Alec Baldwin mocked a Venezuelan immigrant who called his wife's hypocrisy and fake accent out on Twitter.  

The writing in question is an essay that journalist and assistant editor Ale Russian wrote for People recently. The essay talks about why a fake accent could be offensive to so many immigrants.

"Wrote a personal essay for @people explaining why it's hurtful to see Hilaria (Hillary) Baldwin gain success with a fake exaggerated accent while so many immigrants, especially POC, are ostracized, marginalized and ridiculed for the same."

Hilaria wrote back, "We can all be really clear that [Hilaria] is the same name [as Hillary]. It's just a few letters different. We shouldn't be so upset about it."

Baldwin was not slow to respond either with:

"Fake? Exaggerated? Appropriated an accent as an adult? She lived in Spain for many years as a child. She lived both places."

To which the immediate reply came from Veronica Escobar, a Colombian-American:

"I am child of immigrants whose FIRST language is Spanish. I grew up in a Spanish speaking home, watched Spanish language TV and visited family abroad. I am FLUENT. Never EVER had a Spanish accent speaking English. Stop trying to justify your wife's behavior. It's offensive."
