Melissa Joan Hart Bashed After Insensitive Hurricane Maria Remark

Melissa Joan Hart Bashed After Insensitive Hurricane Maria Remark”

Some took offense to her remarks while others stood up for her.

Dominican Republic closed most of its ports ahead of Hurricane Maria, but the country's 34,000-barrel-per-day refinery was still running, the government said on Wednesday.

"And just like that, our family vacation is canceled". It's now headed toward the Dominican Republic, Turks and Caicos and the Bahamas.

The Sabrina the Teenage Witch alum has since deleted the post, but fans screenshotted it and started sharing it around.

Besides these posts, Hart has not addressed the vacation comment since it was taken down.

"Yea- you should take this down".

Though Hart has yet to acknowledge her social media gaffe, she's attempted to make up for it with a series of tribute posts to the various natural disasters wreaking havoc on the world.

Refidomsa, owned by the island's government and Venezuela's state-run oil firm Petróleos de Venezuela, S.A. (PDVSA) [PDVSA.UL], this week issued a "yellow alert" to the industry ahead of Maria, which means it will monitor the storm to decide on further action, the Dominican firm said.

While a number attacked Hart for her being insensitive to the affected families of Hurricane Maria, some of her followers chose to understand her, instead.

But another person wrote: "Better safe than sorry. We do not want anything to happen to you or your family", someone else wrote. "It's called being human".

On Wednesday, she posted in support of Mexico following a devastating quake, and also shared a post in honor of Puerto Rico. "My thoughts are with all my friends in Puerto Rico and the surrounding islands that are being hit by #hurricaneMaria today". Drop a comment below.
