It seems pretty clear that, as usual, the treatment people are getting when they have a ‘celebrity’ label plastered on them differently. This has been getting on people’s nerves, especially those who find out their loved ones have been refused for a test despite showing symptoms.
But these celebrities also played a part in giving back to the community. A number of famous A-liners have donated hundreds of thousands to millions of dollars to Food Banks or local organizations or companies that have been stranded due to deactivity.
The faces of celebrities who appear upbeat, calm and recovering are also necessary to ensure that the public does not panic. As much as we hate it, these are also the people who could most probably convince millions of stubborn individuals to wash hands and be encouraged to do social distancing.
