Famous faces including Kim Kardashian, Chloe Ferry and a number of Love Island stars have come under fire for shamelessly advertising their ranges and endorsement deals during the Covid-19 crisis.
As the deadly bug continues to sweep across the globe, it seems to be business as usual for many reality stars.
As well as promoting their lines and advertising deals, some stars have been flaunting their freebies and even urging fans to join competitions to win holidays.
Chloe Ferry was called out by her followers this week when she posted a message offering fans the chance to win a holiday to Ibiza – even though travel across Europe has been massively restricted due to Covid-19.
In exchange for entering the contest, she was asking fans to like her post and following an Instagram advertiser.
One baffled fan simply wrote: “Bruh why would you wanna fly now?”
