This works fine on local env , but not working on web deployment on streamlit
Code snippet:

col1, col2 = st.columns([1,1])

    with col1:
        # Count plot to show the distribution of comments between the various countries whose people tweeted
        with sns.axes_style("darkgrid"):
            fig = plt.figure(figsize = (10,8), facecolor = None)
            sns.countplot(data = df ,y = 'Countries',orient="v",color='#5975a4',palette = sns.color_palette("pastel") ,order = df['Countries'].value_counts().iloc[:20].index)    
            plt.title('Top Contributing Countries')
            plt.ylabel('Countries', fontsize=12)
            plt.xlabel('Frequency of Comments', fontsize=12)

If applicable, please provide the steps we should take to reproduce the error or specified behaviour.
