Celebrities Calling World Leaders to End the Pandemic “NOW” Gets Reactions From Netizens

The coronavirus pandemic has been around for more than a year now, and news about how the government is dealing with it has been circulating since the very moment it started. However, several dozens of celebrities have had enough and have decided to finally say their piece.

Tuesday morning, just when US President Joe Biden was about to address the United Nations for the first time, over 80 celebrities published an open letter to the world leaders wanting them to end “the COVID-19 pandemic now.”

The letter, which addressed the United Nations General Assembly Session, was posted on the CARE website and was signed by dozens of famous folk including Eva Longoria, Debra Messing, Alyssa Milano, Anne Hathaway, Morena Baccarin, Troian Bellisario, Jordana Brewster, Connie Britton, Ciara, Alexandra Daddario, Peter Dinklage, Richard Gere, Joel McHale, Iman, Iskra Lawrence, Annie Lennox, Edward James Olmos, Laura Linney, Julianna Margulies, Idina Menzel, Leven Rambin, Holland Roden, Adam Shulman, Sarah Silverman, Laura Vandervoort, Michelle Williams, and Russell Wilson.

It reads:

“An open letter to world leaders on ending the COVID-19 pandemic now.

None of us are safe until all of us are safe.

We call on leaders gathering at the United Nations General Assembly Session to boldly act together to end COVID-19 everywhere.

COVID-19 is now a manmade pandemic of apathy. Only 2% of people in low-income countries have received a single dose, leaving the world’s most vulnerable to face COVID with no protection. This situation also lets new variants, like Delta, emerge and ravage the lives of millions.

We are joining with CARE to call on global leaders to make 7 billion vaccine doses available before the end of 2021, and an additional 7 billion doses by mid-2022 to fully vaccinate 70% of the world by next summer.

To get this done the world community must also invest in last-mile delivery systems, public education, and frontline healthcare workers to get vaccines from tarmacs into arms. Millions of doses could go to waste because low-income countries don’t have the support they need to get vaccines to vulnerable people.

We can save millions of lives — and trillions in further economic damage — by meeting this moment with the resources and political will needed to end COVID-19 for everyone, everywhere. Because none of us are safe until all of us are safe.”

However, while these celebrities mean well, some of the regular folk on the Internet could not help but laugh at their attempt for social significance. Reactions from Twitter can be read:
