The young woman whose tweet about cleaning President Trump's star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame went viral said she was "blown away by how much disrespect" she received online.
"I think that we should have more respect from both sides of the aisle, and I was blown away by how much disrespect that I got, how rude people were to me, for a simple act of cleaning up our president, who is the highest office of the land," MaKenna Greenwald said on Fox News Monday. "He should be respected, whether it's his Hollywood star or just talking about him in public."
Greenwald gained attention after she tweeted a series of photos of herself cleaning up Trump's Hollywood star with the caption "Stopped to clean @realDonaldTrump Hollywood Star. Nothing but respect for MY president. #RaisedRight."
Greenwald said the star was covered with Sharpie scribbles and expletives and that she cleaned it up with a makeup wipe from her purse.
"My friends and I were walking down the Hollywood Boulevard as tourists basically, and as we walked by and saw it I just stopped and thought that I should clean it up," Greenwald said. "I was surprised that somebody hadn't done it before, but I guess that this happens a lot."
Sean Hannity and Eric Trump took to Twitter to praise MaKenna's actions. Hannity tweeted, "Wow. Great American. @CNN @NBCNews @JoeNBC (who called the @POTUS a schmuck, liar, goon etc.). "Watch and learn what respect for the office is" and Eric Trump tweeted "Thank you MaKenna! #MakeAmericaGreatAgain."
The post, which got more than 51,000 retweets and more than 200,000 likes, also received backlash.
"Keep in mind YOUR president wants to see millions of Americans die with this proposed healthcare bill," one tweet read on Fox said.
"I'm not saying you shouldn't love your country. I'm saying you shouldn't love Trump," another tweet read.
A spoof tweet that read "Stopped to clean @MerylStreep Hollywood Star. Nothing but respect for MY president #RaisedRight" earned more than 84,000 retweets and 327,000 likes.
