33 Funniest Twitter Takes On The Hilaria (Hillary) Baldwin Scandal

Well, well, well. Looks like we've got another scandalous case of cultural grifting. This time the offender is Hilaria Baldwin, who was once known as Hillary Hayward-Thomas until she met her current husband, actor Alec Baldwin. For nearly a decade, Hilaria Baldwin has self-identified as Spanish, claiming that she was born in Mallorca and often appeared on talk shows with a vaguely Spanish accent. In one Today Show video, she even pretends to forget the English word for 'cucumber.' How you say...cringe

The truth came out on December 21st when @lenibriscoe shared their research in a series of tweets showing all the cringey times Baldwin cosplayed as a Spanish person. In reality, Baldwin was born in Boston to American parents, who were also born and raised in Massachusetts but moved to Spain in 2011. A handful of Baldwin's old classmates came forward claiming that she didn't have the accent back at Cambridge School of Weston. The Twitter thread quickly blew up and has since been referenced in a number of publications. The jig is up Hilaria, or should we say, Hillary. When will the Rachel Dolezals and Jessica Krugs of the world ever learn? 

We've collected some of the most hilari-ous tweets and takes on the whole Hilaria saga. Sometimes you just gotta laugh at these crazy ass rich people.

Alec Baldwin decided to step up and reprise his role as Donald Trump on SNL, after Trump once again targeted the show for 'not being funny at all.' Here's a brief exchange we saw between the two on Twitter as well:

Alec Baldwin Totally Looks Like Lou Gehrig

I think Jack Donaghy would approve of this comparison. Then again, we all remember how bad he was at coaching that little league team populated with inner-city youths, so maybe not.
