Alec Baldwin Under Fire for Saying Black People Love Him Because He’s Anti-Trump

Alec Baldwin is catching a lot of flak for the controversial comments he made during a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter.

It all started when the actor and show host told the magazine that he encountered a fan on a New York City street, who complimented him on his SNL impersonation of President Donald Trump.

“I don’t know how to say this and I don’t want to get it wrong either, because everything is a minefield of bombs going off,” Baldwin told THR in reference to the encounter. “But ever since I played Trump, black people love me. They love me. Everywhere I go, black people go crazy. I think it’s because they’re most afraid of Trump. I’m not going to paint every African-American person with the same brush, but a significant number of them are sitting there going, ‘This is going to be bad for black folks.'”

This has since stirred heated reactions from folks on Twitter.

Check out some of them below.

Baldwin had yet to react to the outrage as at press time.
