Last week, Alec Baldwin gave his first interview since the tragic shooting on the set of “Rust.”
By most accounts, it was one of the worst acting performances of Baldwin’s career.
When approached by a reporter about the shooting on the Upper East Side, Baldwin just about lost it and charged at the reporter.
Baldwin was approaching a private residence when the reporter approached him.
While it may not be the best way to get an interview, the reporter was well within his rights where he was standing.
The residence itself may be private property, but the sidewalk is not.
The New York Post’s Jon Levine asked Baldwin, “Wait, Mr. Baldwin, I have to ask you, what brings you to New York City?”
He added, “Mr. Baldwin why…. who’s here?”
While this was going on, Baldwin’s wife was asking the reporter to go away, but he persisted.
Baldwin then charged at the man before returning to the residence and telling his wife to get inside…

Baldwin has thrown just about everyone under the bus regarding this shooting except himself.
He insists that he only cocked the hammer but never pulled the trigger.
What he insists happened, the gun went off on its own, is not possible.
Furthermore, he admittedly did not follow basic firearms safety procedures, instead choosing to “trust” the workers on the set to do their part.
I hate to tell you, Alec, but someone lost their life, so you don’t get to play that card here because someone must be held accountable.
For a man that is constantly attacking people on social media, it is somewhat ironic that he gets rattled so quickly now that all the attention is on him.
