Actor Ryan Reynolds is a funny guy — in the movies, and in real life.
He posted a hilarious video on Twitter this week in which he mocked celebrities for their grandiosity.
“We need to work to flatten the curve and fight off COVID-19. I think in times of crisis, I think we all know that it’s the celebrities we count on most,” Reynolds said. “They’re the ones that are going to get us through this.
“Right after healthcare workers, of course,” he said. “First responders. People who work in essential services. Ping pong players. Mannequins, they’re great. Childhood imaginary friends, sure. Like 400 other types of people.”
Then he offered some good advice.
“Look, stay at home, practice social-distancing, wash your hands. We are gonna get through this thing. We’re gonna get through this thing together,” he concluded.
Another important message from an important celebrity. Let’s spread the word not the virus. I happily nominate, @stevenpage @Sethrogen and @TerryR49776917 #PlankTheCurve #StayAtHomeSaveLives pic.twitter.com/IRJNI9Y6G9

Others have used comedy to lighten the mood, as writer Joseph Curl of The Washington Times pointed out in a piece.
Take comedian Patton Oswalt. He can’t exactly tour the clubs anymore (since gatherings of more than 1.7 people are banned), so in a recent post on Twitter, he just stood on his house’s porch and delivered some old-school stand up — to two passersby on a sidewalk.
“All right, folks, thanks for staying in tonight. Uh, hope you guys are, uh, isolating and, uh, securing in place. Huh huh huh, this COVID-19, I tell ya’. You know, I don’t know the — I didn’t see COVIDS one through 18, so I don’t really know, uh, what this is all about. But you know, hey, great time to catch up on your, uh, streaming and, uh….”
“Oh, hey!” Oswalt says as the camera pans down to a young girl on the sidewalk. “How you doing there? How you doing today?”
She promptly says, “You suck,” and walks off. Hecklers, amirite?
Watching the videos from Italy 🇮🇹 inspired me. Entertainers must offer hope & humor to their neighbors in this time of quarantine. pic.twitter.com/ohrsBtuqzu

Then was Neil Diamond performing his own coronavirus edition of his 1969 classic “Sweet Caroline.” At the chorus, instead of singing “hands, touching hands, reaching out, touching me, touching you,” he offers a new coronavirus version: “hands, washing hands, reaching out, don’t touch me, I won’t touch you.”
Stay safe out there! “Hands… washing hands..” 🎶 pic.twitter.com/QaRB1qZshp
