Alec Baldwin has been keeping a low profile after shooting and killing a crewmember on a film project.
But he recently emerged from his self-imposed exile.
And Baldwin commented on one shocking incident that left people speechless.
Former NFL player Brendan Langley got charged with simple assault after a disturbing brawl with an airline worker at an airport in Newark, New Jersey.
It’s unclear who or what started the fight, but the airline worker was fired for his role in the embarrassing incident.

The fight swiftly went viral, and garnered a lot of commentary, including from Alec Baldwin.
The Hollywood actor posted on social media, “The guy working at the airport is the victim. He came to work to do a job. The other guy, with his big mouth, is guilty of work place abuse, where people come to work with an expectation of safety, even civility. This a**hole who hit this guy should be put on a no fly list.”
The irony of Baldwin lecturing about an “expectation of safety” was too much for people to bear considering Baldwin is currently under investigation for his role in the accidental shooting death of cinematographer Halyna Hutchins during the filming of the western Rust.
TMZ tweeted, “Alec Baldwin is weighing in on workplace safety — not on a film set — but at the airport, where a brutal beatdown occurred between a passenger and a United Airlines employee.”
Another user tweeted:
“Still roaming free:
Hillary Clinton and Alec Baldwin.
Still in prison:
Jan 6 protestors.”
Hillary Clinton may not be free for long if Special Counsel John Durham gets to the bottom of his Russiagate hoax investigation that is heating up.
Another Twitter user posted, “[I don’t know] why Alec Baldwin speaking on someone getting beat up in an airport when he just…nevermind.”
Hollywood stars are not known for being attuned to what the average person thinks, but it’s quite absurd for Baldwin to be talking when he’s facing several civil suits, and criminal charges are not even off the table.
Recently, Baldwin posted an odd social media message suggesting he had been exonerated, but New Mexico investigators quickly threw cold water on that notion.
State OSHA investigators explained, “Through our investigation, we determined that Rust Production’s failures were both serious and wilful. To this end, we issued the maximum possible fine of $136,793 to the company…While this concludes our OSHA investigation into this matter, I understand law enforcement is continuing its criminal investigation.”
Baldwin should probably get his own house in order before commenting on workplace safety matters elsewhere.
