This morning, Dalma Maradona received harsh criticism on social media after posting a somewhat unfortunate tweet. It was in the midst of the tragic fire that occurred this Thursday morning in a building in Recoleta. The daughter of Diego Armando Maradona complained about the traffic cuts that affected that area and there were not a few who quickly marked his ignorance of the facts.
Dalma is a few weeks away from giving birth to her second daughter, Azul. The 35-year-old actress had a medical shift on Paraguay Street, very close to the place where the terrible fire occurred that left at least five fatalities and 35 injured. But she was unaware of the situation.
Claudia Villafañe’s daughter had a sudden fit of fury due to the traffic chaos in the area and turned to her social networks to complain and ask her more than 900,000 followers what was happening in the area. “What the hell is going on in Paraguay street?! I have a medical shift down that street and everything is cut off!”, Gianinna’s sister wrote along with several angry emojis. This was published a few minutes after 8:30 in the morning, at the exact moment when the rescue teams and firefighters were in full swing.
Thus, the Twitter users did not let him pass the message and demanded that he be more respectful. “More respect, baby. A fire and half the family died. You have to listen to the news before leaving home and not complain”, a woman told him. “Doesn’t it occur to you that maybe something serious happened? Like for example a fire where adults and children died?”, another person wrote. Given the criticism received, Dalma decided to remove the controversial tweet, although a while later he reflected on it: “Give me even one cool reason to use Twitter!“said the mother of Roma.
