Alec Baldwin, star of the recently released movie ‘Rust’, was charged with manslaughter on Tuesday for his role in a shooting that occurred on set. The news has caused a stir in Hollywood, with many celebrities and organizations speaking out in his defense.
Joy Behar, co-host of the popular talk show ‘The View’, suggested that the charges against Baldwin might be politically motivated. “He’s a target for Republicans,” she said.
The Screen Actors Guild also defended Baldwin, with a spokesperson saying that the charges seemed like a “pretty surprising move”.
Bloomberg reported that the manslaughter charge against Baldwin was “a stretch”, and CNN published an opinion piece that argued the same.
It appears that the majority of Hollywood is standing behind Baldwin, and it remains to be seen how the case will unfold.
