People magazine noticed that Hayes, who played the wife of Kevin James' character on the show's first season before her off-screen death, has been liking fan's angry tweets about her character's departure. 

"My family and I have tuned out. If Kevin Can Wait, so can we — for you to have a bigger career than him!!!" read one of the tweets the 41-year-old actress hit the like button on. 

"'We were literally just running out of ideas' — Kevin James. Based off this I don't expect your show to last very long. [Hayes] is better off," read another

After being let go from her role, Hayes tweeted, "True, I've been let go from the show. Very sad, I had a great experience season 1. Thank you for all the support from our wonderful fans."

James, 52, told the New York Daily News in October that they "were literally just running out of ideas" and that the show was originally supposed to center on a single father.

Leah Remini, James' former "King of Queens" costar and guest on the first season of "Kevin Can Wait," took her spot as a series regular.

"Kevin Can Wait" airs Mondays at 9 p.m. ET on CBS.
