Ariana Grande asks fans to take coronavirus pandemic more seriously
The _7 Rings_ hitmaker took to social media on Sunday to voice her frustration and fumed that some people need to be more considerate and caring of other people.
LONDON - Ariana Grande wants her fans to take the coronavirus pandemic more seriously and help pass a bill to give people financial support.
The 7 Rings hitmaker - whose fanbase is mostly made up of the younger generation - took to social media on Sunday to voice her frustration at those who have the mindset of "we will be fine, because we're young" and fumed that some people need to be more considerate and caring of other people.
Grande began her series of Twitter posts: "I understand that is how u felt weeks ago, but please read about what's going on. Don't turn a blind eye.
"The 'we will be fine because we're young' mindset is putting people who aren't young and/or healthy in a lot of danger. you sound stupid and privileged and you need to care more about others. like now. (sic)"
The singer added: "like your hip hop yoga class can f***ing wait I promise (sic)"
The 26-year-old pop star went on to apologise to anyone she may have disrespected who still has to work, despite US President Donald Trump declaring a national state of emergency in response to the outbreak, and insisted she "entirely supports their frustration".
She continued: "well some of us have to work! I understand and entirely support your frustration. I do not mean to disrespect anyone who doesn't have the privilege of cancelled work or being able to call out of their work. but, this is a national emergency and a pandemic of global proportion. (sic)"
The God is a Woman singer then called on her followers to help pass a bill to give financial support and much more amid the health crisis, by calling their senators instead of replying to her with their "frustration".
