American billionaire David Geffen slammed for flaunting self-isolation onboard his $590 million super yacht


In the helpless times of Covid-19, the last thing we want is for a pompous brat to boast about his riches. But doing just that is billionaire record producer -David Geffen who is recently posted an ill-thought commentary and a rather skewed display of solidarity on social media


Like the many who are currently posting self-isolation pictures on Instagram, Geffen too took to Instagram to put up a photograph of himself on his $590million superyacht called the Rising Sun. His post read – “Isolated in the Grenadines avoiding the virus — I hope everybody is staying safe.”. However, the music producer’s exemplary views on the pandemic were soon met with heavy criticism.

Calling it a ‘tone-deaf’ response to the global crisis, a social media user lashed out on Geffen saying – “David Geffen makes me wish I knew someone with a fully armed F-18,” while another wrote- “Maybe if he made a large donation for medical protective gear for our overworked nurses, doctors, and medical staff, he wouldn’t come off as an elitist jerk.”

The post also received backlash from celebrities with “The View” co-host Meghan McCain stating – “For God’s sake help this country get ventilators, our health workers masks and the medical supplies they need! Or no, just stay on your f**king yacht Instagramming. This is just shameful and grotesque.” While Geffen responded by making his account private, we wish he’d have done more than just that!
