Meghan McCain is still grieving the loss of her father, Senator John McCain, but an internet troll seemed to have a problem with that.


The 34-year-old, who is currently a co-host on "The View," took to her Twitter account to share a picture of her late father but was rudely approached by the troll.

The man, only identified as Count Tankerton, told her to do her grieving in private, which led Meghan to issue a serious statement on the subject.


Ever since she lost her father, Meghan hasn't been shy about paying tribute to the man she considered her best friend across several social media platforms.


It is never easy to say goodbye to someone we love, and there is no correct way of expressing the sorrow of losing them, so it is of utmost importance to respect those feelings.


In honor of her first Christmas without her father by her side, Meghan remembered him with a photo of the Senator next to a huge grill full of meat, as well as a message saying 'I love you. Merry Christmas Dad, wherever you are.'


It isn't uncommon for someone to address a loved one that has passed away; after all, doing it gives people a heartwarming feeling, as if they were still around.


But while the troll considered grieving a practice to be carried indoors, Meghan shared that she did so in public because her father also shared his life in public.


Along with the response towards the troll, and all the haters lurking in the shadows, the 34-year-old took the opportunity to send positive vibes to those missing a loved one on Christmas night.

"I love you. Merry Christmas Dad, wherever you are."

Senator McCain passed away back in August 2018, at the age of 81, around one year after being diagnosed with a glioblastoma, a known, rare and particularly aggressive brain cancer.
