Alec Baldwin And Wife Hilaria Delete Twitter Accounts Days After ‘Rust’ Interview

Alec Baldwin and his wife, Hilaria, have both deleted their main Twitter accounts just days after the Hollywood star’s interview denying blame in the shooting death of “Rust” cinematographer Halyna Hutchins.

The actor’s main @alecbaldwin account — which he had used for earlier official statements over the fatal “Rust” shooting — had been deleted by late Sunday, The Hollywood Reporter noted.

Users trying to find the much-used account are now met with the message, “This account doesn’t exist.”

At the time, Baldwin’s foundation account, @ABFalecbaldwin, was still active, as was his wife account @HilariaBaldwin, the media outlet said.

But by Monday, both of those accounts had also been deleted.

Baldwin’s other verified Twitter account, @alecbaldwin__, one he calls “a social media phantom limb,” was still up Monday. He has not tweeted from it since Oct. 19. The account does not include his previous statements on the death of Hutchins, a 42-year-old mom of one, during the filming of their Western movie in New Mexico in October.

The Baldwins were both still active on Instagram, however. The actor paid tribute to Bob Dole just before midnight, moments after reposting a sad-sounding song along with an image of someone sleeping outside under a full moon.

He had recently also posted about his “tough times” and how his wife has “given him a reason to live.”

Hilaria, meanwhile, was business as usual early Monday, posting images of her kids on her Instagram Stories.

Neither appears to have made mention of deleting their Twitter accounts, and Baldwin’s rep did not respond to requests for comment, The Hollywood Reporter said.

The hot-headed actor has been known to go dark on social media following past scandals.

He had said “goodbye” to Twitter in January as his wife faced scrutiny for her years of using a heavy Spanish accent even though she finally admitted she was actually a “white girl” from Boston.

He also swore off the site in 2011 when he was booted from a Los Angeles-to-New York City flight for freaking out at crew members, and again before his wedding in 2012 after brawling with photographers.

He left again in 2013, writing “f–k this twitter” after threatening to “f–k up” a “toxic little queen” reporter for the Daily Mail who’d accused Hilaria of posting a series of upbeat tweets during the funeral of James Gandolfini.

In 2014, Baldwin insisted in a 5,000-word pity piece for New York magazine titled “I Give Up” that he wasn’t just leaving social media but saying goodbye to “public life.”

His second Twitter exit this year came just days after ABC News aired his tearful interview over the “Rust” shooting.

In it, he claimed he had not even had his finger on the trigger when Hutchins died, and said that although “someone is ​responsible for what happened … I know it’s not me.”
