Candace Owens and Alec Baldwin’s daughter Ireland had a very public feud that turned nasty before delivering a shocking truce between the two at the end.
Candace said: “Alec Baldwin spent 4 years dedicated to painting Donald Trump and his supporters as evil murderers. What has happened to Alec would be an example of poetic Justice if it weren’t for the actual innocent people that were murdered by him. Pray for their families.
“Will correct my tweet to say Alec Baldwin *killed* someone—not murdered someone, as murder carries a different legal definition.”
Ireland Baldwin said: “You are the most disgusting, hateful, cancerous human being I’ve ever come across. Regardless of your foul opinions most of the time, the fact that you would disrespect the life of a woman who was accidentally and tragically killed… Shame on you.”
“Yup… I’m going to go ahead and take that Instagram break. I am ashamed to [breathe] the same air as this woman.”
She also took a swipe at Jack Posobiec, a reporter for Human Events and a former host at OANN. She said:
“You and that scumbag @jackmposobiec don’t have a clue what you’re even talking about and you usually never do. I respect people’s opinions… but if you support these absolute clowns… people don’t follow me any more. I beg.”
“If you simply don’t RESPECT people… then unfollow me,” she went on. “It’s so simple. Unfollow me if you don’t support trans rights. LGBTQ rights as a whole. Human rights. But reeeeaaaalllyyy hit that unfollow button if you’re trying to defame my father and tweet such horrific statements about this tragic situation. It breaks my heart that people are so hatefully ignorant…”
But a few hours later it appears instead of shouting at each other they spoke and found common ground.
“Ireland Baldwin is in my DMs because I don’t feel bad for her psychopathic father,” Owens wrote. “Feel bad for the victim, not Alec. He has always been a predator in Hollywood who was given a pass.”
Ireland shared a screenshot of an exchange in which she told Owens: “Thank you for taking the time to have a real conversation. Have a peaceful evening.”
“No problem. Same to you,” Owens said. Ireland responded: “Some times having an actual conversation can go a long way…”
Legal scholar Jonathan Turley said Baldwin could be criminally charged in the fatal shooting because Baldwin was also a producer of the movie. He wrote:
“New Mexico has a provision that allows “involuntary manslaughter” charges for “the commission of a lawful act which might produce death in an unlawful manner or without due caution and circumspection.” If there was a pattern of neglect, including prior discharges from these prop weapons, the producers could be charged with involuntary manslaughter. Such a charge is a fourth-degree felony in New Mexico, with a penalty of 18 months jail time and up to $5,000 in fines.
“The difficulty for criminal defense attorneys in dealing with such charges is that they do not require “specific intent.” Given prior deaths from prop guns (as with Brandon Lee in the movie “The Crow”), the danger of a fatal mistake was foreseeable. However, such charges are rare and unlikely in this case absent stronger evidence of knowledge or involvement by Baldwin in the preparation or handling of these props.
“The most likely liability for Baldwin would stem from civil liability in the form of a wrongful death action. Indeed, the question is not whether but when the first torts lawsuit will be filed.
“In the end, the liability may be delayed but will likely be considerable. The attorneys for the production company are likely to move quickly to seek settlements of civil claims, particularly with the family,” he wrote.
