Real Housewives of Orange County star Kelly Dodd sure has a lot to say about coronavirus these days. Yes, it’s a major topic of conversation right now, but Kelly has offended many people with her remarks. She claimed that coronavirus was “God’s way of thinning the herd.” She apologized, but soon after, Kelly remarked that “people are going to die anyway,” which was rather insensitive.
Kelly and her co-stars faced criticism when they posted selfies they took in the midst of the pandemic. After that, Kelly publicly apologized again after she posted a “joke” about coronavirus. Over the weekend, she claimed that “no one is dying from coronavirus in Orange County.” And in response, some viewers contacted the production company asking for Kelly to get fired.
Now, Kelly is addressing her most recent controversial remarks in a new Instagram video. She began, “I just want to clarify something to Page Six and Us Weekly. I was by no means minimizing deaths that have been caused by this virus. And I feel for their loved ones.”
She continued, “However, Orange County has 133 deaths out of 3 million people. Much lower than most.”
Kelly’s original video was about her meal at a restaurant, where she said, “No one is wearing masks here in Orange County. Yup, because no one is dying here of the virus. It’s not the government’s job to protect my health. It’s the government’s job to protect my RIGHTS. It’s my job to protect my health. When you trade liberty for safety you end up losing both.”
non-apology latest video, Kelly remarked, “I feel encouraged and excited that people were out and about and there was some semblance of normalcy. And, by the way, I was wearing a mask.”
Then, she pointed the camera to her mom and said, “This lady right here was not wearing the mask. And no patrons when we were eating were wearing the mask. The servers were, but you can’t eat with a mask on. So, get your facts straight.”
Oh, Kelly. Never a dull moment. Maybe she should just take a break from providing social media commentary on world issues.
