Actress Janet Hubert blames Trump supporters for giving actor Alec Baldwin the loaded weapon that he used to accidentally kill a camerawoman.
Baldwin fired a prop gun that accidentally killed Halyna Hutchins and injured a director on the set of his low-budget independent film, "Rust," on Thursday.
A 24-year-old, non-unionized armorer with no experience, was given the assignment of handing the prop gun to Baldwin.
The Sante Fe, New Mexico Sheriff's Office investigated the shooting and no charges are expected.
However, Hubert took to Twitter on Wednesday to blame a Trump supporter for the tragic accident.
"Am I crazy, but my first thought was Baldwin was given this gun on purpose from someone to get back at him for his Trump impersonations? I have never seen prop guns sitting out on set EVER Then to photograph his pain and give it to the press! Hmmmm, so very heartless, TRUMPERS?"
Baldwin was a vocal Trump hater who frequently impersonated the former President on Saturday Night Live while Trump was in office.
Other Trump-hating conspiracy theorists on Hubert's timeline agreed with her.
I wouldn't put it passed them. Not even 12 hrs in and they were calling for manslaughter charges against Alec and creating false news reports

I agree. It was a set up against Alec

Judging by the absolute glee of some of his supporters in the midst of this awful tragedy, it would not surprise me.

It sounds so plausible. It's a tragedy and someone needs to be held accountable. I can't imagine how he must feel knowing that the actions of another person caused him to take a life.

I'm a Trump supporter, but if fit were me, I'd never do such a thing to get back at him or his "impersonations." Although he is a great actor, I thought his "impersonations" stunk.
