Actress Abigail Breslin was forced to defend her friendship with Tiffany Trump, the youngest daughter of President-elect Donald Trump, after a photo she posted online with the 23-year-old angered fans.

Ms. Breslin, who rose to fame with her 2006 role in “Little Miss Sunshine,” faced backlash for a photo she posted on Instagram of herself, Ms. Trump and fashion designer Andrew Warren with the caption, “happy bday drewwwwwwww.” Her fans were angry the 20-year-old would associate with someone whose father’s policies they don’t agree with.

Ms. Breslin took to Twitter to tell the haters to back off.

ALRIGHT Everyone commenting mean s— on my last insta, I have known Tiff for years she’s a beautiful soul and regardless of ur … Political views, do not take it out on her it is completely unfair,” she wrote.

“Also I would like to ask every single person on here how they’d feel if they were persecuted solely based on the actions of their parents,” she added.

She later posted a note to Instagram sticking up for Ms. Trump and telling her critics to “reevaluate” their lives.

“To everyone who’s being horrible and disgusting to me rn [right now], I didn’t vote for trump. It’s none of anyone’s business, but I didn’t,” she wrote Wednesday.

“However, it is honestly disgusting of people to be so cruel about tiff who is a wonderful and kind person,” she continued. “If you’re judging me for hanging out with someone I’ve known for years at our friends bday party, you need to reevaluate your life.”

Her post received nearly 10,000 likes in one day.

Mr. Warren, who cast Ms. Trump to model his New York-based brand Just Drew during New York Fashion Week in September, had to defend his friendship with the incoming first daughter back in November.

“To start off imagine going on Facebook and seeing everyone you thought was your friend hating on you and saying they want to murder your family. It’s fine that everyone has their stance and posting it is fine — but reposting things like killing Tiffany’s entire family (including her) isn’t,” Mr. Warren wrote at the time. “Never once has she personally done anything to offend anyone, and she is one of the nicest, most genuine people that I know.”
