Madonna is facing backlash online after she posted a video to Instagram calling the coronavirus “the great equalizer,” while sitting in a bathtub filled with rose petals and surrounded by candles. The clip garnered criticism from some, who accused her of being “out of touch.”

“That’s the thing about COVID-19,” Madonna said in the video posted Sunday. “It doesn’t care about how rich you are, how famous you are, how funny you are, how smart you are, where you live, how old you are, what amazing stories you can tell.”

The article goes on to state the following:

“It’s the great equalizer and what’s terrible about it is what’s great about it,” she continued. “What’s terrible about is it’s made us all equal in many ways and what’s wonderful about it is that it’s made us all equal in many ways … We’re all in the same boat. And if the ship goes down, we’re all going down together.”

A post shared by Madonna (@madonna) on

Online, Madonna was blasted for the post. On Instagram, on user wrote, “I have never trolled anyone on social media, but this is incredibly dumb, ignorant and elitist. Economic class, employment type/status, age, location actually do make a difference in this pandemic. Please stop posting these overly dramatic videos from your mansion and instead show us how you are supporting healthcare workers, medical facilities, and those who are most vulnerable.

Another wrote, “Madonna, I am a mental health nurse, I have no option to quarantine, my husband is vulnerable due to health conditions, and having to quarantine, I am now living on my drive way in a camper van no bigger than a shoe box. I cannot see him again or my fury baby until this hell is over. I am scared every day going to work, but my fear is coming home from work and putting my husband at risk. So get out of your luxurious bath, and spare a thought for the common folk!”

On Twitter, journalist Soledad O’Brien wrote, “One of our scholars lost her mom last night. Mom was sick for a while and died in hospice. Her father passed a couple of months ago. She’s 21 and now we’ve paid to bury both her parents. So no, Madonna in your petal bath, this is not the great equalizer. People are struggling.”

“Pontificating from a bath of rose petals whilst people out there are losing their jobs, left unable to pay rent and utility bills, struggling to find food and basic necessities? To them C-19 is not ‘the great equaliser’. C-19 is a revealer of exactly how unequal our society is,” tweeted Twitter user Telegram Sam.

“My friend is really struggling with self isolating, he said the only thing that would help is for Madonna to release a video of herself in a rose petal filled bath while mumbling incoherently,” Twitter user Dave mocked. “I was able to deliver the good news to him.”

Even Huffington Post commented:

“The singer called the global pandemic a ‘great equalizer,’ while soaking in a rose petal bath.”
