Leo Varadkar's tweet about Princess Diana has upset a lot of Irish people
We bet he regrets this one.
As yesterday marked 20 years since Princess Diana died in a car crash in Paris, many fans and celebs alike tweeted about the late icon.
And not to be left out, so did our Taoiseach, Leo Varadkar.
However, his tweet was met with much criticism, and he faced major backlash online for not mentioning a word about the homeless crisis in his own country.
Mr Varadkar wrote: "Still remember where I was the moment I heard Diana had died. Hard to believe it's twenty years."
Still remember where I was the moment I heard Diana had died. Hard to believe it's twenty years. #Diana20Years

And this is the reaction he received:

This is incredibly insensitive considering a homeless man and homeless woman died today in Ireland.

In 20 years will you remember where you were on Aug31 2017 when a homeless man died on Suffolk Street? Do your bloody job. Deal with crises.

Will you remember where you were today when 2 homeless people died under your watch. Start caring for the vulnerable not the over privileged
