Alec Baldwin has disabled his social media accounts, including Twitter, after being exposed for lying about not pulling the trigger.
Alec Baldwin goes dark on social media after being exposed lying: The most famous, but least liked Baldwin brother, is in hiding after a weapons expert debunked his claim that the gun fired without him pulling the trigger. This new revelation is very damaging to his trial for shooting and killing his cinematographer.
Generally, it is in a defendant’s best interest to maintain a low profile and avoid interviews prior to a life-changing defence trial. Alec Baldwin, on the other hand, felt it was prudent to conduct some damage control and agreed to an interview with ABC in which he boldly claimed that he did not pull the trigger that tragic day on the set of his now-cancelled film Rust.
“I would never point a gun at someone on set and pull the trigger,” Alec Baldwin alleged. “I didn’t pull the trigger. I let go of the hammer of the gun, and the gun goes off,” he said.
The interviewer was unconvinced by the actor’s crocodile tears and perplexed as to why he had the gun at all, given that the scene did not require it.
Furthermore, despite claiming that he does not care if his career is over after shooting and killing his cinematographer, his actions are currently contradicting his sentiments, and that is made all the clearer by denying any responsibility for the death of Halyna Hutchins.
Baldwin has already been sued twice, by the film’s gaffer and the script supervisor, and although he remains confident that he will not face any charges, his ABC interview may the the smoking gun Halyna Hutchins’ husband needs to send the 63-year-old actor to prison.
A weapons expert conclusively determined that Alec Baldwin willingly lied in his interview. “A gun cannot fire a bullet without the trigger being pulled. The hammer needs to be fully cocked, you can’t fire a bullet by pulling the hammer back a little and then letting go of it,” she stated.
The weapon expert demonstrates in the video that you must absolutely pull the hammer all the way back to cock the gun in order for it to unlock the trigger and generate enough momentum to fire.
Both fans and critics were absolutely appalled with Alec Baldwin interviews.
“Accidents happen, and this could have been a tragic accident, but the fact that he has made this about him and his feelings, and even denies responsibility for shooting and killing Halyna, is revolting. I’m finished with this guy “As one former fan put it.
Another wrote: “If he didn’t care about his career he would have accepted responsibility and truly apologised to the family. He knows this is going to court and he just dug his own grave.”
Shortly after the weapons experts video went viral and completely debunked Alec Baldwin’s statement, both he and his wife Hilaria deleted/disabled their Twitter accounts. Alec Baldwin’s and Hilaria Baldwin’s verified Instagram accounts remain active — however — they have not posted anything since Sunday.
