Amy Schumer Weighs In On Hilaria Baldwin's Accent Controversy

Amy Schumer is poking fun at the controversy surrounding Hilaria Baldwin.

On Dec. 27, the comedian—who recently made headlines with her Hilaria-inspired holiday card—took to Instagram to seemingly react to claims on social media stating that the yoga instructor is faking her Spanish accent. In a since-deleted post, Amy could be seen posing in a large hat and sunglasses alongside the caption, “I get it. I went to Spain a couple times and loved it too.” She also added a cucumber emoji.

Earlier in the day, Alec Baldwin took to social media to defend his wife amid claims about her accent. In a lengthy video, the 30 Rock alum told slammed the speculation, 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 herself also addressed the backlash—sparked by a viral Twitter thread which also alleged she went by the name Hillary while growing up in Massachusetts—with 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 said in part. “It’s one of those things that’s always been a little bit, I’ve been a little insecure about.”
