Helping out the haters! Hilaria Baldwin does social media trolls a favor when they leave negative comments on her Instagram posts.
“The nicest thing I can do for these people is delete their comments because everybody is going to attack them,” the fitness guru, 35, told Us Weekly exclusively backstage at the Match Game on Monday, June 17. “[It’s] for your own good because everybody is going to go after you. … People don’t need this kind of negativity. You’re putting negativity out there, [but] I don’t need you to get a negative [response].”
So what about the times that the Living Clearly Method author does clap back against criticism on social media? Although this happens “very, very rarely,” Baldwin told Us, “The reason I do that is not so much for me, but I always think, if you’re doing this to me, you’re probably doing it to other people too. I’ll try to [respond] when it’s a theme that’s relatable to a lot of people.”
Last month, the former yoga instructor, who shares Carmen, 5, Rafael, 4, Leonardo, 2, and Romeo, 13 months, with her husband, Alec Baldwin, defended herself after letting her youngest swim without a hat on. (Alec shares daughter Ireland, 23, with his ex-wife, Kim Basinger).
“Stop about the hat,” Hilaria wrote on Instagram in May. “If you would like, I will invite you to my home and you can try to both put a hat on him and have him keep it on. You will be my honored guest. And OF COURSE he has sunscreen on. What is wrong with people that they expect the worst?”
An all new episode of Match Game, hosted by Alec Baldwin, airs on Wednesday, June 19, at 10 p.m. ET as part of ABC’s “Summer Fun & Games.”
