Hilaria Baldwin wears ’empathy’ jumper following Alec Baldwin’s impending involuntary manslaughter charge

Share


Hilaria Baldwin stepped out wearing a jumper with the word “empathy” emblazoned across the front amid news of her husband Alec Baldwin will be charged with involuntary manslaughter.

The yoga instructor was photographed on a coffee run in the bold green sweatshirt just hours after prosecutors announced Alec would face manslaughter charges for the death of cinematographer Halyna Hutchins on the set of Rust.

The actor, 64, along with film’s armourer, Hannah Gutierrez Reed, will each be charged with two counts of involuntary manslaughter, prosecutors announced on Thursday (Friday morning AEDT).

US lawyer Neama Rahmani told the hosts of The Today Show this morning that “throwing the book at Baldwin doesn’t seem right”, claiming that in his legal opinion, assistant director Dave Halls, who was the one who told Baldwin the gun was “cold”, bears more responsibility.

Halls has pleaded guilty and is to be charged with six months of probation, with no jail time or misdemeanour, which Rahmani believes isn’t fair on Baldwin.

“What isn’t fair is the culpability,” says Rahmani, “You’re talking about an armourer who really bears responsibility for maintaining these weapons and making sure they’re safe.”

Baldwin maintains his innocence, claiming that he did not pull the trigger of the prop gun that led to a stray bullet hitting and killing Hutchins on the film set in 2021, with his lawyers calling the charges “a terrible miscarriage of justice.”

“This decision distorts Halyna Hutchins’ tragic death and represents a terrible miscarriage of justice. Mr. Baldwin had no reason to believe there was a live bullet in the gun – or anywhere on the movie set,” the actor’s attorney Luke Nikas said.

“He relied on the professionals with whom he worked, who assured him the gun did not have live rounds. We will fight these charges, and we will win.”
