‘Why did you shoot that woman?’: Alec Baldwin berated by ‘ambush interviewer’ in coffee shop

Alec Baldwin smacked the phone out of the hands of an “ambush interviewer” after she berated him over the fatal Rust shooting and the Israel-Hamas conflict while he was in a New York coffee shop.

The actor, 66, was confronted by a content creator who calls herself “Crackhead Barney”.

“Why did you kill that lady? You killed that lady and got no jail time,” the woman says, appearing to refer to Halyna Hutchins, the cinematographer who died on the set of the western film in 2021 when a gun held by Baldwin discharged a live bullet during rehearsal.

Baldwin, who also served as a producer on the film, is currently set to face trial in July over an involuntary manslaughter charge. The actor has pleaded not guilty.

The Independent contacted Baldwin’s representative for comment.
