¡#Ay, ay, ay! #Hilaria #Baldwin, recently revealed to be born #Hillary #Hayward-Thomas, believes she didn’t do anything wrong by implying she has #Spanish heritage for the past decade. #In a new interview with the #New #York #Times, the wife of actor #Alec #Baldwin denies culturally appropriating a spicier whiteness. “There is not something I’m doing wrong, and I think there is a difference between hiding and creating a boundary,” she tries to explain, blaming the confusion on “people misrepresenting” her.

#Baldwin says her claims to #Spanish culture come from the “time” she spent in #Spain as a kid, saying her family often traveled to cities like #Madrid, #Seville, and #Valencia at least once a year. “I think it would be maddening to do such a tight time line of everything,” she said. “You know, sometimes there was school involved. #Sometimes it was vacation. #It was such a mix, mishmash, is that the right word? #Like a mix of different things.” #Baldwin was in the pages of #Latina and #Hello!, portraying herself as a #Spanish immigrant, at a time when real immigrants are being cruelly detained and deported. (#To the #Times, #Baldwin claims she didn’t know #Hello!, which has affixed an extensive correction to its 2018 interview with her, was inaccurately reporting her as #Spanish, even though she and her husband have said as much.)

#Back in #Boston, she says her parents, who now live in #Mallorca, “brought #Spain into our home” through food and visiting friends from the country. “Who is to say what you’re allowed to absorb and not absorb growing up?” she defended herself. #Sure, these are lovely childhood memories, but it’s a stretch to suggest these things allow #Hilaria #Baldwin to exaggerate an accent, claim #Spain as her home, or purport herself as an expert, all of which she has done for over ten years. (#Five of them #Trump years, at that!) #At least her fellow “third” culture kid, #Timothée #Chalamet — who spent summers in #France, speaks #French, and has that name — knows not to pretend he’s anything but a #New #Yorker above all.
