NEW YORK (1010 WINS) -- Actress Vanessa Hudgens is facing backlash after saying deaths from cornavirus were "inevitable."

While on Instagram live Monday, Hudgens asked how fans were doing and asked if everyone was freaking out about COVID-19.

One fan named Austin commented that he was being tested for possible coronavirus. Hudgens said, "good luck with your test. You might have it but you'll be ok considering you're a younger healthy person."

Then she was asked when she was going to London and said, "I don't know. How long is this s**t going to last?" She moved off the topic for a bit but then came back to coronavirus.

"Um, yeah, till July sounds like a bunch of bulls**t, I’m sorry. But like, it’s a virus, I get it, like, I respect it. But at the same time, like, even if everybody gets it, like, yeah, people are gonna die. Which is terrible, but like, inevitable? I don’t know, maybe I shouldn’t be doing this right now."

Fans took to Twitter to post their reactions, including actor James Woods who told her to rethink it and delete it, among other things.
