AceShowbiz - January Jones has been criticised by fans for comments she made in response to a meme about anxiety.

The backlash came following a remark made by the actress on a post shared by MyTherapistSays on Instagram.

A meme uploaded to the account on Sunday, June 02 read, "Me scrolling through Instagram finding memes relating to my irrational fears and anxiety."

Alongside the words was a photo of "Friends" character Ross Geller, with a subtitle of a popular quote from the show, which said, "Ah, humour based on my pain. Ah, ha, ha."

Taking to the comments section of the post, the "Mad Men" star wrote, "What is everyone nervous about? We all die. Find love or don't. Have fun or don't. Eat food and then get rid of it. It's easy."
