Alec Baldwin Hits Back Following Backlash Over Comment About The Crown Star Gillian Anderson’s Accent
Alec Baldwin has deleted his Twitter account again following a backlash over a comment he made about Gillian Anderson’s accent.The 30 Rock star responded to a post about The Crown actor  – who is American but played Margaret Thatcher in the latest series of the Netflix hit – “switching accents” when she accepted her Golden Globe last weekend.Earlier in the day, the actor tweeted out a CNN story titled, “Gillian Anderson’s American accent throws some people off.” He added the message, “Switching accents ? That sounds...fascinating”, apparently a reference to his wife Hilaria, who was engulfed in controversy last year after some accused her of faking her Spanish heritage. Alec quit Twitter in January over the matter.In a lengthy video shared on Instagram, the actor announced he had deleted his Twitter account, and whilst he did not mention Gillian by name, he denied he was having a dig.He said: “Of course you can’t do any irony on Twitter. You can’t do any irony in the United States anymore, because the United States is such an uptight, stressed-out place and such an unpleasant place right now.”The 62-year-old said he was a “huge fan” of the X Files star and his comment was intended to “illustrate the point that multicultural expressions of anyone… that’s your business”.He added he had “not meant at all to be offensive” and described Twitter as being filled with “a-holes” and “a lot of haters”. View this post on InstagramA post shared by Alec Baldwin (@alecbaldwininsta)He said: “But I find that, of course, on Twitter, which is where all the a―holes in the United States and beyond go to get their advanced degrees in a―hole-iness, that I had used it as a news aggregator, and I suppose I will do my best to find other places that are similar in their news aggregation in real time and periodicals I like.”He added: “Twitter is one-third interesting posts… one-third tedious, uninteresting, puerile nonsense, and then it’s one-third, or more maybe, just abject hatred and malice and unpleasantness.”Hilaria, a yoga teacher and influencer, was accused of misleading people over her heritage and faking a Spanish accent after it emerged she was born in Boston and was originally named Hillary.The couple, who married in 2012, announced this week they had welcomed a sixth child together.READ MORE:Gillian Anderson Discusses Challenge Of Playing Margaret Thatcher In The CrownThis Is How The Crown's Gillian Anderson And Emma Corrin Were Transformed Into Margaret Thatcher And Princess DianaThe Crown's Gillian Anderson Shares Hilarious Behind-The-Scenes 'Ibble Dibble' Snaps

Meghan Markle Claims Palace Is 'Perpetuating Falsehoods About Us' In New Oprah Clip
Meghan Markle claims the palace is “perpetuating falsehoods about us” in the latest clip from Oprah Winfrey’s upcoming interview with Prince Harry and Duchess of Sussex. In the clip, Oprah asks Meghan, “How do you feel about the palace hearing you speak your truth today?” “I don’t know how they could expect that after all of this time we would still just be silent if there is an active role that The Firm is playing in perpetuating falsehoods about us,” Meghan says in the new teaser.“And if that comes with risk of losing things, I mean ― there’s a lot that has been lost already,” the duchess added. “There’s a lot that’s been lost already.”CBS Presents Oprah with Meghan and Harry: A Primetime Special this Sunday at 8/7c. #OprahMeghanHarrypic.twitter.com/iKFjiVP3IH— CBS (@CBS) March 4, 2021Meghan’s legal team revealed last July that the duchess felt “unprotected” by the palace during her pregnancy with son Archie, according to court documents from the royal’s lawsuit against Associated Newspapers.Her legal team also said the Suits TV series alum was rendered unable to defend herself from “hundreds of thousands of inaccurate articles” due to Kensington Palace’s media policy. The new clip promoting Oprah’s prime-time special with the royals comes on the heels of a report in The Times, saying that Meghan “humiliated” and “bullied” former staff and personally “drove two personal assistants out of the household and was undermining the confidence of a third staff member” during her time as a senior working member of the royal family. A spokesperson for the Sussexes told HuffPost on Tuesday that “the Duchess is saddened by this latest attack on her character.” “She is determined to continue her work building compassion around the world and will keep striving to set an example for doing what is right and doing what is good,” the spokesperson added. In a response to The Times piece, a Sussex spokesperson called the report “a calculated smear campaign based on misleading and harmful misinformation” and connected the timing of the allegations to the upcoming interview with Oprah. “It’s no coincidence that distorted several-year-old accusations aimed at undermining The Duchess are being briefed to the British media shortly before she and The Duke are due to speak openly and honestly about their experience of recent years,” the spokesperson said.On Wednesday, Buckingham Palace released an unprecedented statement saying that it was “very concerned about allegations in The Times following claims made by former staff of The Duke and Duchess of Sussex.” “Accordingly our HR team will look into the circumstances outlined in the article. Members of staff involved at the time, including those who have left the Household, will be invited to participate to see if lessons can be learned,” the statement said. “The Royal Household has had a Dignity at Work policy in place for a number of years and does not and will not tolerate bullying or harassment in the workplace.” Meghan and Harry’s interview with Oprah will air in the US on Sunday night, airing in the UK on Monday at 9pm on ITV.READ MORE:Buckingham Palace To Investigate Bullying Claims Made Against Meghan MarkleHow To Watch Meghan Markle And Prince Harry's Oprah Winfrey Interview In The UKPrince Harry Says He Feared ‘History Repeating Itself’ In First Look At Oprah Winfrey Interview
