Ryan Reynolds Mocks Role of Celebrities in Getting People Through Coronavirus

Deadpool star Ryan Reynolds has shared a coronavirus PSA in the way only Ryan Reynolds can - throwing shade at other celebrities speaking out about the pandemic in the process.

Rather than taking to his Instagram to sing a song like Hugh Jackman or Gal Gadot, Ryan Reynolds recently uploaded a post to his Instagram poking fun at celebrity self-importance.

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

"Thank you, Prime Minister Trudeau", Reynolds says in the video of himself sitting on the couch and speaking directly to camera. We bring you stories on everything related to the viral pandemic, from the state response to social media fallout, and all the technical flubs, emerging social trends, and disinformation in between.

Big Hit Entertainment Invites Fans To "Learn Korean With BTS"
Fans wishing to learn Korean can catch the first three episodes of " Learn Korean With BTS " for free with a sign up on Weverse . A series of short video clips created to provide Korean language education to non-Korean fans will be launched this week.

Reynolds continued, "Right after healthcare workers of course. Sure. Like 400 other types of people". While the sing-along was probably in good faith, many people on social media weren't thrilled about it, considering the fact many people are losing their jobs. And though he didn't shy away from using his humour, in part, to do so, he ultimately had a very important message for his fans: "Stay at home".

"Stay at home, practice social distancing, wash your hands, we are going to get through this thing together", he added later on. "We're gonna get through this thing together".

After being nominated, Seth Rogen replied. I'm in my bunker where I've emptied out all my hoarded toilet paper and Purell to record this message.

Ryan Reynolds has shared a tongue-in-cheek video message about coronavirus.
