A judge may have just ordered the woman accused of stalking actor Alec Baldwin to stay away from him, but Baldwin himself isn’t backing down.

The “30 Rock” star, who is well-known for his Twitter rants, took to the microblogging site Tuesday to lash out at Genevieve Sabourin.

Sabourin, 40, is a Canadian actress who has been charged with aggravated harassment and stalking.

Police say Sabourin sent emails and text messages to Baldwin in which she professed her love, told him she wanted to have his baby, and asked for money.

Baldwin tweeted: “Isn’t it odd when an accused stalker is in handcuffs, being taken away by the cops, yet smiles for the cameras?”

In another tweet, directed to his new fiancée Hilaria Thomas, the actor wrote: “I am lucky and grateful in my life now, no matter what the motivations of certain others. @hilariathomas”

Thomas herself has jumped into the fray. When a Baldwin Twitter follower posted that she keep her schedule private to ensure her safety, the 28-year-old yoga instructor tweeted: “Life stops when u let crazy people dictate ur activities. My @YogaVidaNYC sched is always posted on http://yogavida.com”

Experts worry that Baldwin’s tweets may add fuel to the fire.

“He gave her exactly what she wanted,” Rhonda Saunders, a Los Angeles County assistant district attorney  who specializes in stalking cases told ABC News.  “He responded to her. She got a reaction from him and that’s what stalkers want.”

Baldwin and Sabourin met in 2002 on the set of the film “The Adventures of Pluto Nash,” in which the actor had a cameo. Sabourin is credited on IMDb as part of the crew.

Court records show Sabourin and Baldwin once shared a dinner together, and Baldwin reportedly offered her advice as a favor to a friend.

Baldwin told police their relationship took a frightening turn when Sabourin tried to track him down three times over the past two weeks.

According to court documents, Sabourin’s alleged emails to Baldwin said: “I am less than 10 minutes away from you tonight. Say I do to me,” “I am excited … about creating genevieve baldwin,” and “i need to see you now.”

Sabourin is due in court next month.
