Alec Baldwin slammed by fans over ‘weirdly sexual’ caption on post of wife and son
Alec Baldwin has been slammed by fans over his “weirdly sexual” caption on a post of his wife Hilaria and their son.
The actor was criticised by his followers as he shared his first post since he was charged with involuntary manslaughter in the death of Rust cinematographer Halyna Hutchins.
The snap sees one of the 64 year old’s younger sons placing his hands on mum Hilaria’s shoulders and looking at the camera.
Alec, who shares seven children with Hilaria, captioned the picture: “The old let me give you a back rub ploy…Potato chips to follow”.
Instagram users were quick to call the star out on the caption, with one writing in the comments section: “If I accidentally took the life of a parent, I certainly wouldn’t be posting pictures of my spouse and child.
"Then you make a sexual comment on such a moment? It’s not a good look. Find humility.”
A second added: "Bro what is wrong with you? You had to make it creepy AF with the caption?" while another called the star out for captioning the pic with a "sexually suggestive innuendo”.
A fourth wrote: “Does anyone else think this is creepy af with the caption? Pic is sweet. Caption makes it weird.”
Alec later took to the comments himself, explaining: "I adjusted the text. I guess because…you know…there is so much of that Reddit trash out there."
Halyna Hutchins, who was mum to son Andros with her husband Matthew, died in October 2021 after a prop gun held by Alec was discharged on the film set of Rust.
Director Joel Souza was also wounded in the shooting on the set near Santa Fe, Arizona.
The film’s armourer Hannah Gutierrez-Reed is also being charged with two counts of involuntary manslaughter over the death of Ms Hutchins on the set.
In light of the New Mexico District Attorney’s office confirming the criminal charges against Alec, Halyna’s family released a statement saying that “no one is above the law”.
Brian J. Panish, Founding Partner of Panish Shea Boyle Ravipudi LLP, said on their behalf: "We want to thank the Santa Fe Sheriff and the District Attorney for concluding their thorough investigation and determining that charges for involuntary manslaughter are warranted for the killing of Halyna Hutchins with conscious disregard for human life.
“Our independent investigation also supports charges are warranted. It is a comfort to the family that, in New Mexico, no one is above the law.
“We support the charges, will fully cooperate with this prosecution, and fervently hope the justice system works to protect the public and hold accountable those who break the law."
The decision to prosecute Alec over the death of Halyna “represents a terrible miscarriage of justice”, the actor’s lawyer has said.
Luke Nikas, of Quinn Emanuel, said: “This decision distorts Halyna Hutchins’ tragic death and represents a terrible miscarriage of justice.
“Mr Baldwin had no reason to believe there was a live bullet in the gun – or anywhere on the movie set.
“He relied on the professionals with whom he worked, who assured him the gun did not have live rounds. We will fight these charges, and we will win.”
