Thomas Ravenel Slammed for Insensitive Tweet Following Death of Ex Kathryn Dennis' Mom

Following the backlash over the ill-timing tweet, which features a photo of her kids with his mom, the 57-year-old former politician decides to delete both his Twitter and Instagram accounts.

AceShowbiz - "Southern Charm" star Thomas Ravenel seemingly has to mind timing for everything from now. Thomas recently made a social media return, but people weren not impressed by his post as it was deemed insensitive regarding what has just happened to his ex Kathryn Dennis.

On Sunday, August 11, the former politician, who hadn't posted anything on Twitter for months, took to his account to share a photo of daughter Kensie (5) and son Saint (3) with their paternal grandmother. Captioning the photo, Thomas wrote, "The kids with my mom."

Upon seeing the post, fans were reacting strongly to that as most seemingly thought that the post came off offensive considering Kathryn's mom Calhoun Dennis died on Wednesday, August 7, at the age of 59. "You haven't posted since June 1 and you choose the week that your babies lost their maternal grandmother to post your kids with your mom!" one of his follower angrily tweeted. How about adding some condolences to your kids. They lost a loved one too. So insensitive."

Another user added, "Really? Timing is everything. You suck more every day." Another comment, meanwhile, read, "This post is in very poor taste, with its timing."

"Nothing against your mother. But it [is] just an obvious mind game. We all see this. Find some class and Stop!" one other wrote.

Kathryn's mom passed away following a battle with an extended illness and was "surrounded by family" in her South Carolina home at the time of her death. The cause of death has yet to be known, but Allison was battling ovarian cancer prior to her death.

Reps for Kathryn did not respond to request for comment, but a source close to the "Southern Charm" star confirmed the news on Thursday. "Their family requests privacy while they mourn with the sad loss. They're very private people and they want their time to cope," said the source.

The Berkeley County Coroner's Office also confirmed the story to Radar Online. George Oliver told the publication, "Our office was notified and there was a hospice nurse there. We do not respond to a home death. The hospice nurse contacts our office. They provide us with the funeral home details. The funeral home goes to the residence and takes the person away. She chose to stay home surrounded by family."
