Vanessa Hudgens apologizes to her fans after blasted for insensitive comments about the coronavirus pandemic.
In an Instagram live stream on Monday, the actress called the quarantine due to the current outbreak “bulls**t”. She said, “Um, 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?”
The High School Music star faced a lot of backlash for her comments. Many people called her insensitive. On Tuesday, Hudgens posted an apology note on Twitter, writing, “Hey guys. I’mso sorry for the way i have offended anyone and everyone who has seen the clip from my Instagram live yesterday.”
She also added, “I realize my words were insensitive and not at all appropriate for the situation our country and the world are in right now. This has been a huge wake up call about the significance my words have, now more than ever. I’m sending safe wishes to everyone to stay safe and healthy during this crazy time.”
Furthermore, the 31-year-old also posted a story on Instagram, in order to clarify her earlier comments. “Hey guys, so yesterday I did an Instagram Live and I realize today that some of my comments are being taken out of context,” Vanessa Hudgens began.
“It’s a crazy time. It’s a crazy, crazy, time, and I am at home and in lockdown and that’s what I hope that’s what you guys are doing, too, in full quarantine and staying safe and sane. Um, yeah I don’t take this situation lightly by any means. I am home. So stay inside y’all,” she concludes.
Many celebrities defended Hudgens over comments, including Chrissy Teigen.
