She is her father’s daughter.
Ireland Baldwin participated in yet another rant via social media Monday night.
What really set Ireland off this time around was when she saw The New York Daily News posted an article Monday titled “‘Little Pig’ to the rescue,” in reference to a verbally abusive voice mail Alec left his daughter in 2007.
“I’ve dealt with a lot this past week,” the 18-year-old wrote on Instagram. “This has been a particularly rough week for many reasons. When I saw this earlier today, I didn’t really give two shits about it. I thought the little pigs children’s fable reference was a clever touch.”
Miss Baldwin continued, “When I revisited this article, I saw it for what it really is. Everyone tells me to stop paying attention to what others are saying, but it’s hard. This hurts. I am a human being, believe it or not. I am also not a celebrity. This is not what I would ever want to be known for. I am so tempted to delete my twitter and all other social media outlets, but I won’t because the small following of loyal friends I have, has been one of the greatest support systems that I could ever ask for. Thousands of strangers that feel as though I’ve known all of them my entire life.”
And then finally taking back what she said on Sunday night, ”I did not STAND UP for my father. It is never right to treat people the way that he has. I simply wanted to show my support for my family. No matter what, my dad is my dad and he is the only one I will ever have. He may have made some wrong choices, but that doesn’t mean I’m leaving his side…The past is past and the Daily News are a bunch of cowards for revisiting my past. In the end, I feel nothing but sorry for them.”
“That’s the last I’m saying on this entire situation,” Ireland said, “Like everything else in this life, this too shall pass.”
