Actor Alec Baldwin is facing increasing scrutiny as he weathers fallout from his shooting of two people on the set of a film he was producing. Baldwin killed a female cinematographer and injured a director when he apparently opened fire on the set of his Western movie production “Rust.” Baldwin’s defenders are spinning the incident as an accident. But conservatives and fair-minded observers everywhere are asking questions about what actually happened. Now, things are getting worse for the leftist thespian.
President Donald Trump has now questioned “nut job” Baldwin’s mental state and wondered whether Baldwin shot cinematographer Halyna Hutchins and director Joel Souza intentionally. Baldwin’s softball interview with George Stephanopoulos on ABC did not come off too positively for him, and it’s public knowledge that a major labor dispute was happening on Baldwin’s set due to bad gun safety protocols among other issues. Baldwin, who previously starred in a movie called “An Imperfect Murder,” claims that he did not pull the trigger of the weapon that shot his two victims but rather he let go of the hammer and the gun fired. But script supervisor Mamie Mitchell claims in her lawsuit against Baldwin that “Alec Baldwin intentionally, without just cause or excuse, cocked and fired and loaded gun even though the upcoming scene to be filmed did not call for the cocking and firing of a firearm.”
Twitter users flooded the zone Thursday with anti-Alec Baldwin tweets following ex-cop Kim Potter’s manslaughter conviction for the deadly Daunte Wright shooting in Minnesota, which was evidently an accidental shooting. Twitter users could not resist pointing out that Potter is a convict now while Alec Baldwin is out free, roaming around in the aftermath of his killing of Halyna Hutchins.
Meanwhile, Alec Baldwin shilled for masks and Coronavirus booster injections in a bizarre video appeal. Will Alec Baldwin face any charges for shooting Hutchins and director Joel Souza?
