“To everyone who’s being horrible and disgusting to me rn, I didn’t vote for [T]rump,” she wrote. “It’s none of anyone’s business, but I didn’t. However, it is honestly disgusting of people to be so cruel about [T]iff who is a wonderful and kind person. If you’re judging me for hanging out with someone I’ve known for years at a friend’s bday party, you need to reevaluate your life.”
Breslin, a New York City native, is close friends with Warren, who is the grandson of designer David Warren. In December 2015, New York magazine noted that Warren—the “self-proclaimed Kris Jenner” of his clique—is part of a close circle of New York–raised kids including Robert F. Kennedy Jr.’s daughter Kyra Kennedy, Reya Benitez, who is the daughter of D.J. and music producer John “Jellybean” Benitez, and Gaia Matisse, the great-great-granddaughter of Henri Matisse.
During the election, Warren, like Breslin, posted on behalf of his friend and the president elect’s youngest daughter; he encouraged commenters to refrain from posting disrespectful or hurtful posts. “I'm just here to be there for my best friend—again not to start a political war,” he wrote.
Tiffany Trump, who grew up in L.A. with her mother, Marla Maples, is also part of the group, which The New York Times referred to as “the Snap Pack”—in reference to their devotion to Snapchat and Instagram—in April 2016. The newspaper noted that the friends have all given each other nicknames (for example, Matisse is “Koala” and Kennedy is “Hester”).
After posting her Instagram letter, the actress followed up with a couple of tweets on her friend Tiffany’s behalf:
“ALRIGHT everyone commenting mean shit on my insta, I have known Tiff for years. She’s a beautiful soul, and regardless of political views, do not take it out on her it is completely unfair.”

Abigail Breslin: People Shouldn't Be Attacked for Being Friends With the Trumps
When Abigail Breslin posted a photo of her and Tiffany Trump at a birthday dinner for their friend Andrew Warren, the actress didn't anticipate the flood of criticism she'd receive in her comment section.
Breslin was called a Trump supporter—despite numerous anti-Trump posts on her social media accounts—and Tiffany was torn apart by some users for being associated with her father, President-elect Donald Trump.
This isn't right, Breslin made clear in responses on both Twitter and Instagram. People should not be attacked for being friends with a member of the Trump family, and assumptions shouldn't be made about anyone's values—even Tiffany Trump's—just because they know the President-elect.
"Everyone commenting mean shit on my last insta, I have known Tiff for years," Breslin started on Twitter. "She's a beautiful soul, and regardless of your political views, do not take it out on her, it is completely unfair …I would like to ask every single person on here how they'd feel if they were persecuted solely based on the actions of their parents."
