While the investigation continues into the circumstances of the tragedy at Bonanza Creek Ranch on October 21, where Halyna Hutchins was fatally shot and director Joel Souza injured in the shoulder by actor Alec Baldwin during a rehearsal for his upcoming film Rust, actor Alec Baldwin's wife, Hilaria, posted several photos on Sunday of the family's Halloween celebration.
In her caption, Hilaria detailed that the couple had rallied to lift the spirits of their six children in the midst of the shooting-related investigation. Parenting through this has been an intense experience she wrote on Instagram. Today we rallied to give them a vacation. Last minute costumes a bit of a scramble…
This publication posted 10 days after the death of the director of photography of the film was considered for many, as particularly, insensitive.
The actor and his wife faced backlash on Twitter as one user, Leigh Daly, wrote, @AlecBaldwin, did your wife actually post Halloween photos on Instagram!!! So inappropriate.
Another social media user pointed out that Halyna's young son, Andros, would still be mourning his mother, saying, Baldwin kids should definitely enjoy Halloween. This year, however, #hilariabaldwin should have kept their festivities (and herself) off social media. Halyna's son didn't get to enjoy the vacation. Celebrate without posting, Hillary. It's literally the least you can do.
However, several celebrities commented on the post, expressing their love for the Baldwins and offering their support during this difficult time.
