Ivanka's sentiments of sympathy and solidarity were vehemently rejected.

Ivanka Trump received some heavy criticism after she tweeted out against white supremacy on Sunday following the deadly mass shootings at a Walmart in El Paso, Texas and at a mall in Dayton, Ohio.

"As our nation mourns the senseless loss of life in El Paso, Texas and Dayton, Ohio and prays for the victims and their loved ones, we must also raise our voices in rejection of these heinous and cowardly acts of hate, terror and violence." she tweeted. "White supremacy, like all other forms of terrorism, is an evil that must be destroyed."

The twitterverse was quick to throw Ivanka's words back at her, telling her to preach the message to her father, President Donald Trump.

Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) responded pointing the finger at the president as a root cause for the rash of mass shootings in America this year. "Your prayers aren't working. Try checking your dad on his tweets. 251 mass shootings in the U.S. in 216 days." she tweeted. "He incites violence every day w/ his hate agenda & racism. More people are dying b/c he fails to fight white supremacist terrorists."

Celebrities also tweeted out against Ivanka. Andy Cohen responded with, "Are you punking us right now?" While Mia Farrow tweeted, "Ivanka, There came a time when, for ethical reasons, the endurance of the nation and the common good, you needed to stop supporting your father’s discourse and decisions. That time has long passed."

Other Twitter users weren't as tactful, with pointed opinions about the validity of her sentiments and her father. "FYI: Your miserable, race-baiting father actually laughed when confronted w/ the idea of shooting immigrants. Nothing you will ever do or say will ever eclipse the fact your father is an unadulterated piece of garbage," one user wrote.

Another tweeted, "You cannot do this. It is too hurtful. If you mean this you must disengage from your father. Otherwise it is meaningless." "Oh, sweetheart. Bless your soul. How about you ACTUALLY talk to your white supremacist daddy first before you even pretend to care honey. You either think you're clever, are oblivious as hell, or in complete and utter denial," another user responded.

The unrelated incidents -- which claimed the lives of nearly 30 people over the weekend -- brings the number of mass shootings to 251 in 2019.
