Alec Baldwin Goes Dark after Name Emerges in Epstein's 'Little Black Book' at Trial
Embattled Hollywood actor and wife delete verified Twitter accounts
Alec Baldwin and his wife have mysteriously deleted their verified social media accounts after the embattled Hollywood actor's name emerged from child sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein's "little black book" of contacts.
The Baldwins went dark on Sunday shortly after Epstein's book was revealed as evidence during the trial of his alleged trafficking accomplice Ghislaine Maxwell.
The gun Baldwin was holding while filming the movie discharged a live round, killing cinematographer Halyna Hutchins and injuring director Joel Souza.
Baldwin then recorded an interview with ABC regarding the incident on Thursday, where he claimed didn't feel guilty for the shooting because he "didn't pull the trigger."
The connection to the interview appears logical as, three days later, both Baldwin and his wife deleted their Twitter accounts.
However, the Rust shooting is far from the only controversy Baldwin has found himself in the middle of this past week.
On Friday, a piece of evidence submitted in the United States v. Ghislaine Maxwell directly connected Baldwin to Epstein, the late convicted pedophile accused of trafficking underage girls to be raped by himself and his powerful friends.
Maxwell is currently on trial, facing charges related to her alleged complicity in Epstein’s crimes.
The piece of evidence in question — Government Exhibit 52 — was an annotated copy of Epstein’s “little black book.”
The book is a directory containing a long list of names, numbers, and addresses for Epstein’s many friends, associates, and acquaintances.
A long list of prominent celebrities was included in the book, among them was Alec Baldwin.
This was all revealed on Friday, a mere two days before Baldwin and his wife deleted their accounts.
In addition to Baldwin, contact information for various other celebrity figures can be found within the “little black book,” including Ralph Fiennes, David Blaine, Jimmy Buffett, Chris Evans, Dustin Hoffman, Mick Jagger, Michael Jackson, and Chris Tucker.
A copy of the directory with various entries redacted in order to protect the identities of potential underage victims of Epstein can be viewed below.
These include David Koch, Mike Bloomberg, Peter Cohen, Flavio Briatore, Steve Forbes, Rubert Murdoch, Ronald Perelman (the businessman, not the actor), and Peter Soros (the nephew of George Soros).
In addition, the names of politicians from countries across the world can be seen in the directory, including prominent world leaders.
Those names include former Democratic Sen. Ted Kennedy, former Prime Minister of the United Kingdom Tony Blair, Prince Michael of Yugoslavia, and entries for the “Duchess” and “Duke of York” - Britain's Prince Andrew and his wife Sarah Ferguson.
In summary, the book showed the incredible influence and long list of personal connections Epstein had with global elites, among which was one Alec Baldwin.
