The Twitterverse is wondering if Alec Baldwin has spent too much time portraying President Donald Trump on “Saturday Night Live.”

In an interview published Wednesday, Baldwin, 60, told the Hollywood Reporter that “ever since I played Trump, black people love me.”

The actor continued: “I think it’s because they’re most afraid of Trump. I’m not going to paint every African-American person with the same brush, but a significant number of them are sitting there going, ‘This is going to be bad for black folks.'”

His comments did not sit well with some social media users, who drew a starky comparison between Baldwin and the presidential character he portrays on “SNL.”

“Predator” star Olivia Munn asked Baldwin for the “receipts.”

“I need evidence of this. There are a lot of innocent black people you’re calling out and you shouldn’t be able to do it without receipts,” she tweeted Wednesday.

@Hawksandreed said Baldwin’s remarks are the “Trumpiest thing ever uttered by someone who isn’t Trump.”

This is the Trumpiest thing ever uttered by someone who isn’t Trump.

User @CocoaYummykins agreed, asking if Baldwin is “still in character?”

@TasneemN said his latest remarks equal Baldwin’s “most accurate impression of Trump… when he wasn’t even playing him.”

User @SlimiHendrix tried to recall a time Baldwin ever came up in discussion: “I for real don’t think i’ve ever talked to another black person about Alec Baldwin.”

@All_Eyez_On_D finished Baldwin’s comment for him: “Said no black person ever…”

@Chalin quoted President Trump’s controversial “Where’s my African American” comment on the campaign trail in June 2016, calling Baldwin’s remark equally “tone deaf.”

“Where’s my African American?” Talk about tone deaf.

@HayesBrown let a “who said that” GIF from “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” do the talking for him.

Baldwin declined to comment to USA TODAY, and has yet to address the controversy.

He first unveiled his Emmy award-winning impersonation of Trump on “SNL” ahead of the 2016 presidential election, a portrayal Trump himself has called “boring,” “unfunny” and “sad.”
