The online rant began with the posts of Briscoe on Monday regarding questioning Alec's wife's fluctuating accent along with her claims that she grew up in Boston and took birth in Spain.

People claiming to be former classmates of Ms Baldwin in Boston then disputed her Spanish accent.

In an interview with ¡Hola! magazine, she claimed she was born in Mallorca, Spain and moved to the United States when she was 19.

Hilaria claims that she spent a lot of time in Spain visiting family in Madrid and they called her "Hilaria". Hilaria's maternal grandmother is also from MA, according to her obituary. She was born in Boston and not in Mallorca, as she has stated in past interviews.

Twitter user who posted Photo of Hilaria From her high school yearbook, she said that the now-famous alum was considered nothing more than a "basic white girl from Cambridge" at the time.

Despite fans and housewives" finding humor in it, both Alec and Hilaria don't seem to find anything amusing as they have hit back at the press calling it "ridiculous' with Hilaria claiming she never misled anyone. Her siblings and parents reside in Spain but she chooses to stay in the US.

The posts quickly went viral, prompting Hilaria to take to her Instagram page to admit she was actually born in Boston and that her real name is Hillary. "I am a white girl", after people started digging into her heritage, discovering that she has been misrepresenting it for years.

Catfish star Nev Schulman, known for helping people in exclusively online relationships discover if their partner is who they claim to be, joked that the Baldwins will be featured in his show's next episode.

"What Hilaria did is not amusing: it's a slap in the face to so many who are still feeling the effects of actually having the culture that she pretends to have", the Venezuelan native said. "Consider the source", he says.

"I left a big city with the intention of escaping the public eye in a small but meaningful way". Others pointed out that her accent comes and goes.

"Fake? Exaggerated? Appropriated an accent as an adult?"

All the moving has not been easy for Anderson, who admitted in an interview with Blog Talk Radio that she was confused about her identity. In our home we honor both cultures, Alec and I raised our children as bilinguals, exactly as it was with me.

Ireland continued, "1. Like I mentioned yesterday, I do love my step mom very much". On social media, people began to unearth videos that revealed the Living Clearly Method writer speaking with and without a Spanish accent in interviews over the years, as well as documentation of her family going back generations - in MA and NOT Mallorca.

Hilaria's stepdaughter and Alec's oldest daughter (with Kim Basinger), Ireland, defended her stepmom, calling the whole controversy "sad and pathetic" in her Instagram stories.
