Ariana Grande took it to Instagram and Twitter to call out people who are putting others in danger by not taking Coronavirus seriously and not going into quarantine and/or self-isolating.
“It is incredibly dangerous and selfish to take this situation lightly.” the singer wrote.
She posted an Instagram story writing: “I keep hearing from a surprising amount of people statements like “this isn’t a big deal” / “we’ll be fine”… “we still have to go about our lives” and it’s really blowing my mind. i understand if that’s how u felt weeks ago. but please read about what’s going on. please don’t turn a blind eye.”
She continued to write: “It’s incredibly dangerous and selfish to take this situation lightly. the “we will be fine because we’re young” mindset is putting people who aren’t young and / or healthy in a lot of danger. you sound stupid and privileged and you need to care more about others now.”
She also wrote a statement on her Twitter account: ““well some of us have to work!” i understand and entirely support your frustration. i do not mean to disrespect anyone who doesn’t have the privilege of cancelled work or being able to call out of their work. but, this is a national emergency and a pandemic of global proportion.”
She added: “i am agreeing w yall. these are the times when the world should rely on their governments to support the plan for all citizens to stay at home and lessen the threat of infection and the spread of the virus.”
