These are the photos of Alec Baldwin after accidentally killing a woman on set. Presumably, he’s on the phone hearing she’s dead.
I feel bad for the guy, even though I hate him.
But seriously, look at this:
Accidentally killing someone is a horrible thing for any human being to have to deal with.
But Baldwin really is a smug piece of shit.
And maybe if he wasn’t a literal anti-gun New Yawker, he would have checked the bullets before shooting them in the direction of a person.
I have no idea how live rounds end up in a gun on a movie set. Especially given that this is a period Western, and it would have been some kind of special antique replica gun. If it’s just a 9mm or something, maybe someone could get their personal gun confused with a prop gun.
But yeah, sucks for Baldwin.
This happened in the film The Crow when Brandon Lee was killed.
This is from the Wikipedia page of the guy that fired the shot, Michael Massee:
In 1993, Massee portrayed the character Funboy in the film The Crow, starring Brandon Lee. Massee was the actor who fired the shot that killed Lee by accident on the set in 1993, due to an improperly prepared prop gun. Traumatized by the event, he returned to New York and took a year off from acting, and never saw the film. In an interview in 2005, twelve years after the incident, Massee revealed that he still had nightmares about it, going on to say, “I don’t think you ever get over something like that.”
Alec Baldwin is a scumbag and a vaxer, so I’m not going to waste too much time thinking about his personal anguish.
It’s interesting to me how much I do feel for him though. It’s been popping in my head a lot since I heard about it.
I guess these are just basic human emotions, where you have empathy for someone even if you don’t like them.
This meme got me too though.
It would be really amazing if this changed Alec Baldwin, and he came to Jesus.
But I don’t think that can happen if he really took the vax.
His son-in-law Justin Bieber I think has tried his best to be a Christian in recent years. He said he got married specifically because he didn’t want to be tempted to have sex outside of wedlock with all of the women who throw themselves at him, which is a pretty good Christian thing to do. (Although his wife is just going to divorce him and destroy his life, he should have checked out her family before he married her.)
