Once a dad, always a dad! Rob Lowe taught Bella Thorne a lesson about humility on Jan. 10, when she had the gall to complain about traffic due to a mudslide in Montecito, CA that left at least 17 dead and hundreds without homes.
"F–k u 101 [freeway] to Santa Barbara. I'm missing my boyfriend's first day on his tour :(" Bella's new man Mod Sun was performing at the Velvet Jones club in Santa Barbara on Jan. 10, but the roads have been closed for days since the first big rainstorm in months hit the same area that was decimated by wildfires and sent mud flowing down the mountains in Montecito, CA. Like, we get it that missing your plans sucks, but it doesn't suck nearly as much as losing your home or a loved one.
"This attitude is why people hate celebrities/Hollywood," said Rob, a Montecito resident, alongside a screenshot of Bella's tweet. "Bella, I’m sorry you were inconvenienced. We will try to move out our dead quicker." Yikes. One day earlier, Rob had updated fans on the dire situation, saying, "Mourning the dead in our little town tonight. Praying for the survivors and preparing for whatever may come. #Montecito."
Bella quickly followed up her tweet saying "F–k just caught up on some news, had no idea why the 101 was shut down… get home to your family safe." Somehow we find that hard to believe with the mudslides making national news for two days straight. Plus, celebrities have been talking about the natural disaster nonstop. Oprah Winfrey and Ellen DeGeneres also live in the neighborhood, and have been outspoken about the tragedy.
"This is how deep the mud is," said Oprah, sharing a video of the damage. "And the house in back is gone. What a day! Praying for our community again in Santa Barbara." Ellen also shared a video, saying "This is not a river. This is the 101 freeway in my neighborhood right now. Montecito needs your love and support." Hopefully Bella learned her lesson!
