Alec Baldwin Complains to Chris Cuomo, Admits He Thought ‘Rust’ Shooting Was ‘Setup’

Doomed Hollywood star Alec Baldwin has complained about cancel culture on Chris Cuomo’s podcast while discussing the on-set fatal shooting that killed Halyna Hutchins when he pulled the trigger.

Baldwin also took swipes at his critics and claimed that he would soon be free of his legal problems.

“Doing this with you as a miracle I don’t want to talk to anybody anymore, everything is surface area to be condemned and canceled,” Baldwin lamented.

“The people who are talking the loudest about what happens or speculating about what happened were not on the set of the film.

“The LA Times, The Hollywood Reporter, they are talking on and on about this,” he said.

“The thing that they have in common was no one was there.

“I’m not the real victim here.

“Things for me are going to get better,” he said.

“Things for me are going to get cleared up, I’m 1000% confident of that.

“Nothing’s going to bring this woman back.

“She died. She has a little boy. This is the real tragedy.”

Cuomo brought up the recent revelation that the FBI confirmed Baldwin pulled the trigger of the gun, despite previously claiming otherwise.

“You said I didn’t pull the trigger and there’s all this stage direction about the hammer which is obviously uh a part of a revolver that people can look up for themselves but that you pulled it back as the scene was directed for you to do you say you never pulled the trigger, but the gun went off, you do the ABC interview and it was kind of left there that will not make sense to people if a bullet comes out of a gun they say well then someone fired it,” Cuomo said.

Baldwin replied: “This did not come from me this came from the DA’s office themselves you’re familiar with what fanning a gun is, if you heard of that phrase fanning a gun.”

Cuomo: “Yes, but explain it.”

Baldwin: “So if you pull the hammer back and you don’t lock the hammer, if you pull the hammer back pretty far in old western movies you’d see someone fan the hammer of the gun, the hammer didn’t lock you pulled it back to an extent where it would fire the bullet without you pulling the trigger, without you locking the hammer.

“The man who’s the principal safety officer on the set of the film declared that the gun was safe when he handed it to me, the person who was the principal safety officer of the film declared in front of the entire assemblage this is a cold gun.

“Now, why did he say that if he didn’t know if he hadn’t checked, the point is all of us were told that everything was cool and you can relax and we’re working with a gun that’s safe to rehearse with but he explained it to me effectively that’s exactly what can happen if you pull a hammer back and let it go if there’s a live round see there’s only one question to ask here, who put a live round in the gun that’s it there is no other question to ask.”

Cuomo: “Do you have any suspicion that this could have been a setup?”

Baldwin: “No, no I think that in the beginning for me there was a discussion about what was likely everybody focused on what’s likely someone made up someone was responsible for a horrible accident and then as time went on I began to entertain because of the insistence of the people involved.

“And I, again, I don’t want to get into this detail now but of the insistence of certain people that something else was afoot here I was open-minded to that for a couple of months and was willing to explore those possibilities, and then after exhausting that possibility private investigators things that were information we accessed, we come back to what is likely what is that somebody who was responsible for one situation or one line of responsibility, and the other person like a tandem of the two people one of them or both was negligence.”

Cuomo: “You don’t think anybody was trying to put you in a situation where something terrible was gonna happen that requires so much I mean I am somebody who is perfectly comfortable with conspiracy theories.”
