British comedian Ricky Gervais slammed the clueless celebrities who have attempted to lecture normal Americans about the Coronavirus. As The New York Post reports:
The 58-year-old targeted “Wonder Woman” actress Gal Gadot and a crew of other A-listers, such as Will Ferrell and Mark Ruffalo, for their viral cover of John Lennon’s “Imagine” released last month in response to the crisis.
“That Imagine video, it’s not that bad, they’re probably very nice people,” Gervais said on BBC Radio 5, according to The Sun. “It was an awful rendition, but they might have been doing it for good reasons, to help these normal nobodies.”
“But they’re going, ‘My film’s coming up and I’m not on telly — I need to be in the public eye,’ not all of them but some of them,” he added. “You can see in their eye — ‘I could cry at the beauty of my personality, I’m just so beautiful for doing this’ and everyone sees that — we get it.”
Gervais also went after rich celebrities who had complained about being confined to their mansions during the Coronavirus lockdown:
“People are sick of being lectured, multi-millionaires telling them to clean out their coffee jar and put it in the right bin — they know those celebs are taking private jets to their private islands,” he added. “They are sick of it.”
