Alec Baldwin's daughter Ireland Baldwin was left shocked after a stranger made an incredibly inappropriate remark to her at a pharmacy.

Taking to Instagram, the 25-year-old shared that she had been at a pharmacy when a man felt it was OK to comment on a "period stain" on her pants.

Unsurprisingly, the incident left Ireland upset, with the model going so far as to say it was one of the worst things she'd ever experienced.

"I just want to say that probably one of the top five worst things that's ever happened to me just happened," she said.

"And I've been through some really, really f**ked up s**t."

She was shocked that the man felt compelled to point out the stain to other customers and then told her to "plug it up".

"Coming up behind me in a CVS and telling me that I have a period stain on my pants. There's just nothing worse," she said.

Some followers began to make fun of Ireland for saying it was one of the worst things that had ever happened to her, but some fans came to her defence.

One user wrote, "Do y’all not understand that men look at periods as disgusting when it’s nothing women should be shamed for? Do you understand there are nice, politer ways to express things?

"He could have nicely, quietly said she had a stain and moved on with his day yet proceeded to tell her to plug it up. I just have no words. It’s not only humiliating but just disrespectful. These comments are surprising me truly."

Others shared their sympathies and asked whether she was alright.

Just recently, Ireland went through what was, no doubt, another of the worst things she's ever experienced after being allegedly mugged in a parking lot.

Taking to Instagram in August she wrote, "Yesterday in the late afternoon, I was attacked by a woman who was high out of her mind on drugs and desperate for cash.

"She decked me in my face in a parking lot and took my belongings and jumped in a getaway car while her husband took off. All was sorted with the police and she was arrested. Luckily I had witnesses and got assisted really quickly."

The model continued, "The cops told me this is happening frequently because people are desperate for money right now due to Coronavirus and people being out of work. There is a lot of theft and muggings going down.

"Posting this to remind everyone to be really careful and watch your surroundings. These are really difficult times and we need to look out for one another."
