New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio (D-N.Y.) came under fire for dancing the night away with his wife in the Big Apple on New Years Eve.

On Friday, critics responded to a video of de Blasio dancing in Times Square that was posted to his official Twitter page. This video came after he told the public to watch the New Years Eve event “from home.”

TV personality Meghan McCain slammed the mayor in a tweet on Friday for shutting down New York and hosting a private party, saying “everyone hates you DeBlasio.”

On Thursday, the Democratic mayor had advised New Yorkers to watch the “most special” event on TV and said “don’t go down there.”

“Don’t believe any doubting Thomases who are saying it’s not going to be special because there won’t be a million people in Times Square,” the mayor stated. “Actually, it’s going to be the most special, poignant and moving New Year’s Eve. Everyone watch from home on TV, don’t go down there. It’s going to be powerful.”

Some described the mayor’s post as “tone deaf” while others said it openly mocked the citizens of New York.
