Nobody said the quarantine would be easy. But you surely didn’t expect it to be this hard. Just take a look at our previous compilation of average Joes having a heck of a lockdown, from a canceled b-day bash to the cat using up their precious toilet roll inventory. Cat logic is among few things that aren’t cancelled these days.
Unless you belong to the gang of the rich and famous. While you’re slowly hibernating, A-listers are climbing the walls in their million-dollar mansions like there’s no tomorrow. But the internet loves fair game. The result is Bored Panda’s list of the most hilarious housebound celebrity memes. Enjoy and don’t forget to upvote your favorites! More funny roasts are welcome in the comments.
Just like the rest of us, celebrities are not perfect, and, just like the rest of us, they share a lot of their lives online. The difference is that no one will probably create a meme to make fun of us. Whew.
The good thing is that for every bored celebrity, uploading their heartfelt and/or hilarious home-alone video during the lockdown, there’s another star helping the world to fight against the coronavirus.
For example, Angelina Jolie has donated $1m to fight child hunger during the outbreak of COVID-19. She has given the cash to No Kid Hungry, which will provide meals for children from low-income families across the United States while schools are closed.
“As of this week, over a billion children are out of school worldwide because of closures linked to coronavirus,” Jolie said. “Many children depend on the care and nutrition they receive during school hours, including nearly 22 million children in America who rely on food support. No Kid Hungry is making resolute efforts to reach as many of those children as possible.”
Another good example is Rihanna. Her Clara Lionel Foundation (CLF) has donated $5m to various organizations both in the US and around the world. The money will go towards food banks in America, frontline health workers, research to develop a vaccine, and work to speed up testing and care in countries such as Haiti and Malawi.
Roger Federer and his wife Mirka say they have donated 1 million Swiss francs ($1.04m) “for the most vulnerable families” in Switzerland. “These are challenging times for everyone and nobody should be left behind,” the tennis star said.
Many other a-listers, including Lady Gaga, Arnold Schwarzenegger, and Gwyneth Paltrow, are also making a difference. Let’s hope more will follow in their footsteps and we won’t be seeing them in memes like these very often. In the meantime, enjoy scrolling.
