Melissa Joan Hart is being slammed online after complaining on Twitter that Hurricane Maria canceled her family vacation to the Caribbean.
The tweet has since been deleted, but the internet was able to find her words:
“And just like that, our family vacation is canceled. Such a bummer but we plan to hit the @nickresortpuntacana resort another time this year.”
CNN reported that Hurricane Maria had made landfall on the Caribbean island of the Dominica as a Category 5 hurricane and 14 people died.
Dominica government spokesman Charles Jong says people on the island have “gone into survival mode”.
Many jumped on Hart for her tactless comment...
The 41-year-old actress responded on Instagram sharing messages of love to those impacted by Hurricane Maria and other recent natural disasters.
“A little light humor, considering the devastation of recent natural events. God be with everyone affected by the storms, earthquakes, fires, droughts, etc.”
