Instagram star: Pals’ ‘classless’ wedding ruined my birthday
She couldn’t mask her anger.
Abigail Breslin clapped back at an internet troll who slammed the actress for wearing a face mask after her late father lost his battle to COVID-19.
Breslin, 25, had posted a photo of herself wearing a mask while riding a rollercoaster when an Instagram user, dubbed @chesty1987, commented on the pic, “Who’s the pathetic loser wearing a mask?”
The “Scream Queens” star didn’t take the snub lightly, responding to the IG user by commenting back, “That pathetic loser would be me, someone who lost their dad due to someone not wearing a mask and giving him Covid. You can kindly go f–k off now.”
But the internet troll continued the rampage, suggesting that wearing masks amid the pandemic won’t save lives and that her father was just “weak.”
“I’m pretty sure wearing a mask isn’t going to save anyones life lol. Clearly I know more than her if she thinks someone who wasn’t wearing a mask killed her father when in reality he was weak,” @Chesty1987 wrote, adding that they have never worn a mask and has “never been sick once.”
Breslin shared a screenshot of the nasty comments and asked fans to help retaliate, writing, “would love if you could all report this @chesty1987 person. To say my dad died because he was ‘weak’ is something I will not tolerate.”
And the “Little Miss Sunshine” star again felt she had to defend herself against trolls who then called her out for not wearing a mask in a group photo she posted from inside a club.
“We took [our masks] off for one photo. Everyone present was vaccinated as well as being tested before hand. I was calling someone out for telling me my father was ‘weak’ because he passed away from Covid and said I was a ‘pathetic loser’ for wearing my mask on a public ride with strangers,” she wrote. “I wear my mask always around others Except for friends I know are vaccinated and have been tested beforehand.”
She also added that it would be her “last post for a while” because she doesn’t feel like she needs to further explain herself.
Breslin announced that her dad, Michael Breslin, died in February 2021 from COVID-19 at the age of 78.
“At 6:32 PM EST , my sweet, perfect, amazing, heroic, wonderful dada passed away after my family and I said goodbye,” she wrote at the time, adding that it was the coronavirus that “cut my sweet daddy’s life too short.”
Earlier that month she had asked fans for “prayers and positivity” after he was put on a ventilator.
“In the meantime, please continue to wear your masks and follow COVID protocol. Thank you,” she had said.
