While the number of COVID-19 related deaths hit the 100 marks in the US and thousands of recorded deaths worldwide, some Hollywood stars were still evidently too far from reality. In fact, some failed to empathize and see the scale and magnitude that the virus had, not just in the country but across the world.

One such star is High School Musical alum, Vanessa Hudgens. Bored to death due to the state-mandated lockdown, Hudgens lamented that she does not care whether people would die from the virus. “But like, it’s a virus. I get it; I respect it.” She continued to say, “But at the same time, like, even if everyone gets it, like yeah, people are gonna die, which is terrible, but like, inevitable.” Then, the actress simply laughed it off before cheekily saying that “I don’t know, maybe I shouldn’t be doing this right now.”

While some were puzzled over Hudgens’s insensitive remarks, others claimed that the so-called Queen of Coachella was just disappointed for being unable to attend the music festival, which might just be the only time she remains relevant.

Social media pundits were not happy with the star’s statement.

Hudgens then offered a public apology, admitting that her statement was “insensitive” and tried to tone down her grievous statements by donating to coronavirus efforts. Even Chrissy Teigan, a vocal anti-trump supporter, came in to defend Hudgens stating dismissively that sometimes public figures just do something stupid.

On the other hand, famous rapper Cardi B proclaimed that the situation is becoming “scary” adding that “Coronavirus that s**t is getting real.” However, someone had remixed Cardi’s statement over the growing concern on the coronavirus pandemic into full-blown music and had it played on clubs in Rio. In fact, the user said that he was rather happy that people are smiling and laughing over the coronavirus scare.

On Monday, President Donald Trump had advised people to stay in their homes and avoid gathering of more than ten people. While there is still no announcement over a national shutdown, the president said that is considering a lockdown on coronavirus “hotspots.”
