I read this trying to keep an open mind, but your frustration sounds more like jealousy through 75% of it. While I definitely agree with you regarding Vanessa Hudgens and Madonna and a few others, I just am not mad at rich people in their fancier homes. Everybody is not going to go out of their way to be Redman from “Cribs” and anyone who does not want to see their homes or hear their messages can opt out.

But in all fairness, I do not follow any of the people you mentioned. (Maybe Zoe Kravitz but I cannot remember.) Why not just reevaluate your social media following? Easy way to resolve the issue. Them being rich is not the cause of coronavirus.

Personally I am finding it fascinating to see how folks that I do admire live. I was fascinated by Trevor Noah’s decor, Stephen Colbert’s fireplace and Jimmy Fallon’s slide. I am entertained by LeBron’s Tik Tok videos. And as much as I would love to put an end to nonstop Fenty ads, Rihanna is doing quite a bit as a humanitarian. But I also do not feel a way when I see someone doing better than me economically (minus the GOP), specifically those who give back or speak to my demographics.

I think you may want to reevaluate yours. It will save you a lot of frustration that celebrities or a COVID cure simply will not. From this particular post, it sounds like you would have an issue with them regardless. If you follow a bunch of superficial to begin with (Madonna and Arnold Schwarzenegger have looooooong ago proven that point), then you cannot be mad at them for being what they have been this entire time.
