Alec Baldwin is taking something seriously to say that blacks "love him" because of his parodies of Donald Trump in Saturday night live.
In a cover interview with The Hollywood Reporter, the reporter describes a meeting between fans between Baldwin, 60, and a young man named Tyrone, who approached the street actor in New York City to congratulate him on his interpretation of the president.
"Although he's waving and pointing and causing something from a scene, Baldwin, often irritable, does not care a bit," THRWrite Lacey Rose. "In fact, he calls Tyrone and the two start to crack each other, it's hard to know who is enjoying the other more."
Baldwin later admitted that he receives this type of response "without ceasing".
"I do not know how to say this and I do not want to be wrong, because everything is a minefield of bombs exploding, but since I played Trump, the blacks love me," she said, still "buzzing" from the exchange, according to Rose. . Wherever I go, blacks go crazy. I think it's because they are more afraid of Trump. I'm not going to paint all African-Americans with the same brush, but a significant number of them are sitting there, "This is going to be bad for black people."
Almost immediately after the article was published online on Wednesday, Baldwin encountered a backlash on Twitter.
"Someone should tell you that now it sounds as if LITERALLY was becoming Trump by saying this FALSE!" other read tweet
"Boy, if not … .. Alec ruins everything by opening his mouth", someone else tweeted. "The reason he plays a furious and colorless narcissist so well is because he is one."
"So he's implying that blacks love him because he made fun of someone he thinks he's afraid of, is that racist, that feels racist," said another person.
"Good god," tweeted another person, adding the hashtag #WhitePrivilege.
