Vanessa Hudgens apologizes after netizens criticized her ‘insensitive’ remark about COVID-19 situation
Fil-Am actress Vanessa Hudgens apologizes for her “insensitive” remark about the current world situation concerning the COVID-19.
The actress/singer had this statement during her Instagram Live last Monday: “Um, yeah, ’til July sounds like a bunch of bull—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?”
With this, she received a bunch of criticisms on social media. Her name was even one of the top Twitter trends. In line with this, she said that her statement was taken out of the context, based on the article from Fox News.
“Hey guys, yesterday I did an Instagram Live and I realized today that some of my comments are being taken out of context,” the actress said on her IG Story.
“It’s a crazy time. It’s a crazy, crazy time, and I’m at home and in lockdown and that’s what I hope you guys are doing too. In full quarantine and staying safe and sane,” she added. She also said that she is not taking the situation lightly by any means.
Following this, Vanessa Hudgens apologizes through her Twitter post. Here’s her statement:
“Hey guys. I’m so sorry for the way I have offended anyone and everyone who has seen the clip from my Instagram Live yesterday. I realize my words are 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.”
