Martha Stewart has been chastised for being ‘tone deaf’ after garnishing her cocktail with iceberg slices.
The 82-year-old entrepreneur is presently on vacation in Greenland, where she spent some time on a luxurious yacht cruising along the east coast.
She shared snippets of her vacation with admirers on Instagram, with one shot displaying a close-up of magnificent glaciers and another revealing bits of the iceberg on a bar cart.
‘End of the first zodiac cruise from @swanhelleniccruises into a very beautiful fjord on the east coast of Greenland,’ she captioned the post.
‘We actually captured a small iceberg for our cocktails tonight.’
However, the post was met with criticism from supporters, who accused her of neglecting pressing climate change problems.
One fumed: ‘I generally love Martha and the excesses of her life because he’s about beautiful gardens, homes, and food, but wealthy white people drinking their iceberg cocktails while the planet is in flames is a bit tone deaf [sic].’
‘“If you can’t find fresh icebergs for your cocktails store bought is fine,’” a follower quipped.
‘Martha the ice caps are melting don’t put them in your drink,’ another suggested.
A commenter said: ‘Global warming and melting ice caps but we need glacier ice for cocktails?! Talk about tone def.
‘Been a fan for years but I’ve seen enough caviar lately as I struggle to buy groceries that I’m out [sic].’
An Instagram user begged: ‘Martha! Leave the icebergs alone!’
‘You should have left the ice right where it was. You have heard of global warming haven’t you,’ an unimpressed fan added.
Martha has yet to address the backlash, but has been sharing more pictures from her trip on social media, including a boat trip to see a fjord and a tour of a chocolate maker’s facility.
The famed novelist made waves earlier this year when she revealed her Sports Illustrated photoshoot, making her the magazine’s oldest cover star.
‘When I heard that I was going to be on the cover of Sports Illustrated Swimsuit, I thought, Oh, that’s pretty good, I’m going to be the oldest person I think ever on a cover of Sports Illustrated,’ she told the outlet of the snaps, in which she posed in a white swimsuit.
‘And I don’t think about age very much, but I thought that this is kind of historic.
‘Age is not the determining factor in terms of friendship or in terms of success, but what people do, how people think, how people act, that’s what’s important and not your age.’
