American actor, writer, producer, and comedian Alec Baldwin is taking a break from Twitter amid the headline-grabbing scandal of his wife Hilaria’s heritage scandal.
The “Saturday Night Live” actor in a Tweet on Monday said, “Twitter is like a party where everyone is screaming. Not much of a party. Goodbye for now.”
Alec, 62, who tied the knot with Hilaria in 2012, has supported her by 100 percent during the controversy.
Hilaria, 36, a popular yoga guru, was forced to admit that despite speaking with a questionable accent and claiming she was born in Spain, she’s actually just a “white girl” from Boston.
In an Instagram video, Alec turned out in support of his wife saying, “when you love somebody, you wanna defend them” and urged viewers to “consider the source.”
While a previous post on Twitter, he wrote: “You have to kind of hack your way through the debris of Twitter. Twitter is just a vast orchard of crap.”
“And I have certainly slung some crap in that orchard myself every now and then with things I’ve said. So, that’s not lost on me that I’m guilty of that as well,” Alec added.
