The Internet can be a really horrible place.
And Jennie Garth just found this out in the most unfortunate of ways.
The veteran actress - forever best known for having played Kelly Taylor throughout the entirety of Beverly, Hills 90210 and for even reprising this role in the later EW reboot - shared a very sweet photo (below) on her Instagram page on Friday.
It was in honor of International Women's Day and it featured Garth's three daughters: Luca, 21, Lola, 16, and Fiona, 12; all of whom she shared with ex-husband Peter Facinelli.
“These women,” the 46-year old wrote as a captioned, adding: “#internationalwomensday #sisters.”
Nice cause, nice sentiment, pretty picture.
End of story, right? We wish...
Because this image marked Garth's first social media post since the tragic death of Luke Perry five days prior, some users actually called her out for not referencing Perry online.
They actually took issue with Garth for not making a public statement about the death of her long-time co-star.
This is appalling on pretty much every level, as no one should ever judge anyone else for how they choose to mourn.
Moreover, why not doing so in a public forum such as Instagram somehow carry extra weight or meaning?
We could go on and on about the inanity and insensivity of blasting a celebrity for where and when they decide to share their feelings -- but Garth thankfully took it upon herself to call these trolls out for this ridiculouss criticism.
“Hey everyone … I chose to post a pic of my girls today," she wrote in response to these remark, explaining/adding:
"Because they are my life. Because today is a day to celebrate all women.
"It took a lot for me to want to celebrate anything. I thought about it and I know that’s the way my dear friend would have wanted it.”
She continued of Perry, who died on March 4 from a stroke:
“His kids were his life. And anyone who knew him knows that and knows he didn’t give a f*#k about social media. So please don’t assume or judge or make rude comments. That’s really uncool. Sincerely, Jennie.”
Garth and Perry starred as Kelly Taylor and Dylan McKay, respectively, on the teen drama from 1990 to 2000.
Their characters ended the series as a romantic item.
The Mystery Girls alum is also set to return for a Beverly Hills, 90210 revival of sorts, along with original cast members Tori Spelling (Donna Martin), Jason Priestley (Brandon Walsh), Ian Ziering (Steve Sanders), Brian Austin Green (David Silver) and Gabrielle Carteris (Andrea Zuckerman).
In the wake of Perry's passing, multiple 90210 alums have shared their condolences online.
Which is also their right, of course.
“My dear friend of 29 years, Luke Perry, was one of those truly special people who really cared,” Jason Priestly wrote via Instagram on Thursday, March 7, adding:
“Luke was not only a star, he was an incredibly bright light that was extinguished far too soon … and that is why I, and so many others, are in so much pain today.”
Elsewhere, Shannen Doherty posted on Instagram on Tuesday, March 5:
“Yesterday morning I got a phone call that devastated me. I’m struggling with this loss and am having a hard time with my thoughts. But, my heart goes out to his family and friends who were blessed by his light in their (and mine) lives.
"Processing this is impossible right now.”
The 2000’s have indeed been the age of reboots. For the last decade, it seems to be a competition among ’90s TV actors to see who can manage to get their old TV show revived. And the next show that’s due up for a makeover appears to be Beverly Hills 90210.
Tori Spelling was seen at CBS TV Studios with Jenni Garth back in March, but it now it seems that a revamped 90210 is inevitable as it’s currently being marketed to studios.

My Monday Motivation? . That I get to work with my best friend. Been celebrating holiday seasons for almost three decades with @jenniegarth . . Your the Kelly to my Donna and the Yin to my Yang. A friendship that was created on television but a sisterhood for a lifetime. Work is always play when it’s with you. . PS… Don’t tell our studio that we were taking bestie selfies on their holiday decorated golf cart. We couldn’t resist. We see golf carts and tinsel and turn into sneaky teenagers again. . #mybestie #girlfriends #girlpower #empowerment #90210 #christmastime #holidayseason
According to recent news, the version of 90210 that’s being peddled to the networks isn’t necessarily a reboot, but more of a revival in the same vein as Gilmore Girls: A Year in A Life. In a nutshell, it sounds like the show is going to pick up the original characters’ lives who would now presumably be in their 40s.
Most of the actors from the original have already signed on: Tori Spelling, Jason Priestley, Ian Ziering, Brian Austin Green, Jenni Garth, and Gabrielle Carteris. Basically, all the actors who have a lot of free time on their hands right now
The only two original actors who are not on the roster are Luke Perry and Shannen Doherty. Right now, Luke Perry is currently busy with Riverdale and unlikely to abandon a good thing when he’s got it. Shannen Doherty has been fairly occupied since going into remission from her battle with breast cancer. Plus, given that Doherty’s character was written off on Season 4 after some backstage conflict (translation: Doherty hated everyone’s guts), she might not be particularly keen to jump back on that bandwagon.
I’ll admit, I’m not a fan of the show; I never watched 90210 as a kid, so I have no skin in this game. But a revival of 90210 just brings back the memories of the fan disappointment that came from the Gilmore Girls revival. I don’t have the enthusiasm about these characters, so I can’t speak for fans of the show, but did anyone really want to see a continuation? This cast will be 40-somethings living in Beverly Hills; isn’t that why we have Real Housewives? I don’t know, I feel like this would be the equivalent of going to your high school reunion, seeing the popular kids again, and realizing that they actually peaked at 18.

The cast of Beverly Hills, 90210 have come a very long way from West Beverly Hills High School.
One of the actors is married to Megan Fox (!!!!)... another is milking her marital problems for reality TV ratings (hi, Tori Spelling!)... and another actually appeared on The CW's version of this classic teen drama, 90210.
What have these stars been up to since their iconic series went off the air? What do they look now?
With Lifetime's Unauthorized Beverly Hills, 90210 Story on the way, we figured it was a good time to catch up with Brandon, Brenda, Dylan and company...

“It was a big decision on my part, but I said, ‘I really like this guy and he really likes me and if we think we have a future together, I need to introduce him to my life as soon as possible,’ ” the actress, 43, tells PEOPLE exclusively.
She adds, “I threw him in 100 percent and he fit in without missing a beat.”
“I’ve always wanted kids,” says the Virginia-raised Abrams, 34, who worked hard to ease his way into a blended family and embraced the prospect of being a stepdad.
“I fell in love with her girls,” he says, and immediately understood they should be a priority.
Alternately funny (“I vow to take your jokes about my skinny fatness like a man”) and heartfelt (“I vow to protect you, care for you and love you forever”), he brought Garth and the wedding guests to tears.
For her part, Garth also gave a nod to Abrams’ “brave choice” in her vows, praising not just his willingness to lovingly “co-exist with me and my three girls,” but also “four girl dogs!”

What fabulous news!
Jennie Garth apparently tied the knot with boyfriend Dave Abrams outside Los Angeles on Saturday, and we couldn't be happier for the insanely hot couple.
The pair of actors met on a blind date in December, and got engaged just four months later in April while on vacay in Mexico.
This is the 90210 actress' third marriage, and her three daughters, Luca Bella, Lola Ray, and Fiona Eve all assisted in their Summery ceremony!
But it wasn't just a family affair, because Jennie's Mystery Girls co-stars Tori Spelling and Miguel Pinzon were also there to show their support.
Congrats again, guys!

- Shannen Doherty
- Jennie Garth
- Jason Priestley
- Luke Perry
- Tori Spelling
- Brian Austin Green
The Unauthorized Beverly Hills, 90210 Story will be executive produced by Peter M. Green and Howard Braunstein, written by Jeff Roda and directed by Vanessa Parise.
