High-profile celebrities immediately shunned her tweet.

Chrissy Teigen, a model, writer, and cook, tweeted "ew go away" in response.


Actress Alyssa Milano, famed for roles on Who's the Boss? and Charmed, tweeted back "Great! You can make a lofty donation to the Time's Up Legal Defense Fund that is available to support your father's accusers."


Keith Olbermann, a sports and political commentator most recently with GQ, wrote "Spoiler Alert: it was about your father."


The general commentariat also took umbrage with the remarks.

"Is this woman so clueless that she isn't aware of how #GoldenGlobes2018 message included the disgrace of her father's sexual perversions?," asked one user.


Many other users responded with a slew of reaction gifs showing people with shocked reactions — ranging from actor Nathan Fillion to Oprah herself — and included a number of responses to the famous scene "You can't sit with us" scene from Mean Girls.
