Irish Baldwin (Irish Baldwin) thanked her fans.
The star recently stepped in to support her stepmother Hilaria Baldwin (Hilaria Baldwin), because fans have been accusing her of pretending to be accented for years, thus debating the authenticity of her Spanish heritage.
On Monday, the 23-year-old model entered social media to resolve the dispute.
According to a screenshot obtained by the Daily Mail, she said: “I just want to say something, and nothing more. I fully support any individual in the Latinx community. I will continue to listen and learn.” “But when it comes to me I will also feel defensive when misinformation from my family’s family spreads. I will do better…. At the same time, I hope people can get information from reliable sources.”

However, she soon expressed strong opposition to the use of the term “Latinx” because it described people of Latin American descent, rather than claiming that she was born in the 36-year-old Hilaria in Majorca, Spain.
One fan even reached out to tell Xingxing her mistake.
The self-proclaimed “Latino” fan first thanked the star for his “sympathy and openness.”
They said: “Friendly is for reference only, Spain is not geographically in Latin America.” “So people from Spain are only labeled as Spanish, Hispanic or Hispanic.”
Followers further explained that the term “Hispanic” refers to “people mainly from Spanish-speaking countries” and “Latinx” refers to people in Latin America.
The fans concluded: “This is why the Spaniard is not marked as a Latino, because Spain is in Europe, not Latin America.”
Baldwin shared a screenshot of the conversation (as captured by the Daily Mail) in her Instagram story and appreciated the clarification.

On Tuesday, Ireland once again supported her stepmother in a statement on Instagram.
She said: “Like I mentioned yesterday, I love my stepmother very much. I think she is a strong, friendly and caring person.” “In all this, I have nothing to say to discuss her Family background and answering your questions are hers, not mine.”
The drama started with yoga/health expert Hilaria’s reaction to a tweet that said: “You must admire Hilaria Baldwin’s commitment to her ten years of distress. So she played a Spanish person.” Since then, the viral tweet has been deleted.
