As the world weathers this crisis together and people are reaching out to comfort, inform, and support each other, many celebrities are failing to strike an empathic chord with their followers. Plenty of publications are even claiming that their responses to coronavirus will be the demise of celebrity culture, as many of the rich and famous are making it difficult to idolize them.
On May 23, Alyssa Milano posted a photo of her family wearing masks with the caption, "Masks keep people safe and healthy. Show me yours! Ready? Go! #WearAMask," which would have been fine if her mask didn't seem to be crocheted and sporting many, many holes. Naturally, Twitter had a lot of fun criticizing her, but the actress eventually wrote back, “A–holes, mask has a carbon filter in it. So, yes, it might be crochet but totally safe." Touché!
