The actor’s wife Hilaria Baldwin is the subject of controversy after a Twitter user fired off a since-deleted tweet that read, “You have to admire Hilaria Baldwin’s commitment to her decade long grift where she impersonates a Spanish person.”
Hilaria was born in Boston, Mass., and not in Mallorca, Spain as she had previously implied.
Now, the Twitter user has spoken to the New York Times but explained that she felt compelled to do so anonymously.

According to the outlet, she made the request because “she said she was scared that Mr. Baldwin … would punch her.”
Reps for Baldwin did not immediately respond to Fox News’ request for comment. A rep for Baldwin declined to comment when reached by The Times.
Meanwhile, of her decision to speak about Hilaria, the woman told The Times: “We’re all bored and it’s just seemed so strange to me that no one had ever come out and said it, especially for someone who gets so much media attention.”
As for Alec Baldwin, 62, he has, in recent years, become known for a fiery temper.
