Ireland Baldwin said she was “triggered” by her dad Alec’s accidental shooting on the set of Rust last month. Cinematographer Halyna Hutchins, 42, died after the 63-year-old actor fired a prop gun on a New Mexico film set.
At the weekend, eight people died and many more were injured due to crowd members being crushed at Travis Scott’s Astroworld Festival where 50,000 people attended in Houston.
Today, Piers Morgan, 56, shared his thoughts on Ireland Baldwin’s post about the tragic event.
American news site Page Six shared Alec’s daughter’s original post on their Twitter page, to which the journalist slammed.
In view of her 681,000 followers, Ireland began by hitting out at people for “spreading misinformation on Twitter and TikTok”.
She then criticised those who she claimed were acting like “armony/stunt coordinations pros” following her dad’s shooting.
“I am heartbroken for the families who lost a loved one. Everyone should feel safe when they’re going to enjoy live music. But it’s not Travis Scott’s fault,” she penned.
The 26-year-old added that the rapper wouldn’t have been able to hear anyone screaming for help while on stage “especially when wearing in-ear monitors”.
She urged people to “do a little research” before “spewing cancel culture b******t”.
Piers commented: “Is there a more tone deaf family in America than the Baldwins?”
Many of his eight million followers flocked to his post to share their thoughts.
Shel wrote: “Wow. The world really is finished, isn’t it?”
Another penned: “What has she said that’s wrong?”

John Inwood added: “Think she is responding to stuff so maybe a lot of people tone deaf here.”
Following backlash to her messages, the model has since clarified a few of her points.
Ireland said she was in no means defending Travis but insisted he could’ve handled the situation better.
The model added her opinion came from false stories about the singer, one of which claimed he had “planned” the incident.
“I was personally triggered because of recent misinformation that spread from the tragic event that took place on my father’s movie set,” she penned.
“There are absolutely no parallels to be drawn between these tragedies other than there are people whose entire job is to keep somebody safe.”
Ireland believes there are “so many people to be blamed for something this catastrophic to happen”.
In her final post, she told fans “there is a lot to be learned from this”.
“Before I go, you’re wasting your time calling me names. I feel the same as you do.
“I simply wish that people thought before they placed blame or created theories.
“And if Travis Scott was aware of what was happening, the truth always has a way of coming out.”
Alec’s daughter added she will not be commenting on “anything on the internet again”.
