"Vive La France! #Paris," Lowe tweeted as the news broke followed by, "Oh, NOW France closes its borders #Hollande," an hour later.
Vive La France! #Paris— Rob Lowe (@RobLowe) November 13, 2015
Oh, NOW France closes its borders. #Hollande— Rob Lowe (@RobLowe) November 13, 2015
The border comment seemingly applies to Europe's recent influx of refugees seeking asylum from the Middle East, and Lowe criticizing France for letting them into the country as they try to find new countries for residence.
However, Lowe's critiques didn't stop there. The Grinder actor also goes on to belittle President of France Francois Hollande's speech about the attacks on his country's capital.
"This is either the worst translation of an important speech ever, or one of the worst ever given. #Hollande," Lowe tweets.

Lowe's ill-timed and insensitive tweets as dozens are declared dead in Paris were met with criticism of its own from his Twitter followers, who called out the actor for his lack of tact.
@RobLowe so disappointed with the heartless tweet. Get real Hollywood.— Tom Morrison (@ThomasMorrison) November 13, 2015
@RobLowe Get in the sea. Grow some sensitivity.— Dean Smith (@deansmith7) November 13, 2015
@RobLowe this is the worst tweet of all time— Anthony Brian Smith (@AnthonyBLSmith) November 13, 2015
Lowe did not respond to any of the angry tweeters but instead moved on from the Paris tragedy to ripping Ridley Scott and his film The Martian.
