A Californian woman is criticized on social media for posting “out of tune” images on Instagram as wildfires sweep the West Coast.
Earlier this week, Colette LeClair, a self-styled influencer, posted two photos of herself on a beach in the San Francisco area wearing a bright orange dress. Behind her, the sky is also an orange shade of fires.

In the opening caption, which has since been changed, LeClair said it was his last day in San Francisco before moving to Los Angeles, according to a screenshot of the caption.
“I found some gorgeous dresses on sale and they are all linked on coletteprime.com in the most recent post!”

However, LeClair’s post was quickly declared insensitive.
On Thursday, author Caroline Moss tweeted a screenshot of the original caption and Instagram post, criticizing LeClair.
“WE LIVE IN HELL,” wrote Moss Twitter. “(This is an influencer who just posted a photo of clothes she sells by * posing * on San Francisco beach as bushfires rage around her.)

Since then, LeClair’s original caption has been changed and captions have been disabled.
As of Friday, the post read, “My last day here! I wanted to say goodbye to the ocean and the beach and do something I’ve enjoyed so much here for years – TRIPOD PHOTO. Currently I’m collecting lots of clothes to donate-yay ! this won’t make it to me in LA, but there is someone here who will love it. “

Despite LeClair’s change of tone on his Instagram post, people were still frustrated by the post, calling it “dark” and “out of tune”.
However, LeClair told Yahoo he was just trying to say goodbye to San Francisco – and the beach he loves – before moving to Los Angeles.
“I take pictures on the beach,” he told the website. “I love the beach.”
“I went to the beach, put on a dress that I was donating the next day,” she added.
He also told Yahoo that the fires are “heartbreaking”.
“I always google fires and have been since they started, as most people in California would do,” he said. “I’m very sorry about the fires.”
