After 21 people were killed in a school shooting in Uvalade, Texas last week, many went to social media to react to the tragedy.
One social media user, in particular, took a moment to criticize celebrity reactions to gun violence when it is still widely featured in movies. Posting pictures of a well-known scene from the 1983 movie Scarface Where Al PacinoIts character Tony Montana started firing at his rivals, the man tweeted:
Actor: We have gun problem in our country

Okay, a celebrity has decided to give their opinion in a tweet. Who could it be, you might ask? Apparently without anyone else Alec Baldwin. In a deleted comment, the 64-year-old actor allegedly said:
“Many actors have made significant efforts to reduce gun violence in movies.”
While this may be true, Alec is the man holding the gun to the set, who was accidentally shot dead when he was released. Rust Director of Photography Halina Hutchins And injured director Joel Shuja. The 30 Rock Elum, who has been named in multiple cases of the incident, was even confronted with the news of crew members walking away due to security concerns hours before the incident. Needless to say, many Twitter users responded that the producer’s room should have been better read. Now that account is completely offline, so definitely the message went across!
What do you think of his tweet, Perezcious reader? What do you think he should have said? The following comments are harmful).
