Shared by Twitter user Greta Lee Jackson, the video features people talking about things they’ve had to deal with due to coronavirus, including lost jobs, deaths of family members and more. After each person explains their situation, they offer a sarcastic “thanks” to various celebrities. Some of the celebrities mentioned in the video include Ellen Degeneres, Amanda Keller, Manu from Masterchef, Sam Armitage and Alf Stewart.
Jackson captioned her video with, “Thanks, celebrities, for everything you do for us,” and added the hashtag #giveusyourmoney.
