SOFIA Richie’s fans have slammed her for blaming the Santa Ana Winds whipping up the hellish California fires for her “messy bun”.
The model, 21, was accused of gross insensitivity over her post to her 5.8million Instagram followers on Tuesday.
In the post, Sofia poses for a pair of sultry snaps while wearing a simple white blouse along with dazzling gold reptile-print trousers and black heels.
She also wears her blonde locks up in an unkempt bun rather than her typical loose waved style.
Some followers were thrilled by the snaps – with one dubbing her an “actual angel”.
But others were quick to spot her caption – which left some fuming.
As the California wildfires – whipped up by freak winds – continue to spread misery to millions, Sofia wrote: “Santa Ana Winds – messy bun”.
It comes as hundreds of properties are already destroyed and millions face evacuations and blackouts due to the raging infernos.
One angry follower wrote: “200,000 people evacuated and 2 million people without power, but okay go ahead and flex??.”
Another asked: “Could you be anymore insensitive?”
And a third wrote: “And fires. Don’t forget the fires.”
Her throwaway remark is all the more surprising considering she was one of dozens of celebs to have posted about the terrifying blazes.
She shared scary footage on social media last week showing a wall of flames creeping up a hillside near her home.
In 2018, several members of the Kardashian / Jenner family were evacuate as the deadly Woolsey Fire swept California.
Kim Kardashian, 39, said after: “As horrible as this has been, it’s been amazing to see the resilient spirit of everyone involved, and the heroism of those risking their lives on the front line.”
