Hollywood doesn’t like when actors speak their minds.
They want conformity and agreement with radical, far-left beliefs.
If you go against the progressive cult you get cancelled, blacklisted, picked on and left in the gutter to be spit on.
Want to be in a big budget film again or win a fancy award after showing you’re not a liberal? Good luck.
But Actor Alec Baldwin really doesn’t care. Baldwin has always been a bit of a wild card, and he showed that recently by taking on cancel culture and making it clear just how much disgust he has for it.
‘Cancel Culture is Like a Forest Fire’
Baldwin has had to deal with criticism of his wife Hilaria Baldwin, who ended up being exposed for basically pretending to be more Latina than she is and putting on a Latina accent when she grew up in a very White home in Massachusetts.
I’ll be honest: it’s a pretty sensational story and the fact that she grew up Hillary, not Hilaria, is something that people are obviously going to find pretty hilarious. More liberals pretending to be ultra-woke.
But Baldwin may be a liberal for the most part, but he’s not a guy who enjoys having his wife crapped on 24/7 by the media in their woke agenda for her not being enough of a minority. That’s why he took to Twitter recently to slam cancel culture.
“Cancel culture is like a forest fire in constant need of fuel. Functioning objectively. No prejudice. No code. Just destroy. The deserving and the undeserving alike,” Baldwin said.
Just days earlier, Baldwin had slammed the hypocrisy of the US Congress.
There appears to be a zero tolerance policy for bad behavior everywhere except where it matters most: the US Congress.

Baldwin’s History of Speaking Up
Several months ago, Baldwin also sounded off against cancel culture, going on a 15-minute rant on Instagram, so this isn’t the first time.
“I do have a few people going at me for defending people who have been accused of crimes… Well, I’m not defending someone who is guilty of something. I’m choosing to defend someone who has not been proven guilty of something,” Baldwin said.
It is believed that he’s referring to Woody Allen and NY Governor Andrew Cuomo, both of whom he feels were unfairly accused.
He’s 63 and his wife Hilaria is 37, but they appear to certainly be in love, and Baldwin said he’s sick of unproven allegations being used against powerful men to accuse them of sex crimes and bring them down.
“I think my last message went on too long. What I was saying is I think that the cancel culture is getting out of hand. There are people who deserved to be punished for what they have done, but not everyone should be punished in the same way,” Baldwin said.
Do you agree?
