Lisa Hochstein's family evacuated Hurricane Irma three days ago—via private jet.
That alone wouldn't have ruffled any feathers, had the 35-year-old reality star not posted a smiling picture of her family and dogs in front of the aircraft on Instagram three days ago. Lisa, who starred in the second and third seasons of The Real Housewives of Miami, has since came under fire for publishing the picture, which some commenters called "tone deaf" and "stupid."
In her original Instagram caption, Lisa—the wife of plastic surgeon Dr. Lenny Hochstein—thanked her family and friends "who have reached out to help, offer a place to stay, offer help to get out of Miami or just checked on us! And I'm sorry if I haven't gotten back to all of you!"
Lisa explained that her family originally wasn't going to leave their home "partly because of the dogs and a few other things." The Hochsteins "waited until the last minute when we realized that this thing wasn't slowing down," she added, "which definitely made it difficult to get out."
