Absolute icon Courtney Love has hopped onto Instagram to inform her followers that she and other celebrities have allegedly had access to at-home COVID testing kits for over six months, which have apparently been completely unavailable to the general public.
The ‘information’ was partnered with a pic of a negative test, which Love had apparently taken herself at home with one of these kits.
“I’m posting my Covid test (I’m Covid negative, zero antibodies) because I’ve never been great at this 1 percenter shit,” she wrote.
“I have and many of my wealthy friends have had access to Covid test kits, for over 6 months. Every time I give people without the same money or access as me a box of 20 I get furious that these are not available at every Tesco and at every 7/11 in both of my countries (and globally too) for 5 bucks or even 20.”
“With this new strain of Covid-19, 70 per cent more ‘catchy’ than the last, we all need this testing capacity more than ever. ALL OF US. ALL OF US!!! If testing, (the above tests for antibodies too) especially the newer tests that can detect COVID antigen in you within 15 minutes, were made available and cheap, people would still make tons of money and this shit would be curbed,” Courtney Love continued in her caption.
“So… maybe I’ll get tossed out of the ‘club’ for posting this. But I’ve never been all that comfortable with my own elitism, especially in the area of public health. You ALL DESERVE TO HAVE A BOX OF TESTS IN YOUR FRIDGE! I keep asking why the fuck you don’t?
“That’s all I have to say on it now. I feel less dirty and my conscience more clear to post this. Though I’m scared to as well.”
Naturally, the comments under the post went absolutely gangbusters, with people claiming that they had no idea that this was a thing before Love made them aware.
One user wrote: “Wow this is really deep I had no idea that there was at home Covid tests. You are right it should be available to all. Thank you for being honest and bringing this to everyone’s attention.
Love, however, was unclear as to where all the celebs are apparently getting their box of 20 at-home kits, but if this is true, it would explain how the Kardashians are able to do rapid tests to host their parties…
