Hollywood actor Alec Baldwin is the latest celebrity to rage against the cancel culture, describing it as a “forest fire in constant need of fuel.”
On Friday, Alec Baldwin tweeted his disdain for cancel culture, saying that its voracious appetite comes for “the deserving and undeserving alike.” He also appeared to refer to cancel culture in a tweet earlier this week in which he stated that “there appears to be a zero tolerance policy for bad behavior everywhere” except in Congress.
There appears to be a zero tolerance policy for bad behavior everywhere except where it matters most: the US Congress.

Cancel culture is like a forest fire in constant need of fuel. Functioning objectively. No prejudice. No code.
Just destroy. The deserving and the undeserving alike.

Baldwin’s criticisms come just a few months after his wife, Hilaria Baldwin, became the target of cancel culture after it was revealed that she does not have Spanish ancestry, as she had frequently claimed in the past.
Alec Baldwin has experience with the wrath of the cancel culture mob. Back in 2013, he was accused of using a homophobic slur when confronting a photographer in New York, which he denied. Following the incident, the star’s MSNBC talk show was canceled.
The actor is also one of a small group of celebrities who have spoken out in support of Woody Allen following accusations of child molestation leveled by Mia Farrow and her daughter Dylan.
Baldwin has left Twitter several times only to return. His most recent departure occurred in March, when the cancel mob attacked him for commenting on actress Gillian Anderson’s “switching accents,” which he compared to the controversy surrounding his wife.
Couldn’t happen to a nicer guy…
