"But reeeeaaaalllyyy hit that unfollow button if you're trying to defame my father and tweet such horrific statements about this tragic situation. It breaks my heart that people are so hatefully ignorant...," she wrote.

Owens also saw the diatribe and posted screenshots of a heated direct-message argument she and Baldwin had about it.

"Ireland Baldwin is in my DMs because I don't feel bad for her psychopathic father," Owens wrote Monday on Instagram Stories. "Feel bad for the victim, not Alec. He has always been a predator in Hollywood who was given a pass."

Despite that, Baldwin and Owens ultimately came to some sort of truce that they posted about too.

"Some times having an actual conversation can go a long way," Baldwin wrote in a screenshot about their understanding, which Owens reposted.

"Thank you for taking the time to have a real conversation," Baldwin wrote to Owens in a DM. "Have a peaceful evening."


"No problem. Same to you," Owens responded.

Baldwin later added that "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."

On Friday Ireland Baldwin addressed the shooting by sending love and support to Hutchins' family and friends and healing thoughts to Souza. She also said she wished she could hug her dad "extra tight today."

Alec Baldwin's wife, Hilaria Baldwin, and his brother Stephen Baldwin have also shown their support for the victims and for the "Rust" star, who has said that he's "fully cooperating with the police investigation" into the incident.
