LeAnn Rimes is mourning the loss of a friend. Shortly after sharing the news someone close to her has passed away, a stranger had the gall to ask about her recent nip slip mishap!

One of LeAnn Rimes's friends has died in a plane crash. The shocking news was revealed on Twitter Thursday, although some of the singer's followers failed to react with much compassion.

"Just found out a friend died in a plane crash," LeAnn Rimes tweeted without naming any names, though she did later say the fatal incident occurred in Dallas.

"Life gets put into serious perspective," the wife of Eddie Cibrian went on to say. "It's a very sad day."

In response to a caring follower who offered her condolences on the loss, LeAnn Rimes went on to share of the deceased friend, "They have 2 young boys 18 months apart. The youngest is 8 months and she, the wife is 27."

Changing the topic of conversation to Wednesday night's nip slip incident, another person tweeted to the singer "It's amazing there are photographers within a few feet of you every second."

The 30-year-old, who had attended the NOH8 event in Hollywood, seemed to not quite understand the message, believing it was in reference to something about her pants! She replied, "You have no idea...ops, so I had to fix my pants, one pic. My friends are dying in plane crashes, I'm focused on other things."

A helpful third party pointed out the difference, noting, "They are talking about your nip slip not you fixing your pants. Still not a big deal though."

Regardless, the songstress went on to retweet this message, "Life is too short to stress yourself with people who don't even deserve to be an issue in your life."

Life's also too short to cancel travel plans, apparently. LeAnn Rimes went on to write Thursday evening with exclamation mark-speckled enthusiasm, "Headed to VEGAS!!!!"

Our condolences go out to the family of LeAnn Rimes's friend.
