(RepublicanInformer.com)- A documentary about the environment and the Flint water crisis that featured controversial actor Alec Baldwin has been postponed, according to its director, after the left-wing actor shot a woman dead on set.
Baldwin shot cinematographer Halyna Hutchins on the set of “Rust,” a new Western-style movie being produced by Baldwin. The actor was reportedly rehearsing shooting the gun at a camera but didn’t check to see if the gun was live. He allegedly shot one round that killed Hutchins and injured another person.
Court documents show that Baldwin was told the gun wasn’t loaded, but he still did not check it for himself.
Anthony Baxter, the director of “Flint: Who Can You Trust?” announced that they have postponed the United States theatrical and digital release of the documentary “following recent tragic events out of respect.”
He added that enabling the residents of Flint to have their stories heard is still hugely important to him and that he will make sure that the film is released at a later date.
When exactly will people forget that Alec Baldwin shot a woman dead on set?
The documentary, as you might have guessed, focuses on the water crisis in the city of Flint after it switched its water supply from Lake Huron to the Flint River. The water proved corrosive, damaging pipes across the city and forcing them to revert bake to water from Lake Huron only a year later.
It’s believed that as many as 25,000 people were harmed by consuming the water.
