Alec Baldwin’s assassinated director of photography was not working on a documentary on Hollywood’s pedophile networks.
False claim: Screenshots of a supposed news item have been posted on social media, stating that director of photography Halyna Hutchins, who died on October 21, 2021 after being shot by actor Alec Baldwin on the set of a movie, was working on a documentary on pedophile gangs in Hollywood.
- Craig Mizrahi, Hutchins’ agent, claimed in a statement to the press that she “was not working on, involved with, or approached by any impending documentaries,” and that her sole projects were “conventional narrative films.”
- WorldGreyNews.com, a “False News generator” that enables anyone to create their own headlines and fake news, published the item circulated on social media. The site identifies itself in its “About” section as follows: “The purpose of this website is to have fun.” It should be used for lighthearted banter with your pals. The content is not our responsibility.”
- The phony report implies that Hutchins’ murder was linked to a well-known QAnon conspiracy theory that Hollywood celebrities are members of a satanic pedophilia organization that former President Donald Trump was seeking to expose during his presidency.

- On October 21, Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro addressed the erroneous assertion during his weekly live feed on social media. The video was removed from Facebook the following Sunday when it was found to be in violation of the platform’s regulations.

The statement further emphasizes that those living with HIV/AIDS should get all of their COVID-19 vaccination doses.
