Nikki Haley tried to shame a popcorn retailer over a missed delivery, and other social media users blasted her.
Haley — President Donald Trump’s former ambassador to the United Nations, former South Carolina governor and rumored 2024 presidential candidate — publicly called out the Popcorn Factory for apparently missing a birthday delivery to her nephew.
“Ok @PopcornFactory two messed up birthday orders missed delivery dates with no explanation,” Haley tweeted Monday morning. “First time I gave you the benefit of the doubt. Second one tells me not to buy from you again. #DisappointedNephew”

Other Twitter users urged Haley to put her problems in perspective, in light of the coronavirus pandemic that’s killed more than 162,000 in the U.S. and the apparently willful destruction of the U.S. Postal Service.
Are u effing kidding me? There are 162,000 dead Americans.

He is probably disappointed he has you for an Aunt. I don’t think it has anything to do with the popcorn. 🤷🏻♀️

Talk to Trump's Postmaster General.

If they ship by USPS I'll give you three guesses why they didn't arrive on time and the answer is Louis DeJoy.

I also though they hated cancel culture, which she is obviously doing here. The @gop, "lower taxes cuts and hypocrisy, it's all we got, oh judges too".

A former R Gov & UN Amb. Nikki Haley who preaches in these troubling time we must give small businesses that extra consideration attacks a small popcorn private biz with 4,000 followers with her 600K-plus followers over a delivery as GOP sabotage USPS to put out of biz. 🙄

Poor Nikki Haley…maybe their company is dealing with a pandemic? Maybe they're working with a smaller workforce because companies across the country are crumbling? But please, tell us more about your hero in the White House.

Don’t do this here. This is the equivalent of “do you know who I am?!”

This is like an advertisement for @JoeBiden who will keep basic services running as they should. Joe will keep the mail delivered and the trains running in time. Joe will keep us safe.

Did you choose the first-class USPS delivery option with no tracking number?
Because that would explain it.

You're blaming Popcorn Factory for shipping delays? It appears they use the USPS, which is currently being dismantled by the GOP. Being ravaged by a pandemic doesn't help either. Nice try. pic.twitter.com/Te1o7wcmpn

Wow…if only we had a postal service that we could trust. If only the postmaster wasn't a @realDonaldTrump operative.

Thank you for using your platform to speak on the issues that really matters. It would be silly to address all the injustices done at the hands of the Trump administration when the Popcorn Factory is out here messing up orders

should have had them mail it @USPS oh wait Donnie wants to close that.
Always like when a prominent figure tries to shame a company 🤦♂️🤔
So sorry for your 1st World issues. By the way $30, $50 or even a $100 on popcorn is a crappy gift for your nephew.

First DeJoy came for the mail in ballots, then he came for my popcorn. Thoughts and prayers.

You know what my daughter had to wait 3 WEEKS for? Her COVID test results.
You know what got lost? Her COVID test results.
Maybe destroying the post office isn't such a great idea after all.#DisappointedMom doesn't care about popcorn.
