that lie. Nor can she stay off Instagram, no matter how bad it makes her and her husband look — to say nothing of the legal and financial jeopardy her husband is in, a husband who may find it exceptionally hard to ever get insured on a film set again. You know, get work and make money.
    The last photo of Halyna Hutchins on the set of “Rust” taken by Serge Svetnoy before she was killed by a live round from a prop gun. FacebookBut no, the Rachel Dolezal of the Hamptons is back at it, asking for public sympathy with a soupçon of envy: Her husband may have accidentally killed a young wife and mother, but hey, covet their cozy autumnal New England lifestyle, won’t you?
    Hutchins was buried on Friday. Her son, Andros, is only 9 years old. The UK Sun reported that the child was unable to speak for two days after his mother’s death. “Andros was incredibly close to his mother,” Halyna’s father told the Sun. “This tragedy has wrecked a beautiful, perfect family. Everyone who knows them is destroyed by sorrow.”

What agony the coming holidays will be for him and his father?
    Yet the Baldwins, in all their malignant narcissism, would have us keep our eyes on their particular freak show, one rife with bad acting, ill-advised activity and Alec’s strange aura of imperviousness.
    You get the sense that Baldwin’s pretty sure he won’t be criminally charged and that all this overacting — how many photos were taken of Alec this weekend with his head in his hands after he was caught shopping at Ralph Lauren, or going on a coffee run, or sitting at a bar in Vermont, in a restaurant he and Hilaria bought out, right in front of a large window so the paparazzi could get their unobstructed shots? — is just to stave off a civil lawsuit.
    Cinematographer Halyna Hutchins was killed by a live round when Alec Baldwin fired a prop gun while rehearsing for a scene. SWEN STUDIOS/Handout via REUTERSGoing by public outrage over these antics, I know I’m not alone in hoping Hutchins’ husband goes after Baldwin for everything he’s got.
    Consider Alec’s roadside interview two days ago, in which he was sure to stress that Hutchins was “my friend” and that this was “a very, very well-oiled crew” who couldn’t have foreseen this “one in a trillion” tragedy — all while Hilaria weirdly kept inserting herself into this interview, seeking the camera frame while glowering self-righteously at the press, her husband admonishing her in clipped, haughty tones to back off and stay out of it.
    Then Baldwin went right back to turning on the charm and sadness and reflexive Hollywood hypocrisy.
    Hilaria and Alec Baldwin dine in Manchester following the death of Halyna Hutchins. MEGA“I do know that an ongoing effort to limit the use of firearms on film sets is something I’m extremely interested in,” he declared, as if he were campaigning for office and not the subject of an active investigation. “I’m not an expert in this field.”
    Hey, by the way, Alec — doesn’t matter. As experts in on-set firearms safety told The Post last week, the buck stops with Baldwin. As producer, he was responsible for safety on set.
    With each passing day, we learn more about the utter incompetence and recklessness that seemed endemic to this production — three accidental gun discharges, a crew member shot in the foot, live ammunition on set, union crew walking off over safety concerns the very morning Hutchins was shot, an inexperienced young armorer who had no idea what she was doing, an assistant director with various complaints about his inability to keep sets safe — really, how could this not have happened?
    Again, as firearms expert Steve Wolf told The Post last week: “If that scene required [Baldwin] to put the gun to his head and pull the trigger, I’m sure he would have taken a look inside the gun. Wouldn’t you?”
    Less than two weeks later, we’re watching Baldwin destroy what’s left of his career and reputation in the public square, aided and abetted by his equally terrible wife. Couldn’t happen to two more deserving people.

    holy fuckballs they really didn't hold back on eelaria. and yeah, her tacky ass definitely shouldn't be instagramming through this but hiding out is probably the last thing they should be doing because it would make alec look guilty or like he's trying to avoid a lawsuit. that article is nasty and i think baldwin was right to speak out if he felt he needed to.

    What's wrong with the NYP?
    Whatever went wrong on that set is really bad, but Baldwin shooting Hayna Hutchins was just a horrible accident that could have happened on every set that uses real weapons.

    That's just a terrible thing to say. Slaughter this idiots for whatever other reason, but not for that tragedy. So far, Alec Baldwin has handled it much better than I'd expected.

    Yeah, that article was really harsh. I may find Hilaria super annoying and fake, but she's not causing any real harm other than giving her kids dumb names.

    What happened to Halyna was a tragedy and the mistake of several people on set.

    That’s the whole point, there should *never* have been live ammo on set. Never never never.

    The NY Post article is not surprising. The paper is very right leaning/Trump supporting and in that world, what happened is some kind of karmic payback for Baldwin’s SNL Trump impersonations. That’s not to say points made are unfair (particularly the one about him likely checking if the rehearsal called for him to hold the gun to his head but after hearing “cold gun” from the asst director, he may have done just that) and that Baldwin hasn’t been a total jackass in the past about a number of things, but they have a pro-Trump motivation.

    Well, that video was gross. The way hilary kept buzzing around like a pesky fly and trying to insert herself, and "Her name was Heleeena, Heleena, how dare you not know that..."

    Hmmm...not saying I agree with the NYP and also not saying Alec should hide out, but I don't think it would hurt if they lay low for a bit and not post happy Halloween pics of their kids, just out of respect. It's just not a good look, regardless. Yeah, their life goes on but another family's doesn't, so show a little respect even if this disrupts poor Hilaria's famewhore wishes to keep herself and her kids in the spotlight.

    I read they went to Vermont to “hide out” but then are giving road-side interviews.

    Also, AB commented on what the dead woman’s family are feeling & I felt that was an invasion of their privacy, maybe it’s just me but it rubbed me the wrong way

    Baldwin said he is in "constant contact" with Ms Hutchins' husband and son, who he said are "mortified"."The guy is overwhelmed with grief. There are incidental accidents on film sets from time to time but nothing like this," Baldwin said.

    "This is a one in a trillion event. He is in shock, he has a nine-year-old son. We are in constant contact with him 'cause we are very worried about him and his family.
    "We are eagerly waiting for the sheriff's department to tell us what their investigation has yielded."

    I can't find the video. Did they remove it? Even a google search doesn't find it.

    I thought he was handling it quite alright, but the way she was acting? And he had to stop her talking, that was hilaarious.
