Ryan Reynolds Jokes That Celebrities Will ''Get Us Through'' COVID-19

Ryan Reynolds and Seth Rogen wants you to practice physical distancing (VIDEOS) | News

Ryan Reynolds posted his own coronavirus video to Twitter this week, acknowledging the inherent silliness of celebrities who are latching on to the worldwide crisis.

Ryan recently dropped around $1 million to several food banks alongside his wife, Blake Lively.

Reynolds does make an excellent point - though it's great when celebrities use their platforms to reinforce public health messages, it's really the experts we should be listening to.

Four-time Olympic hockey gold medalist Hayley Wickenheiser, who is in her final year of medical school also joined the call, telling Canadians to stay home.

Uproxx picked up on a post from the Deadpool alum where he jokingly emphasized the importance of listening to him because he has an "important message" and is an "important celebrity".

Like Trudeau, Reynolds asked fellow Canadian celebs Seth Rogen and Steven Page to spread the word.

Spain's virus death toll shoots past 1,300
Work is continuing to prepare more hospital beds, with hotels being converted into hospitals for people who are not seriously ill. The death toll in Spain jumped to 1,326 from 1,002 the day before, according to Health Ministry data released on Saturday.

In the video, Reynolds scoffed at the idea that celebrities should be counted on "in times of crisis".

While Ryan Reynolds doesn't specifically say it, I can: No one wants to hear or gives a sh-t what these celebrities think, especially in times of trouble.

"They're the ones who will get us through this, right after healthcare workers of course, first responders, people who work in essential services, ping pong players". Childhood imaginary friends, sure.

"Everyone needs to step up to fight against this virus", Trudeau said, urging frequent hand-washing and keeping two metres (six feet) apart from others in public if people must go out to buy groceries and the like.

Reynolds then ends his minute-long video on a more serious note.

Bublé also responded in a tweet of his own: "Please, if you can, if at all possible, stay home".
