After Idris Elba tested positive for Corona Virus, and later his wife, you wouldn’t have suspected too much insesnsitivity. The virus is spreading across the world, so there is no reason why it wouldn’t hit a few well-known people!
BUT, theories such as one pushed by the likes of Cardi B are saying that these celebs, including Elba, are being paid to say they have it!
Idris jumped to Ig Live and a few choice words to say
“this idea that someone like myself is gonna be paid to say ‘I’ve got coronavirus,’ that’s, like, absolute bulls***,” Elba declared. “Such stupidness and people wanna spread that as if it’s news. That’s stupid. That’s the quickest way to get people sick. There’s no benefit to me and Sabrina sitting here saying we’ve got it when we ain’t got it. I don’t even understand the logic of that.”
