Hilaria Baldwin emerged for coffee Saturday morning when she was conned on social media for using her “fake” Spanish accent while distracting reporters Friday so her husband Alec could escape their Greenwich Village pad.
Baldwin was spotted in jeans and a turtleneck, carrying cups of coffee from the Madman Espresso store on University Place as she walked with another woman.
On Friday, she told reporters she would speak to them in the wake of news that Alec will be charged with involuntary manslaughter in the 2021 shooting of “Rust” cameraman Halyna Hutchins.
“On a human level, you know I’m not going to say anything to you. You know that. So please leave my family alone and let all this happen. OK?” Hilaria, with her newborn strapped to her chest, told the assembled journalists.
As she then told reporters to “go home”, Alec snuck out and was later seen smiling as he tried to hide his face as he entered the Film Center Building on Ninth Avenue.
Hilaria was late beamed online for trotting out the slight Spanish accent she sometimes uses during her bait-and-switch with the press. In 2020, her true parentage was revealed to be Hillary Thomas from Massachusetts – and not Hispanic, as her husband once claimed.
“She sounds so, how do you say, authentic,” one snapped, while another mused, “It will never cease to be funny for a white girl from Boston to pretend to be Hispanic.”
“This is one of the longest running LARPing characters in history,” said another tweet, referring to live-action role-playing games where players dress up with props and act out roles.
Hilaria refused to answer questions on Saturday as she came and went, at one point carrying her infant daughter and pushing another of the couple’s seven children in a stroller.
A local employee said she felt sorry for Alec Baldwin.
Massiel Pimentel, who works at the Joey Healy Eyebrow Studio on University Place, where Hilaria is a client, said she recently saw the actor at a local bagel shop and wanted to confront him. She alleged that he scammed her cousin, a taxi driver in Puerto Rico, out of an $80 ride.
“But I saw him and he looked so bad. I think this whole situation is really taking its toll on him, so when I saw him I was like, ‘Let me just leave him alone.’ Because he looks really bad,” she said.
Her cousin, speaking on FaceTime from Puerto Rico, confirmed he wasn’t paid by the actor, but said the incident happened 10 years ago and didn’t mean to give him a hard time.
“He’s in enough trouble with everything that’s going on right now,” he said. “Karma gets you.”
