Alec and Hilaria Baldwin Delete Twitter Accounts After Emotional 'Rust' Interview




 

Alec Baldwin has deleted his Twitter account, just a few days after he conducted his first in-studio interview about the fatal shooting on set of his movie "Rust." His wife Hilaria Baldwin followed suit and deleted hers as well.

The @alecbaldwin Twitter account was first noticed missing late Sunday night. That was the same account Baldwin used to release his first official statement regarding the accidental "Rust" shooting that killed cinematographer Halyna Hutchins and injured director Joel Souza

By Monday morning, Hilaria Baldwin's Twitter account @hilariabaldwin was also deleted, as was the account for the Hilaria and Alec Baldwin Foundation @ABFalecbaldwin. Only one verified Twitter account remains for Alec Baldwin, @AlecBaldwln____, though it says in the bio that it's a "social media phantom limb" and it hasn't ever mentioned the "Rust" tragedy. The last time the account tweeted was on Oct. 19, just two days before the accidental shooting, and before that on June 12, so it appears to be inactive as of now.

Both verified Instagram accounts for Alec and Hilaria Baldwin remain online and are actively posting as recently as Sunday.

The Twitter accounts being deleted comes just a few days after Baldwin appeared on ABC with George Stephanopolous to talk about the "Rust" tragedy for the first time on-air in a studio. The actor broke down in tears multiple times as he answered questions about why he pointed a gun at Hutchins, though he denied pulling the trigger.

"I let go of the hammer of the gun, and the gun goes off," he said.

Baldwin has been sued twice, by the film's gaffer and the script supervisor, but he said in the interview that he think it's unlikely he'll be charged criminally.
