Outlander's very own Claire Fraser is publicly responding to fans who are criticizing her decision to not attend the season six premiere. Caitríona Balfe, who gave birth to her son last August, is begging fans for a little compassion despite being disappointed in her decision.

The premiere, which takes place Thursday night in London, will feature all the cast members and stars of the show—including Balfe's leading man, Sam Heughan. The new mom took to Twitter to address some of the mom-shaming she's been receiving from fans of the show.

"To all those saying it's shameful I'm not there in person, I understand you're disappointed but I also ask for some understanding as a new mom," Balfe tweeted Wednesday.

"I'm trying to do the best I can and not being able to fly across the world like I used to is a change but we are adapting," she continued.

In the original tweet from STARZ, the premiere announcement makes it clear that Caitríona Balfe would be attending the entire thing, just virtually. Many fans didn't hold back their disappointment that Balfe wouldn't be there in person with the rest of the cast.

Caitríona will be tuning into the panel virtually from Los Angeles, where she is currently living with her husband Tony McGill and their six-month-old son.

It's incredibly frustrating to see so many people who know and love the show (one that This Author is also a big fan of) attacking the beloved lead for doing what's best for not only herself but her family. We're still in the middle of a global pandemic, and flying internationally both with and without your baby is so incredibly challenging even during "normal" times. Showing a little grace goes a long way, especially to new moms—no matter who they are or what they do for a living.

In a follow-up tweet, Balfe added: "I'll be there virtually for red carpet and panel and it's not @Outlander_STARZ's fault …We're all trying to give you all the best experience we can in new and challenging circumstances."

Stay strong, mama! You've got this.
