Alec Baldwin is under fire saying black people “love” him ever since he played Donald Trump on Saturday Night Live – a gig that earned him an Emmy for his impersonation. 

Baldwin was in the middle of an interview with The Hollywood Reporter when a Black fan came up to him on the street in New York City. The reporter, Lacey Rose, wrote about his moment with the fan, revealing the actor’s excitement and noting his response to those types of encounters. 

“I don’t know how to say this and I don’t want to get it wrong either, because everything is a minefield of bombs going off, but ever since I played Trump, black people love me,” he said. “They love me. Everywhere I go, black people go crazy. I think it’s because they’re most afraid of Trump. I’m not going to paint every African-American person with the same brush, but a significant number of them are sitting there going, ‘This is going to be bad for black folks.’”

People immediately took to Twitter to voice their frustrations. 

Do you think Alec Baldwin was wrong for what he said?

    Unfortunately, I believe Alec. I always try to see the best in black people, but sometimes…..things get cringe worthy. My wife and I were in a store the other day. A black lady spotted a white woman that she hadn’t seen in awhile (my guess). It wasn’t enough for her to scream across the store. She then walks up to her and started raving, “gurl yous so pretty.” My wife squeezed my hand so hard and wouldn’t let go. Then to top off the greeting, she put her hands in this white woman’s hair and started playing with it like a child. So I can see that same black person going up to Alec and saying those things. Somebody might be lying to Alec, but I can see that same somebody saying it. Alec Baldwin is an actor. He’s being paid handsomely to mock that Orange Dotard. People can be so simple. I don’t believe Alec made that up, so I don’t have a problem with his account of interaction.

    • Some of that might be true Ted. What I firmly disagree with him on, was his comment that “They’re (blacks) the ones most afraid of Trump.” I have and will never be afraid of anyone. Especially Trump.
