Alec Baldwin faced criticism on social media for sharing a video supporting Anne Heche following the "horrific" car crash in which she was involved on Friday in the Los Angeles area, a crash which caused a fiery blaze and destroyed a home.

"Hey, I just want to send out my best wishes and all my love to Anne Heche," Baldwin told his two million followers on Saturday night. He starred alongside Heche, 53, in the '96 legal thriller "The Juror," and they reconnected in 2004 for the Broadway play, "Twentieth Century."

But fans were not interested in Baldwin's plight and rushed to remind the actor that Heche, 53, was "reckless" while driving her Mini Cooper furiously through the residential Mar Vista neighborhood in videos obtained by surveillance cameras, before the vehicle finally crashed into a home.

"She is an amazingly talented woman," he said in the video posted on Instagram, which amassed more than 11,000 likes overnight.

"I love you Anne. I love you and I think you are such a talented person. I hope everything is ok. I hope you come through this. My heart goes out to you. I’m sorry you had this tragic thing happen to you, and I’m sending you all my love," he added. "Everyone, join me please in sending their support and love to the wonderful Anne Heche. Thanks."

One Instagram user wrote, "She put lives in danger," while another simply wrote, "Thank god there wasn't any children playing in that garden."

"What about the people that she almost killed??" Instagram user @lisadoo50 wrote. "Is she more important?"

"Did you see how reckless she was driving and how she hit a building before she crashed? Did you see the RING doorbell footage? She is lucky she didn't kill anyone," @channiempearson wrote.

"Well, let's hope she recovers and is able to build a new life IN recovery," @vilew added.

Anne Heche "drank vodka" with "wine chasers" during a "Better Together" podcast recording with co-host Heather Duffy, which was posted hours before the fiery collision Heche reportedly caused on Friday when she crashed her Mini Cooper into a home in Mar Vista, California. The Apple podcast was published on Friday and then removed from the platform. It's unclear when the episode was taped.

Heche joked that listeners would have to keep their "fingers crossed" that the pair would even be able to make it through the recording together.

"We each have a bottle in front of us because our friends sent us a bottle [of] Re:Find!" she said before admitting she once "did a terrible commercial" for the brand.

Duffy added that a doctor told the duo "that we should be drinking vodka instead of wine."

"And we listened! And we are drinking it — with wine chasers," Heche said, while seemingly slurring the name of the podcast.... (Read more)
