#ThanksNorthKorea: Nikki Haley Gets Bashed for 4th of July Tweet
U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley may have picked the wrong day to complain about her job...
Following an intercontinental ballistic missile test by North Korea, Haley requested an emergency meeting of the U.N. Security Council.
The meeting is expected to happen Wednesday afternoon.
Haley tweeted her frustration at spending her Independence Day holiday in high-level meetings, using the hashtag #ThanksNorthKorea.
Spending my 4th in meetings all day. #ThanksNorthKorea

Some social media users took issue with Haley's tweet:
The amount of arrogance in this tweet is baffling. Is serving the American people an inconvenience for you? If so, feel free to step down.

What job did you think you were signing up for, exactly?

Did you think being the United States ambassador to the United Nations was a 9-5 job with holidays off?

The nerve of that Kim Jong-un, cutting into your 4th of July plans.

It's your job. Deal with it. Is there a single Trump official who doesn't whine?

Dear @nikkihaley You are a public servant. You are paid to do this work. You accepted this job. And many people work this day. Get over it.

Well, you are the one who decided to serve in this administration, so don't expect anyone to feel bad for you

Wonder what the GOP would have said had Hillary tweeted that as Secretary of State.

Hmm were you assuming a 9-5, five day week in that sort of role? Maybe working at Walmart is more suited to your needs?

Sorry you were inconvenienced. Also, reducing an international crisis to a snarky hash tag makes u sound like a gibbering idiot. Happy 4th!
