North Korea, take notice. Nikki Haley is not happy with you.

The Indian American former South Carolina governor and current U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations took to Twitter around 5 p.m. ET on the Fourth of July to thank the country for keeping her in meetings all day, despite it being a U.S. holiday.

"Spending my 4th in meetings all day, #ThanksNorthKorea," the public figure said.

The tweet — which can be found here — was followed by a plethora of comments chastising Haley, recommending she remember the thousands of U.S. troops protecting the country in various areas across the globe, also on Independence Day.

"While I appreciate your service to our nation, perhaps you should be thanking the nearly 200,000 US troops serving overseas on #FourthOfJuly," one comment read.

Another comment read, "The amount of arrogance in this tweet is baffling. Is serving the American people an inconvenience for you? If so, feel free to step down."

While many took Haley down a peg, others defended her. Among them, one tweet read, "She was being lighthearted for once. She and her husband sacrifice everyday and if anyone is thankful for our soldiers on the DMZ it is her."
