Johnny Depp's 16-year-old daughter managed to escape the chaos of the terror attacks in Paris Friday night after leaving a house party in the city early. The horrible events ended up causing the deaths of 129 people and injured 352 others.
The model later posted a selfie on Instagram, captioning the snap, "This was right before I left the house tonight to go to a party where all my friends are still locked inside waiting for this to be over. I'm so lucky to have left when i did and to be home safe but I've never seen more panic in my life than on the streets on my way home."
"This kind of cruelty is heartbreaking," she continued. "Sending love and prayers to everyone anywhere near this danger. Stay inside #prayforparis." Not long after the post went up, several of her followers criticized her for it, calling her selfie inappropriate.
Lily soon responded to that backlash with a photo of the Eiffel Tower, writing, "People were complaining that my last photo discussing the paris attacks was a selfie. If what you're worried about is what photo I post to talk about the paris attacks and not the attacks themselves then you are very small minded."
"That was the last photo I took before the attacks happened," she continued. "It is a terrifying and emotional night for everyone here in paris, please only express good vibes and love. that is what we need right now." She went on to post a snapshot of a news broadcast about the attacks, captioning it, "On a pas peur #prayforparis."
It's a shame that people are so quick to criticize others on social media. Being in the heart of Paris when those attacks were going on had to be truly frightening, and we're glad that she made it home too.
