A Huge actor was on set when he the prop gun went off and shot/ killed the videographer and also shot the director. The titles of all the journal articles that are being published sound like he is the bad guy. When really no one knows yet what has actually happened. As terrible as this event is, he is going to have to live with the fact that he killed someone on set for the rest of his life. Is it right that journalists are titling their posts to make him seem guilty? Or is he really just the victim? Here are some examples of titles being used… “Alec Baldwin was aiming the gun at the director when the gun discharged”. “Will Alec Baldwin be held liable?”. Alec Baldwin has to live with this for the rest of his life although it was an accident. There are so many other gun prop accidents that happen.
