Alec Baldwin has just confused everyone under the sun with his latest claim about the shooting on the set of his film “Rust.” Baldwin sat down to discuss the shooting that resulted in the death of his cinematographer, with ABC News host George Stephanopoulos.
And what he said in that interview has everyone completely confused and stunned.
Alec, who looks like he’s been put through the wringer, just told George Stephanopoulos that he didn’t pull the trigger on the gun.
What the heck?
Newsmax reported that Alec Baldwin says in an upcoming TV interview that he did not pull the trigger of the gun that fired a live bullet and killed a cinematographer on the set of the movie “Rust,” according to an excerpt released on Wednesday.
Baldwin, who was holding the gun during a rehearsal when it went off, was speaking in his first full interview about the Oct. 21 shooting in New Mexico.
“Well, the trigger wasn’t pulled. I didn’t pull the trigger,” the actor told ABC television journalist George Stephanopoulos, according to the excerpt of the interview due to be broadcast on Thursday.
So you never pulled the trigger?” Stephanopoulos asked Baldwin.
“No, no, no. I would never point a gun at anyone and pull a trigger at them. Never,” Baldwin replied.
He added that he had no idea how a live bullet got onto the set of the Western movie he was making near Santa Fe.

What the actual…? Alec Baldwin says he never pulled the trigger on the gun. 🤡Did the gun just pull its own trigger? You have got to be kidding me. I think I might actually be triggered. By the way rest in peace to the beautiful young mother he killed 🙏pic.twitter.com/nNkeM17Wn8

People are literally stunned after hearing this announcement from Alec, and many don’t know what to make of it.
I’ll take a stab at it…I think this is a “legal move” since he’s getting sued all over the place, and also, it may be some cockamamie “defense” if he is charged by police.
Whatever it is, it sounds like a lot of “acting” and “CYA” moves.
If you ask me, this dirtbag Alec Baldwin is only looking out for himself now.
