Kelly Dodd has found herself in hot water for her comments about the coronavirus pandemic.
After the “Real Housewives Of Orange County” star, 44, shared videos of herself flying between New York City and Los Angeles amid the outbreak, Dodd was slammed on Twitter for her actions.
But while replying to her critics, Dodd wrote, “If it’s dangerous why are the airlines still flying? You think I want to fly? I had to get back, how is that elitist? People are so judgemental it’s sick!”
She later added, “Do you know how many people died from the H1N1, the swine flu or SARS? It’s 25 per cent get your facts straight you only hearing numbers not the reality! It’s God’s way of thinning the herd!”
After taking the videos down, Dodd apologized.
“I want to give a public apology,” she said in an Instagram story. “When I wrote that it’s God’s way of thinning the herd that’s not what I meant. What I meant was, do these pandemics happen because it’s God’s way? I’m not God, I’m not insensitive, I feel bad for all the families that lost loved ones and I do think we should all stay home and protect everybody.”
The reality star added, “That’s not what I meant and I want to apologize to anyone that got offended, OK? I’m sorry.”
Despite the apology, Twitter still lashed out at Dodd.
