Alec Baldwin Goes Off Twitter As Wife Finds Herself Engulfed In A Scandal

"Not much of a party, Goodbye for now," he said.

As the internet tries to figure out the truth about Hilaria Baldwin's heritage, Alec Baldwin has announced that he will be taking a break from Twitter. His announcement reads, “Twitter is like a party where everybody is screaming. Not much of a party,” the Saturday Night Live star, 62, tweeted on Monday, January 18. “Goodbye for now.”



 

This is not the first time Alec had decided to go off Twitter. Back in December, Baldwin had gone off the platform during the same scandal after saying, “Flying away for a bit,” only to return with 29 posts after. Page 6, in an article, mentions how "the notorious bloviator" has a track record of repeatedly quitting the site. sometimes even deleting his account every time he landed in trouble.



 

This decision comes a month after Hilaria, 37, was 'called out' for lying about her Spanish heritage and faking her accent for years. A claim she has denied. “I was born in Boston and grew up spending time with my family between Massachusetts and Spain. My parents and sibling live in Spain and I chose to live here, in the USA,” she clarified on Instagram. “We celebrate both cultures in our home — Alec and I are raising our children bilingual, just as I was raised. This is very important to me. I understand that my story is a little different, but it is mine, and I’m very proud of it," she added. 



 

Hilaria went on to explain how she was in fact insecure about her tendency to mix English and Spanish on days when she speaks one more than the other. The controversy did make her vow to sign off Instagram for a long time but she was back on the platform hardly three hours later, prepared to shut down cultural appropriation allegations, The US magazine reported.  



 

“Who is to say what you’re allowed to absorb and not absorb growing up? This has been a part of my whole life,” she said while explaining her love for Spanish culture. “And I can’t make it go away just because some people don’t understand it.” Alec, on the other hand, released a video on Instagram, telling his followers that people were being ridiculous for blaming his wife in such a manner.  “We live in a world now where we’re hidden behind the anonymity of social media,” he said. “People feel that they can say anything," he added.
