Alec Baldwin Responds To Commenters After Latest Instagram Post Gets Slammed

Just hours after Alec Baldwin made his return to Instagram, people were shocked by the nature of his first post. The post showed a picture of his wife Hilaria and their son, Leo.

Baldwin jokingly wrote in the caption, “The old ‘let me give you a back rub’ ploy.” However, some commenters criticized Baldwin for sexualizing the photo, which was meant to be innocent and sweet. One user wrote, “That’s a pretty weird comment to make on a photo of your son and his mother ????.” Another commented, “This caption is disgusting.” Baldwin later added, “Potato chips to follow,” in the comments of the post.

He explained that he made the adjustment because of the negative comments he received from internet trolls. Baldwin’s return to Instagram comes shortly after the tragic shooting incident on the set of his film Rust, which resulted in the death of Halyna Hutchins. Baldwin and the film’s weapons handler, Hannah Gutierrez Reed, are both facing charges of involuntary manslaughter. According to reports, the film’s assistant director, David Halls, has already pleaded guilty to charges related to the incident. Halls had handed Baldwin the gun and deemed it safe before the accident occurred.

The investigation into the incident revealed that the gun was functional and could only fire if the trigger was pulled. Initially, it was believed that the gun was “cold” and did not contain live rounds. Despite the tragedy, it has been confirmed that filming for Rust will continue. The movie’s producer, Matthew Hutchins, the husband of Halyna Hutchins, will also become an executive producer of the film.

Baldwin has not yet issued a statement regarding the criminal charges against him. His wife, Hilaria, has asked the paparazzi to leave their family alone during this difficult time.
