Dr. Phil McGraw called out people who continue social activities amid the COVID-19 pandemic. He wondered why these individuals could not seem to accept the reality that they are all at risk.
He also criticized them for not practicing physical distancing measures implemented by the government. McGraw described these people as entitled and selfish.
"If people are invested in anything, and they're hedonistic and entitled, then they're reluctant to give it up," McGraw said in a video shared on TMZ's YouTube channel. "That's just so selfish and immature that they're putting people at risk."

He made his message for those who continue with their extramarital affairs and for the college students on spring break. He also called out religious groups who cramped inside churches despite the threatening virus, as reported by TMZ.
Needless to say, everyone should make an effort to fight the virus. The government has been giving out warnings to the public about the global crisis, as reported by Pop Culture.
To prevent the virus from spreading further, everyone has to make certain sacrifices. For example, they should avoid socializing and attending events.
McGraw explained that the situation is a reality that is hard to accept for many. There are those who continue to ignore the facts about COVID-19.
Staying in large groups is not advisable as it puts more people in danger. McGraw said that people who live in denial also lack empathy towards other people.
All public figures are urging people to stay at home to prevent the virus from spreading to more people.

"I talked to several people last week when I was taping the show right here from the kitchen and they're just telling themselves 'This just isn't true,'" McGraw said. "They don't want it to be true, so it isn't true.'"
All public figures are urging people to stay at home to prevent the virus from spreading to more people. One of them is Kendall Jenner, who currently misses her friends, as reported by Pop Culture.
The famous model posted on Instagram several photos of her friends, including Gigi Hadid. She advised everyone that the more time they spend quarantined at home, the sooner they can get back to seeing their friends.
Her sister, Kylie Jenner, also said that aside from self-quarantine, they should also practice physical distancing. She added that no one is immune to the virus.
In another news about McGraw, he once made clarifications about the rumor that he had a gun display at his house. Setting the record straight, that the décor that looked like a gun display was, in fact, an anti-gun display.
