Alec Baldwin has been forced off of Twitter following his wife’s Hilaria Baldwin’s Spanish heritage scandal. The 62-year-old actor is no stranger to controversy. From his own personal scandals and public meltdowns to playing twice-impeached President Donald Trump on NBC’s Saturday Night Live (SNL) Alec Baldwin is used to public scrutiny and that’s why many are linking the timing of his departure from Twitter to Hilaria Baldwin‘s scandal.
Hilaria has been under fire since it has been learned that she was not born and educated in Spain as her public profiles stated, but was born in Boston and educated in their schools. She also admitted that her name was not Hilaria but rather Hillary and she referred to herself as a ‘white girl from Boston.’
Alec Baldwin defended his wife on Instagram when the scandal first broke, but now he’s retreating from the controversy. Alec shared the following on Twitter.
Twitter is like a party where everyone is screaming. Not much of a party. Goodbye for now.

Alec’s fans immediately asked him not to leave and to stay on social media. Alec has been extremely vocal about the Trump administration and many find it odd that he would step away from social media at the height of Joe Biden’s upcoming inauguration, especially when President Trump is rumored to be planning his own farewell event.
One person said this in response to Alec Baldwin’s announcement.
Don’t leave, ur wifes problems are hers, not yours. U still have fans.
Another person had this to say.
So it is ok if you are pointing the finger, but not when it is pointed at you? Seems legit
Someone couldn’t help but point out Hilaria’s scandal.
Is everyone “screaming”, or merely revealing your wife’s DECADE of cultural appropriation and LIES? Because of your “celebrity” you believe the fact that she is a consummate LIAR should be overlooked & you’re angry b/c you cannot simply BUY your way out of this w/a PR campaign.
What do you think about the entire Hilaria Baldwin scandal? Many people think that it is taking a toll on Hilaria’s and Alec’s marriage and that they won’t be able to survive as a couple.
Are you surprised that Alec Baldwin is leaving Twitter right before Donald Trump leaves office and Kamala Harris and Joe Biden are sworn in? Do you think Alec Baldwin should stay on social media? Do you think the real reason he is leaving is because of Hilaria Baldwin’s Spanish heritage scandal?
