@RobLowe #respect to you for that, not as amazing as all says but balls of steel.

Lowe had some warm words this afternoon for the late Lady Thatcher:

The world has lost a prime example of the power of character and the female mind. Good bye Mrs Thatcher. #IronLady

— Rob Lowe (@RobLowe) April 8, 2013

What a lovely — and true — sentiment.

Some of Lowe’s followers took issue with his tweet:

@RobLowe This sums up her country's attitude to that "female mind". Lot of people still feeling repercussions today pic.twitter.com/KK2hQqwXJW

@RobLowe I'm afraid as a 40 yo Scot, I totally disagree. I am ashamed that the person who decimated my country's industry was a woman.

@RobLowe you are speaking out of ignorance. That same lady endorsed apartheid and condemned Mandela as a terrorist.

@RobLowe and good riddance! #rotinhellthatcher

— Carolyn (@calcross4) April 8, 2013

@RobLowe you wouldn't say that if she had been POTUS…. Good riddance!!

@RobLowe I love you man, but you and the rest of America have to shut up about this. You have no idea what you are talking about. #Thatcher

@roblowe Now your most recent 'unfollower'. Shame you didn't live under her 'Iron fist', you wouldn't have commented if you had.

— Colette (@Col81979) April 8, 2013

@RobLowe She was a cunt.

— Scott Davies (@spuddy998) April 8, 2013

@RobLowe Oh give over, she was a small minded prick. Hopefully Death will improve her. #thatcher

But the Iron Lady’s legacy speaks for itself, and those who understand her lasting contribution to the cause of liberty could not agree more with Lowe:

@RobLowe I'm from the Falkland Islands, we in particular owe her an awful lot.

@RobLowe Indeed!!

@RobLowe Amen #IronLady

@RobLowe Wonderfully put, kind sir!

— Patrick Swayne (@pswayne7) April 8, 2013

@RobLowe excellent statement #ironlady

— John Overstreet (@JOverstreet44) April 8, 2013

@RobLowe Thank you, we in the UK have lost a truly great lady, an inspiration to me and my generation
