Fox News Reporter Defends Himself After Dressing as Alec Baldwin for Halloween

Rick Leventhal erased the offensive images of him dressed up as Alec Baldwin in “Rust” for Halloween out of “respect” for the family of late cinematographer Halyna Hutchins, he exclusively told Page Six on Tuesday.

From pagesix.com:

“People twisted our outfits and intent in ways neither of us could’ve imagined and filled our page with hate,” the former Fox News correspondent, 61, said in a statement, referring to his wife, Kelly Dodd, who also caught heat for her Native American costume.

“We took the post down out of respect for the victims’ families and only hope the cancel culture won’t cancel Halloween next,” he added.

Leventhal caused an uproar on Instagram on Sunday when he shared the now-deleted post with the caption, “Kelly celebrated her Native American heritage & I celebrated the great American film actor Alec Baldwin #happyhalloween🎃.”
