Martha Stewart has been on her trip since last week.

"End of the first zodiac cruise from @swanhelleniccruises into a very beautiful fjord on the east coast of Greenland. We actually captured a small iceberg for our cocktails tonight," she wrote in a Monday, August 28, Instagram post that showed off the remarkable natural wonders in the water and a chunk of it on a cart indoors.

Commenters were quick to point out the problem with her post, with one person writing, "Martha, the ice caps are melting don’t put them in your drink."

People were outraged that Martha Stewart boasted about taking in an iceberg amid the climate change crisis.

"Global warming and melting ice caps but we need glacier ice for cocktails?! Talk about tone def [sic]," said another. "Been a fan for years but I’ve seen enough caviar lately as I struggle to buy groceries that I’m out."

"You should have left the ice right where it was. You have heard of global warming haven’t you," said a third, while a fourth penned, "Feels a bit irresponsible with global warming."
