‘s wife Hilaria has come under scrutiny for posting a fun photo on Instagram celebrating the holiday with their six children days after Halyna Hutchin’s death on the Rust movie set.
She faced social media backlash following the post on Sunday where she described how ‘intense’ parenting has been while coping with the very public situation surrounding the tragedy involving her husband.
She was criticised as ‘inappropriate and tasteless’ for posting the holiday snaps while Halyna Hutchin’s nine-year-old son would face his first Halloween without his mother.
‘Parenting through this has been an intense experience, to say the least,’ Hilaria, 37, wrote on Instagram Sunday.
‘Today, we rallied to give them a holiday.Last min costumes…a little hodge-podge…but they were so happy and that warmed my mama heart.’
The Baldwins have been under intense scrutiny ever since Alec, 63, fired the gun that killed Hutchins, a cinematographer, on the set of his movie ‘Rust’ on October 21.
The couple’s fun-loving family photos were released hours after a new report revealed that there had been at least three other accidental gun discharges on the set before Hutchins was killed.

However, Hilaria faced social media backlash and was criticised as ‘inappropriate and tasteless’ for posting the fun holiday snaps while Halyna Hutchin’s nine-year-old son would face his first Halloween without his mother
Hilaria posted the collection of photos to her Instagram feed on Sunday touting their family’s holiday festivities – despite the negative response she received online Saturday after interrupting her husband several times during a press conference.
The photos show Alec dressed up as a creature from the popular children’s book Where the Wild Things Are.
Hilaria is seen sporting an apparent spider witch costume that matched her daughters Carmen, 8, and Maria Lucia Victoria, 8 months.
The couple also posed Maria and her older brother, Eduardo, 1, in matching brightly-colored workout clothes.
Their three older sons, Rafael, 6, Leonardo, 5, and Romeo, 3, also wore fun costumes although it was not immediately clear what the boys were dressed up as.
The actor and his wife faced backlash on Twitter as one user, Leigh Daly, wrote: ‘@AlecBaldwin did your wife actually post Halloween photos on Instagram!!So inappropriate and so not a good look!’
Another social media user pointed out that Halyna’s young son, Andros, would still be in mourning for his mother, saying: ‘The Baldwin kids should absolutely enjoy Halloween. This year, though, #hilariabaldwin should have kept their festivities (and herself) off social media.Halyna’s son didn’t get to enjoy this holiday. Celebrate without posting, Hillary. It’s literally the least you could do.’
However, several celebrities commented on the post, expressing their love for the Baldwins and offering support during what Hilaria has described as an ‘intense’ time.
‘Lord!!!I cannot even imagine the chaos! But you two are doing a good job. Giving them a great childhood,’ wrote actor Leslie Jordan.
‘Oh I love everything about this!!!!’ said journalist Joelle Garguilo.
‘Stay strong…’ echoed actor and professional chef David Burtka.
‘Sending you big hugs.They are so lucky to have you,’ Mary Orton Scudellari, entrepreneur, investor and self-proclaimed style enthusiast, added.

Meanwhile, an investigative report published Sunday morning in the revealed three accidental weapons discharges that took place prior to Hutchins’ death.
One involved Alec’s stunt double accidentally firing a blank after being told the gun was ‘cold’.
In another instance, a props department worker ‘actually shot herself in the foot’ with a blank.
The Times interviewed several crew members during their investigation.
One alleged that there were several ‘red flags’ throughout the production, citing the fact that there was not an on-site medic present during pre-production.
‘Somebody dropped a countersink bit and it stabbed me in the hand.I had to take care of it myself and I’m still healing from it,’ a production worker shared.
Another claimed that production leaders were more concerned with their budget than the safety on set.
‘It always felt like the budget was more important than crew members,’ Lane Luper, the A-camera first assistant, told the newspaper Saturday.
‘Every thing was about the schedule and the budget.’

Luper, along with several unnamed crew, also claimed that officials did not send out safety bulletins with call sheets once filming began.
Despite the alleged lack of safety concern amongst production leaders, the crew claims Alec prioritized the well-being of his fellow cast and crew.
‘Alec was pretty concerned about safety on set,’ a camera technician said.
‘He wanted to know where I would be standing when he drew his gun,’ echoed another crew member.
‘I told him I was going to be standing in a different place, and he said, ‘Good.’
Hutchins died on October 21 after Alec pointed and fired a Colt pistol at her during a scene.
Alec was handling the vintage gun on the set of Rust in Santa Fe, New Mexico, when it accidentally discharged – killing the mom-of-one and wounding director Joel Souza.
A day after the accident, Hilaria was seen leaving the family’s Greenwich Village home.
‘I didn’t know where I was going, I just drove,’ she said.’I just drove around and around and around with my kids.’
She settled for Manchester, Vermont, to escape from the media scrutiny. Her husband eventually joined her there.
Alec has remained silent about the situation since issuing a public statement the day after Hutchins’ death in which he indicated that he was cooperating with authorities and offered his condolences to her family.
His silence was also reflected in his social media accounts, until Saturday when he appeared to return to some of his typical online behaviors.
He complimented actor and comedian Mario Cantone’s Halloween costume and retweeted a post about the importance of teachers and educators.
Alec also issued political commentary, responding to a tweet by Kurt Anderson asking his panel followers instagram for examples of other ‘once-great American institutions misleadingly operating under their old names?’
He replied: ‘The federal government.’

Alec was with Hilaria, who appeared to be filming the interaction, when the couple pulled over to talk to photographers in Manchester, Vermont.
The couple spoke for roughly four minutes.He said: ‘A woman died. She was my friend.’
‘The day I arrived in Santa Fe to start shooting, I took her to dinner with Joel, the director,’ he said. ‘We were a very, very well oiled crew shooting a film together and then this horrible event happened.’
Hilaria, who appeared to want to say something to her husband, walked toward him as he talked to reporters, prompting an annoyed Alec to tell her: ‘Excuse me.’
Alec told photographers he had been ‘ordered’ by the Santa Fe Sheriff’s Office ‘not to talk about the investigation,’ but is ‘eagerly awaiting for the sheriff’s department’ to release their findings.
The actor, who was visibly tense during his exchange with reporters, then asked: ‘What other questions do you have other than that?’
He also claimed he ‘talks to the cops every day’ following the death of the 42-year-old filmmaker.
