Over the weekend, Lana Del Rey held an impromptu meet-and-greet at the Grove in Los Angeles. The “Born to Die” singer read from her new collection, Violet Bent Backwards Over the Grass, and posed with fans at a Barnes & Noble store, wearing a glittery net mask that, um, did little to prevent the spread of the coronavirus.
Del Rey has yet to respond to the criticism.
Del Rey’s sister however claimed that the star had “tested negative” and always remained six feet away from fans. Yet several fans shared photographs from the event depicting them standing next to and touching Del Rey.
Twitter, of course, had some thoughts…

lana del rey being a dumb bitch once again, wearing a mask isn’t protecting others, hosting a book signing and having it shut down because they couldn’t follow the 6ft distance rule. pic.twitter.com/JKzsDEvoMC— 𝐞𝐥𝐥𝐢𝐞 (@SEV3NRINGS) October 3, 2020
