Beauty Youtuber Nikita Dragun is already known for creating a stir on social media. A trans-woman and CEO of the cosmetics collection Dragun Beauty, the influencer regularly posts dazzling videos and pictures flaunting sheer, sparkling outfits.

Dragun is no stranger to online bullying. She regularly comes under fire for copious amounts of plastic surgery, even though she has been vocal on how much the surgeries helped her mentally.

Now, she is beginning to receive backlash for a recent trip to Milan amidst panic over the coronavirus.

On Friday, Nikita Dragun posted a video on Instagram celebrating her recent trip to Italy for Milan Fashion Week. The Youtuber posed in the Piazza del Duomo on the steps of the cathedral and inside the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II, a major shopping mall. She even held city pigeons on her hands and arms outside the famous church.

While most commenters were worried that Dragun would pick up a disease from the “flying rats,” others criticized her for traipsing the streets of Milan without caring about the coronavirus.

The Coronavirus Has Been Spreading Quickly Through Northern Italy

As of Friday, the Italian Ministry of Health reported that cases of coronavirus spiked over 50 percent in 24 hours. Approximately 650 cases have been reported in the country, and 17 people have already died.

The virus hit Northern Italy the hardest, especially the Lombardy region. 11 towns have been locked down, leaving 50,000 people trapped. The New York Times reported that Milan, Italy's “liveliest city,” now “feels dead.”

Though Nikita Dragun’s Instagram video revealed a decent crowd in Milan's famous landmarks, the Times reported that these attractions are normally crammed with tourists.

On Friday, Hailey Bieber was photographed at JFK airport in New York City wearing a blue mask. The model and wife of Justin Bieber was returning from Paris, having traveled there for Fashion Week.

Bieber also posted about the trip on her Instagram, posing in an emerald green skirt suit with the caption “green in Pari 💚.”

Interestingly, there are no photographs of Bieber wearing a mask around Paris. 41 cases of the coronavirus have already been reported in France, and two people have died from the virus in Paris.

Gwyneth Paltrow and Bella Hadid have both been vocal about their coronavirus fears. On Wednesday, Paltrow posted a photo of herself wearing a worried expression and an expensive black face mask.

She wrote, “En route to Paris. Paranoid? Prudent? Panicked? Placid? Pandemic? Propaganda? … Stay safe. Don’t shake hands. Wash hands frequently.”

Kate Hudson also posted a photo on Wednesday of herself wearing a blue mask, writing “Travel. 2020. #😳.”

Bella Hadid then shared a caption-less photo of herself on a plane wearing a white mask. Needless to say, other stars are taking the coronavirus quite seriously.
