First daughter Ivanka Trump appeared to support a rousing acceptance speech Oprah Winfrey gave during Sunday night's Golden Globes broadcast. But she received some criticism for that because Oprah's speech was implicitly critical of President Donald Trump and his administration.

"Just saw @Oprah's empowering & inspiring speech at last night’s #GoldenGlobes," Ivanka tweeted Monday night. "Let’s all come together, women & men, & say #TIMESUP ! #United."

Oprah's speech, which received high praise and some critique throughout the worlds of entertainment and politics, was, at points, implicitly critical of Trump and his administration.

"I want to thank the Hollywood Foreign Press Association because we all know the press is under siege these days," Oprah said. "We also know it's the insatiable dedication to uncovering the absolute truth that keeps us from turning a blind eye to corruption and to injustice."

Oprah also highlighted the wave of sexual misconduct allegations in Hollywood and other industries, which has since emboldened a national movement in support of women's rights.

"To tyrants and victims, and secrets and lies: I want to say that I value the press more than ever before as we try to navigate these complicated times, which brings me to this: what I know for sure is that speaking your truth is the most powerful tool we all have," Oprah continued.

"And I'm especially proud and inspired by all the women who have felt strong enough and empowered enough to speak up and share their personal stories," Oprah said. "Each of us in this room are celebrated because of the stories that we tell, and this year we became the story."

Ivanka's support of Oprah's speech was also notable in that at least 22 women have accused Donald Trump sexual misconduct. Trump, who has flatly denied the claims, came under renewed scrutiny among the wave of allegations that rocked leaders in politics, entertainment, tech, and the media industries.

Here's a few of the responses to Ivanka's tweet:
