Chrissy Teigen defends Vanessa Hudgens amid coronavirus video backlash, In response to the outcry, Vanessa Hudgens quickly apologized. According to Entertainment Tonight, Hudgens hopped on her Instagram Story on March 17, 2020, to respond to the backlash.”Hey, guys, so yesterday I did an Instagram Live, and I realize today some of my comments are being taken out of context. It’s a crazy time… and I am at home and in lockdown, and that’s what I hope you guys are doing too, in full quarantine, and staying safe and sane. Don’t take this situation lightly, by any means. I am home. So stay inside, y’all.”
And she didn’t stop there. Hudgens also jumped on Twitter to express her regret: “Hey guys. I’m so sorry for the way i have offended anyone and everyone who has seen the clip from my Instagram live yesterday, she wrote. “I realize my words were insensitive and not at all appropriate for the situation our country 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. I’m sending safe wishes to everyone to stay safe and healthy during this crazy time.
Despite the apology, Twitter’s wrath continued. Actress Mindy Robinson commented on Hudgens’ apology, writing, “I’m sure your management forced you to apologize. You are everything wrong with Hollywood….spoiled, selfish, out of touch, and undeserving of your own fame and success.” Ouch! With these kinds of comments, it’s no wonder Chrissy Teigen — who is no stranger to hateful trolls — decided to speak up against this vitriol.
