Scheana Shay has been in several headlines about the pandemic

Shay was criticized on social media a few days ago when she posted on Twitter about having friends over in the middle of the pandemic when government officials are encouraging people to practice social distancing. She first said, “Any of my friends working from home this week should come join me for a Palm Springs quarantine.”

Shay later doubled down on her initial statement, saying, “I will continue to live my life in Palm Springs or MDR w my friends and not live it in complete isolation or fear. Simple as that. Call me ‘ignorant’ but I’m not gonna stop living!”

After she received many tweets from fans who criticized what she said, letting her know how she was putting people in danger, Shay went back to Twitter to give an apology.

“For those who expressed concern or viewed my remarks as insensitive, I had just returned from a work trip and wasn’t fully updated on the pandemic. I now understand the severity of our current predicament. Please stay safe, and wash your d*mn hands,” she said.

The TV personality wants folks to stop asking for money and fans agree

Not that long after her tweet about hanging out with friends during the pandemic, the Vanderpump Rules star made a post on social media about fans sending her Venmo requests for money during the outbreak and social distancing.

Shay posted on Twitter, “This is a crazy time! But PLEASE you guys, stop asking me for $ on @venmo. It makes me feel terrible reading your stories of why you need $$ and I am not rich! I support my family and have a ton of friends in the same situation right now. I wish I could help everyone but I can’t.”

A lot of fans began responding to her tweet and quote tweeting it, agreeing with her.

“No one should be asking you for money everyone is in the same boat,” said one fan.

Someone else tweeted, “LOL the audacity to think she even NEEDS to say this out loud. You know how many real celebrities probably get the same messages for money 24/7?? Honestly humble yourself, you keep getting in heat because you don’t think before you type. This is beyond self absorbed.”

Vanderpump Rules airs weekdays on Bravo.
