A Very Bad Idea: Alec Baldwin to Interview Woody Allen on Instagram Live Tuesday Morning


I can’t think of a worse idea than this one.

Alec Baldwin says that he will interview Woody Allen on Instagram Live, Tuesday at 10:30am.

Where to begin? Alec, although not intentionally, literally KILLED someone this year. He’s being sued by the family of Halyna Hutchins, whose 10 year old son is now without a mother. He’s being sued by many others, as well. The case is still under investigation. Baldwin has no concept of his own public image at this point.

Woody has just published a book of stories called “Zero Gravity.” It’s very funny and everyone should read it. But promoting it in this fashion is not the right look for anyone. You may not like Woody Allen, but he did not molest anyone and that whole debate has become outrageously distorted beyond any reason.

I hope this is cancelled.
