Vanessa Hudgens fluffs her apology: ‘I was taken out of context’ [video]
Vanessa Hudgens has offered a response to the backlash she received over her recent coronavirus comments.
Vanessa Hudgens says she was misunderstood
Barely showing concern for the way she may have used her celebrity to negatively influence social discourse around coronavirus, Vanessa Hudgens offered a flatulent apology for “being taken out of context”.
On Tuesday evening, social media erupted in chaos when clips of Vanessa Hudgens speaking insensitively about coronavirus.
“Umm, yeah, ’til July sounds like a bunch of bulls**t. I’m sorry, but like, it’s a virus, I get it, like, I respect it, but at the same time, I’m like, even if everybody gets it, like yeah, people are going to die, which is terrible but like, inevitable?” she said on Instagram (IG) Live
Watch: Hudgens’ cringe apology for coronavirus comments
In fact, this was nowhere near an apology. The High School Musical star placed no effort in masking her indifference to the global pandemic with empathy.
This was a PR mess she was talked into cleaning up and Hudgens, as arrogant as ever, posted this on IG Live.
After blaming the public for misunderstanding her ignorant and misguided comments on coronavirus, Hudgens encouraged people to ‘stay inside’ and ‘quarantine’.
“I don’t take this situation lightly by any means. So stay inside y’all,” she said.
Celebrities infected with coronavirus
The world is still struggling to contain the spread of coronavirus, three months after it broke out in Wuhan, China.
In the United States (US), 100 people have been killed by coronavirus and thousands more have tested positive. NBA star Kevin Durant is the latest celebrity to reveal that they were infected.
The Brooklyn Nets star is one of four players who tested positive after the team was screened. Other public figures who’ve come forward include Hollywood stars Idris Elba, Tom Hanks and his wife Rita Wilson.
