Shooting Incident: Actor, Alec Baldwin’s Daughter Slams Father’s Critic, Candace Owen
Ireland, daughter of American actor, Alec Baldwin, has slammed controversial author, Candace Owens for tweeting that her dad Alec Baldwin’s accidental shooting was ‘poetic justice’ following the actor’s criticism of Donald Trump.
Her response came after the conservative pundit, 32, criticised her father on social media over the shooting that killed cinematographer Halyna Hutchins and injured Director, Joel Souza on October 16.
In Owens’ since-deleted tweets, she wrote;
Alec Baldwin spent 4 years dedicated to painting Donald Trump and his supporters as evil murderers.
What has happened to Alec would be an example of poetic justice if it weren’t for the actual innocent people that were murdered by him. Pray for their families. So sad.
The 26-year-old model continued;
Regardless of your foul opinions most of the time, the fact that you would disrespect the life of a woman who was accidentally and tragically killed… Shame on you.’
Later, the star added;
Be a republican. Be unvaccinated. I don’t give a f**k. There are plenty of liberal ones that I support as well… But one f***ing thing I find myself doing is being RESPECTFUL.
But we aren’t debating masks and vaccines and abortion and trans rights here… a woman’s life was lost. Your tweets, lack of information, and ignorance are hurting people.
You and that scumbag @jackmposobiec don’t have a clue what you’re even talking about and you usually never do.
I respect people’s opinions… but if you support these absolute clowns… please don’t follow me anymore. I beg.
Hours later, Ireland updated her fans to let them know she and Owens had an ‘actual conversation’ that went a ‘long way.’
In a screenshot of their direct messages, the beauty thanked Owens ‘for taking the time to have a real conversation.’
After wishing the conservative author a ‘peaceful evening,’ Owens replied ‘no problem. Same to you.’
Ireland in a separate post on her Instagram Story said;
I will always stand for what I do… but one thing we need of in this world is perpetuated hate and anger and fighting… especially in the wake of this tragedy. Thanks, again, to everyone who has been so kind and supportive.
