As celebrities around the world flock to social media to remind us how much they care about the coronavirus pandemic, one star sees right through the Hollywood narcissism and blatant self promotion.

Ryan Reynolds posted his own coronavirus video to Twitter this week, acknowledging the inherent silliness of celebrities who are latching on to the worldwide crisis.

“I think in times of crisis, I think we all know that it’s the celebrities we count on most. They’re the ones that are going to get us through this,” the Deadpool actor joked.

He added: “Right after healthcare workers, of course. First responders. People who work in essential services. Ping-pong players. Mannequins — they’re great. Childhood imaginary friends, sure. Like 400 other types of people.”


Ryan Reynolds, who is from Canada, concluded with a serious message to his fans.

“Look, stay at home. Practice social distancing. Wash your hands. We are going to get through this thing. We are going to get through this thing together,” he said.
