Alec Baldwin‘s daughter has come to his defence after US political commentator Candace Owens criticised him on social media following the deadly shooting on the New Mexico set of his movie, Rust.
Ireland Baldwin was unimpressed by Owens’ tweet, in which she suggested the tragic incident that led to the death of cinematographer Halyna Hutchins was “poetic justice” for the way the 63-year-old actor had criticised Donald Trump during his time as US president.
“Alec Baldwin spent 4 years dedicated to painting Donald Trump and his supporters as evil murderers,” Owens wrote in a since-deleted tweet.
“What happened to Alec would be an example of poetic Justice if it weren’t for the actual innocent people that were murdered by him.”
Ireland, Baldwin’s s 26-year-old daughter with ex-wife Kim Basinger, swiftly responded to Owens on Instagram, and she did not mince her words.
“You are the most disgusting, hateful, cancerous human being I’ve ever come across,” Ireland wrote on Instagram Stories. “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.”
The model then sent a message to all her followers who don’t exercise tolerance and cultivate negativity.
“If you simply don’t RESPECT people… then unfollow me. It’s so simple,” she wrote in another Instagram Story. “Unfollow me if you don’t support woman’s rights. Unfollow me if you don’t support trans rights. LGBTQ rights as a whole. Human rights…
“But reeeeaaaalllyyy hit that unfollow button if you’re trying to defame my father and tweet such horrific statements about this tragic situation. It breaks my heart that people are so hatefully ignorant…”
