The decade's most triggering comedy
Hilaria Baldwin got everyone’s attention when she took to Instagram on Wednesday, penning a note to her spouse, Alec Baldwin, about how his enemies “seek to destroy” him.
The 38-year-old praised her actor husband in a lengthy post on the “darker part” of Hollywood and what she called efforts to “delegitimize” his “voice.” Her post included a black-and-white photo of the couple.
“To enter your world and become your person has been both a joy and an eye opening experience,” the yoga enthusiast wrote. “How many wonderful moments, meeting incredible people, doing amazing experiences, and building a family. I am forever grateful. Every day.”
“The darker part is seeing behind the curtain at how some of this ‘business’ can function and the blows and sacrifices that someone in the public eye takes for speaking up for what they believe and for helping others,” she added. “Enemies of these missions seek to destroy you, in order to delegitimize your voice and purpose.”
“This is not a new tactic…it’s as old as history…yet, how easy it is now more than ever to slander people and cherry pick and piece together strands taken out of context, ‘opinions,’ or complete fabrications,” the wife of the “Saturday Night Live” star continued. “And how some people believe it or stay silent out of fear.”

Ms. Baldwin wrote about how her empathy for her husband’s “humanity is endless” and she’s personally “experienced the dehumanization myself,” something she labeled the “old tactic to go after the spouse of your enemy.”
She said such circumstances have caused her to ponder, “how much more can one body and one mind take before we crumple beneath the psychological torture?”
Baldwin closed out her post reminding her husband how much she appreciates him because she knows he’s “carrying quite a load, using the privileged place of your public voice for good.”
In October 2021, the “30 Rock” star was involved in the shooting of cinematographer Halyna Hutchins on the New Mexico film set of his upcoming movie “Rust.” The firearm Baldwin was holding discharged a bullet, as The Daily Wire previously reported.
Alec and Hilaria share daughters María Lucía Victoria, 1; Carmen Gabriela, 8; and sons Rafael Thomas, 7; Leonardo Ángel Charles, 5; Romeo Alejandro David, 4; and Eduardo “Edu” Pao Lucas, 1.
Alec also has a 26-year-old daughter, Ireland Baldwin, from his previous marriage to actress Kim Basinger.
