House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who was accused by critics last week of using her platform to damage a local hair salon owner in San Francisco, was called out on Monday over a tweet she posted celebrating the “hard-working families” across the U.S. on Labor Day.

“Over generations, working people across America built the middle class and secured progress for hard-working families,” Pelosi wrote. “House Democrats are unified in our commitment to America’s working families. Happy #LaborDay!”

The tweet didn't sit well with some commenters who pointed to her recent visit to a hair salon. Security footage obtained by Fox News, time-stamped last Monday at 3:08 p.m., showed the speaker walking through ESalonSF with wet hair and without a mask.

Is it true that while gyms in California have been forced to remain closed to public government employees had access to gyms whenever that wanted? Been reading that so asking for verification. Oh, and nice hair.— DonnaG (@DonnaG14606831) September 7, 2020
As @SpeakerPelosi can get her hair done with no mask, we are now learning gym owners in SF are livid that they are closed but not gyms for city workers!— KatG (@KatGkannon) September 7, 2020
And here’s the Speaker wishing everyone a Happy Labor Day?
With all her stunts, the people should insist on her resignation!
Well... I wish I was working. It's hard to enjoy life when there's bills that cannot be paid and so much stress. We need stimulus and financial help. But all of that is being held up for many months now.— Trey Koehler (@KoehlerTrey) September 8, 2020
So unified that you can’t even come to an agreement with republicans on a stimulus package. I think you guys forgot that you work for us. You guys are terrible at your job and people are suffering because of it. Get a deal done NOW!— David willis (@Dwillz955) September 7, 2020
I find it interesting that some of us work hard, earn little. We are smart, focused, critical thinkers, but can't get hired where the pay is commensurate with the job, yet there are extremely stupid people in the house and senate making millions.— Resistance Senior or Seniorette (@ProfHistoric) September 7, 2020
While you celebrate #LaborDay in your massive home, maybe even having a cookout with your family, there are millions of families in risk of loosing their home and cannot afford to have that cookout. Get off your high horse and agree on a bill without all the pork!!!!— Rosie B. (@RosieB08) September 7, 2020
What would you know about the middle class? while you set up in your Ivory Tower eating your expensive ice cream in the most expensive refrigerator I've ever seen in my life .why haven't you worked on the stimulus package with the Republicans ?— Chancy 🇱🇷 Trump 2020. (@ghkriii) September 7, 2020
What's your temp in your house?
