Ted Nugent has called actor Alec Baldwin a “soulless, nasty, rotten prick” and should spend the rest of his life in prison for shooting cinematographer Halyna Hutchins on the set of the film “Rust”.
Earlier this month, Baldwin made the claim that “the trigger wasn’t pulled” when a “live round” was discharged from the weapon, killing Hutchins and injuring director Joel Souza on October 21 just prior to filming a scene..
Nugent recently sat down for a new interview with Rock Titan TV and addressed the tragedy, saying: “There’s only one gun law you need on planet earth, and that is never point a weapon at anything you’re not willing to destroy.
“Hey, Alec Baldwin, you prick. You soulless, nasty, rotten prick,” he continued. “You were pointing the gun at a human being. You killed her. You’re guilty. I don’t wanna hear about the hammer; I don’t wanna hear about that trigger. You were pointing it at a human being. You’re guilty. You should be in a cage for the rest of your rotten punk-ass life.”
In his first post-tragedy interview with ABC News, Baldwin said that he had started to cock the gun and released the hammer but that “I never pulled the trigger.”
A script supervisor is currently suing the producers of “Rust”, including Alec Baldwin, claiming that the scene scene did not call for a weapon to be fired.
