Celebrities are finding their actions under intense scrutiny in light of current events.
The Gal Godot-led cover of John Lennon's "Imagine" resulted in mostly backlash.
Now Madonna started another wave via her Instagram.
The video begins with Madonna sitting in a milky bathtub with rose petals.
Regarding the pandemic, she says:
"It doesn't care about how rich you are, how famous you are, how funny you are. How smart you are, where you live, how old you are, what amazing stories you can tell. It's the great equalizer and what's terrible about it is what's great about it."
Ironically, calling it the great equalizer while she sat in a very pretty bathroom in a well-shot bathtub did not go over well with fans.
The message feels tone deaf against the backdrop of the current situation.
Hospitals are close to exhausting supplies and equipment—including life-saving items such as ventilators. Beds are running short and folks are out of work and in danger of losing their homes.
Madonna is in a bathtub in her house under no danger of eviction or starvation saying "it's made us all equal."
Reportedly, the 61-year-old singer is self-isolating in London alongside her boyfriend Ahlamalik Williams and daughter Mercy James.
Time will tell whose gestures will be well received and who will draw public condemnation.
