·1 min read

Following last week's deadly accidental shooting involving Alec Baldwin on the set of the film "Rust," the actor's daughter, Ireland Baldwin, has broken her silence.

"Amongst some of the most abhorrent and threatening comments, emails, text messages, and voicemails I've been getting ... this beautiful comment stands alone. I know my dad, you simply don't. I love you, Dad," Ireland, 26, shared Wednesday on Instagram, along with another Instagram user's memory of her dad that portrayed him as an unpretentious actor and loving father.

The comment read, "So about a million years ago I was working in the production office in Toronto of the company that was making the Thomas the Tank Engine movie that he did. I'd dealt with typing up some pretty goofy celebrity riders in my day but NOT your dads."

"He only wanted to make sure he had milk and cereal in his hotel room for when his daughter was visiting. That was it. That was the whole rider. I'll always remember that," the user concluded.

Ireland previously announced that she will be stepping away from social media while her family deals with the tragedy.
