Now that Alec Baldwin has officially been charged with involuntary manslaughter for his involvement in the Rust shooting, the Baldwin family is on high alert. Expect less desperate pleas for followers and more Instagram screeds decrying a corrupt justice system or Spanglish posts requesting empathy (it should actually be sympathy but let’s not split pelos). Speaking of foreign languages, with no babies on the horizon or legal charges to pull the attention towards her, Hilaria Baldwin thought it was a good time to whip out her authentic Spanish accento in front of the paps. That will surely ingratiate her and Alec to the public!
Just a few days ago, Alec and the Rust armorer Hannah Gutierrez-Reed were each charged with two counts of involuntary manslaughter for the 2021 shooting death of cinematographer Halyna Hutchins. Director Joel Souza was also shot but survived his injuries. Alec and Hannah will not face any charges for Joel’s injuries. Obviously, the Baldwins are unhappy with the result and are set to fight the charges. In the meantime, the couple is dodging the cameras and looking for some peace in order to prepare their case. Well, this would be the case if we weren’t talking about the Baldwins. Hilaria held one of her famous press conferences in her first second language all while holding a baby. Now that’s a multitasking girl-jefe! via NY Post:-
On Friday, she told reporters she would speak to them in the wake of the news that Alec will be charged with involuntary manslaughter in the 2021 shooting death of “Rust” cinematographer Halyna Hutchins.
“On a human level, you guys know I’m not going to say anything to you. You know that. So please leave my family in peace and let this all play out. OK?” Hilaria, with her newborn strapped to her chest, told the gathered journalists.
As she then told journalists to “go home,” Alec snuck out and was later spotted smiling as he tried to hide his face while entering the Film Center Building on Ninth Avenue.
Here’s that entire mess:
Dios mio! Hilaria is…how do you say angry in Hilaria’s native tongue? Oh yes, angry. Upon hearing that she whipped out her “only for special occasions” accent again, commenters made it their public duty to drag Hilaria.
Hilaria was later blasted online for trotting out the slight Spanish accent she sometimes employs during her bait-and-switch with the press. In 2020, her true heritage was revealed as Hillary Thomas from Massachusetts — and not the Spanish native as her husband once claimed.
“She sounds so, how you say, authentic,” one snarked, while another mused, “It will never stop being funny that a white girl from Boston pretends that she is Spanish.”
“This is one of the longest-running LARPing characters in history,” another tweet said, referring to live-action role-playing games in which players dress up with props and act out roles.
Damn, people are more inclined to believe Austin Butler’s permanent Elvis voice than Hilaria’s Spanish-by-way-of-Boston accent. It’s no wonder Ireland Baldwin wants nothing to do with her relatives. If I had to be subjected to this level of delusion from my family, I’d change my name, pretend I was from another country, and tell everyone I don’t know these people!
