On Dec. 27, Schumer addressed social media buzz that Baldwin was faking her Spanish accent.
In a since-deleted post, Amy posed in a large hat and sunglasses with the caption: “I get it. I went to Spain a couple times and loved it too.”
Her husband, Alec Baldwin, quickly posted to social media to defend Hilaria, saying:
“There’s things that have been said lately about people that I love, that I care about deeply, which are ridiculous. I mean, just ridiculous.”
Hilaria also addressed the comments — which alleged she went by the name of Hillary while growing up in Massachusetts — in a video message.
“If I’ve been speaking a lot of Spanish, I tend to mix them and if I’m speaking more English…then I mix that,” she shared. “It’s one of those things that’s always been a little bit, I’ve been a little insecure about.”
“I try to speak more clearly in each language,” she added. “I think that that’s something that I should try to do but sometimes I mess it up and it’s not something that I’m like, playing at, so I want that to be very, very, very clear.”
Baldwin went on to ask those who cast a judgemental eye to leave her alone. “There’s nothing wrong with me and I’m not going to apologize for the amount of time that I spent in two countries,” she said.
“And I’m not going to apologize for the fact that I speak two languages and I’m not going to apologize for the fact that I have two versions of my name.”
Just days ago, on Dec. 22, Hilaria was under fire after her recent photo incident with Schumer. Amy jokingly posted a photo of Hilaria and used it as her own holiday card.
“Gene and I wanted to wish everyone a happy holiday season,” Amy captioned the repost. “Enjoy it with whatever family members are talking to you this year.”
Hilaria admitted that while she did not understand the joke she was not upset with Amy. She also posted a video addressing body shamers and celebrating body inclusivity.
After Amy apologized Hilaria quickly replied, “Girl, don’t even apologize! You always make me laugh [heart emoji]. My only intentions were to address some of the not so namaste behavior some people went running wild with after. You don’t need to take responsibility for their actions. Much love and light xoxo.”
