The tragedy happened on October 22, but only now Alec Baldwin is finally ripe to speak frankly about the death of Galina Hutchins and about everything that preceded the drama on the set.

“The trigger was not released, I did not pull the trigger. I would never point a gun at anyone or pull the trigger. Someone inserted a combat bullet into the weapon, which should not have been on the site, “Alec said in an interview with ABC , not holding back sobs.
Public opinion on Baldwin’s remarks was fundamentally divided. Some say that Alec simply did not follow safety precautions, while others defend the famous actor.
