The yoga expert, 38, posted a series of clips to her Stories, saying, ‘We’re driving people to the place where they want to commit suicide, where they’re losing their mental health.’

The author started out her message by telling her followers that they should privately reach out to anyone that may be at the center of an online mob attack.

‘If you see somebody getting attacked by the online mob, or any kind of cancel culture, instead of scrolling past, or worst, getting involved, reach out to them and just tell them that you support them as a human,’ she said.

‘You don’t have to agree with them a 100%, you don’t even have to even understand what they’re attacking them for,’ she went on.

The brunette beauty added that it’s impossible to please everyone at the same time, and that we should not judge others based on partial information. 

‘This idea of nitpicking, and having partial information, and taking things out of context, or even when people completely disappoint you. It is not for us to be judging everybody all the time.’

‘It’s absolutely impossible to make absolutely everybody happy, and to be in alignment with everybody. We’re more divided than ever.’

Hilaria –  who is currently expecting her seventh child with the Glengarry Glen Ross actor – wrapped-up her message by stating that an online attack is a form of mental torture and can lead the victim to thoughts of suicide.  

‘But I can tell you, that this kind of attack is mental torture. As humans, we are not built for it. We’re driving each other crazy, we’re driving people to the place where they want to commit suicide, where they’re losing their mental health,’ she said.

‘And this is not fair. It’s not good. So reach out to them and just tell them that you’re thinking about them to try to stabilize them.’

Hilaria’s husband has certainly experienced much online criticism after Hutchins was killed and director Joel Souza injured in October 2021, as Baldwin rehearsed a scene with what he believed to be a safe gun. 

The actor issued a statement on Wednesday, shortly after New Mexican Occupational Health and Safety Bureau officials levied the maximum fine against the producers of Rust.

Executive producers were hit with a $136,793 film – the maximum available. Baldwin himself was a producer, but highlighted a passage in the investigation which said that he was involved in the script and casting – but not safety procedures.

Baldwin, who has argued that he did not know the gun was loaded when it was handed to him by the film’s assistant director David Halls, issued a statement that touted the scathing report as a victory.

‘We are grateful to the New Mexico Occupational and Safety Bureau for investigating this matter. We appreciate that the report exonerates Mr. Baldwin by making clear that he believed the gun held only dummy rounds.

‘Additionally, the report recognizes that Mr. Baldwin’s authority on the production was limited to approving script changes and creative casting. Mr. Baldwin had no authority over the matters that were the subject of the Bureau’s findings of violations, and we are pleased that the New Mexico officials have clarified these critical issues.’

The statement concluded: ‘We are confident that the individuals identified in the report will be held accountable for this tragedy.’
