Chill or be chilled.

Martha Stewart has come under fire for using “a small iceberg” to chill her cocktail during a luxe cruise traveling to Greenland from Iceland.

Taking to social media Monday, the 82-year-old shared photos of her getaway with her 1.9 million Instagram followers, telling them the unique way she kept her drink cool.

“We actually captured a small iceberg for our cocktails tonight,” she captioned her post, in part.

In the first snap, Stewart can be seen proudly holding up her drink with a stunning backdrop of Greenland’s fjords behind her.

The second image shows two chunks of ice sitting on a black cart, possibly the one she used to chill her beverage.

After uploading the carousel on the platform, Stewart’s post was quickly flooded with disapproving comments from followers as some pointed out the ongoing climate crisis.

“Martha the ice caps are melting don’t put them in your drink,” another penned, before a third criticized her for being insensitive because “wealthy white people drinking their iceberg cocktails while the planet is in flames is a bit tone deaf.”

“Global warming and melting ice caps but we need glacier ice for cocktails?! Talk about tone def [sic]. Been a fan for years but I’ve seen enough caviar lately as I struggle to buy groceries that I’m out,” another added.

But not all comments took aim at Stewart, as some fans thanked her for the tip while others poked fun at the gaffe.

“Incredible to see — those blues are beautiful in the ice! Thank you for sharing. What an adventure and definitely cocktail celebration worthy,” one fan commented.

Another quipped, “If you can’t find fresh icebergs for your cocktails store bought is fine.”
