On Saturday night, a line-up of A-list celebrities took part in the “One World” benefit concert for the World Health Organization (WHO). This has since come back to bite the stars, however, as they are being widely slammed for participating in a concert to raise money for an organization that many feel is responsible for helping to cover up the coronavirus pandemic when it was still in China.
Breitbart News reported that the lineup of performers included Taylor Swift, Paul McCartney, The Rolling Stones, Beyonce, Oprah Winfrey, Jennifer Lopez, Elton John, and Lady Gaga, who went so far as to describe WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom as a “superstar.” Former first ladies Michelle Obama and Laura Bush also made appearances during the benefit, as did former soccer star David Beckham and Microsoft founder Bill Gates.
It didn’t take long for the backlash to start pouring in, however, as social media users made it clear that WHO should not be supported. “If I could give No stars I would,” one social media user commented. “WHO lied! People died!! Let’s not forgot this!!! While we’re home given up our freedom and most of us without jobs these CELEBRITIES ask us to help raise money for the WHO?! Forget it!”
“Yes, we need useless celebrities preaching to us how this isn’t China’s fault and how we should just all live as one nation,” another user added, with a third writing, “That one world together at home commie propaganda sponsored by the CCP WHO and this global citizen bull crap is on at least 20 different stations. You can take your commie propaganda and shove it. THIS IS AMERICA! We are not global citizens we are AMERICAN CITIZENS!!’
Disgrace, you have no ground to stand on after this episode. Failed to signal what was coming out of 🇨🇳 failed to confirm a pandemic until it was too late, you were behind the curve permanently

This would be a wonderful message if Tedros had performed in the initial stages of the fight. He should apologise to the world, otherwise, atulekemu!

This comes after President Donald Trump announced that he would cease funding the WHO because of their connections to China. “Today I’m instructing my administration to halt funding of the World Health Organization while a review is conducted to assess the World Health Organization’s role in severely mismanaging and covering up the spread of the coronavirus,” Trump said on Tuesday. “The WHO’s attack on travel restrictions put political correctness above life-saving measures. The reality is that the WHO failed to adequately obtain, vet and share information in a timely and transparent fashion. Fortunately, I was not convinced and suspended travel from China, saving untold numbers of lives.”
It’s despicable that these celebrities are supporting an organization like the WHO right now when they clearly are partly to blame for the situation the world is currently in. The stars have become so infected with Trump Derangement Syndrome that they are willing to support any organization that he opposes, even if it means exposing their own ignorance in the process.
