It seems like every other bit of news these days is about the dreadful coronavirus outbreak. For the vast majority of Eart’s citizens, this is a dire time when regular people are losing jobs, the economy is slowly crumbling, and of course, there’s the virus itself. And in the other camp, we have the elite – the 1%. We’ve already seen many celebs coming up with donations, some do PSAa asking everyone to stay at home, but then there are also these individuals belching out nonsense on their social media.
Let’s see what some celebs had to say about this pandemic!
1. LaLa Kent
Admittedly, now is the worst time to play a wedding. Especially if you had everything planned out months ago, like Lala Kent. In her Insta post, she said that there’s no way God would give her COVID-19 before she gets married. And even if he did, that would be some free publicity. I guess she did get that publicity anyway, huh?
2. Michelle Collins
Michelle Collins tweeted some really stupid stuff. Like, what kind of person takes bets on which celebrity will get Corona first? In case you were wondering, it was Tom Hanks. But for some reason, Michelle specifically said: “Jameela doesn’t count.” Jameela Jamil suffers from Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome and fights on weekends cancer. It was a real low blow, and the actress did not like that tone, snapping back at Michelle with some strongly-worded tweets.
3. Vanessa Hudgens
During one of her live vids on TikTok, Vanessa Hudgens said something quite controversial regarding the COVID-19 pandemic. She was bummed about not being able to go out on St. Paddy’s Day, so after a few glasses of wine, she started talking nonsense. Her rant went something like this: “Sounds like a bunch of BS. Even if everybody gets it […] people are gonna die, which is terrible, but, like, inevitable?” You can imagine the backlash she got after this.
4. Scheana Shay
Beautiful cosplayer Scheana Shay did a not-so-wonderful job at self-quarantining by throwing a party for her friends. She said that she was not afraid of the virus and won’t give in to the peer pressure. “Call me ‘ignorant’ but I’m not gonna stop living!” – is what she tweeted after being called out. Well, I hate to say it, but that’s exactly what you could end up doing, girl, not to mention putting others in possible danger.
5. Lewis Capaldi
Lewis Capaldi, known for his Tinder shenanigans, somehow couldn’t cancel his band’s concert in Scotland after COVID-19 went viral. This left a bitter aftertaste, especially among his fans. It’s like greed was more important than the global outbreak of a deadly virus. Lewis tried to defend himself by saying that at the moment, the rules only applied to gatherings of 500+ people, but he should have known better.
6. Rudy Gobert
He’s the nasty NBA player who decided to ignore the basic rule of “don’t touch stuff” and rubbed his palms all over mics as he was leaving the press conference. He though COVID-19 was not a big deal, and that we’re all a bunch of babies. But the funny thing is, shortly after the incident, he tested positive for corona. But at least he then donated half a million to fight the plague.
A California based influencer and TikTok pranker named Larz who has thousands of followers on his social media accounts decided to lick a toilet seat for so-called “coronavirus challenge”. Well, he probably thought it’s gonna be fun. And guess what? A few days later he was tested positive for COVID-19.
