Larry the Cable Guy criticized the recent compilation of celebrities singing “Imagine” on social media by pointing out how tone deaf the group of millionaires are to the real life problems that common Americans are currently facing during the COVID-19 pandemic.

California is facing some of the worst conditions for homeless people in America, and this issue has been worsened due to the current quarantines and shutdowns in place. The celebrities that contributed to the video are being accused of overlooking the problems in their hometown of Los Angeles.

In a response to Gal Gadot’s post of the song, Larry the Cable Guy tweeted “Here’s a message from people with a lot of possessions that can take a year off of work and not flinch telling everyone outa work to imagine a world with no possessions while people are living in the street a half mile away from ‘em,”

Gal Gadot began the online montage by stating that the she has been self-quarantined for nearly a week and she felt “philosophical”.

Celebrities such as fellow Wonder Woman: 1984 star Kristen Wiig joined Will Ferrell, Zoe Kravitz, Sarah Silverman, Jimmy Fallon and several others as they sang the famous John Lennon song signaling that they relate to what their fellow citizens are experiencing.

Their collective star power was used to sing a song, sparking a debate on social media whether pitting the strategies of using their massive influence to spread information like social distancing and washing hands against their chosen strategy to inspire hope via a group serenade.

Larry the Cable Guy, who hosts a weekly radio show on SiriusXM from the Funny Bone comedy club in Omaha, Nebraska, was not the only person on social media to highlight the apparent disconnect between the celebrities and the issues facing the rest of the world that is less financially secure. The montage provided material for mockery, memes and parodies that may ironically entertain people and outlast the pandemic itself.
