Hilaria Baldwin's Recent Post About Her Culture Has The Internet Fuming

It seemed as if the heritage scandal that turned the internet against Hilaria Baldwin was safely behind her. In case you missed it, the mom of six got herself into hot water when she was essentially caught in a lie about where she was born. For about a decade, we were led to believe the yoga instructor was from Spain when in fact, she hails from Boston (via The New York Times). Although Baldwin tried to set the record straight about the scandal, fallout ensued, with the wife of actor Alec Baldwin garnering online scorn for her "grift."

Flash forward to this week, and Baldwin has social media fuming because she couldn't help but go there again. Sharing a photo of her daughter with a piece of artwork to Instagram, the star mom revisited the issue of her culture in the caption. Baldwin noted she visited with her family for the first time in two years due to COVID, and said, "We talked about how we grew up, our languages, our cultures-multi & very valid. We discussed belonging & how there are people who want to deny others their right to belong."

She went on to say, "When you are multi, it can feel hard to belong. You are constantly going back and forth, trying to be more this or more that. You feel you have to explain why you are the way you are, trying to fit into a world of labels when there might not be one that perfectly defines you."

Twitter is over Hilaria Baldwin's post

The lengthy Instagram post went on to see Baldwin saying about her background, "You will never quite fit in because the other parts of you shape and influence all your parts. Nothing inside you can truly exist in a segregated environment."

She also claimed, "We all get to curate our individual expressions of our cultures, languages, who we love, what we believe in, how we dress, present ourselves. This is the right that each person should have. We need to normalize the fact that we are all unique-our culture, languages, sexual orientations, religions, political beliefs are ALLOWED TO BE FLUID."

While the comments to Baldwin's Instagram were largely positive — one has to wonder if she deletes negative comments — Twitter was not having it, with one commenter to the New York Post story about her post snarking, "Co-opting the term 'fluid' to meet her farcical 'multicultural' needs. How convenient."

Another person joked, "Is there a kickstarter where we can donate for the victims?" Someone else commented, "Ohh, the agony of growing up in a wealthy suburb of Boston and attending a private prep school!! Cry me a river!" Finally, another commenter observed, "She's doubling down!"

Time will tell if it pays off.
