Ireland Baldwin said she was “triggered” by her dad Alec’s accidental shooting on the set of Rust last month. Cinematographer Halyna Hutchins, 42, died after the 63-year-old actor fired a prop gun on a New Mexico film set.
At the weekend, eight people died and many more were injured due to crowd members being crushed at Travis Scott’s Astroworld Festival where 50,000 people attended in Houston.
Today, Piers Morgan, 56, shared his thoughts on Ireland Baldwin’s comments about the tragic event.
American news site Page Six shared Alec’s daughter’s original post on their Twitter page, to which the journalist slammed.
In view of her 681,000 followers, Ireland began by hitting out at people for “spreading misinformation on Twitter and TikTok”.
She then criticised those who she claimed were acting like “armony/stunt coordinations pros” following her dad’s shooting.
“I am heartbroken for the families who lost a loved one. Everyone should feel safe when they’re going to enjoy live music. But it’s not Travis Scott’s fault,” she penned.
The 26-year-old added that the rapper wouldn’t have been able to hear anyone screaming for help while on stage “especially when wearing in-ear monitors”.
She urged people to “do a little research” before “spewing cancel culture b******t”.
Piers commented: “Is there a more tone deaf family in America than the Baldwins?”
Many of his eight million followers flocked to his post to share their thoughts.
