Vanderpump Rules’ Scheana ripped for living her ‘best life as if everything’s fine’ during coronavirus pandemic – The Sun

SCHEANA Shay has been slammed for claiming fans should ignore the coronavirus warnings.

The Vanderpump Rules star was branded "selfish" and "insensitive" when she said she won't be self-isolating and wanted to keep "living her best life".

Scheana tweeted on Saturday: “Any of my friends working from home this week should come join me for a Palm Springs quarantine!

“I will continue to live my life in Palm Springs or MDR w my friends and not live it in complete isolation or fear. "Simple as that. Call me ignorant but I’m not gonna stop living!”

The 34-year-old reality star then posted: "Yes, meaning I’m not going to isolate myself inside alone for weeks.

"I’m sorry. It’s not going to happen and anyone who follows me will see that."

She went on: "I pray this virus passes soon and we can all go back to living our best lives. On that note, goodbye for now twitter."

Scheana's followers were outraged at her posts, which they claimed made her look "heartless".
"Tragic and ignorant," one user raged. Another added: "Scheana, that is super selfish. We all need to do it to
protect the vulnerable among us. Please go read about it and learn more."

A third posted: "Your stubbornness is making you look heartless."

Amid the backlash, Scheana – who was previously ripped for her singing – fired back that she doubted her critics were self-isolating all month.

She raged: "I truly hope each and every one of you tweeting me that I’m stupid for having people at my house are all home alone and not making contact with any people for the rest of the month.

"Don’t be a hypocrite.”

The Bravo star – whose co-star Lala Kent recently said God wouldn't give her coronavirus before her wedding – added: "If I didn’t annoy people, I probably wouldn’t have a job.”

Scheana doubled down on her comments in her podcast on Tuesday.

While talking to her pal Diana Madison, the reality star said she doesn't care if she gets coronavirus because she's a "strong b****" who can "fight it off".

"It's affecting my social life so can you guys sort it out?" Scheana began.

She added: "I feel like I'm on house arrest. I'm just going about living my best life as if everything's alright.

"I'm like at the nail salon right before this."

Scheana then talked about the preventative measures people were advising to stave off the virus and said adamantly: "I'm not living my life like that.

"I'm going to fight it off because I'm a strong b****.

"It's like fever, runny nose. It's like… that's the flu."

She faced further backlash for the comments in her podcast, with one listener ranting on Reddit: "I was stunned at how absolutely flippant Scheana is about the seriousness of this virus."

The user went on: "I'm just so appalled at how ignorant she is about the FACTS and how careless she obviously is about spreading the virus to anyone who may NOT be able to fight it off.

"I'm shocked that she's using this platform to advertise just how little she knows about anything that's going on in the country and in the world right now and how little she cares for the health and safety of other human beings."

Scheana later apologised for her tweets, posting: "For those who expressed concern or viewed my remarks as insensitive, I had just returned from a work trip and wasn’t fully updated on the pandemic.

"I now understand the severity of our current predicament. Please stay safe, and wash your damn hands!"
