Rosie O’Donnell is questioning her estranged daughter Chelsea’s choices. In a tweet addressed toward her 18-year-old adopted daughter, the former View co-host calls the young woman out for asking for privacy only to days later post photos of herself to Instagram.

"18 years ago tomorrow—I met my daughter for the first time…a plea 10 days ago…now a photo shoot #choices,” O’Donnell, 53, tweeted, along with a screen shot of Chelsea’s plea from over a week ago and a recent photo of her posing with a puppy on Instagram. 

In Chelsea’s plea posted on Oct. 20, she asked for people to stop tagging her in photos of O’Donnell and expressed that she doesn’t “want to hear anything” about her mom.

The teen recently conducted an interview, however, with Inside Edition, which is set to air on Nov. 2. During the chat, she claims she can never love her adoptive mother again.

The tension between Chelsea and Rosie became public after Chelsea went missing in August. As previously reported, Chelsea, then a minor, was found with a 25-year-old man named Steven M. Sheerer, whom she had met on the dating app Tinder. After she turned 18, Chelsea chose to go live with her birth mother.

Rosie expressed at the time that her daughter suffers from mental illness, and during a stand-up show earlier this month, the comedian explained that her family has been dealing with the drama for some time.

“I love all of my kids,” Rosie said. “My daughter has been in the news. It’s been in the news, but it’s not news to the family. It’s been a decade long. As Mom, my wish is for love and peace and wait until it’s done…Chelsea just turned 18,” she added. “For adopted children 18 is a magic number. At 18 they’re gonna rebel any way they can, any way they can get your attention. I keep thinking I see Chelsea. When your kid isn’t there you see them everywhere.”
