Large wallets, small brains!

I’m sure many will not agree with me but I’m fed up with seeing so called “celebrities/footballers” flouting the rules for lockdown and in general because they can and they know they will get away with it! AIBU to expect these “role models” to behave decently? Because they receive huge salaries they think they are above societies rules and laws but actually make themselves look brainless. No amount of money can make up for brains and decency I’m afraid. Too much too soon and they really believe their own PR. How sad they are.

They get away with it - that's the point.

Neil Gaiman 'needed space' from his wife and their four year old son, while in New Zealand.
His solution?
Plane to Los Angeles, plane to London, car borrowed from a mate to drive the full length of the UK to his holiday home in Skye.
The local police reminded him of lockdown rules.
End of story. angry

I bet Neil Gaiman has a large house in NZ, and could have distanced himself from his wife without flying 11000 miles. What an idiot.

And Gaiman was stupid enough to put his exploits on a public blog. hmm

Nice message he’s sending to his little boy, too. angry

If the same people didn't have the cash they'd still be breaking rules in different ways.
There's no breeding in these characters no matter how much they're worth. Same goes for a lot of them. Their money talks because half of them can't string a sentence together.
What a sad world we live in.

Spot on Grandma1954.
You can`t educate the stupid.

These rich people, who do this type of thing, don't have the excuse that they were going nuts cooped up with the kids in a little flat.
They're just selfish and stupid.

As we see daily, now, Common Sense is not that Common.
And if you have enough money, rules are for other people.
Who would buy a new Bentley and have it painted in camouflage colours?

I'm so over celebrities and people's fascination with them- Its a cult I wish would disintegrate- A tent, sleeping bag, extension cord and subscription to a relaxing app would have cost less than all that transportation ..

SueDonim I couldn’t agree more.

Any man who chooses to move to the other side of the world from his 4 year old child, because he needs his own space, defies description on here.

Selfish [email protected] might do.
