Professor is upset about student comments about her lectures. What should I do?

    One of my former supervisors is upset about student feedback for her lectures. There are two problems:

    1. If she provides complete slides with information, students complain that she reads from the slides.
    2. If she doesn't provide complete slides with information, students complain that her slides are incomplete.

    And

    1. If she provides webcasts of her lectures, students don't turn up to lectures.
    2. If she doesn't provide webcasts of her lectures, students complain she's a bad lecturer.

    I know she's upset + it's directly impacting her medium-term happiness based on what she wrote on social media. However I have not talked to her about it. Should I? If so, what can I say? Both problems look generic enough that other lecturers must've dealt with them before. How?

    EDIT: Thanks for the advice. Since there's little I can do, I liked her post and left it at that.
