Ireland, 26 posted an Instagram story on Monday, October 25, calling Owens a “disgusting, hateful, cancerous human being” after the conservative trashed Alec and his involvement in the tragic shooting on the Rust set.
Owens, 32, called the accident — which left 42-year-old mom and cinematographer Halyna Hutchins dead — a near example of “poetic justice” for Alec, a term that didn’t sit well with the famed actor’s daughter.
After Ireland went off on her Instagram stories, Owens posted a series of screenshots hours later to show the private conversation that went down between the two women in their Instagram direct messages.
“Ireland Baldwin is in my DMs because I don’t feel bad for her psychopathic father,” Owens wrote. “Feel bad for the victim, not Alec.”
The 63-year-old actor was the one who pulled the trigger in the fatal shooting on Thursday, October 21, although he was reportedly told that the weapon was “cold,” meaning it didn’t contain any live bullets.
Owens continued to bash Alec for the accident in her post, claiming, “He has always been a predator in Hollywood who was given a pass.”
The talk show host followed up her post with screenshots of her conversation with Ireland, who told Owens, “You people really like to pick and choose what’s convenient for you...Now all the sudden your [sic] animal lovers because of Fauci LOL,” in reference to recent allegations that Dr. Anthony Fauci was conducting scientific experiments on puppies.
Ireland’s message concluded with, “A nine-year-old boy lost his mother. This is an [sic] about poetic justice or politics…”
Owens responded, “Also a bit odd you chose that photo that was literally taken on Saturday and appeared first in the daily Mail today but okay,” and another message that read, "Did someone wish harm upon the boy?”
It is unclear how the rest of the conversation went, but the two women appeared to come to a resolution by the end of it.
Ireland posted a screenshot of her last message to Owens, which read, “Thank you for taking the time to have a real conversation. Have a peaceful evening.”
Owens responded, “No problem. Same to you.”
Ireland added a comment alongside the screenshot, writing “some times having an actual conversation can go a long way…” which Owens later reposted to her own story as well.
In a final story for the night, Ireland wrote, “I will always stand for what I do...but one thing we need less of in this world is perpetuated hate and anger and fighting...especially in the wake of this tragedy. Thanks, again, to everyone who have been so kind and supportive.”
Her famous dad broke his silence on the tragedy last week, revealing that he was heartbroken over the accident.
