"Do you know how awful you have to be to annoy Robin Roberts?" asks one fan.
UPDATE at 12:43pm PT on 12/14: Omarosa reacted to Robin Roberts' "Bye, Felicia" remark, telling Inside Edition, "That was petty. It's a black woman civil war." Original story below.
The former star of "The Apprentice" sat down with Michael Strahan to give her side of the story, denying reports she was fired and explaining why she decided to resign.
"[Chief of Staff] John Kelly and I had a very straightforward discussion about concerns that I had, issues that I raised and, as a result, I resigned," she said. "But when I have my story to tell as the only African-American woman in this White House; as a senior staff and assistant to the president, I have seen things that have made me uncomfortable, that have upset me, that have affected me deeply and emotionally, that has affected my community and my people. And when I can tell my story, it is a profound story that I know the world will want to hear."
After airing the pre-taped interview, the show cut back to Strahan, George Stephanopoulos and Roberts. "She says she has a story to tell, and I'm sure she'll be selling that story. Bye, Felicia," said Roberts.
That shady little gem was not missed by Twitter, who celebrated the moment and quickly made Robin's name shoot to the top of the trends list.
Political commentator Angela Rye was also applauded for her reaction to Omarosa's exit, after she erupted in celebration over the news on CNN on Wednesday. Saying she was just "going to be petty" for a second, Rye added, "Bye girl! Good bye, good riddance, good bye" as Brooke Baldwin, April Ryan and Symone Sanders broke into laughter.
