That’s why when a reporter accused Thomas of tweeting “upbeat posts” during the solemn funeral of late actor James Gandolfini, Baldwin took to Twitter to not only set the record straight, but to personally call out the reporter, George Stark: “My wife and I attend a funeral to pay our respects to an old friend, and some toxic Brit writes this f***ing trash,” wrote Baldwin, adding, “My wife DID NOT use her phone, in any capacity, at our friend’s funeral. Now f*** this twitter + good luck to all of you who know the truth.”
Baldwin then deactivated his Twitter account, but not before writing, “I’m gonna find you, George Stark… and I’m gonna f***…you…up.”
Baldwin and Thomas later released a statement explaining that multiple witnesses can vouch for Thomas not even having her phone with her, that the reported times of the posts were not accurate, and that the “disgraceful” story was published without calling to get a comment or explanation first.
What do you think: Did Alec Baldwin completely overreact to defend his wife, Hilaria Thomas, or were his actions justified?
