Hollywood stars are coming out of self-isolation to criticize U.S. President Donald Trump for his recent coronavirus remarks.
Trump recently referred to COVID-19 as the “Chinese Virus” while addressing the pandemic on social media. The U.S. president was immediately met with backlash for the racist remark.
“The United States will be powerfully supporting those industries, like airlines and others, that are particularly affected by the Chinese virus,” Trump tweeted on Monday. “We will be stronger than ever before!”
Debra Messing had harsh words for Trump’s response to the crisis, saying that because of his “lies and inaction” many MAGA supporters “will die” from the virus.
Verified social media users, including Chloe Bennet and “Avengers: Endgame” star Don Cheadle, were also among those speaking out against Trump.
