Alec Baldwin ‘violated’ rules and ‘played make believe’ with a gun, Rust shooting trial hears | Ents & Arts News

Alec Baldwin has made headlines once again, this time for his involvement in the tragic Rust shooting incident. During the trial, it was revealed that Baldwin had violated safety rules and “played make believe” with a gun on set.

The Rust shooting occurred on October 21, 2021, when Baldwin was rehearsing a scene for the film. During the rehearsal, Baldwin was handed a prop gun that he was told was not loaded. However, when he pulled the trigger, the gun fired a live round, killing cinematographer Halyna Hutchins and injuring director Joel Souza.

During the trial, it was revealed that Baldwin had violated safety rules by pointing the gun directly at the camera, which is a serious breach of protocol on a film set. Additionally, witnesses testified that Baldwin had been “playing make believe” with the gun, pretending to shoot at the camera and making gestures as if he were firing a real weapon.

The revelations from the trial have sparked outrage and disbelief among fans and industry professionals alike. Many are questioning how such a tragic incident could have happened, especially on a set where safety protocols are supposed to be strictly enforced.

Baldwin has maintained his innocence, claiming that he never intended to harm anyone and that he was following the instructions given to him by the crew. However, the evidence presented in court suggests otherwise, painting a picture of a reckless and irresponsible actor who failed to take the necessary precautions when handling a firearm.

As the trial continues, more details are sure to emerge about what really happened on that fateful day on the set of Rust. Regardless of the outcome, one thing is clear: the tragic consequences of Baldwin’s actions have forever changed the lives of those involved, and the film industry as a whole.
