Vanessa Hudgens issued a statement via her social media apologizing for "insensitive" remarks she had made about the deadly coronavirus.

"I'm sorry for the way I have offended anyone and everyone who has seen the clip from my Instagram live yesterday," Hudgens wrote. "I realize my words were insensitive and not at all appropriate for the situation in our country and the world we are in right now. This has been a huge wake-up call about the significance my words have, now more than ever. I'm sending safe wishes to everyone to stay safe and healthy during this crazy time."

Her apology comes after she made the following comments about President Trump says the coronavirus pandemic could last until July or August.

"Um yeah, til July sounds like a bunch of bullsh*t. I'm sorry. But like, it's a virus. I get it like, I respect it, but at the same time like even if everybody gets it, like yeah, people are going to die, which is terrible, but like inevitable?"
