The actor Alec Baldwin deleted his account from Twitter after giving his first interview since the fatal accident on the movie set ‘Rust’ last October 21. The account had over a million followers and was used by him and the Hilaria Foundation. His wife, Hilaria Baldwin, also deleted his profile.
The actor’s official Twitter account, @alecbaldwin, disappeared for good on Sunday night. It’s the same account Baldwin used to post his first official statement about the Rust accidental shooting, which killed cinematographer Halyna Hutchins and injured director Joel Souza.
This Monday morning, the Twitter account of Hilaria Baldwin (@hilariabaldwin) was also deleted, as was the account of The Hilaria and Alec Baldwin Foundation (@ABFalecbaldwin).
During the interview broadcast last Thursday, Baldwin, 63, claimed that he did not pull the trigger of the pistol that fired a live bullet, and also burst into tears several times while answering the questions.
For this unfortunate accident, Baldwin has been sued twice, by the director of the film and the supervisor of the script, but in the interview he said that he believes it is unlikely that he will be criminally charged.
He also expressed feeling devastated by the shooting. However, he said he does not feel responsible for the death of Hutchins, 42, after George Stephanopoulos asked whether he felt “guilty.”
