Apparently, even with the tragedy on the “Rust” set, Alec Baldwin isn’t quite done making a fool of himself…
Apparently, Alec Baldwin is really interested in changing the world, but he has one small problem: his social media account is private. If he really has nothing to hide, then why doesn’t he make his social media account public so that way everyone can see what he is saying behind the scenes and be able to join in on the conversation?
However, instead of doing that, Baldwin is sitting online behind his hidden social media account trying to shout out demands. This is pretty bad for someone who recently shot and killed someone, even by accident. Instead, of barking out demand on a “locked” social media account, wouldn’t it make more sense if he used his clout to make industry-wide changes in the entertainment industry in order to make sure that something like this never happens again?
But that’s beneath the narcissistic Alec Baldwin, now isn’t it?
Make no mistake about it, this isn’t about the woman that Alec killed by accident. Oh no. Not even close. This is all about him instead.
So what, pray tell, would all of the new demands be that Alec is insisting on?
Fox News reported that Alec Baldwin took to social media on Monday to share his idea to make film and TV sets that use firearms more safe — hire police officers.
Well, Fox News is reporting that Alec Baldwin is now taking to social media because he wants to share his idea on how to make film and TV sets more safe. His solution? It is…wait for it….hire police officers! Really?
This 63-year-old actor has been at the heart of the ongoing debate in Hollywood about using real guns during the production of film and TV projects after he and his employees went through an on-set accident where he shot “Rust” cinematographer Halyna Hutchins and left director Joel Souza wounded.
Naturally, investigators are looking into the causes of the deadly incident, and particularly just how live ammunition made its way onto the set in the first place. Of course, there are many placing the blame on Baldwin along with a handful of other people who had handled this particular firearm before the accidental shooting occurred.
Last Monday, Baldwin issued a rare social media post since the tragedy went down to share his beliefs that having a police presence at the scene (paid for by the studios or networks of course) would lead to fewer of these gun-related mishaps.
“Every film/TV set that uses guns, fake or otherwise, should have a police officer on set, hired by the production, to specifically monitor weapons safety,” he wrote Monday.
So….since Alec is doing his level best to be the voice of reason here, then yet again one has to wonder why he has his account locked. Could it be that he has it this way so that people won’t be able to remind him that this “police officer on the set” brainstorm of his is already the policy on all film sets in New York City?
Considering that Alec has already been an actor for eons, is it possible that he already knew this and yet he is just saying SOMETHING to try to placate people?
Again, folks, this was Alec Baldwin’s “set” already, so he could have had a police officer on there at any time that he wished. It was his set to do with how he wanted. It sure looks like this is nothing more than a PR stunt from Mr. Baldwin in an attempt to rehabilitate his image.
