‘What Alec Baldwin did is a tragedy’ tweet sparks backlash

A social media commentator is being slammed by netizens for posting a tweet supporting Alec Baldwin after the director was charged with manslaughter for shooting cameraman Halyna Hutchins in October 2021.

According to Daily MailJeff Tiedrich – a New York-based graphic designer reacted to the ruling by comparing Alec to Kyle Rittenhouse who shot and killed two Black Lives Matter protesters in August 2020.

“What Alec Baldwin did is tragedy. what Kyle Rittenhouse did is murder. if you don’t recognize the difference I can’t help you,” Jeff tweeted.

The post quickly went viral, garnering 87,000 likes and 15,000 replies.

The 65-year-old tweeted on Friday: “Holy (expletive) if an actor who accidentally discharges a gun while rehearsing for a movie has you (expletive) bricked, wait until you hear from the teenager who asked to his mom to drive him across state lines so he could deliberately shoot into a crowd of protesters.

Netizens reacted angrily to the tweet as one fan wrote: ‘Rittenhouse was a clear case of self defense and anyone who says otherwise is likely motivated by personal animosity towards him.’
