Hilaria Baldwin appeared on a coffee run Saturday morning where she was slammed on social media for using her “fake” Spanish accent while distracting reporters on Friday so her husband, Alec, could escape from a Greenwich Village painting.
Clad in jeans and a turtleneck, Baldwin was seen clutching cups of coffee from the Madman Espresso shop on University Place while walking with another woman.
She told reporters on Friday that she would speak with them in the wake of news that Alec would be charged with manslaughter in the 2021 shooting of “Rust” cinematographer Halina Hutchins.
“On a human level, you guys know I wouldn’t say anything to you. You know that. So please leave my family in peace and let all this happen. Yes?” Hilaria, with her newborn strapped to her chest, told the assembled reporters.
When she tells the journalists to “go home”, Alec sneaks out and is later seen smiling as he tries to cover his face as he enters the Film Center building on Ninth Street.
Hilaria was later swipe online to express the slight Spanish accent she sometimes uses while doing bait-and-switch with the press. In 2020, her true heritage was revealed as Hilary Thomas from Massachusetts – not Hispanic ancestry as her husband once claimed.
“It looks so, how do you say it, authentic,” said one, while another mused, “It wouldn’t stop being funny for a white girl from Boston to pretend to be Hispanic.”
“This is one of the longest running LARPings in history,” another tweet said, referring to live-action role-playing games in which players don props and role-play.
Hilaria refused to answer any questions on Saturday as it came and went, at one point holding her baby girl and pushing another of the couple’s seven children in a pram.
A local worker said she took pity on Alec Baldwin.
Massiel Pimentel, who works at the Joey Healy Eyebrow Studio in University Place, where Hilaria works, said she recently saw the actor at a local bakery and wanted to confront him. She alleged that he stressed her cousin, a Puerto Rican taxi driver, out of the $80 fare.
“But I saw him and he looked really bad. I think this whole situation is really affecting him, so when I saw him I was like ‘Let me just leave him alone.’ Because he looks really bad,” she said.
Her cousin, who was speaking on FaceTime from Puerto Rico, confirmed that he was not paid by the actor, but said the incident happened 10 years ago and he didn’t want to give it a hard time.
He said, “He’s in enough trouble as he is with everything that’s going on right now.” “Karma gets you.”
