Actor Alec Baldwin has used Twitter to offer some words of comfort to under-fire comedian Kathy Griffin.
Griffin faced a backlash this week after she posed with a bloody mask depicting President Donald Trump’s decapitated head. At an emotional press conference on Friday, she slammed members of the Trump family for subsequently bullying her on social media.
Soon after, Baldwin tweeted Griffin his support:
“Kathy… fuck them. Fuck them all,” wrote Baldwin, who has also faced Trump’s repeated wrath over his potrayal of him on “Saturday Night Live.”
“No 1 believes u meant 2 threaten Trump,” he added. “Trump is such a senile idiot, all he has is Twitter fights.”
Baldwin also recalled a similar backlash he faced in 1998, when he sparked outrage for joking about killing the now late Rep. Henry Hyde (R-Il) on “Late Night With Conan O’Brien.”
