For the life of me, I cannot figure out why celebrities feel like they are more important than they really are.
They believe that they're the ones that make the world turn and that they know best about everything.
If you get a small group of celebrities to speak out against something, they must be right and the government better listen to what they have to say.
But when there are tens of millions of Americans claiming that there is fraud in the election, or when we say that there are problems with the measures we're taking during the whole COVID crisis, we're demonized.
But anyway, a group of celebrities decided to join forces and compile an open letter to "World Leaders" to tell them how they should deal with the pandemic. This only makes sense right? since they're all so well-informed on viruses and health and everything else.
Some of the celebrities were Ciara, Richard Gere, Anne Hathaway, Eva Longoria, Alyssa Milano, Sarah Silverman, Peter Dinklage, Idina Menzel, Debra Messing, and still several more.
Here's what they had to say:
COVID-19 is now a manmade pandemic of apathy. Only 2% of people in low-income countries have received a single dose, leaving the world’s most vulnerable to face COVID with no protection. This situation also lets new variants, like Delta, emerge and ravage the lives of millions.
We are joining with CARE to call on global leaders to make 7 billion vaccine doses available before the end of 2021, and an additional 7 billion doses by mid-2022 to fully vaccinate 70% of the world by next summer.
To get this done the world community must also invest in last-mile delivery systems, public education, and frontline healthcare workers to get vaccines from tarmacs into arms. Millions of doses could go to waste because low-income countries don’t have the support they need to get vaccines to vulnerable people.
We can save millions of lives — and trillions in further economic damage — by meeting this moment with the resources and political will needed to end COVID-19 for everyone, everywhere. Because none of us are safe until all of us are safe.
All of this waste just to push a vaccine that is doing more harm than good. But what do you expect out of idiots?
