A professional violinist sparked an outrage on Twitter after sarcastically thanking Amtrak for derailing the train, then demanding they retrieve her violin.

Train 188 was on its way from Washington to New York, carrying 238 commuters and five crew members when it derailed. Seven people died in the crash.

Kim, a violinist with the Washington National Opera, tweeted the message that caused instant backlash just minutes after the train crashed outside of Philadelphia.

Thanks a lot for derailing my train," Kim tweeted out to Amtrak. "Can I please get my violin back from the 2nd car of train?"

Kim soon deleted the tweet and then her entire account after people ridiculed her for caring more about violin than human lives.
