Gia Gunn: ‘I honestly think this whole Covid-19 thing is a hoax’

(FILE) Idris Elba Tests Positive for Coronavirus COVID-19

Gia Gunn is famous for being a contestant on RuPaul’s Drag Race (season 6) and Drag Race: All Stars (season 4). She’s highly meme’d and GIF’d and I’m sure most Drag Race watchers know her and have an opinion of her. This is the first time I’ve really paid attention to her whatsoever, and my opinion is that she’s awful! Gia was going an Instagram Live on Friday and she ended up sounding exactly like those people in Florida. The Covid Truthers, or whatever the hell they’re calling themselves. Here’s what she said (the video is included at the end of the post):

Gia Gunn of “RuPaul’s Drag Race” fame believes COVID-19 and its resulting pandemic is a hoax.

“I think the whole mask thing is f–king ridiculous. I honestly think this whole COVID-19 thing is a hoax… I think everybody who is, you know, taking precautions is cute and it’s definitely the thing to do, but I also think a lot of people are brainwashed. I think the more and more that we look around and see each other with masks on, the more influenced we are going to be to also put our masks on, which then to me, insinuates that everything is not ok. I’m here to tell you guys that I think things are more okay than the government is allowing you to think.”

What the actual f–k is this argument she’s making? She thinks that more people will wear masks if they see other people wearing masks? I should hope so! This is absolutely the trend we need! She thinks corona is a hoax and people are “brainwashed” to… what exactly? Believe that deadly pandemic is real? That over 120,000 Americans have died because of it? JUST WEAR A MASK, YOU IDIOTS.

    Gia Gunn thrives in negative attention. Dont give it to her.

  2. Harla says:

    Yeah, people dying a slow, painful death, alone without their family members by their side is just a hoax. Idiot!

    • Capepopsie says:

      I totally Agree!

    • whatWHAT? says:

      I want to tell her to go lick some doorknobs at public buildings in Florida.

      we’ll see if she thinks it’s still a hoax after a couple of weeks.

  3. Restless Bitch Face says:

    The right to not wear masks, or whatever the hell people are trying to say, is so bizarre to me. Like, I’m going to guess (now follow me here) that many of these anti-maskers wear underwear, right? Could we make that conjecture? Ok, then if they regularly wear underwear because they believe it’s more hygienic, if they’re willing to wear a mask on their lady bits and their tushies, then why not a mask on their faces, which is just a germ vacuum when you’re in public? Am I wrong?

    • Lucy says:

      The one lady in the FL video said she doesn’t wear a mask and she doesn’t wear underwear because “Things Gotta Breathe”. I say that because how bizarre – I cannot get over stupid people!

      • Restless Bitch Face says:

        *whispers* my vagina has lungs?

      • tempest prognosticator says:

        @restlessbitchface, thank you for the guffaw! I think I love you.

      • (TheOG) jan90067 says:

        D.E.A.D! lolololol omg…the best comment ever!

      • pottymouth pup says:

        when that lady mentioned not wearing underwear because things gotta breathe, the first thing that came to mind was that she was admitting she gets chronic yeast/fungal infections or something

  4. lisa says:

    you may not believe in COVID but it believes in you

    • Tanguerita says:

      one can only hope in her case.

    • lola says:

      I read about a guy on twitter a few weeks ago who wanted to go mask less into a supermarket and the security guy said that he had to put a mask on. And the dude says that he doesn’t need one because he doesn’t believe in Covid and then the security guy said: “And I don’t believe you’re getting into the store”

  5. Eleonor says:

    Oh ffs…

  6. Gutterflower says:

    Ugh so disrespectful to the people who have died from this virus.

    • josephine says:

      And disrespectful for people who have to work in public places right now. My macho brother doesn’t want to wear a mask because it “doesn’t help.” What I told him is this – the mask is actually not about you. It’s about the cashiers working 8 hours or more a day and breathing in 100s of people’s germs. It’s about giving that person a chance and not being like the rest of the assholes who think that the cashier doesn’t deserve to remain healthy just because he or she is a cashier. It’s about recognizing that sometimes we need to make a teeny, tiny sacrifice to give someone else a better chance. Not to mention all of the other people affected, especially our health care workers.

    • Ellie says:

      What’s also disrespectful (to my eyeballs) are those horrific busted fake lashes in the header picture

  7. trillian says:

    We should just force all those idiots to help out in a hospital. And if they catch it, well, then I will send them some thoughts and no prayers.

  8. Michael says:

    I had absolutely no idea who this person was and I am happily going to go back to not knowing or caring who this person is

  9. lola says:

    Yeah, the hundreds of thousands dead people are actually not dead, but vacationing in Atlantis with Elvis.

    It’s truly terrifying that she’s not the one who thinks that Covid is a hoax and that Bill Gates wants to inject us microchips to control us. Those people truly scare me.

    • (TheOG) jan90067 says:

      I have an English friend like this, who is otherwise a *very* smart, successful man. Lives in Spain…and HE thinks Bill Gates and the “Cabal” (aka: One World Gov’t) have spread this to reduce populations and will implant a chip via vaccine. I just can’t.

  10. Bananas says:

    Seeing as tweedle dumb and tweedle dee are actively trying to kill as many people as possible, can’t the media step up and interview as many people as possible who have/had the virus? People need to see this is real. It’s kind of like putting the cancer images on cigarette packs.

    Let people who are struggling to recover and those that had to miss the death of a loved tell their story.

    Don’t show the horror of hospitals because that might put people off from getting treatment, but show those who regret not wearing a mask /going to that house party / taking a mini vacay…

  11. Izzy says:

    She’s REALLY gonna love wearing a ventilator. Maybe she can glam it up with some fking rhinestones… oh wait, she won’t be able to, she’ Be comatose. Good luck with that, honey.

    These people infuriate me. I live in Florida and the only place I’ve gone since March is my dad’s house. My mom lives in Canada. I may not get to see her until literally NEXT YEAR.

    • Izzy says:

      Wanted to add: and all that makes me LUCKY. People like her are why we have 125,000 dead and climbing. Selfish, inconsiderate, stupid, and completely science-illiterate.

    • Joanna says:

      Hey Izzy, if you don’t mind sharing, what part of FL do you live in? I’m in the Panhandle with tons of virus deniers.

      • Izzy says:

        I’m in Miami, where we seem to have no shortage of Covidiots but an alarming shortage of ICU beds.

  12. Lolo86lf says:

    Anti vaxxers and anti maskers have the same warped perception of reality. Ms. Gunn really sounds like an ignorant a-hole for believing COVID-19 is a hoax.

  13. Zappy says:

    Couple days ago, I lost a friend because covid-19. Her big sister died first, then 19 hours later her sister husband. Two days later, my friend died. So many people lost their love ones because this virus. People like her made people reckless.

  14. AnnaKist says:

    Ay yay yay yay yaaaaay. She thinks she’s quite the philosopher who’s had an original thought on this faux pandemic, doesn’t she? Bless her little cotton socks. If only there was a pill 💊 to fix stupid.

  15. Cupcake says:

    So sad. She’s hurting people by spreading this nonsense.

  16. Leah says:

    If she thinks the virus is a hoax, she’s really not going to like a ventilator. A tube down your throat helping you breathe is not very fashionable.

    I just can’t with deniers like her.

  17. SM says:

    What is a haox is her face. Wow. The eyes are painful to look at

  18. ME says:

    Well how about she go visit an ICU in a “hotspot”. Make sure she doesn’t wear a mask while visiting though because you know since the virus is fake and all.

  19. Alexandria says:

    Science and facts are becoming religion now.

    I’ve given up on these conspiracy theorists. So if you see one on your social media just comment K and move on. They chose to harm their friends and family. I just pity the healthcare workers who will be under strain.

  20. Minorbird says:

    I have no idea who this is and she is an idiot. Fix that wonky eye girl, those lashes must be too heavy.

  21. Dulcinea says:

    The pastor at my aunt’s church called it a hoax so my aunt took my 85 year old grandmother there. They both now have COVID and everyone they live with got Covid and now my gran is dying in hospital on her own whilst everyone else has recovered. By the way, we live in Texas and the test results are taking weeks to arrive to back to ppl.
    I really want to b*tch slap these “it’s a hoax” idiots.

  22. Clumsyme says:

    My sister in law and her best friend who are in their 20s, didn’t think they needed to wear a mask. Now the best friend tested positive for covid and my sister in law is waiting on her results. They’re still not taking it seriously though because they’re not “super” sick. Meanwhile the rest of us are worried that we could test positive.

  23. Amaria says:

    Gia is a professional troll at this point. She’s doing it on purpose, don’t feed her with attention.

  24. Nina Simone says:

    Gia is an awful person. I’ve been a fan of drag race for more than 10 years and saw her once at a store here in Chicago. I went up to her to congratulate her for her appearance on the show. And she was so nasty! Awwful to me and everyone. I was in such a state of shock, but my sister and other folks at the store told her off. Just wanted to share.

  25. Ana says:

    Her eyelashes are are dreadful.
    That’s all I got.

  26. Joh says:

    If she has as much trouble putting on a mask as she does with fake eyelashes, I could see her being anti-mask.

  27. Kerenza says:

    Do these ‘COVID is a hoax’ people think everyone in the UK, Europe and literally everywhere else are in on this con? Like wtf! It’s so amazingly self absorbed – like these people think the USA is the only country in the world.

  28. Nightsky says:

    Her masks comments are just nonsensical. And the hoax allegation tells me she is deliberately chumming the waters. Just spouting off controversial shit in a desperate ploy to make people pay attention to her. Shut up Gia. And have a little pride FFS.

  29. Samantha says:

    I’m from Australia so I have no idea who she is but what happened to her eyes? Has she had a stroke? Feeling sorry for her.

  30. holly hobby says:

    I was wondering who she was. Oh she’s another failed reality “star.” She should keep her opinions to herself. If she thinks it’s fake she can go hang out at one of those packed country concerts that’s given by those two equally clueless C&W singers.

  31. Teresa says:

    I am no way belitteling the seriousness of Covid in the world. But I do have questions and I think I have the right to ask them. I live in Northern Europe and healthwise we were not affected by Covid so badly. More people in our country die of flu every year than they did because of Covid. Also it is so important to define whether someone died of Covid or with Covid.
    We have not had new cases in our country for days, we practically don’t socially distance any more, the restaurants, spas and gyms have been open since June the 1st.
    I find it all so bizarre that some parts of the world are affected so badly and here – practically nothing.
