Hilaria Baldwin, the wife of actor Alec Baldwin, was widely regarded as Spanish. Recently, it turned out that was not true – although Baldwin, author, podcaster, and yoga teacher, maintains that she never says otherwise. How did this scandal start to blow up on the internet?
Hilaria Baldwin and the accent scandal: does she speak Spanish, and where do her parents come from?
Recently, Baldwin reported The New York Times how she found out about the Spanish accent scandal.
“I started seeing comments on my Instagram,” she explained. If you haven’t kept up, here’s the controversy, briefly:
Over the past week, millions of people, who were exhausted and exhausted and perhaps too online at the end of the year, are surprised to find out that Hilaria Baldwin, 36 and mother of five children with the her husband, actor Alec Baldwin, is not Spanish but an American born and raised in Boston and known, at least until 2009, as Hillary.
“It’s very surreal,” Baldwin told the publication. “There’s something I’m doing wrong, and I think there’s a difference between hiding and creating a boundary.”
How the controversy over accents began on Twitter
On December 21, 2020, the rumors started circulating on Twitter. A woman with the nickname @Lenibriscoe wrote, “You have to honor Hilaria Baldwin’s commitment to her ten-year arrest where she is insulting a Spanish man.” The Twitter user posted videos about Baldwin’s parents – as well as a snippet of the yoga instructor apparently forgetting the word for cucumber.
“She said Ms. Baldwin’s American upbringing was an open secret among many people in New York and she decided to make it less secretive,” the New York Times added.
This tweeter was apparently “given anonymously by the New York Times” out of fear for her safety. The publication explained:
… She said she feared that Mr Baldwin, who agreed to take an anger management course in 2019 to get rid of allegations after a fight with a man over a parking lot and was arrested, was taken from -planted and put off since working as an MSNBC guest, all in the last ten years, punch her.
However, the reasoning of this Manhattan blower behind her Twitter fall is somewhat bizarre – and at the same time resilient, in the midst of scattered times.
“We’re all bored,” she told the paper, “and it looks so strange to me that no one ever came out and said, especially to someone who gets so much media attention. ”
As her husband Alec Baldwin responded on Instagram
After the tweets started going viral, Baldwin responded on both Twitter and Instagram, saying she always she said she is from Boston, and that her family spoke Spanish and traveled a lot there when she was growing up. Her children also speak Spanish at school and at home.
Baldwin’s husband also stood up for her Instagram, writes: “You never said you were from Spain. You always said you were born here. ”
The 30 Creag the actor introduced him to the lies of the country.
“And, as is often the case in a society like the US right now, the horrible desire for scandal will eat someone else,” Alec Baldwin said.
