As actor Alec Baldwin’s legal troubles mount regarding his role in the on-set death of cinematographer Halyna Hutchins, his social media activity raised more than eyebrows after a post featuring his wife and son was considered at the least “tone deaf” but, more broadly, “creepy” and “disgusting.”
Last week, Sante Fe, New Mexico prosecutors announced Baldwin and armorer Hannah Gutierrez Reed were being charged with involuntary manslaughter after she provided the actor with the loaded gun he fired on the set of “Rust,” ultimately killing Hutchins. Even if he weren’t facing a potential minimum sentence of five years should he be convicted, the sexual innuendo in Baldwin’s first post on Instagram following the charge was viewed as wildly inappropriate.
