An influencer and leader in every way...
Kim Kardashian has stepped up to the plate and used her celebrity status for the good of humankind once again! Well, actually... she already did months ago, we're just now hearing about it. According to CNN, Kim K reached out to Dr. Anthony Fauci earlier this year – when the novel coronavirus first began really taking its toll on people – and arranged for a Zoom call between he and 36 A-list celebrities. The well-known immunologist thought this would be a good idea being that said 36 individuals combined have the power to reach millions of people at once via social media.
The celebs mainly wanted questions regarding face masks and social distancing answered but That 70s Show stars Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher had food on the brain!
Fauci said among the questions was one from "Black Swan" star Kunis about whether he eats take-out food.
"I told her I feel badly about restaurants losing business, and I feel it's almost a neighborly obligation to keep neighborhood restaurants afloat, so even though I can cook at home, several nights a week I go out for take-out purely to support those places. I told her the one thing she can do instead of worrying is wash her hands," Fauci remembered.
The Zoom meeting was Kim's idea following a national outcry by the Surgeon General to media influencers, namely Kylie Jenner. Check out the Good Morning America clip below:
