Alec Baldwin made a brief stop by Occupy Wall Street’s camp in Zuccotti Park late Tuesday evening, as he promised to do on Twitter.
The politically inclined actor has been discussing Occupy Wall Street with his Twitter users, sharing what he believes should be the movement’s mission: “Campaign Finance Reform should b the goal of
#OccupyWallStreet. Wealth is not the issue. It's using wealth to buy the govt, that's the issue.”
On Tuesday, he tweeted, “I wanna go to Zuccotti Park...” And an hour later, he did: “On my way to OWS.”
After spending “a too brief two hours” at the park, he thanked two demonstrators for his “OWS tutorial.” His opinion about the movement was unchanged: “OWS needs to coalesce around some legislative policy. The ‘occupy’ strategy may be an effective one. But what can each entity agree on?”
To the Twitter hater who claimed Baldwin was behaving hypocritically because he stars in credit card commercials, he replied, “I donated all of my fee from Capital One 2 arts charities. They have been gr8 partners in my support of the arts.”
He’s now returned to sending non-political tweets concerning viewing fall foliage via trains.
