Many celebrities are sharing their views on the Coronavirus pandemic on their social media pages. However, Vanessa Hudgens, who is popularly known for her role in the film High School Musical had quite a different take, which didn’t go down well with the audiences. Due to her ‘insensitive’ take, people bashed her and now the actress has apologised for the same.
Recently, Vanessa conducted an Instagram live session in which she talked about the ongoing pandemic. The Spring Breakers actress said in the video, “Yeah, ‘til July sounds like a bunch of bulls***, I’m sorry. But like, it’s a virus, I get it, I respect it, but at the same time, like – even if everybody gets it… Like, yeah, people are gonna die. Which is terrible, but like – inevitable?”
People slammed the actress on social media for her take post which, Hudgens apologised. One of the Twitter users wrote, “#Vanessahudgens – People are losing their jobs. They are dying. They are sick. They have no money. No groceries. No contact with loved ones. And you’re moaning about coachella being postponed til July. If I were in charge of coachella I’d ban you out of spite.”
Another person tweeted, “When you tweet a video and end it with “maybe I shouldn’t be saying this” that’s normally a sign that you shouldn’t #VanessaHudgens #COVID19”.
