Hilaria Baldwin has been on the receiving end of intense backlash from celebrities after reports surfaced that she faked a Spanish accent.


Celebrities have taken to social media to mock Hilaria Baldwin after being accused of faking a Spanish accent. Fashion editor Joe Zee took a jab at her, referencing her viral cucumber video. He wrote:

"Well, I didn't have the 'Hilaria Baldwin is a white girl from Boston who faked a Spanish accent and her background' on my 2020 Bingo card but hey, 5 more days!"

Comedienne Kathy Griffin couldn't help but jump on the topic with a hilarious take. Griffin cited Baldwin's confession that she was actually born in Boston but spent part of her childhood in Spain.

She wrote that if people could decide their ethnicities based on where their parents took them for vacation, then she has "a Saugatuckian accent as a descendant of a long line of Michiganders."


She also poked fun at the famous cucumber clip, asking her followers how she would possibly know the English word for cucumber alongside a hashtag #hilariabaldwin.

Amy Schumer also didn't hesitate to comment on the subject in an Instagram post but she has since deleted it.


It happened that a video resurfaced of the mother-of-five pretending not to know how to pronounce cucumber during a cooking show. Comedian Michelle Collins also slammed Alec and Hilaria saying no two people deserve each other.

TV host Nev Schulman jumped on the jointed bashing using his show, "Catfish" as a reference. He joked about using this week's episode of the show to help Alec find out if Hilaria is truly who she is.


"The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" stars Kim and Kyle Richards shared laughing comments under a meme clip of Kim pretending to know Spanish during an episode of the reality show.

Amy Schumer also didn't hesitate to comment on the subject in an Instagram post but she has since deleted it. She shared a photo wearing a green dress, writing, "I get it. I went to Spain a couple of times and loved it too," alongside a cucumber emoji.

Hours before Schumer shared a reaction, Baldwin took to her Instagram to defend herself from the accusations. The 37-year-old addressed her accent, noting that she is bilingual and sometimes mixes up her English and Spanish.
