Meghan McCain fired back at insensitive critics after she posted a Christmas tribute to her late father, Sen. John McCain.

The co-host of ABC’s “The View” tweeted out a special message on Christmas Eve to her late father, who died in August at the age of 81.

“I love you. Merry Christmas Dad,” she tweeted Monday night.

Immediately, another Twitter user trolled her post with the message: “Do this in private.”

Many came to her defense, blasting the critic for the remark.

But McCain rose to her own defense with a follow-up tweet, responding to the troll publicly.

McCain has honored her father several times since his death and after she spoke at his funeral. She tweeted in October that missing him that “physically hurts my heart,” and again in November, she paid tribute to him in a Veterans Day message.

McCain found plenty of support following her Christmas Eve tweet, as many shared memories of loved ones they had lost and were also missing especially during holiday season.
