Alec Baldwin deleted his Twitter account. A few days after the interview about the tragedy on the set of the movie “Rust”

The Hollywood Reporter noted that the actor’s main account – alecbaldwin – who had previously used him to make official statements about the fatal shooting on set, was removed Sunday night.

Users who try to visit the account the actor is using now see “This account does not exist”.

On Sunday, the accounts of the Baldwin Foundation — @ABFalecbaldwin — and that of his wife, HilariaBaldwin, are still running. But they also disappeared from Twitter on Monday.

Baldwin’s other verified Twitter account, @alecbaldwin__, which he called “the fake party on social media,” was still up on Monday, but the previous posts were gone, and by the afternoon it was completely empty.

And US media indicated that the remaining account on Twitter did not include his statements about the killing of Hutchins, who died on October 21 during the shooting of a Westerner in New Mexico.

Director Joel Sousa was also injured on the set of the movie “Rust”.

George Stephanopoulos, an advisor to Bill Clinton, interviewed the 63-year-old actor during his presidency. ABC aired the full 80-minute conversation on Thursday.

“Someone carried live ammunition in a pistol, a bullet that should not have been there at all. “Someone is responsible for what happened and I don’t know who it is, but I know it’s not me,’” Alec Baldwin argued.

As he explained, he had no reason to suspect that live ammunition might have been among the props. – I don’t know what happened in the group. I don’t know how the bullet ended up in the pistol – the actor argued.

Alec Baldwin remembers meeting Hutchins on the day of the accident to discuss the scene being filmed. He played a trapped and badly wounded character who was supposed to point a weapon at two enemies.

I loved working with this woman. It was all joy. Everyone loved her. Baldwin said everyone admired her talent. He explained that Hutchins was instructing him how to hold a gun.

As Reuters writes, Baldwin was heavily criticized for failing to personally inspect the gun before filming the scene in which the tragedy occurred. During the interview, the actor argued that this is not his mission. A 45-caliber Colt was handed to him by Assistant Director Dave Holz during training. He later testified that he did not know it was loaded with live ammunition.

“When the person in charge of this task handed me the rifle, I trusted them. (…) Over the 40 years of my career, I have always believed in the professionalism of specialists whose job it was to keep the collection safe — Baldwin emphasized.
