On Sunday, Alec Baldwin’s wife Hilaria was harshly criticized for insensitivity after posting a Halloween photo on Instagram of herself and her six children, writing, “’Parenting through this has been an intense experience, to say the least.”
“Today, we rallied to give them a holiday,” she continued. “Last min costumes … a little hodge-podge … but they were so happy and that warmed my mama heart.”
The photos showed the family in various Halloween costumes, including Alec dressed up in a “Where the Wild Things Are” costume and Hilaria in a spider-themed costume.
Amid many fans offering their support, criticism was directed at Hilaria for posting about her difficulty parenting in the wake of her husband firing the gun that took the life of cinematographer Halyna Hutchins, who left behind a nine-year-old son.
The criticism included statements such as “The Baldwin kids should absolutely enjoy Halloween. This year, though, #hilariabaldwin should have kept their festivities (and herself) off social media. Halyna’s son didn’t get to enjoy this holiday. Celebrate without posting, Hillary. It’s literally the least you could do.”
As Today reported, the family’s Halloween celebration “came on the day that the family of Hutchins held a private funeral for the 42-year-old wife and mother, who was killed on the New Mexico set of ‘Rust.’”
Alec Baldwin told reporters on Saturday, “It’s an active investigation in terms of a woman died, she was my friend. … We were a very, very well-oiled crew shooting a film together, and then this horrible event happened.”
“There are incidental accidents on film sets from time to time, but nothing like this,” he continued. “This is a one in a trillion episode. It’s a one in a trillion event. … But remember, how many bullets have been fired in films and TV shows in the last 75 years. This is America. How many bullets have gone off in movies and on TV sets before? How many, billions in the last 75 years? And nearly all of it without incident. So what has to happen now is, we have to realize that when it does go wrong and it’s this horrible, catastrophic thing, some new measures have to take place. Rubber guns, plastic guns, no live — no real armaments on set. That’s not for me to decide. It’s urgent that you understand I’m not an expert in this field, so whatever other people decide is the best way to go in terms of protecting people’s safety on film sets, I’m all in favor of and I will cooperate with that in any way that I can.”
