Alec Baldwin spoke out to defend his wife, Hilaria Baldwin, after she was accused of faking her Spanish accent. In an Instagram video, the 30 Rock actor took aim at people criticizing his wife.
“We live in a world now where we’re hidden behind the anonymity of social media. People feel that they can say anything.They probably would like to do anything if they weren’t at risk of getting caught and going to prison,” Alec Baldwin said on the video.
“Because they can’t do that, because that involves real commitment to do something, to express those feelings, they say things, no profile picture very often, sometimes yes, no identifying features there, hidden behind the anonymity of social media, they want to just shoot it all over you and spray it all over you, their venom and their hate”, he added.
“You have to consider the source,” the Saturday Night Live actor, Alec Baldwin, 62, continued. “There’s things that have been said lately about people that I love, that I care about deeply, which are ridiculous”.
Hilaria Baldwin, 36, became a trending topic on Twitter after several users claimed in a thread that she is pretending to have a Spanish accent. Videos posted showed the yoga instructor speaking with a Spanish accent and, in one instance, forgetting the English word for cucumber. But in later videos, she didn’t have the same accent.
