Many celebrities have been trying to help fans cope with the coronavirus epidemic, meanwhile, Vanessa Hudgens has some explaining to do about her insensitive comments.
Vanessa Hudgens, who is mainly famous for a starring role in High School Musical, decided to take to Instagram Live to discuss all the social distancing and shutdowns due to coronavirus. Unlike Taylor Swift and Ariana Grande , the actress downplayed everything going on.
“Um, yeah, till July sounds like a bunch of bullsh*t, I’m sorry,” the actress said in her ramble. “It’s a virus, I get it, I respect it, but at the same time, even if everybody gets it, like, yeah, people are going to die, which is terrible, but like…inevitable? I dunno, maybe I shouldn’t be doing this right now.”
She finished off her comments with a laugh, maybe already realizing the stir she was about to cause. Of course many were offended by her insensitive comments during this troubling time.
The following day the actress went back on Instagram to address the issue saying that “Some of my comments are being taken out of context.”
Hudgens added that, “It’s a crazy time. I’m at home in lockdown, and that’s what I hope you guys are doing too. In full quarantine. And staying safe and sane. I don’t take this situation lightly by any means. I am home. So stay inside, y’all.”

It wasn’t exactly the apology that people were looking for and the actress finally posted something much more appropriate to her Twitter account later.
Hudgens posted, “Hey guys. I’m so sorry for the way I have offended anyone and everyone…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.”

Meanwhile, Ashley Tisdale posted this wholesome video of her dancing to “We’re All In This Together,” on Tik Tok.
