Alec Baldwin’s attempts to skate in deadly on-set shooting saga just took the most shameless turn yet

Alec Baldwin backed himself into a corner after the horrific shooting incident.

He refuses to take responsibility for the shooting death of a crewmember.

Alec Baldwin’s attempts to skate in the deadly on-set shooting saga just took the most shameless turn yet.

Alec Baldwin still has to answer for the shooting death of cinematographer Halyna Hutchins during the filming of the western Rust.

Baldwin had the gun in his hand pointed at Hutchins, but still claims he never pulled the trigger.

Firearms experts say his story does not make any sense at all, and it certainly does not explain why he had a loaded gun in his hand.

Baldwin was not only responsible as the actor in possession of the weapon, but he was a producer on the film.

Crewmembers have sued Baldwin for negligence, and he still could face criminal charges.

But Baldwin is attempting to win in the court of public opinion and said he was meeting with spiritual advisers to help him cope with the ordeal.

“The one thing I do want to consider very carefully in this coming year and really push myself is in terms of trying to not allow the negativity in my life to affect me. I’ve been having some very interesting phone calls with some very interesting people who I will not name but some of them rather well-known people who deal in all kinds of behavioral, philosophical, religious, spiritual, meditation, all kinds of ways to attain a state of mind where you really short circuit all of the negative in your life,” Baldwin’s lengthy message on Instagram began.

Throughout the entire process, Baldwin has been very careful not to incriminate himself by accepting blame.

In his initial Twitter message, he did not take responsibility.

He retweeted a New York Times article that absolved him of guilt.

During an interview with ABC News’s George Stephanopoulos, he said he never pulled the trigger and didn’t even know Hutchins had been shot.

And in his Instagram post, Baldwin repeated the standard “mistakes were made” statement to acknowledge something happened without accepting blame.

Baldwin stated, “I’ve had more people who have been kind and thoughtful and generous in spirit than I’ve had people who are malignant about the death of Halyna Hutchins…I’m not afraid to say that, to couch it in some euphemism. Somebody died very tragically. I’ve gotten so much goodwill from people. It’s just incredible. And a kind of alarming amount of the other stuff.”

“Somebody died very tragically” is textbook deflection.

Baldwin has a reputation as a surly guy, so his public plea could be falling on deaf ears.
