Per Fox News “Alec Baldwin has deleted one of his two Twitter accounts following his tell-all interview with George Stephanopoulos about the shooting incident that took place on the set of the movie “Rust.” ”
“The actor had two verified Twitter accounts, one of which he was much more active on and was the one he used to previously issue statements about the fatal shooting incident that took place on the set of the indie-western movie in October. However, following his interview last week, it seems the star has completely deleted the account labeled @AlecBaldwin.”
Weapons armorer Bryan W. Carpenter told Fox News Digital that pulling the hammer back and releasing it, causing the gun to fire, is still considered a “negligent discharge.”
“You have to cock the hammer, you have to pull the trigger, or you have to cock the hammer and let it fly forward, one of the two things, which requires an operator to do it,” Carpenter explained. “And if an operator is doing it, then they’re in control of the weapon. And if they’re cocking the hammer, they’re in the two-part process of firing it. And if they slip and let the hammer fall down, that’s still a negligent discharge.”
“If you cocked that hammer back, and you let it go, that’s still a negligent discharge,” he added. “You accidentally discharged that weapon, and it’s your fault.”
“So, you were just cocking the hammer back, it slipped and went off. It’s not the gun’s fault. It’s your fault because when that gun is sitting in a resting state, it’s in a neutral state. And someone, an operator, somebody has to do something to that gun to make it fire or not fire.”
Alec Baldwin was widely ripped over his interview where he denies feeling guilt over the death of Halyna Hutchins.

Another Twitter user wrote “This sob story interview was put out to try and paint a new narrative. I think Stephanopoulos did as good a job as is possible and asked good questions, but Baldwin was clearly coached. At the end of the day, the dude killed a woman and got away with it and got a “tv special””
Another wrote “How did Alec Baldwin’s lawyers allow him to do this interview? This is nothing but a clout chasing performance. We should be centering the victim, not him. #BaldwinABC”
Another wrote “Im side eyeing Alec..I’m not buying what he is selling. ”
