Kelly Dodd is at it again.
On Monday, the "Real Housewives of Orange County" star downplayed the coronavirus pandemic while eating at a restaurant in her hometown.
"Yay, we finally get to have a meal out," she said in a video posted to her Instagram Story. "Yay, no one's wearing masks. I love it. Yay!"
Later, while inside the restaurant, Kelly continued to celebrate that few people appeared to be wearing masks, albeit some of them may have taken them off in order to eat their food.
"Yeah, no one's wearing masks here in Orange County. Yup, because no one is dying here of the virus," Kelly said, as two servers, both wearing masks, approached her table.
As Kelly all but declared Orange County immune to the coronavirus, media reports said the county's death toll is up to 133.
The reality TV star later shared a quote to her Instagram reading, "It's not the government's job to protect my health. It's the government's job to protect my RIGHTS. It's my job to protect my health. When you trade liberty for safety you end up losing both."
After media outlets began printing her comments, Kelly attempted to clarify what she meant.
"I was by no means minimizing deaths that have been caused by this virus, and I feel for their loved ones," she said. "However, Orange County has 133 deaths out of 3 million people — much lower than most."
She added that she was celebratory about very few people wearing masks because she "felt encouraged and excited that people were out and about and there was some semblance of normalcy."
This is hardly the first time that Kelly's been outspoken in her views on the global pandemic.
Last month, she said the virus was "God's way of thinning the herd." She even wrote that regardless of the pandemic, "That many [would have] died anyway!!" Kelly later apologized twice, claiming she's "not insensitive." She also encouraged people to "stay home and protect everybody."
She later called her own comments "so ridiculous and so stupid."
However, just a few weeks later, she compared the virus to the flu and again seemed apathetic about the lives lost.
During that video, a friend chatted 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."
Nearly 100,000 people have died in the United States due to Covid-19 complications.
