HILARIA BALDWIN IS CRITICIZED FOR HER ‘OFFENSIVE’ ACCENT: Hilaria Baldwin confronted paparazzi on Friday (January 20th), after it was revealed that her husband, Alec Baldwin, would be charged for involuntary manslaughter for the fatal Rust shooting. While wearing a sweatshirt that read, “EMPATHY,” Hilaria told the paparazzi, “I’m going to tell you what I’m going to say, you’re not going to ask me questions. I want you guys to realize we have seven kids, and you being here to escort them to school and to be there when they come home is not good.” As the video made its way around social media, Twitter users criticized Hilaria for speaking with a Spanish accent. “It’s beyond offensive at this point that she continues with this Spanish accent,” one person wrote. Another commented, “I saw people feeling badly for her being stalked by paps, and of course that’s valid, but the AAAAAACCENT my GOD.” In 2021, Hilaria apologized for not being “more clear” about her heritage in an Instagram post. “My parents raised my brother and me with two cultures, American and Spanish, and I feel a true sense of belonging to both. The way I’ve spoken about myself and my deep connection to two cultures could have been better explained – I should have been more clear and I’m sorry,” she wrote.
