Melissa Joan Hart slammed for complaining that Hurricane Maria ruined her vacation plans

Actress Melissa Joan Hart is being criticized for an Instagram post she shared during the aftermath of the deadly Hurricane Maria.

Hart, 41, apparently complained that Hurricane Maria ruined her family’s vacation plans by sharing a screenshot of a weather alert she received notifying her of the travel changes caused by the Category 5 storm.

“And just like that, our family vacation is canceled," she captioned the screenshot. "Such a bummer but we plan to hit the @nickresortpuntacana resort another time this year.”

Many bashed Hart on social media in response to the post, claiming it was tone-deaf. 

"I think you should be more concerned with the people that live there instead of your meaningless vacation," one user responded.

Hurricane Maria left 3 million people living in Puerto Rico completely without power and over a dozen dead in Dominica.

The "Sabrina the Teenage Witch" star tried to do some damage control by deleting the post and sharing kind words to Puerto Ricans and this post labeled: “...a little light humor."
