‘Talk about tone deaf… let me stop as we evacuate for a photo in front of our private jet.’

‘Although it’s none of your damn business we were not the only ones in this plane. Every seat was occupied and my son had to sit in my lap,’ she wrote.
‘EVERYONE IS POSTING ON SM (social media) 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.
‘We also did not have paper work for our dogs to fly commercial as every vet was closed and every flight was booked and there is no way in hell we would leave them behind. Fortunately we were able to get a Plane to take them with us.’
