Rob Lowe Shades Bella Thorne
Lowe, 53, posted Thorne's tweet on his social media account. He sarcastically apologized to the 20-year-old actress after she said that the mudslides made it impossible for her to attend her boyfriend's first day on tour.
"This attitude is why people hate celebrities/Hollywood. Bella, I'm sorry you were inconvenienced. We will try to move out our dead quicker," wrote Lowe.
Bella Thorne Claims Ignorance
The DUFF star has since deleted her "insensitive" tweet, but later on, she posted a follow-up tweet. Thorne explained that she was unaware that the California mudslides were what caused 101 to be shut down.
In her tweet, Thorne also wished that everyone was able to return home to their loved ones.
California Mudslides Death Toll
The California mudslides in the Montecito area of Santa Barbara County started on Tuesday morning. As of late, 17 people have been confirmed dead. The number of missing individuals has risen to 43 as of Thursday.
Lowe revealed that some of his friends residing in the area have gone missing. However, he said that his house was not damaged by the mudslides.
Celebrities Affected By California Mudslides
The same cannot be said about the homes of Oprah Winfrey and Jeff Bridges. The actor shared the news on his Twitter account and said that despite the damage to his house, he and his family are all safe.
Our home has been severely damaged, but we are safe, and so thankful for that and for the first responders who are working tirelessly to save people. We are heartbroken over the loss of lives in our community. Your prayers and best wishes are most appreciated.

Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi were also forced to evacuate their home in the area. The couple also left their property last month due to the California wildfires.
Despite the recent incidents, DeGeneres said that she feels proud to be a resident of Montecito because everyone who received help from firefighters and first responders was just so grateful. During Thursday's episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show, the talk show host FaceTimed with Winfrey who was in Montecito at that time.
Winfrey said that some of her neighbors' houses can no longer be found due to the mudslide. The talk show host, however, said that the situation in her area has already improved.
