While the world is being affected by the novel coronavirus, left, right and centre, there erupted a theory by Cardi B. that all celebrities who claimed to have contracted the virus were actually being paid to say so.
However, recently, actor Idris Elba, who announced that he too had had the coronavirus, claimed it was all bullshit and nothing else.
The 47-year-old actor, took to Instagram Live to put down all rumors and conspiracy theories that claimed all celebrities had been paid to say that they have been infected by the virus.
“I think the debate about rich and poor and who’s getting it and who’s not, I think, is not a healthy debate. It’s like, I got a test but I also got COVID. Does that make me preferential? I don’t understand that,” Elba told his followers.
“It shouldn’t be about whether rich or poor gets it. I think that the negativity around test-shaming is counterproductive. I don’t see what people get out of that. And also this idea that someone like myself is gonna be paid to say I’ve got coronavirus, that’s absolute bullsh*t. Such stupidness,” he further added.
Claiming it was utterly stupid to spread such a new, Elba stated, “People wanna spread that as if it’s news. That’s stupid. It’s the quickest way to get people sick because there’s no benefit to me and Sabrina sitting here saying we’ve got it or we ain’t got it. I don’t even understand the logic of that.”
Idris Elba, Sabrina Dhowre, also tested positive for the novel coronavirus as she refused to leave his side.
