Alec Baldwin’s daughter has clapped back at Candace Owens after she posted a series of tweets slamming the actor…
As we know, Candace Owens has posted several tweets surrounding the accedental shooting of Halyna Hutchens…
And Alec Baldwin’s daughter isn’t going to sit by idly and let her voice her unsolicited opinions.
As we all know, Alec Baldwin, has been involved in a fatal accident.
The sixty-three-year-old was using a gun prop on the set of the American Western film, Rust, when he fired a round of blanks that killed cinematographer, Halyna Hutchins, as well as wounded the director of the film, Joel Souza.
Souza was immediately rushed to hospital where he recieved treatment for his injuries.
He was taken to Christus St Vincent Regional Medical Center for further examinations.
Hutchins was taken to the University of New Mexico Hospital, but died when she got there.
The forty-two-year-old was transported to the location via helicopter but before she could undergo life-saving treatment, she succumbed to her injuries.
Rust was being filmed at the Bonanza Creek ranch just outside of Santa Fe when the incident occured on Thursday.
Santa Fe police deputies were called to the scene after Baldwin had misfired the prop during a scene.
Later on, in a statement, the authorities confirmed the details.
As per the Independent, the Santa Fe County Sheriff’s office said that the pair were shot when a prop firearm was discharged by Baldwin, who is the producer and actor for the new film, which, ironically, is about an accidental killing.
A Santa Fe sheriff spokesman also confirmed in a statement to AFP news, that Baldwin had willingly spoken to detectives.
“He came in voluntarily and he left the building after he finished his interviews,” the spokesman said.
Photos taken after he had spoken to authorities showed him visibly distraught.
Before the incident, Baldwin himself had posted to his Instagram in a now-removed post, emphasizing how “exhausting” the process has been.
Showing a snapshot of himself dressed in a Western outfit, he captioned the photo: “Back to in person at the office. Blimey…it’s exhausting.”
It has been taken down now.
So far, no charges have been filed and filming has been postponed.
But people have been having mixed opinions on the issue.
Some have suggested that Baldwin be charged with manslaughter.
“Hopefully Alec Baldwin gets manslaughter at the very least. But knowing the Democrats and their penchant for protecting criminals, I wouldn’t be surprised if he gets off with 10 hours of community service…
If that,” film producer, Errol Webber wrote.
However, Webber was heavily slammed in his comment section for making things “political.”
Others have added that the person in charge of handling props should take the fall…
However, most people are focussed on the victims of the tragic incident as tributes have been pouring in for Halyna Hutchins, who lost her life as an outcome.
Before her untimely death, she even posted a video taken on the set of the movie.
The forty-two-year-old was riding horses on her day off. Alongside the clip, she added the caption: “One of the perks of shooting a western is you get to ride horses on your day off:)”
While previously there were happy comments related to the video, they have now been taken over by sad tributes.
Fellow actors, and industry professionals, as well as fans, have been leaving messages for the late director.
American film producer, James Cullen Bressack wrote: “I will miss you my friend…. This is devastating.”
Alec Baldwin has also broken his silence on the matter.
In a statement, he told people that he is “fully co-operating with the police.”
His full statement reads: “There are no words to convey my shock and sadness regarding the tragic accident that took the life of Halyna Hutchins, a wife, mother, and deeply admired colleague of ours. I’m fully cooperating with the police investigation to address how this tragedy occurred and I am in touch with her husband, offering my support to him and his family. My heart is broken for her husband, their son, and all who knew and loved Halyna.”
Now, the internet is clearly very divided over who should be charged with the death of Hutchins…
But right-wing talk show host, Candace Owens, is pretty set in stone with who she thinks should take the blame for the accidental live shot.
In a series of tweets Owens went on to say Baldwin’s incident is a “poetic justice,” after all the times he has called out Trump…
Owens tweeted: “Alec Baldwin spent 4 years dedicated to painting Donald Trump and his supporters as evil murderers.
“What has happened to Alec would be an example of poetic justice if it weren’t for the actual innocent people that were murdered by him. Pray for their families. So sad.”
And if that wasn’t insane enough, she went on to dig herself a hole…
Adding: “Will correct that last tweet to say Alec Baldwin *killed* someone- not murdered someone, as murder carries a different legal definition.”
She then went on to say: “Literally not one single thing that Alec Baldwin has said about Donald Trump and his supporters is going to age well.”
She does have a way of making everything about politics, doesn’t she? Even the tragic death of a young woman.
Many jumped on her tweet, rightfully bashing her for trying to twist Hutchin’s tragic death into something political…
Owens has since deleted her first comment about Baldwin, but luckily, Twitter has receipts.
And it seems as though Alec Baldwin’s daughter has seen them all.
She has hit back at Owens’ “disgusting” attack…
As per The Daily Mail, Ireland Baldwin wrote on her Instagram story: “You are the most disgusting, hateful, cancerous human being I’ve ever come across.”
“Regardless of your foul opinions most of the time, the fact that you would disrespect the life of a woman who was accidentally and tragically killed…Shame on you.”
Later, the star added…
“Be a republican. Be unvaccinated. I don’t give a f**k. There are plenty of liberal ones that I support as well… But one f***ing thing I find myself doing is being RESPECTFUL.”
“But we aren’t debating masks and vaccines and abortion and trans rigthts here…”
“A woman’s life was lost. Your tweets, lack of information, and ignorance are hurting people,” she went on.
“You and that scumbag @jackmposobiec don’t have a clue what you’re even talking about and you usually never do.” Ireland concluded: “I respect people’s opinions… but if you support these absolute clowns… please don’t follow me anymore. I beg.”
She also shared that she would be taking an “Instagram break…”
As after reading Owens’ comments, she is “ashamed to breathe the same air as this woman.”
However, after multiple posts slamming Owens, Ireland announced that Owens had been in contact…
Later posting a screenshot of a message sent to Owens thanking her “for taking the time to have a real conversation.”
