As RadarOnline.com previously reported, Hilaria, 37, spoke out after learning about the death of 42-year-old cinematographer Halyna Hutchins, who along with 48-year-old director Joel Souza was shot last week while rehearsing a scene on the Santa Fe, New Mexico, set.
"MY HEART IS WITH HALYNA. HER HUSBAND. HER SON. THEIR FAMILY AND LOVED ONES. AND MY ALEC," the yoga instructor wrote on Instagram after taking the kids and fleeing the couple's Manhattan home amid the media frenzy. "IT'S SAID, 'THERE ARE NO WORDS' BECAUSE IT'S IMPOSSIBLE TO EXPRESS THE SHOCK AND HEARTACHE OF SUCH A TRAGIC ACCIDENT. HEARTBREAK. LOSS. SUPPORT."
Hilaria has also removed Mom Brain from her Instagram bio.
Her now-defunct, parent-centered podcast has not aired a new episode since December 2020, when she was accused of faking a Spanish accent and lying about her upbringing.
According to The Sun, the trademark for "Mom Brain" is no longer active as of June 2, 2021, as paperwork states that the trademark office "did not receive a response to the previous Office action within the six-month response period."
The reason for the "dead" status, reports the outlet, is because Vaynerstudios, LLC and The Gallery Media Group "abandoned" the trademark.
It was on said podcast that Hilaria once told listeners, "I moved here when I was 19 to get to NYU. My family lives in Spain." Her profile on the Creative Artists Agency even listed Spain as her birthplace.
It was soon discovered that she was actually born in Boston under the name Hillary Lynn Hayward-Thomas, as former classmates from her alma mater, The Cambridge School of Weston, came out in droves to say they attended the prestigious Massachusetts boarding school with her.

Twitter users began questioning why all of Hilaria's kids' names would pay homage to a seemingly made-up heritage, while others began digging up old interviews showing her speaking English with a thick Spanish accent.
One video of a cooking segment from the TODAY show even captured her appearing to struggle with the language, saying, "We have very few ingredients. We have tomatoes, we have, um, how you say in English? Cucumbers."
Following the appropriation scandal, the now-ex-podcast host shared a lengthy video to her Instagram page, addressing the allegations.
"I was born in Boston," she explained at the time. "I've spent some of my childhood in Boston, I've spent some of my childhood in Spain. My family, my brother, my parents, my nephew, everyone is over there in Spain now. I'm here. There was a lot of back and forth my entire life."
For his part, Alec has been "cooperating" with the Santa Fe County Sheriff's Office since last week's shooting accident. He expressed his "sadness" following the tragedy, saying he was "heartbroken" for Hutchins' family and offering his "support" to them.
The movie's director, 48-year-old Joel Souza, was also shot. He sustained a shoulder injury.
