PIERS MORGAN: The coronavirus has made heroes out of many but brought out the selfish worst in others - here are my 20 top Cov-idiots so far (and isn't it funny how many are rich and famous?)

PIERS MORGAN: The coronavirus has made heroes out of many but brought out the selfish worst in others - here are my 20 top Cov-idiots so far (and isn't it funny how many are rich and famous?)
They say a crisis brings out the best and worst in people, and never has that been pertinent than during this coronavirus pandemic.
I’ve been so moved by the wonderfully selfless work being done by so many to help others get through this unprecedented situation – especially the world’s health workers risking their own lives to save ours.
And it’s been great to see people in other industries like entertainment being creative and thoughtful in trying to rally people’s spirits as millions of people sit at home worrying.
But sadly, I’ve also been repulsed by some of the outrageous, offensive and occasionally downright obscene conduct of a minority of people who have tried to exploit the crisis for personal gain, arrogantly ignored warnings to save lives, or brought a whole new meaning to tone-deafness.
Here are my 20 villains - so far!- of the coronavirus crisis who all need to take a long hard look in the mirror and ask themselves why they did what they did.
1) Wonder woman star Gal Gadot and her toe-curling celebrity accomplices on that diabolical Imagine video. It was supposed to be the self-isolating version of We Are The World but rapidly became a We Are Being Mocked By The World abomination. 
Aside from the horrible singing, and unctuous self-promoting style of delivery, the message of John Lennon’s original classic is imagining a world without borders, possessions. 
So, to see a bunch of multi-millionaire stars singing from within their heavily guarded mansions was particularly hypocritical.

2) Madonna, who decided her great contribution to the fight against coronavirus should be a video of herself at her lavish $20 million home, naked in a candle-surrounded bath full of rose petals, prattling on about the virus being the ‘great equaliser’.

Yeah, right. I would imagine those candles alone could feed a health worker for six months. 
As for the rose petals, we can only hope and pray they don’t clog up her pipes and require a plumber to break off from vital emergency virus-related work to fix it.
3Those douchebag Colvin brothers in Tennessee who drove around the state stockpiling 17,000 bottles of hand-sanitiser, then were banned from selling them online. 
The selfish, greedy berks need their brains sanitising, if it can be established that they have any.

4) President Trump, who decided yesterday was a good day to boast about his Bachelor-finale-level TV ratings, and then hand out pens to his top aides as they stood two inches from each other in the Oval Office. 
Trump needs to socially distance himself from such diabolically delusional and dangerous behaviour – fast.
 
5) British Prime Minister Boris Johnson, who boasted just three weeks ago that he had visited a hospital full of coronavirus patients and shaken as many people’s hands as possible. 
‘I shook hands with everybody!’ he exclaimed delightedly at his daily Government presser. 
Johnson now has the virus, along with Britain’s Health Secretary and Chief Medical Officer, and is being forced to run the country from self-isolation in his flat at No10 Downing Street.

Now he has tested positive
6) Spring-Breakers who flocked to the beaches in Florida, ignoring all advice not to, infecting each other and then returning home to infect and possibly kill their elderly relatives. 
I don’t know what the collective word is for a very large group of selfish, reckless morons, but shall we go with Covidiots?

7) Idris Elba, who thought he was doing the right thing when he released a video revealing he had tested positive for the virus - and urged others to stay safe. 
The problem was that in doing so, he exposed how wrong it is that celebrities like him are getting expensive private tests when most health care workers can’t. 
The furore this sparked was exacerbated when his wife Sabrina posted about having her own test several days later.
 
8) Cardi B. It’s not entirely surprising that someone who was a very high-profile dimwit before the pandemic should continue to be one now. 
But even by her standards, shrieking on social media that she was ‘losing my f*cking mind’ because ‘I want to put on my f*cking expensive outfits and go out’ was particularly gruesome.
 
9) Sam Smith took time out from his constant gender status updates to post a video of ‘themselves’ inside ‘their’ luxury home complaining that ‘they’ had ‘a bit of a headache’, saying how ‘challenging’ the crisis would be for people like ‘them’, and crying about the horrors of ‘their’ quarantine meltdown’. 
I’d like ‘them’ to pipe down. Immediately.

10) High School Musical buffoon Vanessa Hudgens, who dismissed concerns over the virus as ‘a bunch of bullsh*t’ and scoffed: ‘I’m sorry, but like, it’s a virus? I get it, I respect it, but at the same time I’m like, even if everybody gets it, like yeah, people are going to die, which is terrible but like, inevitable?’ Ms Hudgens is like, in urgent need of shutting the f*ck up.
 
11) Bono always means well, but he came out of the traps with what many saw as indecent speed to release a ballad for the people of Italy entitled ‘Let Your Love Be Known’ and urged Italians to ‘sing it from the rooftops.’ As one critic responded acidly: ‘Haven’t they suffered enough?

12) Jared Leto appeared from a 12-day meditation desert retreat and hit Instagram to exclaim: ‘Wow, we were totally isolated, we had no idea what was happening outside.  Mind-blowing.’ 
Leto posted this on March 17, meaning he entered the retreat on March 5, by which time numerous US states had declared public health emergencies, the Government had issued its highest ‘do not travel’ warning, and countries like China and Italy were in lockdown. 
His ignorance of any of his was…mind-blowing.

13) Billionaire David Geffen wanted the world to know of his own coronavirus struggle, posting a photo of his gigantic gin palace yacht with the caption: ‘Sunset last night… Isolated in the Grenadines avoiding the virus. I hope everybody is staying safe.’ 
Well we’re trying Dave, but unfortunately most people don’t have a $590 million bloody yacht to hide on. If you really want us to ‘stay safe’, maybe sell your yacht and give the proceeds to those who can’t afford to protect or feed themselves?

14) Drake was keen to show us the harsh limitations of his own self-isolation, posting a video to Instagram of his private full-size basketball court inside his mansion with the words: ‘My life for the next however long.’ 
Very relatable, I’m sure, to a family of ten living in a tiny home in the projects.
 
15) Actress Jaime King thanked coronavirus. No, seriously, that is exactly what she did – posting a photo of the virus with the caption ‘Thank you for shaking us and showing us.’ What the flying f*ck????? It’s shaking us into ICU beds and showing us how to die, you imbecile.

16) Avengers star Evangeline Lilly openly bragged about ignoring social distancing rules. ‘Just dropped my kids off at gymnastics camp,’ she tweeted, ‘they are playing and laughing. #businessasusual.’ 
She added: ‘Some people value their lives over freedom, some people value freedom over lives. We all make our choices.’ 
Yes, and some people clearly value shamefully selfish stupidity over common sense, don’t they Evangeline?

17) Elon Musk tweeted: ‘The coronavirus panic is dumb’ and ‘Fear is the mind-killer.’ No, Elon, what’s ‘dumb’ is an arrogant, ill-informed billionaire complacently dismissing very real and fully justified concerns over a deadly virus destroying lives and economies all over the world.

18) Kim Kardashian and Taylor Swift thinking anyone on the planet gives a rat’s a*se about their historically petty feud right now. We don’t, so shut up the pair of you.
 
19) Gwyneth Paltrow, star of the 2011 pandemic drama film Contagion, tweeted a photo of herself in a silly mask with the caption: ‘I’ve already been in this movie.’ This is not a bloody movie, Ms Paltrow, this is very damn real.

20) The Duke and Duchess of Sussex
As British royals like the Queen and Prince William have risen to the crisis and been comforting faces and voices for people less fortunate, Meghan and Harry flew in a private jet to Hollywood to look round potential $20 million Malibu homes, whilst posting their best wishes to UK health workers ‘from across the pond.’ 
I don’t want to hear another wordfrom this staggeringly entitled duo for the duration of this crisis.
