Norm MacDonald Skewers Celebrities for Singing Atheist Anthem During Coronavirus Pandemic
The smug Hollywood elite has once again caught the ire of legendary comedian and evangelical Christian Norm MacDonald.
MacDonald is irate over a recent viral video showing a group of A-list celebrities singing John Lennon’s pro-communist anthem Imagine in an attempt to help their fans cope with the coronavirus pandemic.
Featuring actors and actresses like Gal Gadot, James Marsden, Zoe Kravitz, Amy Adams, Mark Ruffalo, Jimmy Fallon and Natalie Portman, the display has been widely panned as showing how out-of-touch the Hollywood elite is with the public at large.
Their trite attempt to promote unity amidst a crisis be seen here:
The former Saturday Night Live comedian took great personal offense with the display considering the bleak, atheistic language in the song performed by the celebrities.
“Imagine some idiot celebrity telling her fans, in the middle of a Pandemic, to “Imagine there’s no heaven.”, when it is the only hope for so many of our elderly patients dying agonizing deaths while this rich lady smugly smiles,. mocking them and their faith in their last moments,” McDonald wrote on Twitter in a since-deleted post.
Although McDonald deleted his first tweet on the topic, he doubled down shortly afterward and expressed his anger once again with the Hollywood celebrities for their tone-deaf measure.
“I don’t know this celebrity was who sang “Imagine” online so the elderly ones who are dying agonizing deaths can be assured by a smug celebrity that there is no heaven. God, celebrities are idiots. Shame,” MacDonald wrote in a Tweet on Thursday.
MacDonald regularly takes on the entertainment industry to oppose their hypocrisy and moral preening. He was castigated in 2018 for his views about the #metoo witch hunt and comedy legend Roseanne Barr, who was unpersoned by Hollywood for making a joke.
“I’m happy the #MeToo movement has slowed down a little bit,” MacDonald said in 2018, adding that his comedy hero Barr is “not a racist.”
When asked about the destruction of legendary comedians like Barr and Louis C.K. by the left-wing mob, MacDonald said: “There are very few people that have gone through what they have, losing everything in a day. Of course, people will go, ‘What about the victims?’ But you know what? The victims didn’t have to go through that.”
In addition, MacDonald has made jokes in the past that many have considered derogatory and offensive to the LGBT community.
MacDonald is the last of a dying breed of comedians in the entertainment industry who refuse to bow at the altar of political correctness.
