Martha Stewart is in hot water (does that joke work?) for eschewing climate concerns and hacking off a bit of Greenland iceberg for her cocktail.

The infamous chef posted about her time on a cruise through Greenland with a carousel of photos, including one capturing a couple of chunks of ice on a rolling cart that she and her guests used to cool their beverages.

“Martha the ice caps are melting don’t put them in your drink,” someone commented.

“I generally love Martha and the excesses of her life because she’s about beautiful gardens, homes, and food, but wealthy white people drinking their iceberg cocktails while the planet is in flames is a bit tone deaf,” reads another comment.

Or, my personal favorite, “If you can’t find fresh icebergs for your cocktails, store bought is fine.”

Also in the post were several photos of the icebergs in question, presumably taken as she chugged by on her boat, hunting for the right piece.

As far as I can tell, people who know what they’re talking about have yet to chime in, so, who knows, maybe feeding a little bit of glacier to some billionaires isn’t hurting anybody, but one would hope that someone like Martha, who generally seems to be in touch with, you know, the world, would have the good sense to maybe just leave that part out of her Instagram post. We want to see you do fancy rich stuff, Martha, but don’t make us feel bad about it.

She has yet to address the controversy and continues to post about the trip, so, Martha remains unbothered.
