took to Instagram on Wednesday, March 3, in a video and said that he was a “huge fan” of without naming her and did not mean to offend her but was noting how if people are influenced by different cultures “that’s your business” after his wife, Hilaria Baldwin, was in an accent controversy of her own.

“I just wrote, ‘Oh, that’s interesting.’ And of course, you can’t do any irony on Twitter—you can’t do any irony in the United States anymore because the United States is such [an] uptight, stressed-out place and such an unpleasant place right now,” the 62-year-old said.  

“But I find that, of course, on Twitter, which is where all the a**holes in the United States and beyond go to get their advanced degrees in a**hole-iness, that I had used it as a news aggregator, and I suppose I will do my best to find other places that are similar in their news aggregation in real time and periodicals I like.

“Twitter is one-third interesting posts… one-third tedious, uninteresting, puerile nonsense, and then it’s one-third, or more maybe, just abject hatred and malice and unpleasantness,” the Boss Baby star described the platform. 

“The problem with Twitter is, there was a lot of haters.”

Switching accents ? That sounds…fascinating,” Baldwin added when he retweeted a CNN story titled “ Anderson’s American accent throws some people off,” as The Crown actress often performs with a British accent. 

Although Anderson was born in Chicago, she lived in London for ten years.

He added that he is grateful to his fans on Instagram who have embraced him and his family but reportedly responded “You should shut the f*ck up and mind your own business,” in a since-deleted comment to an Instagram user who questioned how they had another baby so soon after welcoming their youngest son six months ago.

“Why don’t you both stop constantly posting and begging for clickbait. Just raise you 100 children in private,” the user said. 

In December, Hilaria was accused of faking her Spanish accent and of not being honest about her heritage. 

“The way I’ve spoken about myself and my deep connection to two cultures could have been better explained—I should have been more clear and I’m sorry,” Hilaria said on February 5.

Many believed that Hilaria had been born in Majorca before she confirmed that she was born in Boston but was raised with both Spanish and American cultures. 

“Because, basically, they’re not very smart,” reportedly replied to an Instagram user who asked why anyone would care that Hilaria changed her name from Hillary after the pair welcomed their sixth child

“Americans are people who know less about how to live a peaceful, healthy life than most of the civilized world.”
