Friday, June 28, 2013

19th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards - ArrivalsALEC Baldwin has had enough of Twitter and has de-activated his account following a rage-fuelled rant over allegations that his wife was tweeting during old friend James Gandolfini’s funeral on Thursday.


The couple had attended the funeral to pay their respects to the Sopranos legend in New York, after which online reports emerged that suggested that Alec’s partner Hilaria had been using twitter during the service.


At first, Baldwin tried to be the bigger man about the situation, simply tweeting: “Someone wrote that my wife was tweeting at a funeral. Hey. That’s not true. But I’m gonna tweet at your funeral”.


However, later on, he returned to his Twitter account to express how he really felt about the reports.


“My wife and I attend a funeral to pay our respects to an old friend… How much of this s**t are people supposed to take? With these f**king blatant lies every day. My wife did not use her phone, in any capacity, at our friend’s funeral. Now, f**k this Twitter + good luck to all of you who know the truth.”


He then deleted his page.


Hilaria, when speaking about the incident explained: “When someone tweets something at a certain time, and you retweet it later, it posts the time the first person tweeted.”
