Joe Giudice is backtracking after catching heat for calling the Coronavirus "stupid." The "Real Housewives of Orange County" star took to Instagram and caused a stir after he vented his feelings about the month-long country-wide lockdown in Italy on Monday. Joe Giudice has been in his home country for several months after leaving ICE custody. Amid the outbreak, Teresa Giudice's estranged husband addressed his frustrations over the mandatory lockdown, which he appeared not to take seriously as he strolled through the empty city streets. After experiencing backlash on Tuesday, the Bravo star is now responding to angry fans and seems to have changed his tune.
