VANESSA HUDGENS Apologizes After Getting 'Cancelled' For Distasteful Coronavirus Remarks
Vanessa Hudgens readily apologized after getting #cancelledt following her controversial remarks in light of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Apparently, it all began when the High School Musical star learned that this year's Coachella will not be pushing through as scheduled.
Vanessa aired her grievances in her Instagram live sesh. She said: "Yeah, 'til July sounds like a bunch of bullsh*t. I'm sorry but like, it's a virus, I get it. Like, I respect it but at the same time, like, even if everybody gets it, like... yeah, people are gonna die, which is terrible, but like... inevitable?"
The distasteful comments amid the global health crisis didn't sit well with fans who lambasted Vanessa on Twitter:

What people like Vanessa Hudgens don’t realize is that while they are missing Coachella, the rest of us are missing paychecks. While she struggles to stay relevant, the rest of us struggle to provide for our families. pic.twitter.com/EMJayvg6bf— Tara Hobbit 🧝🏻♀️ (@TaraHobbit) March 17, 2020

The Princess Switch star took to her socials following the backlash to explain her side and apologize for the comments she made: "I'm so sorry for the way I have offended anyone and everyone who has seen the clip from my Instagram live yesterday. I realize my words were insensitive and not at all appropriate for the situation our country and the world are in right now."
She remorsely continued by saying, "This has been a huge wake up call about the significance my words have, now more than ever. I'm sending safe wishes to everyone to stay safe and healthy during this crazy time."
Before the IG Live session, positive nostalgic comments poured in for Vanessa as she posted a TikTok duet with her HSM co-star Ashley Tisdale dancing the famous steps to the iconic 2006 film's theme song "We're All In This Together."
Vanessa wasn't seen dancing the steps though but, instead, opening a bottle of wine and comically lip-syncing the song.
