Actor Alec Baldwin is facing involuntary manslaughter charges for a fatal shooting that occurred on the set of his upcoming movie, Rust. Despite the charges, Baldwin is expected to continue filming the movie.
The controversy has been met with mixed reactions from Hollywood. Mickey Rourke declared that there is “no way in hell” Baldwin should be charged, while others have called for stricter gun safety protocols on film sets.
The Independent has argued that the controversy over Baldwin and Rust dangerously misses the point about gun safety. Bloomberg has also argued that the manslaughter charge is a stretch.
