“For now, goodbye,” wrote the actor, who has been married to Hilaria Baldwin since 2012
Alec Baldwin decided to move away from Twitter a month after his wife, Hilaria Baldwin, was accused of lying about her origins.
The 62-year-old actor announced his decision on Monday (18), shortly after retweeting an article about Martin Luther King Jr. “Twitter is like a party that everyone is shouting at. It’s not quite a party,” he wrote. “For now, goodbye.”
Twitter is like a party where everyone is screaming.
Not much of a party.
Goodbye for now.

This is not the first time that Alec decides to leave the social network. In July 2013, the American temporarily abandoned his account after attacking a British journalist who had claimed that Hilaria was tweeting during the funeral of actor James Gandolfini. He apologized for his statements, and later told Vanity Fair that he would never return to Twitter: “I told myself that this is all a waste of time. Which means it’s fun sometimes, but it’s less and less. fun. It’s just another crack in his armor for people to come and kill him. ”
Hilaria became one of the most talked-about subjects on the internet in late December 2020, when several social network users pointed out that the fitness instructor had invented her Spanish roots. Some people even pointed out that she, too, had pretended to have an accent in some interviews.
Hilaria ended up justifying herself in a video shared on Instagram. “I was born in Boston and spent my life between Massachusetts and Spain,” he explained. “My parents and siblings live in Spain and I chose to live here, in the United States.”
At the time, a source informed People magazine that Alec showed a lot of support for his wife amid the scandal. “They celebrated the New Year in the Hamptons. While Hilaria looked a little upset, Alec was around to comfort her,” said the American vehicle contact.
Hilaria and Alec married in 2012, and have five children: Eduardo, 3 months old; Romeo, 2 years old; Leonardo, 4; Rafael Thomas, 5; and Carmen Gabriela, 7.
The ‘The Departed’ actor (2006) is also the father of the 25-year-old model Ireland Baldwin.
