With COVID-19 sweeping the globe, and the pandemic raging full-speed ahead, many countries have esentially shut down so that people can stay at home. People are hoping to help flatten the curve, and some movie stars and influencers were asked to speak out to their followers about staying at home as well. Many stars are putting on shows from their front yard or inside their home.

However, some people have dumped hot water all over themselves, and are drowning in it. One such person is Vanessa Hudgens, of High School Musical. She expressed her opinion of COVID-19 during a live video when a fan asked her too, and... well.

They came for her.

Hudgens' comment was: “I’m sorry, but like, it’s a virus, I get it, like, I respect it, but at the same time I’m like, even if everybody gets it, like yeah, people are going to die, which is terrible but like, inevitable?”

It was extremely insensitive, especially to say in mid-March as the pandemic was picking up speed across the US and the world. She was doing a makeup tutorial and a fan asked her for her thoughts on the virus and on how people were quarantining themselves.

People began to fire back immediately. They slammed her for being insensitive, pointing out that health care workers and first responders are putting their lives in danger everyday, despite people who act like the virus is nothing to worry about.

Hudgens did apologize, saying that her comments were insensitive and that she was sorry. However, that damage was done, it's a black mark on her social media past, it'll never fade away.

Several celebs. brought their own opinion to the comments of Hudgens' Instagram, saying things like Olivia Wilde's insane comeback: “In a thousand years they’ll dig up our society and find this precious digital moment and be like ‘mmmm oh okay this is why they mysteriously disappeared from the EARTH.'” And she included an emoji of head shaking, with disappointment.

Other celebrities, such as Chrissy Teigan, wife of famed John Legend, felt sympathy for Hudgens and made a statement on her behalf. The statement was posted via Twitter: “Sometimes people, especially famous people, are gonna say really stupid s–t. & so are you. And they, and u, will learn from it & hopefully, their history says they’re good. It’s Ok. And at the same time, wow they really had a dumb f–kin moment. But u don’t have [to] ruin their lives.”

She did later clarify it was about Hudgens, and said: "We all have stupid moments."

Hopefully Hudgens has learned, and from the looks of her Instagram account, she has. The social media platform has been changed considerably since her comment was made:

Her Instagram "bio" reads: "STAY IN!!!! Don’t go out. Let’s get thru this together ❤️"

She has partnered with Bethenny and The Ellen Show, where she donates money to help purchase masks and other supplies for hospitals. She has even posted a cute little instagram infograph captioned: "Five simple ways to help #beatthevirus" and those ways are listed as: "STAY HOME, cover your coughs and sneezes, wash your hands often, If you're sick, call ahead before visiting your doctor, and practice social distancing, keeping 6 feet apart."

Her most recent Instagram post was of her with her dog, and it was captioned: "Day 15 of quarantine and woke up realizing we have another 30 days ahead of us. It can be very overwhelming but the thing I’ve learned is, to breathe and stay present. Waking up and not asking myself what I should do, instead asking myself what do I truly want do to in this moment. It’s lead me to leading with compassion and reaching out to those who truly matter to me. I hope this gives you some peace and allows you to be truly present. A thing I hope we take with us after this is all over with. Much love to you all and hope you step into this new week with a profound sense of self and compassion. ❤️❤️ stay home. Let’s get thru this together 💗 #nomakeup #quarantinevibes #gratefulformypup"

Her views have changed, which is great, she's doing a lot to help too.
