NEW YORK CITY, NEW YORK: Hilaria Baldwin appeared in public wearing a sweatshirt with the word "empathy" emblazoned on it a day after it was revealed that her husband, Alec Baldwin, will be charged with the October 2021 shooting death of 'Rust' cinematographer Halyna Hutchins.

The yoga instructor, 39, was spotted in New York City on Friday, January 20, sporting what appeared to be a green crewneck sweatshirt from Mayfair Group with the slogan in bold, white letters. She paired it with dark oversized sunglasses, pearl-encrusted slides, and some latex leggings.

According to the New York Post, Hilaria's presence appeared to be a ruse to divert reporters who had gathered outside her and Alec's Greenwich Village house. When she appeared, she reportedly instructed the throng to assemble around her and announced that she would make a statement. Alec allegedly slipped from a side entrance to a waiting van as she was doing so. "I'm only gonna say it once. I’m going to tell you what I want to say. I want you guys to realize we have seven kids," Hilaria said as Alec reportedly made his getaway.

"You being here [when I have to] escort them to school and when they come home — is not good," said Hilaria. "On a human level, you guys know I'm not going to say anything to you. You know that. So please leave my family in peace. And let this all play out. OK? So let my kids come home, and you stay away from them. Because they ask me, 'Mommy, what are these people doing?' And it’s a very hard thing, as a mom, to try and explain. So please, go home. I am not going to say anything and Alec is not going to say anything."

'Rust' actor Alec Baldwin, 64, and armorer Hannah Gutierrez-Reed, 25, were charged with involuntary manslaughter on January 19, 15 months after the former fatally shot cinematographer Halyna Hutchins, 42. This indictment, according to Baldwin's attorney Luka Nikas, "distorts Halyna Hutchins' tragic death," and he reiterated his client's earlier objections by claiming that the actor's coworkers "assured him the gun did not have live rounds." He added that charging the actor was "a terrible miscarriage of justice." "We will fight these charges, and we will win," the lawyer stated, as per Daily Mail.

Gutierrez-Reed pledged to contest the allegations as well. "Hannah is, and has always been, very emotional and sad about this tragic accident. But she did not commit involuntary manslaughter. These charges are the result of a very flawed investigation, and an inaccurate understanding of the full facts. We intend to bring the full truth to light and believe Hannah will be exonerated of wrongdoing by a jury," her attorneys said.
