A California woman is beaten up on social media for posting “toneless” pictures on Instagram while wildfires sweep the west coast.
Earlier this week, Colette LeClair, a self-described influencer, posted two photos of herself on a beach in the San Francisco area in a bright orange dress. Behind her, the sky is also a shade of orange from the fires.

In the first caption, which has since been edited, LeClair said, according to a screenshot of the caption, it was her last day in San Francisco before moving to Los Angeles.
“I found some gorgeous dresses for sale and they are all linked in the last post on coletteprime.com!”

However, LeClair’s post was quickly labeled insensitive.
On Thursday, author Caroline Moss tweeted a screenshot of the original signature and Instagram post and criticized LeClair.
“We live in hell,” Moss wrote on Twitter. “(This is an influencer who just posted a photo of clothes she sells by * posing in * on the beach in San Francisco while wildfires rage around her).”

Since then, LeClair has changed the original label and disabled the labels.
From Friday on the post said: “My last day here! Wanted to say goodbye to the ocean and beach and do something I’ve enjoyed here so much for years – TRIPOD PHOTOS. Right now collecting tons of clothes to donate! This one won’t make it to LA with me, but there is someone here who will love it. “

Despite LeClair’s change of tone on her Instagram post, people were still frustrated with the post, calling it “grim” and “deaf”.
However, LeClair told Yahoo that she was just trying to say goodbye to San Francisco – and the beach she loves – before moving to Los Angeles.
“I take pictures on the beach,” she told the website. “I love the beach.”
“I went to the beach and was wearing a dress I donated the next day,” she added.
She also told Yahoo that the fires are “heartbreaking”.
“I always google the fires and it was from the start like most people in California would,” she said. “I’m very sorry for the fires.”
