Vanessa Hudgens is getting dragged for her messed up comments on COVID-19
‘Like yeah people are gonna die’
Vanessa Hudgens is facing a huge amount of hate after she posted an extremely insensitive video about coronavirus, in which she casually said people are going to die and that’s just inevitable.
On an Instagram live video Vanessa said the idea of the virus lasting until July was bullshit and people are going to die but that’s just inevitable.
She said: “Yeah, ‘til July sounds like a bunch of bullshit, 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?”

So sorry this coronavirus cuts in to your Coachella time Vanessa, must be tough.
Naturally everyone on Twitter was incredibly pissed off with Vanessa’s tone deaf statement on coronavirus.
Vanessa Hudgens has since apologised for her insensitive comments about coronavirus. She posted a statement on Twitter saying she was sorry for offending anyone and she has realised her words were not appropriate for the current climate.
She said: “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 realise 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.”
On her Instagram story last night Vanessa also said her words had been taken out of context and that it’s a crazy time for everyone. She signed off with a peace sign and told everyone to “stay inside y’all”.
