Kelly Dodd is once again sparking outrage with her controversial views on the COVID-19 crisis.
During Instagram Live last week, a pal told the “Real Housewives of Orange County” star, “It’s more every day. In New York, we’re down to 250 [deaths] a day.”
Dodd, 44, then seemingly compared coronavirus to “the flu” and added, “But how many people die on a daily basis? … Well, people are going to die! I’m sorry to tell ya.”
The comments made many people upset on social media, including Dodd’s former “RHOC” co-stars Tamra Judge and Vicki Gunvalson.
“Unbelievable!!!” Judge, 52, commented in a post of the clip. “What will it take for her to understand how serious this is ? People are dying everywhere. Where’s your compassion???”
Gunvalson — who was previously slammed herself for advocating for the reopening of beauty salons amid the pandemic — simply added, “Wow!”
Dodd first came under fire in April when she claimed the coronavirus pandemic was “God’s way of thinning the herd.”
However, the “RHOC” star quickly apologized, saying, “That’s not what I meant.”
“I’m not insensitive,” she said at the time. “I feel bad for all the families that lost loved ones, and I do think that we should all stay home and protect everybody. That’s not what I meant, and I want to apologize to anyone who got offended, OK? I’m sorry.” Dodd did not immediately return our request for comment about her latest remarks.
