Actor Ryan Reynolds took to Twitter to slam the self-absorbed celebrities in Hollywood, like the group who performed John Lennon’s “Imagine.” Madonna and her crazy videos come to mind. It’s not about the celebrities and their grandstanding but about the people behind the scenes working 24/7 to keep everything running and to keep everyone well.
Reynolds and his wife Blake Lively donated $1 million to the North American food bank last week during the coronavirus crisis.
Reynolds acknowledged that celebrities like himself are not nearly as important as healthcare workers and other key people:
“They’re the ones that are going to get us through this.”
Another important message from an important celebrity. Let’s spread the word not the virus. I happily nominate, @stevenpage @Sethrogen and @TerryR49776917 #PlankTheCurve #StayAtHomeSaveLives pic.twitter.com/IRJNI9Y6G9
