Idris Elba Tests Positive-Coronavirus Impacting Celebs




by G. Brown

It hasn’t even been one full week since the World Health Organization (WHO) deemed the CoVid19 a pandemic and the panic has already set in.

Stampedes on grocery stores leave shelves bare as people hoard everything from food to water to toilet paper.  One man looking to gouge hand sanitizer demands reportedly drove around his Kentucky area buying up $18,000 worth of the product.  Another story told of an elderly couple that sat in their car for hours afraid to go inside because of all the people and fearing their age made them vulnerable to exposure.

On Monday afternoon, actor Idris Elba shared with fans that he has tested positive for coronavirus.

The star says he discovered he was around someone who tested positive.  The “Thor” actor says he immediately quarantined himself and got tested.  So far, Elba says he feels fine and is not showing any symptoms, but cautions fans to take this virus seriously.

While celebs like Elba are living with the reality of illness, some celebs are questioning if the threat is real or some cooked up conspiracy.

Singer Keri Hilson may take the award for one of the craziest conspiracy theories so far about coronavirus. “Hilson is blaming the outbreak on 5G technology? “The Tide is High” singer tweeted,

It looks like more than the ‘tide’ is high Keri.

And even when celebs are trying to share useful comments and information, it’s not always ending well.  Take comedian/actor/radio show host DL Hughley got into a social media scrap when NBC referred to him as sharing “disinformation” with his Black fans and followers. DL had quite the response…

Social media isn’t exactly the place where cooler heads prevail, and during this pandemic, emotions are definitely on overload.  Too bad that social distancing doesn’t mean keeping your distance from social media to an extent.

Social media can still be a source of information, but also beware it’s a hotbed of crazy, lies and just plain old stupidity sometimes.

If you want information, go to legit sites you trust like the CDC and WHO, news or blog outlets you know or local government websites for your city and state.

A pandemic doesn’t come without a lot of fear and panic. Keep your head, follow what the experts are telling you. Stay sane. Stay Informed.  But more importantly,  Stay safe everyone.

    I’m a conspiracy theorist. I wouldn’t be surprised if President #45 and the rest of the politicians said that the only cure for the coronavirus is to get injected with the rfid microchip. The rfid microchip is the “mark of the beast” aka getting the devil injected in you. This would eliminate cash money and what little freedoms and rights we have left. So angry that this devilish government just put most of the country on house arrest. The devils are at work and they’re scaring us into a new age slavery; all of us!

    I’m a black man in America. I’m scared of the police. I’m not scared of the Coronavirus.

    Many Chinese people eat bats. That is disgusting. Many of us eat pigs. That is just as disgusting as eating bats. Protect yourself from catching the Coronavirus by changing your diet. Stop eating pigs. Stop eating junk food. Strengthen your immune system by eating organic fruits and vegetables. Drink lots of water and wash your hands several times a day.

    Bird Flu, S.A.R.S. and CoronaVirus came from China. America continues to do business with China. The white devils who run America will poison and kill their own people in exchange for making more money.

    Remember when the self hating idiot Issa Rae recommended black women date Chinese men? My beautiful sistas I recommend you stay away from all Chinese men. Brothers you should think twice before dating or marrying Chinese women. Many of those people eat bats. I’m not making this up, the pictures are on the internet. If this is how the Corona Virus started, then the Chinese people are to blame and all of us should think twice before dating or marrying Chinese people.

    I heard the Corona Virus came from the Wuhan Province in China. If the American government is truly concerned about our health and safety, they should stop accepting imports, goods and services from that communist country. America should completely cut off all business deals with China and suspend all flights to and from China. Dare I say it, all Chinese people should be forced into concentration camps like they did the Japanese during World War Two. The American Government will not do this because this country places profits and money over the health and safety of Americans.

    Off topic: Andrew Gillum is a gay boule crystal meth head.

    On topic: American Government claims to be concerned about the Corona virus, but America continues to accept imports and products from China. In reality, America cares more about making money than the health and safety of Americans.
