The violinist Jennifer Kim is being subjected to a storm of social media protest after tweeting about her violin in the aftermath of the Amtrak train crash.
‘Thanks a lot for derailing my train,’ she tweeted at Amtrak through her account @vinoviolin. ‘Can I please get my violin back from the 2nd car of the train?’
A host of hostile tweets followed, attacking her insensitivity when fellow-passengers lay dead and injured. She swiftly took down her social media accounts.
Do be careful out there.
