Who is Ireland Baldwin's boyfriend RAC? Couple slammed for ‘tone-deaf’ Halloween costume
'We didn’t think we would celebrate, but we found some old costumes and blood,' Ireland Baldwin mentioned in her Halloween post
Actor Alec Baldwin recently stirred controversy for happily posing in Halloween costumes with his family, barely a week after he accidentally shot dead cinematographer Halyna Hutchins. Now, the 'Rust' actor's daughter Ireland Baldwin is being targetted for her 'tone-deaf' Halloween costume, while the family of Halyna Hutchins still mourns her tragic death. On Halloween, the 26-year-old model posed cozily with her boyfriend RAC, both dressed in gory, bloodied costumes. While Ireland wore a sexy schoolgirl outfit, photos showed faux blood smeared on her face and dress. Meanwhile, RAC who clicked the photos donned a T-shirt stained with fake blood.
The gory couple's costume undoubtedly bore the spooky essence of Halloween, but was slammed as 'tone-deaf' by her followers. "We didn’t think we would celebrate, but we found some old costumes and blood, ate really good food, drank tequila, had a couple friends over, watched a scary movie and had 0 trick or treaters … How was your Halloween? Raise your hand if you went as squid game this year," Ireland wrote in her Instagram. A follower slammed her directly commenting, "Just whyyyyyy??? Where is the compassion????? A woman is deaddd!! Your DAD CAUSED IT. Whether or not he was at fault is up for debate, but show SOME reverence!”
Ireland Baldwin has been dating Grammy-winning musician Andre Allen Anjos, better known as RAC, for quite a while now. The Portuguese-American musician is well-recognized for his collaborative acts with Linkin Park and Andrew Maury. RAC has also performed at top music festivals like Coachella, Firefly, and Lollapalooza. He has composed more than 200 remixes in all genres of music, including rock, dance-pop, and electronic.
Born in 1985 in Coimbra, Portugal, his family moved to the US in the mid-1990s. However, they moved to Europe again and returned in 2005 when he attended the Greenville College in Illinois. Trained in piano and guitar since his childhood, Anjos earned a degree in music, media, and entertainment business, before launching a career in music. He also met his ex-wife Liz in college and got married later.
Anjos performed under the stage name RAC, while his wife Liz Anjos is a noted piano artist with the stage name Pink Feathers. It is unclear when exactly he separated from his wife, as the couple was reportedly together during last year's pandemic as well. We are also uncertain when exactly Ireland Baldwin started seeing RAC, but she went Instagram official with her relationship in July 2021.
The pair regularly shares romantic photos with each other and snippets about their lives. Little did they know that their spooky and cosy Halloween night would not turn out to be so "adorable" to the followers after all.
"Seeing all these rich privileged grown ups posting these costumes makes me sick..like who cares," a follower commented on her Halloween special post.
Another wrote, "I'm completely sympathetic to you and what you and your family are going through now. What happened to your dad was an extremely unfortunate tragedy. But the optics of this costume, at this time, are not good. You should do you, but I wish you'd thought better of posting these pictures."
However, the couple's costume received a seal of approval from Paris Hilton who commented with a 'hearty-eyes' emoji.
Alec Baldwin was also slammed mercilessly on the internet after his wife Hilaria shared family photos on her Instagram page celebrating Halloween.
