90s pop star Mariah Carey caused a stir on Twitter this week when she posted photos of herself posing with Hillary, who she referred to as "President Clinton."

The "Dreamlover" singer posted selfies taken with the Clintons with a caption thanking the controversial couple for "everything you have done and continue to do for our country."

The post quickly promoted a backlash as Twitter users took issue with Carey's allegiance to the Clintons and the seemingly veiled dig at President Donald Trump.

"What’s it like to hug a rapist?" one user asked, in reference to the image of Carey posing with former President Bill Clinton.

"How disappointing to see another celebrity coming out this way!" another commenter added.

"After all the exposure of crimes by the Clintons, Hollywood continues to support the most corrupt couple in political history."

According to Breitbart, Carey was among the famous figures — including the Clintons — who attended Barbra Streisand’s Madison Square Garden concert over the weekend.

Carey posted a picture to her 21 million Twitter followers, showing the five-time Grammy Award-winner with the Clintons.

“The honor is ours; it’s not every day you meet a queen,” Clinton, who lost handily to Trump in 2016, wrote.

Streisand faced backlash after giving a shoutout to the Clintons during her Madison Square Garden performance, praising Bill and expressing her desire to perform at Hillary’s inauguration (which never happened).

“A great president needs a sense of history and unquenchable thirst for knowledge,” she said of former President Bill Clinton.

“And the compassion that would not allow children to be separated from their parents.”

Streisand also attempted to troll President Trump with a remixed rendition of “Send in the Clowns.”

Trump supporters in the audience were visibly irritated.

As Breitbart News reported:

New York Magazine Washington Correspondent Olivia Nuzzi gave a play-by-play of Streisand’s seemingly impromptu political moment during the concert.

According to her tweets, the singer polled the crowd to find out if there were more Democrats or Republicans and proceeded to sing “a parody of Send in the Clowns about Trump.”

The Trump supporters in attendance, Nuzzi said, were irritated and shouted “Just sing!”

This is not the first time Carey celebrated meeting a politically-charged figure.

Last November, the singer posted a picture alongside disgraced quarterback Colin Kaepernick with the caption, “Such an honor to meet @kaepernick7 today!”
