Kelly Dodd took to Instagram to “clarify” comments she made about the coronavirus pandemic — again.
The reality star said on her Instagram Story Monday, “No one is wearing masks here in Orange County. Yup, because no one is dying here of the virus.” However, the county’s death toll was up to 133 as of Monday.
“I was by no means minimizing deaths that have been caused by this virus, and I feel for their loved ones,” Dodd, 44, said in response to our report. “However, Orange County has 133 deaths out of 3 million people — much lower than most.”
Addressing her celebratory remarks about people not wearing masks, she added, “I felt encouraged and excited that people were out and about and there was some semblance of normalcy.”
The “RHOC” star also blasted Us Weekly for accusing Dodd of not wearing a mask herself in the video she recorded on Memorial Day.
“I was wearing a mask,” she said before pointing to her mom in the clip. “This lady right here was not wearing the mask, and no patrons when we were eating were wearing the mask. The servers were, but you can’t eat with a mask on, so get your facts straight.”
This is not the first time Dodd has had to “clarify” her remarks about the pandemic.
In April, she apologized repeatedly for saying COVID-19 is “God’s way of thinning the herd.” Two weeks later, she then came under fire again for saying, “Well, people are going to die! I’m sorry to tell ya.”
