Alec Baldwin has quit Twitter after a controversy surrounding his wife Hilaria, saying, "Twitter is like a party where everyone is screaming. Not much of a party."
In December, yoga instructor and lifestyle influencer Hilaria was accused of pretending to have Spanish roots. She denied the claims in a New York Times profile.

Not much of a party.
Goodbye for now.
"There is not something I'm doing wrong, and I think there is a difference between hiding and creating a boundary," she said at the time.
Angered by online comments about the issue, Baldwin took to Twitter to explain why he’s quitting the platform.
"Twitter is like a party where everyone is screaming. Not much of a party," he wrote, adding, "Goodbye for now."
Baldwin has also said he is "overjoyed" to lose his job on SNL playing Donald Trump now that the businessman will be stepping down as US president.
"It will be comforting when we have a President who doesn’t Tweet twice as much as I do … They’re gonna need an enormous shipment of tissues sent to Mar-a-Lago," he said.
"On to my next wish. That everyone who voted in this election maintains that commitment and votes in the 2022 midterm elections. Let’s keep this going!!!"
