Alec Baldwin's First Post After Rust Shooting Charge Speaks Volumes About His Priorities


While Alec Baldwin hasn’t yet publicly responded to the charges leveled against him, his lawyer, Luke Nikas, told People they intended to fight the charges and ultimately emerge victorious. In a statement, Nikas described the decision as a “terrible miscarriage of justice” and that the actor “relied on the professionals with whom he worked, who assured him the gun did not have live rounds.”

Baldwin’s priorities appear to be with his family. The actor took to Instagram to share a photo of his son, Leo, giving his mother, Hilaria Baldwin, a massage. “The old ‘let me give you a back rub’ ploy,” he captioned the moment. “Potato chips to follow.” Fans and well-wishers were quick to offer their thoughts on the charges against the actor in the comments. “I’m not a fan if you. But your not guilty and you shouldn’t be charged,” one fan wrote. “You will be cleared. Ask for a jury. No way 12 would agree you should be convicted,” penned another.

Baldwin’s nonchalance on the issue shouldn’t come as a surprise, as the actor previously expressed confidence in his innocence. Speaking with George Stephanopoulos in his first interview after the shooting, Baldwin displayed a veil of self-assurance, noting that his hands are indeed clean. “Someone put a live bullet in a gun. A live bullet that wasn’t even supposed to be on the property,” he said at the time, per ABC News. “Someone is ​responsible for what happened, and I can’t say who that is, but I know it’s not me.”
