Alec Baldwin slammed for 'sexually suggestive innuendo' caption about son and wife

Alec Baldwin has come under fire for his first Instagram post since the news broke that he will be charged with two counts of involuntary manslaughter.

Mere days after prosecutors revealed plans to hold him responsible for the accidental murder of Halyna Hutchins in October 2021, the actor, 64, left followers baffled with his latest caption on Instagram.

Beneath a sweet photo of his son holding his mother’s shoulders as they sat on the living room floor, the Golden Globe winner sent trolls into a frenzy by suggesting his son was wearing ‘the old man let me give you a back rub’ mother Hilaria Baldwin.

The public post came just hours after Hilaria, who was born in Boston, was mocked for adopting an “offensive” Spanish accent while asking photographers to leave her children alone after Alec’s accusation.

“Imagine being indicted for involuntary manslaughter and the first post you make after the ad includes a photo of your wife seeking attention, posed with their young son and captioned with sexually suggestive innuendo,” asked one critic in the comments section.

Another wrote: “Anyone else think this is creepy with the caption? The photo is sweet. The caption makes everything weird.

A third commenter wrote: ‘Dude you need to consult your team before posting, dude this doesn’t help your case.’

One of Baldwin’s fans explained to the 30 Rock star that the ‘damage of back rubs is a joke between adults, not between mother and child’.

Others begged the father of eight to stop being ‘problematic’ and stop posting.

Last week, sources claimed that Alec is “trying to stay strong” for his kids after being charged with involuntary manslaughter in the death of Halyna Hutchins.

Fighting to clear his name: As for his legal woes, Alec has repeatedly denied any wrongdoing over Hutchins' death and insisted that assistant director Dave Halls said he was given a 'cold' gun - meaning it was unloaded and safe (viewed in 2019)

The cinematographer was killed when a gun went off during rehearsals on the set of the upcoming western film in October 2021 and now the 654-year-old actor – who is married to Hilaria Baldwin and has Carmen Gabriela, nine, Rafael Thomas, seven, Leonardo Ángel Charles, six, Romeo Alejandro David, four, Eduardo Pao Lucas, two, and daughters Ilaria Catalina Irena, three months with her – but say he is ‘focused’ on his children and ‘supported’ by his wife when they come according to the charges.

A source told People: ‘They were prepared for all the results, but nothing can prepare you for this. They are really supporting each other and trying to keep the focus on the kids. Hilaria has been Alec’s rock through it all, and seeing him so distraught is heartbreaking for her. She is doing everything she can to support him and they are doing their best to stay strong for the kids.

The film’s chief gunsmith, Hannah Gutierrez-Reed, faces the same charge, and both face a maximum of five years in prison if found guilty.

Santa Fe District Attorney Mary Carmack-Altwies said charges will be filed by the end of the month.

She added in a statement: “Actor and producer Alec Baldwin and gunsmith Hannah Gutierrez-Reed will be charged with two counts of involuntary manslaughter.

‘After a thorough review of the evidence… I have determined that there is sufficient evidence.

‘Under my supervision, no one is above the law and everyone deserves justice.’

Assistant director Dave Halls pleaded guilty to negligent use of a deadly weapon. He will receive six months of probation and a suspended prison sentence.

Alec has repeatedly denied any wrongdoing and said that Dave said it was a ‘cold’ gun – meaning it was unloaded and safe – when he handed the gun to him.

Hannah wasn’t present when the incident took place, but the actor previously hinted that she had some responsibility as it was her job to prepare and check the props.

The ’30 Rock’ star previously insisted she didn’t pull the trigger when Halyna was shot, but the FBI tested the gun and issued a report which concluded it would not have fired if someone hadn’t pulled the trigger.

Halyna’s death was previously ruled an accident, but her family has filed a wrongful death lawsuit against Alec and others involved in the production.

The lawsuit was settled last October, and it was agreed that filming would resume on ‘Rust’, with the director of photography’s widower, Matthew Hutchins, on board as executive producer.

Matthew has previously said he has “no interest” in apportioning blame for his wife’s tragic death and wants to pay tribute to Halyna’s “final work”.

In a statement, he said, “We have reached a settlement, subject to court approval, for our wrongful death case against the producers of ‘Rust,’ including Alec Baldwin and Rust Movie Productions, LLC. As part of that settlement, our case will be dismissed.

‘Filming on ‘Rust’, which I will now executive produce, will resume with all original leads on board in January 2023.

‘I have no interest in engaging in recriminations or assigning blame (to the producers or Mr Baldwin).

‘We all believe that Halyna’s death was a terrible accident. I’m grateful that the producers and entertainment community came together to honor Halyna’s final work.’

Alec also sued four crew members – Hannah, Dave, Sarah Zachry and Seth Kenney – claiming they failed to protect the film set.
