Alec Baldwin has come under fire from fans after he shared a photo of the late cinematographer Halyna Hutchins on Friday, a year after he shot and killed her on the set of Rust.
The actor, 64, posted a picture of Hutchins with a camera with the caption: ‘A year ago today’ – with social media followers calling the star ‘shameful’ and calling for what be “held accountable”.
No one has been charged or even arrested in Hutchins’ murder despite a year of legal back and forth, public wrangling and lawsuits. Baldwin maintained that it was an accident, but not the one for which he was responsible.
One follower wrote: ‘Are you posting something you should be ashamed of? It’s like turning your shameful reality into a throwback just for Instagram. So desensitized!! I wonder how and with what.

Another wrote: ‘A year ago you killed her… how brave to post this’ while another typed: ‘It was your fault and not a freak accident’. You should be held responsible.
One follower wrote: ‘It’s not a slap in the face or anything’, with another writing: ‘Is this the woman you killed?’, A third adding: ‘That seems really inappropriate since it’s it was you who shot and killed her.
Others called Baldwin “bold” for daring to post the image while another fan called for Baldwin to be jailed.
The prosecutor charged with bringing charges in Baldwin’s fatal shooting of Hutchins last year said on Friday she was “committed” to pursuing justice for the victims and warned: “No one is above the law”.
Santa Fe District Attorney Mary Carmack-Altwies told DailyMail.com in a statement on Friday that she was still awaiting the sheriff’s report into the shooting.
Only when she has this can she make a decision, but she issued the ominous warning: ‘No one is above the law’.

Baldwin, who claims it was an accident but for which he was not responsible, did not comment.
He insists he didn’t pull the trigger, instead claiming the malfunctioning gun was tragically loaded with live ammunition instead of bullets and fired on its own.
The sheriff’s department has yet to release its report, and it’s unclear what the delay is.
Halyna Hutchins, 42, was shot and killed on October 21 while working on the set of Rust
Gunsmith Hannah Gutierrez-Reed, who was 24 at the time and quickly became a scapegoat, says she’s not to blame either.
Meanwhile, Hutchins’ widower, Matthew, dropped a lawsuit against Baldwin and the film’s production.
He had sued them for wrongful death, but backed out after reaching a secret settlement.
Although the terms of that deal have not been made public, he will now serve as producer on the film once production resumes.
None of the other parties commented on the anniversary.
Baldwin and his wife Hilaria recently welcomed their seventh child – a baby girl.
Hilaria was seen leaving their Manhattan apartment yesterday with the youngest child.
After the shooting last year, they decamped to Vermont with their children. The family has since put their Hamptons home up for sale.
