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 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.

Fuck off @RobLowe she was most hated person in Scotland.

Yes, behave yourself! How dare you fall out of leftist lockstep?!

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

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

@RobLowe She was a cunt.

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