Alec Baldwin calls Hilaria scandal 'a load of s**t' after wife accused of 'lying about being Spanish'

ALEC Baldwin lashed out at trolls who accused his wife Hilaria of lying about being Spanish.

The 30 Rock star, 62, branded the claims about Hilaria's heritage "just a load of s**t", in a furious rant on Sunday.

Users on Twitter have been claiming Hilaria, whose maiden name is Thomas, has been using a fake Spanish accent in interviews.

One user captioned a video of Hilaria, 36, speaking in a Spanish accent on Good Morning America after she married Alec in 2012: “Fake Spanish accent debut – this woman grew up in Massachusetts.”

In another video, Hilaria said during a cooking segment: “We have very few ingredients. We have tomatoes, we have, um, how do you say in English, cucumbers.”

Alec did not address the controversy directly but alluded to them as he discussed the "ridiculous" claims made recently towards "people I love".

He branded Hilaria's critics “used coasters with the rings on them and the stains on them," in an Instagram video.

“You have to kind of hack your way through the debris of Twitter. Twitter is just a vast orchard of crap," Alec vented.

“And I have certainly slung some crap in that orchard myself every now and then with things I’ve said.

"So, that’s not lost on me that I’m guilty of that as well. But I would publicly dump Twitter tomorrow."

The SNL star added: "They write things a lot of it not true. They want to s**t it all over you, their venom, their hate.

"There are things that have been said recently about people I love that are ridiculous.

"The majority of what's been said is false and some of it is so spectacularly false – false things, untrue things.

"As much as it hurts, the only thing I can do is talk to that portion of the public who understands when I say 'consider the source.'"

Alec's daughter Ireland also leapt to her stepmom's defense, calling Hilaria's critics "sad and pathetic" on her Instagram Stories.

"I find it really sad that people have the time that they do to play detective and make up a lot of lies and fabricate a lot of truths to fit a story,” she raged.

“I’m sorry that people are giving you such a hard time during a time that is already so **king difficult for everyone in this world coping with the realities of Covid and being without family over the holidays and even losing family during the holidays due to this madness…

"I know who you are and I know what you are not and I’m lucky to know you for who you truly are.”

Hilaria defended herself in a video, admitting that she is "white" and that her birth name is "Hilary" – but that she was brought up with "two cultures".

"I identified more with Hilaria because that’s what my family calls me. It means happy in all languages. We can all be clear, it’s the same just a few letters different so we shouldn’t be upset about it.”

She continued: “This boils down to this idea where this is a country of a lot of different cultures. I think we can be different parts of ourselves with different people. I’m somebody who I feel really lucky that I grew up with two cultures, I grew up speaking two languages. 

“Yes I am a white girl. Let’s be very clear Europe has a lot of white people in there. My family is white."

The mother-of-five went on: "Ethnically I’m a mix of many things. It’s really as simple as that. That’s who I am. You can’t change your background. Not that I would want to. I’m really, really proud of who I am.”

"I was born in Boston and grew up spending time with my family between Massachusetts and Spain.

"My parents and sibling live in Spain and I chose to live here, in the USA. We celebrate both cultures in our home – Alec and I are raising our children bilingual, just as I was raised."

“This is very important to me. I understand that my story is a little different, but it is mine, and I’m very proud of it.”

But fans didn’t buy her defense, as one commented on the video: “She clearly said in April 2020 that she moved to the US from Spain to go to NYC. But never ever lived in Spain or went to school in Spain – her family vacationed a lot there though. I just don’t understand, I am so confused.”

A second wrote on Instagram: “So you weren't born in Spain, as you have said many times? Nor are you of Spanish descent, as you have also said?”

Hilaria and Alec share children Carmen Gabriela, 7, Rafael Thomas, 5, Leonardo Ángel Charles, 4, Romeo Alejandro David, 2, and Eduardo, who was born in September.
