Hilaria Baldwin maybe have finally admitted she had been born in Boston and identifies as”a white girl,” but her husband Alec Baldwin is standing with her and her continued use of what many individuals are fairly certain is that a fake Spanish accent.
On Monday, People Magazine published an essay by staff writer Ale Russian criticizing Hilaria from the perspective of an immigrant. Entitled”Why the Hilaria Baldwin Scandal Is Painful for Immigrants — Including Me,” the article detail’s Russian’s experience, discusses the number of immigrants are marginalized, and calls out Hilaria for having an”exaggerated” accent”that she appropriated as an adult,” along with other things.
After Russian tweeted a hyperlink to the article, Baldwin reacted to her directly. “Fake? Exaggerated? Appropriated an accent as an adult? She lived in Spain for many years as a child. She lived both places,” he explained on Twitter.
The whole play really began on Sunday when, in one of those couple non-Trump-related scandals of the year, Hilaria posted a video to Instagram where she wasn’t speaking in a Spanish accent. This led to a substantial number of people digging into her desktop and concluding the Spanish accent she is used for years is imitation and further, that her claim to have been born in Mallorca, Spain is false.
Well, later in the afternoon the author, yoga instructor, and podcaster released another video that explained she was, in fact, born in Boston, Massachusetts, also that she does identify as”a white girl” — with the caveat that”Europe has a lot of white people” and”ethnically I am a mix of many, many, many things.” She’s also copped to the fact that she had been born Hilary Thomas, but says she chose to”consolidate” the two names when she married Alec.
Over the years, Baldwin has also said that she moved to the U.S. out of Spain when she had been 19 to examine at NYU, and that she’s Spanish parents. But others claim to have gone to high school with her in Massachusetts, and her parents seem to have just moved to Spain as lately as 2011.
In any case, Alec Baldwin has been the loyal husband to Hilaria — or at least he has attacked the credibility of her critics as well as the social networking business — and to be honest that’s really what you need to expect husbands to do. Even though, yeah, uh, that accent is not legit.
