“My neighborhood in Manhattan is eviscerated and looks like a war zone,” she wrote.

My neighborhood in Manhattan is eviscerated and looks like a war zone. DeBlasio and Cuomo are an utter disgrace. This is not America. Our leaders have abandoned us and continue to let great American cities burn to the ground and be destroyed. I never could have fathomed this

After the tweet went viral, Meghan responded, admitting that she wasn’t actually in New York at the time. The 35-year-old said she was just tweeting about what she saw “on the news” and “different media platforms”:

1. I am six months pregnant – a gossip organization is about to run a story of where me and my family are currently. I sent a tweet yesterday based on the news I saw happening in midtown we all have been watching all over different media platforms…

She added that she supports “peaceful protests” and was “absolutely heartbroken about the destruction in the city I have loved since I moved to when I was 18”:

2. I support the peaceful protests, their movement but am absolutely heartbroken about the destruction in the city I have loved since I moved to when I was 18. It is important to have your voice heard and I hope everyone stays safe and healthy.
