Where people around the globe are in their homes fearing the invisible enemy, some are having the time of their lives. Humanity is facing one of the biggest pandemics ever with the spread of coronavirus.
The virus started from Wuhan City in China, and now it has made its grip around the world. In addition to China, several other countries around the world have become the epicenters of this virus.
But given all this, some carelessly proud people cannot get enough of themselves. Recently, billionaire David Geffen, 77, was criticized showcasing his wealth while having a wonderful and relaxing quarantine.
Geffen Flaunts Multi-Million Dollar Yacht
David Geffen posted pictures of his on Instagram on Saturday while showing how he is social distancing from the “rising sun.”

He captioned one of his pictures by writing, “Sunset last night, isolated in the Grenadines avoiding the virus. I am hoping everybody is staying safe.” This got a lot of backlash from people on Twitter for this gesture of his. The luxury quarantine on his yacht has become the prime spot for facing backlash from people.
“Just Give Everyone The Middle Finger”
One of the people wrote on Twitter, “Did David Geffen just give us the middle finger.” Where people around the world are struggling to make ends meet, such a portrayal of wealth and superiority is careless and inhuman on the part of David Geffen. Daily wage workers and such professionals are not getting paid as a result of quarantine.
After receiving this much backlash from people, Geffen made his Instagram profile private; Now, only his followers can see his posts. Well, this step was kind of necessary for him.
But there are many rich and wealthy who have indulged in charity and helping the world and its people fight this virus. A response like this from a billionaire in a situation like this is certainly not acceptable. No wonder David Geffen received the response that he got.
