The Shade Room reports that Idris took to his social media to clap back at those who believe he, and other celebrities, are lying about having COVID-19 for a paycheck.
Following he and his wife Sabrina Elba’s positive diagnoses for the coronavirus, Idris decided to fire back at claims that celebrities are being paid to lie about having the virus.
“This idea that someone like myself is gonna be paid to say ‘I’ve got coronavirus,’ that’s like absolute bulls**t,” Idris Elba said. “Such stupidness and people wanna spread that as if it’s like news. That’s stupid…That’s the quickest way to get people sick.”
