Beneath one of Trump’s tweets, Combs wrote: ‘My grandfather died today. He voted for you. He believed you when you said this virus was no worse than the flu. He believed every lie you muttered and sputtered. He died today from Covid-19 one day after his 66th wedding anniversary.’

Combs, who is best known for starring alongside Rose McGowan and Alyssa Milano in the TV drama Charmed, provided no further details about her grandfather’s death.

Following the posting of her tweet Monday, the actress was met with many sympathetic messages from fans sending condolences about the loss of her grandfather. 

However, others blasted the star saying it was irresponsible to place the blame on President Trump. 

‘Sorry for your loss but how dare you blame Trump! Absolutely disgraceful and your wonderful grandfather would probably feel the same way about your despicable behavior!’ one raged. 

Another wrote: ‘I am sorry for your loss. This is very weird to me- projecting blame for someone’s death? Unless someone actually pulls a trigger this is far fetched. Who should I blame for the countless relatives I have lost to cancer?’

However, Combs brushed off criticism about her controversial tweet, later posting: ‘Zero tolerance for Trumpers. Zero. Take it to someone else’s timeline. Not today Satan.’

Combs had lead roles in hit TV shows including Picket Fences and Pretty Little Liars, but is most famous for her role in Aaron Spelling’s teen drama, Charmed. 

The actress played Piper Halliwell in the supernatural series, which aired between 1998 and 2006. 

Like her Charmed co-stars, Rose McGowan and Alyssa Milano, Combs has become an outspoken critic of the current Administration. 

In the days since announcing her grandfather’s death, she has continued to tweet constant criticism of President Trump’s handling of the coronavirus pandemic.  

As of Wednesday morning, more than one million Americans have tested positive to the virus, and 59,000 have died.
