Famous pop star Madonna drew backlash after calling coronavirus the "Great Equalizer" in her most recent video. 


The 61-year-old singer has already deleted the video from her social media accounts. However, it was quickly downloaded and shared by other people online.

In the video, Madonna can be seen stripping down in a bathtub brimming with flower petals. She then talks about how the virus doesn't discriminate.

"That's the thing about COVID-19," Madonna said, as reported by US Weekly. She added that "it doesn't care about how rich you are, how famous you are, how funny you are, how smart you are, where you live, how old you are, what amazing stories you can tell."

As she speaks in the video, the piano music can be heard playing in the background. "It's the great equalizer and what's terrible about it is what's great about it," Madonna said.

The "Material Girl" singer continued that what's horrible about the coronavirus is that it's made us all equal in many ways, and what's terrific about it is that it's made us all equal in many ways.



In the clip, Madonna also mentioned that we are all in the same boat and that if the ship goes down, we're all going down together.

Social media users were rushed to critique the singer's comments in the comments section. A fan of Madonna for a long time said that she's disappointed the pop star hasn't donated a dime to relief efforts when business and lives are falling apart.
