Hilaria Baldwin has come under fire again for using a fake Spanish accent while taunting photographers.
The Boston native, 39, apologized two years ago for faking a Spanish accent, claiming she grew up with two cultures.
Now she’s under fire again after approaching photographers in New York City to chew them out for taking pictures of her kids.
Hilaria – born Hillary – seemed to revert to her old accent as she dodged questions about her husband’s involuntary manslaughter charge.
The actor, 64, and gunsmith Hannah Gutierrez-Reed, were charged in the death of cameraman Halyna Hutchins for firing the fatal shot on the set of Rust. Baldwin says he will vigorously fight the charges, calling it a “miscarriage of justice.”
His wife approached photographers this week, cut off their questions and said, “I’m going to tell you what I’m going to say, you’re not going to ask me any questions.” I want you to realize that we have seven children, and for you to be here to escort them to school and be there when they come home is not good.
“So on a human level, you know I’m not going to say anything to you. You know that. So please leave my family alone and let it run its course.” Hilaria’s accent became distinctly more European-sounding as her diatribe continued.

Baldwin’s accent emerged after she approached photographers to criticize them for chasing her children as they went to and from school. “Go home because I’m not going to say anything and Alec isn’t going to say anything”
The yoga instructor went on to say that it is “very difficult as a mother to explain” to her children why a crowd of people followed them and asked questions, before reminding them that neither she nor her husband Alec, 64, will ask reply.
“So please go home because I’m not going to say anything and Alec isn’t going to say anything,” she concluded before dodging questions about their lawyers.
While some were sympathetic to her cause, many were “offended” by the return of the accent.
“It’s just more than offensive at this point that she’s continuing with this Spanish accent. Regardless of the chaos of her mind and this situation – you are not Spaniard,” one person wrote on Twitter.
Another wrote, “I love that she’s like “well we used to travel to Spain every year”, ma’am, you lived in BOSTON daily. Boston accents are not simply avoided!’
A woman named Perla wrote, “Hillary needs to end this accent.”
“I saw people feel bad about her being stalked by Dad, which of course is true, but the AAAAAACCENT my GOD. In other words, you’re absolutely right,” one woman wrote.
Another joke, Tony Choi, everyone should look for “a man who is as devoted to you as she is to the bit.”

Ceda Xiong wrote, “It’s her emotional support accent.”
A man named Bradley quipped “she and Austin Butler need some kind of support group for people who can’t turn off the fake voice.”
Another criticized Hilaria – whose real name is Hillary – for “never passing up an opportunity to have a little bit of the spotlight.”
“She didn’t have to give this speech,” one woman, Marielle, wrote.
The influencer had to confess that she was born in Boston and named Hillary after years of claiming that Mallorca was her hometown and that she only arrived in the US at the age of 19.
“My parents raised my brother and me with two cultures, the American and the Spanish, and I really feel like I belong to both cultures,” she said at the time. “The way I’ve spoken about myself and my deep connection to two cultures could have been better explained – I should have been clearer and I’m sorry.
Many scoffed at the yoga instructor for the return of her accent, with one calling it her “emotional support accent.”
“I am proud of the way I was raised, and we are raising our children to share the same love and respect for both of them,” she continued. “Being vulnerable and pushing ourselves to learn and grow is what we built our community on, and I hope to return to the supportive and friendly environment we built together.”
Several former classmates came forward to confirm that Hilaria was indeed raised in Weston, Massachusetts, by American parents without a hint of a foreign accent.
Despite the social persecution Hilaria faces, her husband could even face jail time, and the Santa Fe prosecutor is pretty confident that Alec will be convicted of his charges.
In a post-announcement interview with CNN, she said Baldwin pulled the trigger — and that he ran a “fast and loose set” that was plagued with safety issues.
“There was such a lack of safety and safety standards on that set. There were live rounds on set, they alternated with dummy rounds.
“No one checked them or at least they didn’t check them consistently.
“They somehow got loaded into a gun, handed over to Alec Baldwin, he didn’t check, he didn’t do what he had to do to make sure he was safe or make sure anyone else was safe.

“He pointed the gun at Halyna Hutchins and pulled the trigger,” she said.
She said a “total set of circumstances” led to the decision, adding: “This was a really fast and loose set. And that nobody did their job.’
While it may have been an accident, she said Baldwin “doesn’t get a free pass” because he’s a star.
In a statement, Baldwin’s attorney said: “This decision distorts the tragic death of Halyna Hutchins and represents an appalling miscarriage of justice. Mr. Baldwin had no reason to believe there was a live bullet in the gun—or anywhere else on the movie set.
“He relied on the professionals he worked with to assure him the gun had no live cartridges. We will fight these charges and we will win.”
