Alec Baldwin said Wednesday black people “love” him ever since he began impersonating President Trump and revealed he was nearly accused of sexual misconduct in the midst of the #MeToo movement.
In an interview with Hollywood Reporter, Baldwin admitted everything is a “minefield of bombs going off” before proceeding with his controversial comment on playing Trump.
“I don’t know how to say this and I don’t want to get it wrong either, because everything is a minefield of bombs going off, Baldwin said. “But ever since I played Trump, black people love me. They love me.”
“Everywhere I go, black people go crazy. I think it’s because they’re most afraid of Trump. I’m not going to paint every African-American person with the same brush, but a significant number of them are sitting there going, ‘This is going to be bad for black folks,'” Baldwin added.
