The "Baby Driver" star wants Trump to stop tweeting and start helping. See what she wrote here! Twitter

Eiza González took to Twitter to put Donald Trump on blast after the devastating 7.1 magnitude earthquake that rocked México. The President of the United States sent out a tweet in solidarity with our neighbors down south. "God bless the people of Mexico City," he wrote. "We are with you and will be there for you."

This message did not sit well with the "Baby Driver" star and she quoted his tweet and added: "F*** you HELP OUR COUNTRY instead of just tweeting!!!"

Eiza has been significantly affected by the tremot that hit her home country. She has been posting tweets and asking for all the help they can recruit to help the victims. In a later tweet she wrote: "Let's always keep that solidarity as a country and we will be invincible. Together we are stronger México!"

Eiza was also seeing extremely anguished after news broke of the earthquake. She made a video where she seems completely distraught and crying. In the clip she says she tried to contact her mother Glenda Reyna, but she was not able to get through to her. In a followup post on Instagram stories she said that all was well and her family was safe.

Mexico experienced another major earthquake with a preliminary magnitude of 7.1, according to the U.S. Geological Survey. Mexico's seismological agency set the magnitude at 6.8 and said its center was east of the city in the state of Puebla.  The tremor happened on the day Mexico City commemorates the 32nd anniversary of the most destructive shake that the city experienced in the 80s with preparation drills held earlier in the day in buildings across the city. The 1985 Mexico City earthquake struck in the early morning of 19 September with a moment magnitude of 8.0 and a Mercalli intensity of IX (Violent).

The event caused serious damage to the Greater Mexico City area and the deaths of at least 5,000 people. The sequence of events included a foreshock of magnitude 5.2 that occurred the prior May, the mainshock on September 19, and two large aftershocks. The first of these occurred on September 20 with a magnitude of 7.5 and the second occurred seven months later on April 30, 1986 with a magnitude of 7.0.

It was estimated the earthquake caused between three and four billion USD in damage as 412 buildings collapsed and another 3,124 were seriously damaged in the city. Today's strong tremor has already created major devastations with multiple buildings collapsing and causing significant damage. Videos of the moment the quake hit have been showing how strong the natural occurance was with people in panic.
