The woman who started the debate on Hilaria Baldwin's Spanish roots has said the influencer should "own what she did".
The woman, who posts @lenibriscoe on Twitter, said the influencer and yoga instructor doesn't get clean despite posting videos on Instagram and interviewing the New York Times.
Briscoe – who is herself white and attended the elite Vassar liberal arts college in New York – said Baldwin was "insulting and false" to falsely claim she was from Spain for taking opportunities from people who are truly Hispanic Have roots.
In her first interview, Briscoe told DailyMail.com she had little regret and posted the tweet on December 21st out of boredom.
Briscoe, speaking on condition of anonymity, said, “People asked me if you had nothing better to do and the answer is no, I don't.
"It's a pandemic, it's cold outside and I'm not celebrating Christmas."

“Yes, I am a white girl. I'm a white girl, "the 36-year-old influencer admitted after a backlash. “Let us make it very clear that there are many white people in Europe and my family is white. Ethnically, I'm a mix of many, many, many things. & # 39;
Baldwin and her husband Alec Baldwin have been under close watch over their Christmas holidays since Briscoe's tweet sparked a firestorm on social media.
The tweet said, "You must admire Hilaria Baldwin's dedication to her decade-long grift in which she poses as a Spaniard."
It was liked 20,000 times and resulted in dozens of people finding examples of Baldwin with a Spanish accent, a harrowing contrast to her childhood in Boston, where she was known as Hillary and viewed as white by her classmates.
Briscoe, who lives in New York, said she fired the tweet because she was "locked up" during the pandemic.
There wasn't a specific thing Baldwin did that set it off, but Briscoe said, "My friends took their yoga class in New York and their accent was really consistent (Spanish)."
She added: “It is insulting and wrong to pose as an immigrant and speak English as a second language and acquire the real experiences of actual migrant women. That didn't happen.
She wrote in a post that people in the park think she is the nanny because her children are blonde and have blue eyes. Something happens to colored mothers who actually have an accent.
“This is offensive, these are tough experiences that people actually have, and she pretended to be. It's not really necessary. She could be a hot white influencer. Lots of people do that. & # 39;
Briscoe said Baldwin is seizing opportunities that should be given to people who are truly Hispanic. Because of the limited space on TV shows and magazines, those opportunities should have benefited someone other than a white person

Briscoe said, “When I started I didn't know she was posing as (Spanish) and other people found articles in which she talked about (Spanish) culture. That makes it worse for me. & # 39;
When Briscoe sent the tweet, she thought "not that much was going to happen" and that "maybe people would talk about it on Twitter and it would be funny".
She said, "That was until they did these response videos and now they haven't really helped, right?"
In her video, Baldwin admitted, "Yes, I'm a white girl," while Alec made his own video berating critics and comparing Briscoe to a used coaster.
Briscoe replied on Twitter, "Did Alec Baldwin just call me Basura (garbage) and compare me to QAnon Sir, that's not it."
After that, Briscoe's notifications "got completely out of control" and their followers rose from 1,700 to 8,200.
She said: & # 39; The first few articles on NBC were very pro Hillary, as Hilaria shoots back, only the tone seemed very corporate since Alec Baldwin is on (NBC Show) 30 Rock.
“As it got bigger, I found it embarrassing for the Baldwins.
“People have asked me if you have nothing better to do and the answer is no, not me. It's a pandemic, it's cold outside, and I'm not celebrating Christmas.
"If I were that rich, I'd have better things to do."

Internet experts quickly discovered details about Hilaria's parents, Dr. Kathryn Hayward and David Thomas, who worked in the USA for years before moving to Mallorca in 2011. Hilaria's brother Jeremy (right) married a Spanish woman and they all live in Spain

Briscoe revealed that she had been inundated with messages since her original tweet, some of which were not friendly.
She said, “Some people said I did it because I was jealous and uglier. I don't care if I'm uglier. It seems like a lot of work getting them to look like. & # 39;
Briscoe continued her ongoing comment on Twitter, once writing, “Please don't ask me to expose Meghan Markle. There is nothing to expose. It is already public knowledge that her husband is a Nazi cosplayer who used racist slurs. & # 39;
Briscoe said she felt "some responsibility" for the social media storm and that a lot of people "reached out to me to try to lead the conversation".
She said, “In this case, it was fun, but social media can be really cruel and harmful when there is a bunch, when someone is doing something that people don't like. I don't think that's great.
In this case, people said some cruel and unnecessary things. That bothered me. There are so many things to criticize Hillary Baldwin for that there is no need to make fun of the number of her children, that was really offensive to me. & # 39;
In her video, Baldwin admitted, "Yes, I'm a white girl," while Alec made his own video berating critics and comparing Briscoe to a used coaster. Briscoe replied on Twitter, "Did Alec Baldwin just call me Basura (garbage) and compare me to QAnon Sir, that's not that?"
Hilaria Baldwin (left), who was recently called to present herself as a Spaniard, appeared in a cooking segment in which she apparently forgot the English word for "cucumber".
She added, “It reminded me of people making fun of Melania Trump for modeling naked. Who cares? It doesn't hurt anyone. She did other things to make fun of. There are elements of misogyny that come up, but it's important to call people up when they do things that are harmful to what I think. & # 39;
When asked what she would say if she sat across from Baldwin and her husband, Briscoe said, "I wouldn't sit at the same table with Alec Baldwin," who was taking an anger management class last year because of a confrontation in a parking lot in New York.
Briscoe said, “I have an instinct for self-preservation.
“If I could speak to Hilaria alone, I would say that she should apologize to all immigrants and English learners, as well as black mothers who are actually mistaken for their children's nannies. She should own what she did. & # 39;
Even after speaking to the New York Times, Baldwin doesn't own what she did. Briscoe added.
Briscoe urged people to seek the perspective of Hispanic women who are really affected by Baldwin's actions.
She pointed to a satirical video by comedian Suni Reyes in which she summed up her feelings and took up the controversy in a great way.
