Online controversy has centered around the former US ambassador to the United Nations after she complained about postal service delays amid late deliveries nationwide.

Former US ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki Haley, has become the subject of ridicule on social media on Monday following a tweet she made complaining about The Popcorn Factory missing her orders.

The former international ambassador expressed her vexation with the company after “two messed up birthday orders missed delivery dates".

​The tweet saw users mock Haley for her post, with some blaming US Postal Service (USPS) delays in mail delivery after sweeping reforms by the postmaster to the agency, including a reduction of overtime work.

​The hashtag #DisappointedNephew was used frequently, in a display of irony.

​Qasim Rashid, Democratic candidate for the Virginia State House, highlighted that the defunding of the USPS by the Trump appointee is affecting multiple companies, including the The Popcorn Factory, and noted that the decision must be reversed.

​According to the company website, they also ship their products using FedEx.

Scrubs actor Zach Braff also issued a response.

​Anna Swartz, deputy managing editor for Policygenius, gave “thoughts & prayers” to the former ambassador over the USPS delivery problems.

​The Popcorn Factory responded to Haley's tweet, requesting a private message to "resolve this matter".

​Postmaster General Louis DeJoy, a Trump appointee, announced last week that USPS leadership will be reformed, including the removal of two top officials who oversee the organisation's daily operations. Democrats have demanded an inquiry into shipping delays.
