It has been a week for Melissa Joan Hart, and it’s best Thursday.
First she needed to swallow the scoop that “Sabrina the Teenage Witch” was once being reimagined as a depressing “Riverdale”-esque display for the CW with out her, and now she’s dealing with backlash for a severely tone-deaf put up about canceling her holiday because of Hurricane Maria.
“And just like that, our family vacation is canceled,” Hart captioned a screenshot of a climate alert that’s since been deleted. “Such a bummer but we plan to hit the @nickresortpuntacana resort another time this year.”
The alert learn that the hurricane made landfall at the Caribbean island of Dominica as a Category five typhoon.
Hurricane Maria left reportedly “widespread devastation” in its wake in Dominica with most sustained winds of 160 mph, ensuing within the deaths of no less than 14 other people, in line with CNN. Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands have been subsequent to be hit, leaving the U.S. territories with none energy.
Since Salem is now not round to tug Hart frequently, the web luckily complied, stating that at the “bummer” scale, canceling a holiday ranks lovely low in comparison to preventing on your lifestyles in the course of a typhoon.
But Hart best doubled down at the insensitivity through posting a meme on Instagram that referenced the Pixar movie “Moana,” writing, “Someone find Maui and take back the heart.”
“A little light humor, considering the devastation of recent natural events,” she captioned the picture. “God be with everyone affected by the storms, earthquakes, fires, droughts, etc.”
However, the actress appeared to understand her mistake later, sharing a heartfelt tribute to these impacted through Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico.
Maybe now is a superb time to place the telephone down and get started donating to the comfort efforts, yeah?
