The tweet garnered mixed reactions from the Twitter users who mostly pointed out Meghan McCain’s old tweets about Vice President Kamla Harris. “She rarely takes a break from her trolling of Kamala Harris,” wrote a Twitter user. “Glass house, Megs? Aren’t you always attacking someone, via social media? I mean, 90 percent of your articles are negative attack ads against Dems,” said another Twitter user. One said, "So, are you taking a good hard long look at yourself?"

Just hours before Cheslie Kryst jumped to her death, she had posted a picture on Instagram with the caption, "May this day bring you rest and peace". The 30-year-old winner of Miss USA 2019, then leaped to her death from the 29th floor of the Orion condominium building in the theatre district of Manhattan at 7:05 am on Sunday, January 30. The NYPD has said that the death was a suicide. However, the cause of her death will be ruled by the medical examiner after an autopsy.
