The Golden Globe-winning actor's comments come after Oliver on Monday confronted actor Dustin Hoffman over sexual misconduct allegations while at a film festival discussion panel.

He also noted that things were different 40 years ago and things were "less problematic" then. "I'm against people asserting that the process begins and ends with accusations only", Baldwin added on Twitter.

Alec Baldwin blasted Stephen Colbert and John Oliver on Twitter Wednesday, saying that their show is becoming their own form of a "grand jury".

Today, Megyn Kelly asked Baldwin about his statement, and the actor insisted that he doesn't "want to see people who are innocent get into trouble" and described the issue as "a big can of worms".

The incident that seems to set Baldwin off was the Last Week Tonight host challenging actor Dustin Hoffman over an alleged 1985 incident in which "The Graduate" star is said to have sexually harassed a 17-year-old assistant.

"It's really really tough because you certainly want to see everyone who is guilty of something, who has done bad things, wrong things and hurt people you want to see those people get punished but I don't want to see other people get pulled into that. there's a lot of accusations and no proof yet".

Kelly pointed at that Weinstein and Hoffman were "not in the same class".

"They put up with it more. and now they don't put up with it", Baldwin said in agreement.
