A Twitter user found himself in a feud with Alec Baldwin over the former's tweet about last year's shooting death of a cinematographer that involved the the actor.
Mike Williams wrote a tweet Thursday to remind Baldwin of the death of cinematographer Halyna Hutchins. Director Joel Souza was also wounded in the on-set incident during the production of Rust.
"Trump tried to choke a Secret Service agent," Baldwin tweeted Tuesday, according to screenshots, as the tweets have since been deleted. "I mean ... what more do you need?"

"Better than shooting [your] cinematographer," Williams replied.
"When I am eventually not charged with any crime, I'll come find you so you can apologize," Baldwin fired back. "I'll find you Mike."
Baldwin was holding a revolver on the set of Rust when it fired and struck Hutchins and Souza last October. The actor claimed he believed the gun did not have ammunition in it at the time.
The Sante Fe County Sheriff's Department in New Mexico, where the film was being shot, is still gathering firearm and ballistics analysis, a medical examiner's report, and data from Baldwin's phone in its investigation of the shooting, and the Hutchins family has filed a lawsuit against Baldwin and others involved in the film.

As a result, Baldwin filed an arbitration demand requesting indemnification and seeking compensatory and consequential damages, attorney's fees, and other possible relief because he claims not to be at fault.Social Media News Twitter Alec Baldwin Celebrities

Ravens Sign Ex-Dolphins, Giants Linebacker; 2 Rookies Waived

The Baltimore Ravens added a veteran outside linebacker to their roster on Saturday, signing Trent Harris, who has spent time with three teams since entering the NFL as an undrafted free agent in 2018.
The University of Miami product — who is listed at 6-foot-2 and 255 pounds — saw his first regular-season action in 2019 as a member of the Miami Dolphins, who claimed him on waivers from the New England Patriots on September 1, 2019. He went on to appear in 11 games (with three starts) that year, and in the past two seasons he played eight games for the New York Giants, with two starts.
Harris, 26, has recorded 34 career tackles (20 solo), including one tackle for loss, two sacks, three quarterback hits and a forced fumble, as per Pro Football Reference.
He joins an outside linebacker group that currently features Odafe Oweh, Justin Houston, Daelin Hayes, Jeremiah Moon, Chuck Wiley and Steven Means, the latter of whom had three tackles and a sack in the preseason opener against the Tennessee Titans.
The Ravens await the return of Tyus Bowser (PUP list, Achilles), as well as second-round pick David Ojabo, who suffered a torn Achilles at his Pro Day in March but figures to be ready to play sometime this season.

In effect, Harris takes the 90-man roster spot vacated by Vince Biegel, who suffered a season-ending Achilles injury early in training camp. Harris worked out for the Ravens earlier in the week.

The Trent Harris signing wasn’t the only roster move the Ravens made this weekend. The team also waived a pair of rookie undrafted free agents, namely defensive back Denzel Williams and wide receiver Devon Williams.
Both Williams’s were signed in the immediate aftermath of the 2022 draft, with Denzel Williams out of Villanova and Devon Williams out of Oregon.
More cuts are just around the corner, as the deadline to trim the roster to 85 players is Tuesday August 16.2 Rookie Receivers ‘Had Their Moments’ vs. Titans
Meanwhile, two rookie undrafted free agent wide receivers made their case for a roster spot with their performances against Tennessee this past Thursday.
Shemar Bridges (Fort Valley State) used his 6-foot-4 frame to help him catch four passes for 62 yards, including a 14-yard touchdown. (His stepfather, Damian Swain, was invited to Ravens training camp in 2001 but “didn’t make the team and he never played in the NFL,” notes the team’s official website.)
“Fellow college free agents Makai Polk (six catches for 43 yards) and Raleigh Webb (one catch for 34 yards) also had their moments against the Titans,” noted Jeff Zrebiec of The Athletic in his Friday August 12 observations.
The Ravens return to preseason action on Aug. 21 with a nationally-televised Sunday night game at Arizona.
The regular-season opener is Sept. 11 against the New York Jets. It’s conceivable that the Jets will be quarterbacked by former Ravens QB Joe Flacco, 37, as New York starter Zach Wilson suffered a meniscus tear and bone bruise against the Philadelphia Eagles on Saturday August 12. Wilson will need surgery and is expected to miss 2-4 weeks.
