Kelly Dodd is again under fire for her controversial take on the Covid-19 pandemic.
In a recent Instagram Live video, the "Real Housewives of Orange County" star appeared apathetic to the people losing their lives, while also seemingly comparing the coronavirus to "the flu."
During the video, a friend chats with the reality TV star about the pandemic, speaking specifically about the number of deaths in New York.
"But how many people die on a daily basis?" Kelly asks, then adds, "Well, people are going to die! I'm sorry to tell ya."
The comment sparked outrage among "Housewives" alum.
"Unbelievable!!!" Tamra Judge commented on the video. "What will it take for her to understand how serious this is ? People are dying everywhere. Where's your compassion???"
Vicki Gunvalson, who has also made controversial comments, simply replied, "Wow."
In the United States alone, there have been nearly 80,000 deaths related to the Covid-19 pandemic. The number continues to rise.
Kelly's comments come less than a month after she caught backlash for saying Covid-19 was "God's way of thinning the herd."
Afterward, she apologized twice.
"I want to give a public apology. When I wrote this is God's way of thinning the herd, that's not what I meant. What I meant was, do these pandemic's happen because it's God's way? I'm not God. I'm not insensitive," she said from her backyard on her Instagram Story. "I feel bad for all the families who have lost loved ones. And I do think 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."
She issued a separate apology calling her comments "so ridiculous and so stupid."
Over the weekend, perhaps as a response to the latest backlash, Kelly posted a video titled "Dealing With Haters?"
The idea, she said, is to become "a chameleon."
