Alec Baldwin leaves Twitter after uproar over wife’s heritage

It’s “Goodbye for now” for Alec Baldwin and Twitter.

The actor bid adieu to the social media platform Monday in the wake of uproar over his wife’s claims of having a Spanish heritage.

“Twitter is like a party where everyone is screaming,” his tweet read. “Not much of a party. Goodbye for now.”

Hilaria Baldwin faced backlash after some on social media began accusing her of faking a Spanish accent and questioning whether she was born on the Spanish island of Mallorca.

Videos of her speaking with an accent appeared on social media and people who claimed to have attended high school with her also posted to dispute her claim that she came to the US at the age of 19 to attend college.

The lifestyle expert and podcaster sought to explain what she viewed as confusion.

“This is something I take very seriously,and for those who are asking — I’ll reiterate my story, as I’ve done many times before,” she said in a video on her Instagram account. “I was born in Boston and grew up spending time with my family between Massachusetts and Spain. My parents and sibling live in Spain and I chose to live here, in the USA.”

Alec Baldwin appeared to defend his wife in a lengthy video he posted on his verified Instagram account in which he talked about social media.

“There’s things that have been said lately about people that I love, that I care about deeply, which are ridiculous,” he said “I mean, just ridiculous.”

It’s not the first time the “30 Rock” star has taken a break from Twitter.

He’s done it a few times including in 2017 after comments he made about sexual harassment and assault in the wake of the beginning of the #MeToo movement sparked outrage.
