Alec Baldwin defends wife Hilaria Baldwin against heritage claims


#Alec #Baldwin has come to his wife #Hilaria #Baldwin’s defence after she admitted that her name is actually #Hilary and that she was born in #Boston and not #Majorca.

The SNL star took to #Instagram to urge fans to “consider the source” when it comes to believing what they read online.

#Hilaria, 36, was forced to reveal that “Yes, I am a white girl. I am a white girl,” after people started digging into her heritage, discovering that she has been misrepresenting it for years.

#Alec, 62, didn’t address the claims directly, but instead went on a rant about social media.

#Twitter is “a lot of sh*t,” he said. ”#You have to kind of hack your way through the debris of #Twitter. #Twitter is just a vast orchard of crap.

“There’s things that have been said lately about people that I love, that I care about deeply, which are ridiculous. I mean, just ridiculous.”

“They’ve said it about people I love – false things. #Untrue things,” the actor said.

“And as much as that hurts, the only thing I can do is talk to that half of the public or that portion of the public who understands what I mean when I say: #Consider the source. #When you love somebody you want to defend them.”

The following day, #Alec posted a quote that seemed to be directed at the scandal. “A lie can travel halfway around the world while the truth is putting on its shoes.”

#In a lengthy seven-minute #Instagram video, #Hilaria hit back at online claims which alleged the she had been “faking” a #Spanish accent, using a fake name and shared incorrect claims she was born in #Mallorca, #Spain.

#Her post was in response to a now-viral #Twitter thread which shared multiple videos of #Baldwin speaking in a #Spanish accent which conflicted with the #American accent she uses in her recent #Instagram videos.

“You have to admire #Hilaria #Baldwin’s commitment to her decade long grift where she impersonates a #Spanish person,” tweeted @lenibriscoe.

#Among the thousands of responses, some of #Baldwin’s former classmates claimed the yoga instructor grew up in the US and went by the name #Hilary, not #Hilaria.

“I went to high school with her. #Genuinely lovely person, I recall, but fully a white girl from #Cambridge,” wrote one user.

“I went to high school with her. #She was perfectly nice and serious about ballroom dancing. #Her name was indeed #Hilary #Hayward-Thomas and she did not have her current accent,” shared another.

#Many posts on #Twitter have also expressed confusion, intrigue and anger over the star’s changing identity.

“Hilaria #Baldwin aka #Hilary #Thomas is the weirdest story I’ve heard this year. #Faking a whole persona and accent this whole time? #Her parents are white and from #Boston. There’s no way she was born in #Spain since her mom (sic) was in med school in #Boston in 1984 (graduated in 1986),” wrote one user.

“Remember when #Hilaria #Baldwin (nee #Hilary #Hayward-Thomas) was like, “How you say in #English, uh, ‘cucumber’”?” shared US-based writer #Sophie #Ross.

“I’ll give #Hilaria #Baldwin this – when she commits to a con, she COMMITS. #She even gave her children #Spanish names. #Hilaria from #Majorca is really #Hilary from #Boston. #You can’t make this sh*t up. #What’s the #Hispanic version of blackface?”

Their confusion is warranted. #Previously it’s been reported the mum-of-five and wife of #Alec #Baldwin grew up in #Mallorca, #Spain and can be heard speaking with a #Spanish accent in several media interviews.

#Baldwin herself also claimed on the#mumtruths podcast that she moved to the US when she was 19 to go to #New #York #University.

“My family lives in #Spain, they live in #Mallorca,” she confirmed to the hosts.

#Her talent agency bio with the #Creative #Artists #Agency also confirms that #Baldwin was “born in #Mallorca, #Spain and raised in #Boston, #Massachusetts”.

#Clarifying the confusion in her #Instagram video, however, #Baldwin has now confirmed she was born in #Boston, #Massachusetts and not #Mallorca, #Spain.

“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,” she wrote in the caption. “We celebrate both cultures in our home – #Alec and I are raising our children bilingual, just as I was raised.”

#She also admitted that being bilingual, her accent does fluctuate.

“I am that person who if I have been speaking a lot of #Spanish then I tend to mix them and if I’ve been speaking a lot of #English then I mix up my #Spanish,” she said. “It’s one of those things that I’ve always been a bit insecure about. #When I get nervous or upset then I tend to mix the two.

“It’s not something I’m playing at … I want that to be very, very clear.”

#Finally when it came to her name, #Baldwin said that while she used the name #Hilary in high school, she’s known to her family as #Hilaria. #She later “consolidated” her name as #Hilaria as it was administratively easier.

“One of the things I love about what my parents called me, it means happy in both languages, we can all be really clear that it’s the same name, it’s just a few letters different, we shouldn’t be so upset about it,” she said
