Alec Baldwin: Twitter’s a ‘vast orchard’ of rubbish

Alec Baldwin has slammed Twitter as a “vast orchard” of rubbish.

The ‘Saturday Night Live’ star seemingly referenced the claims that his wife Hilaria Baldwin has been misrepresenting her heritage as he spoke out about the “ridiculous” things he has read on social media, just hours after Twitter trolls targeted his spouse over her cultural background.

Taking to Instagram, Alec shared with his followers: “You have to kind of hack your way through the debris of Twitter. Twitter is just a vast orchard of c***.”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. 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.'”

Meanwhile, Hilaria – who has Eduardo, two months, Romeo, two, Leonardo, four, Rafael, five and Carmen, seven – recently insisted she wants “to be left alone”.

She wrote: “I’ve said my piece. I’m so tired. I’m going to go back to my family, because I’ve been not a very good mommy spending a lot of time focusing on this. I just want to be left alone. I love you and I’m going to sign off for a long time.”

Hilaria had previously revealed she is teaching her children to be bilingual so they can understand and embrace her Spanish heritage, after people slammed her story.

She wrote: “A bit about me. I’ve seen chatter online questioning my identity and culture. This is something I take very seriously, and for those who are asking – I’ll reiterate my story, as I’ve done many times before. 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.”
