First daughter Ivanka Trump received a rude reception Saturday night after she posted a three-tweet statement about the violence in Charlottesville — almost one year to the day after the white-nationalist “Unite the Right” rally that left one woman dead.

According to Ivanka, who also serves as a White House adviser to her father, President Donald Trump, “One year ago in Charlottesville, we witnessed an ugly display of hatred, racism, bigotry & violence.”

She added, “While Americans are blessed to live in a nation that protects liberty, freedom of speech and diversity of opinion, there is no place for white supremacy, racism and neo-nazism in our great country. Rather than tearing each other down with hatred, racism & violence, we can lift one another up, strengthen our communities and strive to help every American achieve his or her full potential!”

With many commenters noting her father defended “both sides” at the time, Ivanka got an earful for saying too little, too late.
