Chrissy Teigen defends Vanessa Hudgens over virus quote

World News

Chrissy Teigen has no hard feelings after Vanessa Hudgens’ remarks about coronavirus, and she doesn’t think her fans should either.

“Sometimes people, especially famous people, are gonna say really stupid s–t. & so are you,” Teigen, 34, tweeted late Tuesday.

“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.

“This isn’t about me this time,” she continued. “But it will be one day, or it’ll be you. But yeah today it’s Vanessa lol.”
During an Instagram Live, the “High School Musical” star sounded off on President Trump’s suggestion that the outbreak could last into the summer, which the actress said “sounds like a bunch of bulls–t,” according to Elle.

“I’m sorry,” she said. “It’s a virus, I get it. I respect it. But at the same time, like, even if everybody gets it — like, 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,” she said, wrapping up with a laugh.

In a follow-up, she took to her Instagram Story to say, “I realize today that some of my comments are being taken out of context. It’s a crazy time. It’s a crazy, crazy time and I am at home and in lockdown and that’s what I hope you guys are doing. In full quarantine. And staying safe and sane. Yeah, don’t take this situation lightly by any means. I am home. So stay inside y’all.”

Hudgens also took to Twitter for additional damage control.
“I’m so sorry for the way I have offended anyone and everyone who has seen the clip,” she wrote. “I realize my words were insensitive and not at all appropriate for the situation our county and the world are in right now. This has been a huge wake up call about the significance my words have, now more than ever.”
