Gal Gadot and stars slammed for ‘not helping’ fans’ coronavirus woes by singing John Lennon’s imagine – The Sun

GAL Gadot has brought together several celebrities, including Natalie Portman and Zoe Kravitz, to sing a rendition of John Lennon's Imagine as they world self-quarantines – but fans are not happy.

Gal, 34, took to social media to share the inspiring video amid the global coronavirus pandemic which has forced many people to self-isolate at home.

However, while many fans loved the video, several others criticised her saying she and the other celebrities should donate money in order to really help the current crisis.

Addressing her 36.8 million followers on Instagram, the Wonder Woman star said: "Hey guys. Day six in self-quarantine and I've gotta say that these past few days got me feeling a bit philosophical.

"This virus had affected the entire world, everyone. It doesn't matter who you are or where you're from, we're all in this together."

Gal continued: "I ran into this video of this Italian guy playing the trumpet on his balcony to all the other people who are locked inside their homes and he was playing Imagine and there was something so powerful and pure about this video, and it goes like this…"

The Israeli-born actress then started singing the 1971 hit before a string of celebrities joined and sang lines from the song too.

Stars such as Kristen Wiig, Jamie Dornan, Labrinth, James Marsden and Sarah Silverman are all seen delivering lines from the popular tune.

The video continues with celebrities Eddie Benjamin, Jimmy Fallon, Pedro Pascal, Chris O'Dowd and his wife Dawn O'Porter.

Gal even enlisted the original Wonder Woman herself, Lynda Carter, along with Amy Adams and Leslie Odom Jr.

The video ends with verses by Will Ferrell, Mark Ruffalo, Norah Jones, Ashley Benson, Kaia Gerber, Cara Delevingne, Annie Mumolo and Maya Rudolph, before going back to Gal who sings the final line.

Gal captioned the post: "We are in this together, we will get through it together. Let’s imagine together. Sing with us ❤ All love to you, from me and my dear friends."

Many followers posted positive comments and even said the clip had them in tears.

"Thank you for this!” one fan wrote, while another commented: “Wow! Absolutely love it alright I’m crying at this point.. so sweet ❤️❤️??? this is so beautiful ❤️❤️.”

A third person added: “Thanks for making us smile Gal!” while a fourth posted: “Thank you for being the symbol of hope ..our wonder woman.”

However, some slammed the brunette star and spoke of their reality and struggles as they find themselves at home and out of work.

“This is cute and all but a lot of us are out of work. Myself and all of my friends sooooo… you’ll still be rich while we scrounge to get by. We aren’t in this together, appreciate the sentiment though…" one fan commented.

A second person wrote: "BOO donate if you really care about the world," while a third added: "A song won't help us at this point."

Over on Twitter, even more people were having their say with one person even claiming they had "ruined a beautiful song" and saying they had "bloated egos".
