Hochstein’s former co-star, Joanna Krupa, took to Twitter to launch a tirade of vitriol. “All those (expletive) posting and showing off w their private jets in Miami, why don’t u offer to help families and animals that can’t get out?” Krupa wrote on Twitter on Sept. 7.  

She added, “Otherwise stop posting and showing off when people and animals are being left behind during this catastrophic hurricane. Idiots !”

In response to the negative attention, Hochstein updated the caption of her Instagram post to address “all of these ignorant people leaving nasty comments.”

“Although it’s none of your damn business we were not the only ones in this plane,” she fired back.

“Every seat was occupied and my son had to sit in my lap. EVERYONE IS POSTING ON SM about how they escaped! This happens to be mine and I don’t need to apologize or hide to ANYONE ABOUT HOW WE DO SO.”
