The 62-year-old actor took to Twitter to call out to social media users who want to “destroy the unworthy and deserving”.
In an impassioned post, he wrote: “Canceling cultivation is like a forest fire that constantly needs fuel. Operate objectively. No prejudice. No code.
Call for cancellation culture: Alec Baldwin, 62, once again criticized the concept of cancellation culture for its relentless nature, taking to Twitter to call on social media users who hold people in power responsible for their past actions; the star is seen in 2019
Tweet ‘Canceling cultivation is like a forest fire in constant need of fuel. Operate objectively. No prejudice. No code ”, he wrote in a passionate message on the platform.
“Destroy. The deserving and the undeserving, ”added the 30 Rock star.
Thursday night he tweeted: “There appears to be a zero tolerance policy for bad behavior everywhere except where it matters most: the US Congress. “
The sharp post comes months after his wife Hilaria’s legacy came into question when a social media thread pointed to inconsistencies in the stories she had told the media about her upbringing.
A number of her childhood peers have stated that she grew up in Boston as Hillary Hayward-Thomas and did not speak with a Spanish accent during those years.
She was seen in a clip for the Today 2015 show seemingly forgetting about the world’s “cucumber” in a kitchen segment, which became a social media focal point as the scandal contained headlines.
Controversy: The sharp post comes months after his wife Hilaria’s legacy came into question when a social media thread pointed to inconsistencies in the stories she had told the media about her upbringing; the couple appear in 2016
She told the New York Times of the scandal, “I’m not doing anything wrong, and I think there’s a difference between hiding and creating a border. “
“I was born in Boston. I spent time in Boston and Spain. My family now lives in Spain. I moved to New York when I was 19 and have lived here ever since, ”she told the newspaper. “For me, I feel like I spent 10 years sharing this story over and over again. And now, it seems that is not enough.
Hilaria apologized on Instagram for misleading her followers, saying on social media: “The way I talked about myself and my deep connection to two cultures could have been better explained – I could have had to be clearer and I’m sorry. “
“I am proud of the way I was raised and we are raising our children to share the same love and respect for both.

In March, Alec posted a 14-minute video rant on Instagram, denouncing the cancellation culture and defending due process amid allegations of sexual misconduct made to New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo and Woody Allen.
He lashed out at social media users – this time targeting those who want to “cancel” famous men based on unproven allegations.
Although he didn’t mention any names specifically, Baldwin seemed to refer to both Cuomo and Allen.
He started the clip by saying, “A few people blame me for defending people accused of crimes… well, I’m not defending someone who is guilty of something. I choose to stand up for someone who has not been proven guilty of something.
Not the first time: In March, Alec posted a 14-minute video rant on Instagram, denouncing the cancellation culture and defending due process amid allegations of sexual misconduct to New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo and Woody Allen; they are pictured together in 2011
Cuomo has been accused of sexual harassment by numerous women, while Allen has been accused of sexually assaulting his adopted daughter, Dylan Farrow.
Baldwin told his supporters that immediately convicting such men without evidence was an example of a culture of cancellation.
“The cancellation culture thing accelerated during COVID. They [people] have a lot of free time… They want to access their computer and they want to face people like me and they want to say all the horrible things you can imagine about standing up for someone who has been charged with a crime, ‘ he said.
“COVID has exacerbated all that is bad in our society. People are angry and bitter. They are screwed ”.
Baldwin said he would no longer defend those who had been found guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.
“If it was proven beyond a reasonable doubt that this person was guilty, I would certainly be willing to change my mind and even apologize to the victims,” the star said. ,
“I am all in favor of tough laws against people who harass or sexually abuse, but it has to be proven.
Alec clearly has a love-hate relationship with Twitter. He left the social media platform several times this year, as well as in 2017, 2014, 2012 and 2011.
Also in March, he shared a 10-minute Instagram rant after deleting his Twitter account.
He claimed that Twitter “is where all the a ** holes in the United States and beyond go to earn their graduate degrees in ** holiness.”
He added, “The problem with Twitter is that Twitter is a lot of haters. “
