Alec Baldwin – Alec Baldwin’s Daughter Rips Candace Owens for “Rust” ResponseTheWrap

Alec Baldwin’s daughter Ireland didn’t pull any punches while firing back at Candace Owens on Monday, after Owens called last week’s shooting accident on the set of “Rust” a form of “poetic justice.”

“You are the most disgusting, hateful, cancerous human being I’ve ever come across,” Baldwin wrote Monday on her Instagram Story. “Regardless of your foul opinions most of the time, the fact that you would disrespect the life of a woman who was accidentally and tragically killed….Shame on you.”

“I am ashamed to breath the same air as this woman,” Baldwin added in the next slide.

In a now-deleted tweet the day after the “Rust” tragedy, Owens wrote, “Alec Baldwin spent four years dedicated to painting Donald Trump and his supporters as evil murderers. What has happened to Alec would be an example of poetic justice if it weren’t for the actual innocent people that were murdered by him. Pray for their families. So sad.”

In a follow-up tweet, Owens noted, “Will correct that last tweet to say Alec Baldwin *killed* someone — not murdered someone, as murder carries a different legal definition.”

Ireland Baldwin capped off her criticism of Owens by saying, “Your tweets, lack of information, and ignorance are hurting people.”

That said, the two women did apparently talk things out — Baldwin posted a screenshot of a series of direct messages between her and Owens, with Baldwin thanking the conservative pundit for “taking the time to have a real conversation.”

Last Thursday, cinematographer Halyna Hutchins was killed and director Joel Souza injured on the set of the Alec Baldwin-starring film “Rust,” after the actor fired a prop gun he believed to be a “cold gun.” A “cold gun” would indicate that there was no live ammunition to be fired.

That same gun was used by crew members earlier Thursday morning for live-ammunition target practice, an individual with knowledge of the set told TheWrap. A number of crew members had taken prop guns from the New Mexico set of the indie Western — including the gun that killed Hutchins — to go “plinking,” a hobby in which people shoot at beer cans with live ammunition to pass the time, the insider said.

Alec Baldwin Was Told Gun in Deadly Shooting on Set Was Safe, Officials Claim

The star was told a pistol being used as a prop was safe before he shot it on the set of “Rust,” killing the film’s cinematographer and wounding its director, police officials said.

On a ranch in northern New Mexico, where the cottonwoods and the dusty foothills have created the backdrop of Westerns since the 1950s, Alec Baldwin was shooting a new motion picture on Thursday afternoon when his character, an outlaw, needed a gun.

An assistant director picked up one of three prop guns that the film’s armorer had set up outside on a gray cart, handed it to Mr. Baldwin, and, according to an affidavit signed by Detective Joel Cano of the Santa Fe County sheriff’s office, yelled “Cold Gun!”– which was meant to specify that the gun did not have any live rounds in it.

When Mr. Baldwin shot the gun, police officials said, it hit and killed the film’s cinematographer and wounded its director– and raised new concerns about firearms safety on film sets.

The assistant director “did not know live rounds were in the prop-gun” when he gave it to Mr. Baldwin, according to the affidavit, which was made as part of a search warrant application. The affidavit did not identify what type of ammunition the gun had been loaded with.

The assistant director on the set of “Rust” where Alec Baldwin fired a prop gun that killed cinematographer Halyna Hutchins had previously allowed an unsafe working setting on productions, according to a prop maker who worked with him.

Dave Halls “at first he seemed like an older, affable first [assistant director] with the usual run of idiosyncrasies, but that facade soon disappeared,” according to prop maker Maggie Goll, who said she was called to work on Hulu’s “Into the Dark” anthology series in February 2019.

” He did not maintain a safe working environment,” Goll said in a detailed statement to NBC News. “Sets were almost always allowed to become progressively claustrophobic, no well established fire lanes, exits blocked … safety meetings were nonexistent.”

According to court records, Halls handed the prop gun to Baldwin just before the fatal shooting at the Bonanza Ranch in New Mexico, signaling inaccurately that the weapon did not have live shots by yelling “cold gun.”

The gun was just one of three that the film’s armorer, Hannah Gutierrez, had set on a cart outside the wooden structure where a scene was being acted, according to the records. Assistant director Dave Halls grabbed the gun from the cart and brought it inside to Baldwin, unaware that it was loaded with live rounds, a detective wrote in the search warrant application.

It was unclear the number of rounds were actually fired. Gutierrez removed a shell casing from the gun after the shooting, and she turned the weapon over to authorities when they showed up, the court records say.

Halls did not instantly return phone and email messages seeking comment. The Associated Press was not able to get in touch with Gutierrez, and several communications sent off to production firms affiliated with the film were not instantly returned Friday.

The film’s script supervisor, Mamie Mitchell, said she was standing beside Hutchins when she was shot.

” I ran out and called 911 and said ‘Bring everybody, send everybody,'” Mitchell told The Associated Press. “This woman is gone at the beginning of her career. She was an extraordinary, rare, very rare woman.”

Mitchell stated she and some other crew members were participating in a private memorial service Friday night in Santa Fe.

Baldwin referred to the killing as a “tragic accident.”

A troubled Baldwin was photographed outside a hotel in Santa Fe, New Mexico, on Saturday embracing and speaking with Matt Hutchins, the husband of Halyna Hutchins, and their nine-year-old boy.

Alec Baldwin has been seen consoling the family of the cinematographer he mistakenly killed on the set of his movie, as even more reports emerged on Sunday of troubling practices during the filming of the Western “Rust”.

Baldwin’s stunt double inadvertently fired two rounds Saturday after being informed that the gun was “cold”– language for a weapon that doesn’t have any ammunition, including blanks– two crew members who observed the episode told the Los Angeles Times.
