How bored are we?
Kapoor’s viral video comes just a day after a photograph of actor Priyanka Chopra and her husband Nick Jonas went viral, earning the couple much flack. In the snap, Jonas can be seen holding a fork and a knife over his wife’s derriere, implying that she is a “snack”. Read more on why the couple was trolled here.
This is not the first time a seemingly mundane clip or photograph of a celebrity has gone viral raising questions on how bored the pandemic has left the general public, that they have taken to living vicariously via celebs. Actors and social media stars seem to be back to the outdoors, sharing photographs from their holidays and lunch dates, while many people still staying indoors, waiting the pandemic out, or for their turn to get vaccinated. Hopefully the trend of making seemingly regular celeb pics and clips viral will die away as soon as we get to step outdoors and people can get on with their lives.
