Lottie Moss brags she's a 'Covid super-spreader' as she kisses pal12/14/2020
Model Lottie Moss has apologised after she was branded a ‘Covidiot’ by angry punters, following a video in which she was seen joking she was a ‘super-spreader’ during a night with pals.
In the clip, made during an Instagram Live on Saturday night, the half-sister of Kate Moss can be seen engaging with followers alongside her friends.
As they read the posts coming through thick and fast, Lottie turned to one of her friends and they kissed, before returning to the chat.
It was at this stage a follower in the chat noted something about ‘spreading Covid-19’ to which Lottie’s friend laughed: ‘We’re super-spreaders.’
Lottie put on a voice as she appeared to mock the message and said: ‘We’re, like, super-spreading Covid.’
According to The Sun, she then urged her followers to ‘do whatever they want to do’.
The publication reports she said: ‘Don’t let anyone tell you how to act.
‘You’re young, fun and you can have the best time and do whatever you want to do.’
Addressing the video on Monday, Lottie shared a statement to Instagram as she apologised and said she was ‘still young a dumb’.
She wrote: ‘I just wanted to come on here and say I am so sorry for saying I was a super spreader – someone on the live popped up saying those words and I repeated them as a joke because I am not and would never condone spreading a virus as serious as this.
‘I was out for dinner with 4 friends, 4 of which are in the same household and under the government guidelines – as I live alone – I am allowed a support bubble of 4.
‘I understand this has upset and offended a lot of people and I wanted to apologise for making such an insensitive joke. (sic)’
Lottie added: ‘I am still young and dumb and learning – I sometimes forget that I am a pubic figure and during these crazy an uncertain times I should have been more careful with my words.’
Earlier, Lottie was photographed leaving Marylebone’s Xier restaurant with a group of friends, just days before it was being reported London may be plunged into Tier 3 restrictions.
Currently in Tier 2, guidelines stipulate you can only meet socially with friends or family members indoors who you live with, or you have formed a support bubble with – this also includes restaurants and private homes.
The model, who has followed in her big sister’s footsteps into a career in front of the camera, was met with backlash following the video, with many slamming the display.
One branded her a ‘Covidiot’, while another said she was ‘giving the middle finger to all NHS and front line workers’.
Labelling Lottie a ‘spoilt brat’, another wrote: ‘How can you even joke about being a super spreader when people are losing loved ones it just shows how little you care about anyone but your nights out. Such a spoilt brat.’
Another echoed similar sentiments, as they added: ‘Wow. Lottie Moss has drunkenly announced she’s a superspreader, while laughing, on her social media… while people can’t hold the hands of loved ones as they pass away. What a tone deaf, entitled, spoilt little brat.’
Metro.co.uk contacted Lottie’s reps for comment.
