It’s been over a year since that infamous “Imagine” video hit our timelines.
It featured actor Gal Gadot and a dozen or so of her A-lister friends singing into their phones as a gesture of togetherness at the beginning of the pandemic.
The intention was good but the gesture was empty. It wasn’t connected to raising money for charity or to any kind of pandemic aid. And that’s part of why it backfired for many social media users.
Online celebrity blunders have quickly become a pandemic-era staple. From the Kardashians escaping on a private island getaway, to Ellen comparing her mansion to jail, to Madonna calling COVID the “great equalizer” in her rose-petaled bathtub.
