In a post the 26-year-old shared to Instagram on Thursday, October 28, Ireland wrote: “Amongst some of the most abhorrent and threatening comments, emails, text messages, and voicemails I’ve been getting… this beautiful comment stands alone."

"I know my dad, you simply don’t. I love you, Dad ❤️," the actress hit back at trolls who were coming after her 63-year-old father.

Ireland —whose mother is actress Kim Basinger — had posted a screenshot of a comment from Tracey Nolan, who had worked in the production office that handled one of the actor's Thomas the Tank Engine movies.

“I’d dealt with typing up some pretty goofy celebrity riders in my day but NOT your dads,” Nolan wrote to the Campus Caller star. “He only wanted to make sure he had milk and cereal in his hotel room for when his daughter was visiting."

Alec has faced intense backlash since the accidental shooting — caused by a prop firearm mistakenly being loaded with live rounds of ammunition — claimed the life of cinematographer Halyna Hutchins as well as injuring director Joel Souza.

The New York Film Academy alum has defended her father tirelessly all week. After conservative commentator Candace Owens attacked the 30 Rock star on social media — going as far as to call the tragedy "poetic justice" for Donald Trump — Ireland slammed the commentator calling her "the most disgusting, hateful, cancerous human being" she has ever come across.

"Regardless of your foul opinions most of the time, the fact that you would disrespect the life of a woman who was accidentally and tragically killed… Shame on you,” the fashion model wrote on Instagram.
