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.
In a new report from Variety, Hollywood’s rich and famous are apparently doing whatever they can to get their hands on the COVID-19 vaccine, with some offering bribes of as much as US$10,000, and others even transiently entering healthcare professions to jump the line! Dr. Robert Huizenga told the magazine that notable members of the entertainment industry are treating the scramble for the vaccine as a “fight for their lives,” particularly amid the nation's slow rollout. Still, you'd think with all that time and money they could comfortably afford to stay out of harm's way until it's their turn, right?
And that's just the tip of the iceberg. From trying to share "relatable" quarantine content from the comfort of their mansions, to making ridiculous claims about the virus, click through to see the most widely slammed things celebrities have said or done regarding this pandemic.
