In a recent Hollywood Reporter interview, he admitted his approach of the topic would likely spark backlash.

“I don’t know how to say this and I don’t want to get it wrong either, because everything is a minefield of bombs going off,” he said. “But ever since I played Trump, black people love me. They love me.”

Making matters worse to those offended by his remarks, Baldwin built on his initial hypothesis.

“Everywhere I go, black people go crazy,” he added, opining that the reaction is “because they’re most afraid of Trump.”

Though he said he did not want to “paint every African-American person with the same brush,” Baldwin was eviscerated online by many who said his comments sounded like they could have come from the president he skewers on TV.

CNN contacted a publicist for the actor, who responded “no comment.”
