On Tuesday, former High School Musical star Vanessa Hudgens had to apologize for comments she made on Monday, when she said that a quarantine until July was "bulls**t" and people dying was "inevitable." “Um, yeah, ’til July sounds like a bunch of bullsh**,” she said to her 38.4 million followers on Instagram, according to The Hollywood Reporter. “I’m sorry, but like, it’s a virus, I get it, like, I respect it, but at the same time, I’m like, even if everybody gets it, like yeah, people are going to die, which is terrible but like, inevitable? I don't know, maybe I shouldn't be doing this right now,” she said. Internet users were incensed, reports Complex. "Vanessa Hudgens really went from “we’re all in this together” to “we’re all gonna die anyway," said one social media user. However, on Tuesday the actress seemed to recognize people weren't happy. "I realize that some of my comments are being taken out of context. It’s a crazy time.  I don't take the situation lightly, by any means. I am home." she said. She clarified even more again later, writing, "I realize my words were insensitive and not at all appropriate for the situation our country and the world are in right now. This has been a huge wake up call about the significance my words have, now more than ever."
