Several celebrities have come out to advocate for people to stay at home amid the coronavirus pandemic. However, John Legend has been one of the most vocal.

In his latest campaign to advocate for social distancing, the "All of Me" singer slammed churches that defy the stay-at-home order and told their members to gather for any reason.

John had posted a link to Twitter describing how a Washington Church had decided to move ahead with choir rehearsals. The decision led to a massive outbreak among the members, with dozens already infected and two deaths.

The case has caused massive outcry already. Many people have criticized the church's leaders for allowing the service to go on despite strict guidelines to stay at home.

John shared the link to bring awareness, especially to members of the older community who might not know about it.

Someone responded to the tweet, explaining that many churches have taken this as a test of faith. She added that these churches tell their members that "true believers" won't refrain from church, even in a pandemic.

"Don't let these pastors kill your auntie or grandparent," John said in response. He added that while he understands the challenges of believers, this isn't the time to gather for any reason.

John isn't hypocritical. Like many celebrities, he and his family have been forced to stay at home during the pandemic. However, they've also found some time to entertain their family and do some fun stuff.

Since the pandemic started, John and Chrissy have been with their children. Thus, they have been responsible for finding fun things for the whole family to do.

So far, they've planned a wedding for a stuffed bunny and a goat, they've played animal crossing, and they've been catching up on some of their favorite TV shows.

Of course, this isn't to say that it's all been fun and roses. Last week, they explained in an interview with Ellen DeGeneres that through all of it, staying at home has taken a bit of a toll on them too.

In the interview, Chrissy Teigen explained that while they were holding up, their time at home had gotten to them too.

They identified that the situation is unprecedented, and while you can stay positive, there are times when you get emotional about it. For now, they're staying in touch with their family and just being positive through it all.
