Vanessa Hudgens has been accused of making heartless, insensitive and selfish remarks about coronavirus gripping the world. The High School Musical actress took to Instagram Live on Monday to share her views on the spiraling pandemic. A clip from the livestream quickly went viral on Twitter as fans called her out over her cavalier comments. “I’m sorry – but like, it’s a virus, I get it, I respect it. But at the same time – even if everybody gets it… yeah, people are going to die, which is terrible, but like….inevitable?” “I don’t know, maybe I shouldn’t be doing this right now.”
