It hasn't even been a week since a gunman opened fire in a California bar, killing 12 people—including Tamera Mowry's niece, Alaina Housley—and there is already backlash, but not directed where you might think. People are criticizing Mowry and her husband, Adam, as they grieve the loss of their niece, and this celeb mom has choice words for anyone who dares.

A clip of Tamera and Adam's interview with "CBS News" is making the rounds.

"Alaina was beautiful," Tamera Mowry said about her niece. "And she was my friend. Yes, there needs to be a change, but all the noise, nothing's been done."

"The Real" cohost joined her husband and his brother, Arik Housley, Alaina's father, during the interview.

Since then, people have expressed tough criticism for the Hollywood star, saying she didn't talk enough about gun control, and she's not backing down—at all.

"You are a part of the problem. This is the prime example I spoke about in my interview," she clapped in her Instagram post that has since been deleted, sharing a photo of a response she received about her interview. "If you have love in your heart. You don't talk this way. You obviously missed the message. And don't you ever judge the death of my niece."
