The tweet by the 20-year-old, read “F*** u 101 to santa barbra [sic]. I’m missing my boyfriends first date on his tour:(((”

Lowe captioned the image, “This attitude is why people hate celebrities/Hollywood. Bella, I’m sorry you were inconvenienced. We will try to move out our dead quicker.”

Bella has since deleted her original tweet, issuing an apology on Thursday.

“F*** just caught up on some news had no idea why the 101 was shut down…get home to your family safe,” adding a heart emoji.

The mudslides, which hit Tuesday morning, have brought deadly destruction to neighbourhoods in the Montecito area of Santa Barbara County, with 17 people – including four children – confirmed dead. The number of missing could be as high as 43, authorities said late Thursday.

Lowe sadly shared that he has friends among the missing.

“More terrible stories of loss today. Friends missing, some gone forever. Pray for Montecito and know: EVERY day could be your last. Embrace that,” he posted on Instagram.

Many residents have also been left homeless.
