Britney Spears Encourages Wealth Distribution For People During Pandemic

Elizabeth Spina 25 Mar 2020

While most celebrities have come forward with one comment or another regarding the coronavirus, I'm surprised to say that Britney Spears' has been the boldest yet.

She took to Instagram yesterday, recommending wealth distribution as well as a strike, and it's got the Internet buzzing!

Unless, by some unlikely chance, you've been living under a rock, you're probably painfully aware of the strange, disturbing times we seem to be living in.

Dozens of celebrities are reaching out to their fans via social media, urging them to stay inside to protect the elderly and those with compromised immune systems.

Social distancing is key.

"So I talked to some doctors and scientists. It’s not the easiest for everyone right now but the kindest/healthiest thing we can do is self-quarantine and not hang out with people over 65 and in large groups," she wrote. "I wish I could see my parents and grandmas right now but it’s much safer to not so I don’t get them sick in case I have it."

Other than the possibility of death and lost loved ones, another major concern seems to be the economy.

Gyms, bars, restaurants, schools, and shops are temporarily closing down, events are being postponed, and countless employees are being laid-off.
