After defending Woody Allen, Andrew Cuomo and his wife Hilaria, Alec Baldwin is now extending his support to Chrissy Teigen.
Whether Baldwin’s support is useful to Teigen remains to be seen, but it makes the supermodel the latest celebrity to receive the support of the famous vocal actor while facing public outcry and engaging in controversial behavior.” Cancel Culture”.
Baldwin, who has begun styling herself as a crusader against cancellation culture, recently garnered Teigen’s Instagram appreciation with her widely shared lament about being “sad” and “lost”. Because he was exposed as a cyberbully and coerced. “Cancel Club.”
More than offering sympathy, Baldwin proposed that the cookbook author and lifestyle influencer was the victim of a “hit job” and what almost sounds like an orchestrated plot, perpetuated by dark unnamed forces. The 63-year-old film and “30 Rock” actor promised to reveal more about this potential plot soon.
Baldwin wrote, “It was a hit work on you for some very specific reason (more on that later.).” He also suggested that singer John Legend’s wife keep fighting – “it’s over when you say it’s over” – and assured her that “a great number of people love and support you.” “
Perhaps the public anger directed at Baldwin Teigen sees parallels in what is happening to his wife, who is also a lifestyle influencer. Hilaria Baldwin, a mother of six, is facing ongoing allegations that she deliberately misled her followers into thinking she was a glamorous yoga teacher from Spain.
Twitter’s unofficial queen Teigen has been at the center of controversy since May. That’s when media personality Courtney Stodden said that 10 years ago, when Stodden was 16 and the Sports Illustrated model was trying to increase her fame by saying derogatory things on social media platforms and attacking other celebrities, she was Teigen Model 10 years ago. were the target of vicious messages. .
Stodden, who is binary and uses the they/them pronoun, said Teigen had effectively told him to kill himself. Since then, Teigen has lost out on brand partnerships and media opportunities. She also said that she feels like she can’t get up from her couch because she believes she can’t be on Twitter, regularly communicating with her 13 million followers.
Teigen has apologized several times, but she has been accused of doing so only for the benefit of her fans, and not to show genuine remorse for those she hurt. Crisis management experts said they need to stay away from social media for the time being and show more accountability instead of seeking sympathy. Last week, Stodden suggested to TMZ that Teigen was playing the victim and has yet to apologize personally.
Similarly, Hilaria Baldwin has also been accused of failing to take responsibility for carrying out her alleged “gift”. Hilaria Baldwin, who was born Hilary Hayward-Thomas and raised in Massachusetts, spent more than 10 years using a shifting Spanish accent and described herself as “Latina,” “Half-Spanish” or “Native Spanish.” speaker”. A variety of interviews and settings, from Spanish-language publications to the United Nations.
Among the consequences of Baldwin’s heritage scandal, he was accused of cultural appropriation by Latinx immigrants, who he says actually face serious prejudice because of his accent and background. She was listed by Atlantic magazine as one of America’s famous “identity fraudsters”, along with a white woman, Rachel Dolezal, who pretended she was black. Like Teigen, Hilaria Baldwin lost brand sponsorships to Instagram and media opportunities. She stopped taping episodes of her parenting podcast, “Mom Brain.”
Hilaria Baldwin initially blamed the media and then apologized, but only for not being “more candid” about her legacy. She fanned the flames of her still-running scandal two weeks ago when she claimed on Instagram that she was a “multi” with a “liquid” cultural identity. She came especially indignant when he suggested she had been misunderstood and unfairly persecuted. She compares their plight to those who are truly marginalized in society because of their culture, language, religion, sexual orientation and gender identity.
Meanwhile, questions have also arisen about how much Alec Baldwin knew, or was involved in, his wife’s alleged rift. The actor was present during his wife’s UN appearance when he allowed himself to be identified as “half-Spanish”. He was also featured in a 2013 David Letterman interview, stating that his wife was “from Spain” because she jokingly copied his Spanish accent.
Over the past few months, Alec Baldwin has been critical of his wife and intensified his declarations against “cancel culture”. In mid-May, the famed Tasty actor tweeted, “Cancellation culture is like wildfire in constant need of fuel.”
Baldwin’s tweet didn’t mention his wife or anyone else, which he falsely “canceled,” but some of Baldwin’s respondents assumed he was referring to his wife.
He said Hilaria Baldwin was facing “consequences” for her alleged gift. One person wrote: “Please don’t tell me you’re still defending your wife’s unforgivable actions. Get over yourself guys and accept that there are things called consequences for bad behavior.”
Baldwin may also be talking about his friend Woody Allen. Baldwin also posted a video in which he said “cancellation culture is out of control.” He posted the video around the time he faced backlash for defending Allen again, who was accused, but in 1992, in a criminal court for molesting his 7-year-old daughter, Dylan Farrow. was never found guilty. The allegation of molestation against the legendary film director was revisited in detail in an explosive four-part HBO documentary.
Baldwin said, “There are people who deserve to be punished for what they have done.” “But I think the cancellation culture is causing more problems than it solves. It’s like trapping, like a giant mile-long trap where you’re catching a lot of people, lots of people, deserve but some – more than a few – who don’t, where they don’t deserve it, their careers and their lives are destroyed.”
In his video, Baldwin also appeared to make reference to New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, who has been accused of sexual assault by five women and faced calls to resign.
Now Baldwin is defending Teigen, which prompted People to revisit the well-documented allegations against his wife.
One person called him “a clown” and another said that he must have been bored with his wife’s “many personalities”, so he feels the need to involve himself in the conversation about Teigen. Someone else wrote that Baldwin naturally believes Teigen is the victim of a “hit job” because she has no idea what it means to accept accountability for wrongdoing.
“Sir please,” wrote someone else. “Everything that was said about your wife is true! Her real name is Hilary Hayward Thomas and she was born and raised in Massachusetts… went on vacation to Spain. You have no idea what accountability is, so of course you think it’s a one-hit job. But who forced him to have a different personality?”
