Many criticised the timing of the First Daughter's post.
Singer Halsey has some opinions on Ivanka Trump's latest controversial photo. Halsey criticised the timing of the 36-year-old First Daughter's Twitter photo with her youngest child amid reports that the US Department of Heath and Human Services had lost track of up to 1,500 migrant children in the United States.
The president's daughter tweeted a picture of her and her son with a heart emoji and the hashtag #SundayMorning.
Two separate controversies concerning migrant families had dominated the news cycle for days and many reacted strongly to Ivanka's photo.
Quote tweeting the photo, Halsey wrote "I wonder what #SundayMorning is like for the parents of 1500 lost children your father is responsible for. Fuck your #SundayMorning"
Some Twitter users pointed out that it was "indelicate" for the First Daughter to post this photo considering the ongoing situation.
I'm not American so as an external point of view I think the problem is in how indelicate and out of place is to post such photo if there's this situation going on... Of course she's going to get hate— KyuSara (@_KyuSara) May 27, 2018
While others urged Halsey not to blame Ivanka for her father's actions.
She got nothing to do with her father's actions stop harassing her and focus on him— Tranquility Base Raul & Casino (@Raulzeiro) May 27, 2018
Other celebrities weighed in on the photo as well.
Isn't it the just the best to snuggle your little one -- knowing exactly where they are, safe in your arms? It's the best. The BEST. Right, Ivanka? Right? https://t.co/X79r8aWInc— Patton Oswalt (@pattonoswalt) May 27, 2018
Over the weekend #WhereAreTheChildren trended on Twitter in response to the growing controversy and many, celebrity and non-celebrity alike, are understandably shaken by the situation.
