Lauren Boebert takes grotesque jab at Alec Baldwin over tragic movie set accident

Last night, a heartbreaking accident occurred on the set of Alec Baldwin’s new movie, Rust. A prop gun that apparently was loaded with live ammunition discharged in his hands, killing beloved photography director Halyna Hutchins and injuring the director Joel Souza. While there are certainly many questions that need to be answered — why was Baldwin “inspecting” the gun? why was a non-union prop master being used? — the idea that this is anything but a freak tragedy and a grim reminder of just how dangerous firearms can be, no matter the situation.

Unfortunately, many on the right-wing are responding with disgusting displays of glee and mockery, overjoyed at the idea of misfortune befalling the man who mocked their Great Leader on Saturday Night Live. Rushing to get in cheap shots without any regard for Hutchins, who leaves behind a young child, the worst people in American politics once again leaped at the opportunity to demonstrate what little regard they have for human life.

Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO), who does not exactly have the best track record herself when it comes to gun safety (or food safety for that matter), took to Twitter and mocked Baldwin by digging up an old tweet of his that said he was going to make yellow T-shirts that read “My hands are up. Please don’t shoot me.”

Judging by the appalling racism of the 2014-era replies, it appears the tweet was made in reference to the killing of Black Americans.

Boebert immediately sparked a tidal wave of disgust and condemnation from civilized society:
