Many celebrities lost their homes in the California wildfires, and social media is mocking them. Wtf?!
The biggest wildfires in California history have been the trending topic for the last couple of days. With celebrities such as Miley Cyrus, Camille Grammar, and Gerard Butler reporting total property loss, members of social media have been making their opinion known. The sad part is, the majority of people on social media are mocking the property loss.
People are saying that it is "no big deal that some celebrities lost their homes, because they have insurance and have 5 more homes." The same people have also said that it is an "insult that celebrity loss is being reported, and real loss isn't."
Last I checked, any loss is a real loss. Just because someone is a celebrity, it does not make them immune to loss. As for mocking them for losing their homes, who are you to mock this loss? These people lost complete homes. They had roots in these homes, memories, and mementos that cannot be replaced. It is a devastating loss, and no amount of money can fix those types of losses.
Also, what is not being talked about as much is what some of the evacuated celebrities are doing for the hardworking firefighters. Khloe Kardashian went into a CVS and bought a sh*t ton of stuff for those who are trying to stop the fires.
Whether they are directly or indirectly affected by the fires, celebrities are posting links to where people can donate money, water, and such.
I don't know who raised those of you who are savagely mocking celebs who lost their homes, but you should all be ashamed of yourselves. I hope you never experience a total loss of property. No matter how rich or poor someone is, losing a place where you had roots and memories is tragic and the most expensive thing imaginable.
You might want to take a good and hard look at yourselves.
My thoughts and prayers are with California at this time, and the loved ones of the 31 souls lost in the fire. I have visited California a few times and I love the state. I pray that the flames die out and no more loss is experienced. God, please be with the good folks in California. Please put out these fires.
