Alec Baldwin's wife, Hilaria, appeared in public with an interesting inscription on a T-shirt and a message for the media after her husband was charged with manslaughter. A day after prosecutors said they plan to file charges against Alec Baldwin in the death of cameraman Halyne Hutchins on the set of "Rust," the actor's wife, Hilaria, was spotted in New York.
She wore a T-shirt that reads "empathy," which many took to be a message of support for Baldwin. In the video, which was published on TikTok, she strongly condemned the behavior of journalists and photographers, who are trying to get their statements.
"I'm gonna tell you what I'm going to say," she said in the footage the Associated Press posted on TikTok. "You're not gonna ask me questions. I'm gonna tell you, OK?" "So on a human level, you guys know I'm not gonna say anything to you.
You know that," she continued. "So, please, leave my family in peace and let this all play out. OK? So let my kids come home and you stay away from them. Because they ask me, 'Mommy... what are these people doing?' And it's a very hard thing as a mom to try to explain.
So please, go home, 'cause I'm not gonna say anything and Alec is not going to say anything."

The Tragic Accident on Set
Despite the tragic incident, the filming of "Rust" will continue, with Matthew Hutchins, Halyna's widower, serving as an executive producer and receiving a share of the profits.
Matthew Hutchins has stated, "I have no interest in engaging in recriminations or attribution of blame. All of us believe Halyna's death was a terrible accident." He further added, "Throughout this difficult process, everyone has maintained the specific desire to do what is best for Halyna's son.
We are grateful to everyone who contributed to the resolution of this tragic and painful situation." As a reminder, Halyna Hutchins was working as a cameraman in the film when she was killed in an accident by the actor Baldwin, while he was practicing using a revolver on the set.
Director Joel Souza was also injured in the shooting. Questions are being raised about how the live ammunition got onto the set and into the prop gun, and whether crew members took proper precautions.
