Full-time anti-Trump crusader and part-time comedian Alec Baldwin abruptly quit Twitter this week after a series of controversies surrounding his wife and a bizarre rant during the Golden Globe awards.
“The 62-year-old actor made the decision after getting skewered on Twitter for commenting about Gillian Anderson’s use of an American accent while accepting a Golden Globe on Sunday,” reports the New York Post.
“You can’t do any irony in the United States anymore because the United States is such an uptight, stressed out place,” said Baldwin.
