So… I’m not sure if you saw, but a number of celebs – including Gal Gadot, Natalie Portman, and Mark Ruffalo – got together to do a quickie music video, singing John Lennon’s timeless classic “Imagine.”
“Day 6 in self-quarantine and I got to say these past few days got me feeling a bit philosophical,” said Gadot in an Instagram video. “You know this virus has affected the entire world, everyone. It doesn’t matter who you are, where you’re from. We’re all in this together.”

Twitter reaction was swift and brutal with most people saying that pampered celebs isolating in their mansions and singing about the glory of having “no possessions” was tone-deaf at best and willfully obtuse at worst. Most were annoyed that celebrities would sing a cover instead of donating money to relief funds.
