Larry the Cable Guy is known for making millions laugh through his TV shows and stand up specials. But recently, the comedian has shown a more serious side. He made his disapproval known regarding the celebrities that recently collaborated to make a musical cover for John Lennon’s “Imagine” amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Actress Gal Gadot (who played Wonder Woman) collaborated with other celebrities, including Kristen Wiig, James Marsden and Natalie Portman to post a cover of the Lennon song on social media in an effort to lighten the mood during the recent outbreak.

“We’re all in this together,” Gadot captioned the video.

But Larry The Cable Guy was quick to call them out on Twitter for being "clueless" in their efforts to somehow make this global crisis better and scolds them for not showing empathy to those that are financially affected due to the outbreak.

Larry tweeted on Thursday, “Here’s a message from people with a lot of possessions that can take a year off of work and not flinch telling everyone outa work to imagine a world with no possessions while people are living in the street a half mile away from ‘em.”

Many of his followers began to rally up and show their support for not the Cable Guy's remarks and also expressed their disgust with the cover.

One follower commented saying, “This really pisses me off! Most of us don't have any savings. Paycheck to paycheck"

The comedian responded, "They're clueless."

Another fan wrote, “The GREATEST lesson we're all going to learn, is how VERY LITTLE these people matter in our lives. Their red carpets. Their paid endorsements. Their fashions. Their films..."

Another wrote, “They are tone-deaf on so many levels.”

Shortly after, Larry the Cable Guy thanked his fans for hearing him out and stressed that doesn’t resentment for the stars involved in the rendition, but also mentioned that it was in ‘bad taste’.

"I appreciate all the awesome tweets today. Sorry I couldn’t respond to all. I have no animosity toward these folks. The song was in bad taste. Marx would be proud of that song. And I’m not imagining no heaven. Jesus gives hope. Government can’t give people a heart change or hope," he wrote in a second tweet.

Another wrote, “Imagine all the people … Eating all the riiiich.”

One user on Instagram wrote, “BOO, donate if you really care abt the world rn.”

And another wrote, “Honey, look at all the rich people singing Imagine. Everything will be alright now, even though we both lost our jobs. This was so much better than money and not cringy at all.”
