"For most certainly Black entertainers, Black celebrities we don't really... for all of the Oprahs and the people who have just a lot a lot a lot a lot of money -- most of us are one or two checks away from not having money to pay for all of our things, you know what I mean?"

She added that some celebrities live beyond their means and are paying for everything on credit.

"So this stoppage of work and money is impacting marginalized celebrities the most. You know like all those influencers you see who take all the trips, they're in Dubai one week and they're in London in the next week in Paris next week and they seem to be everywhere. They may not have a lot of liquid income. And you can't charge your rent. You have to pay your rent. So if you don't have the opportunity to do all the things you need to do to be the influencer, your money's funny. And if your money is funny, you don't have much of anything."

Georgia, Florida and nearly 2 dozen other states have reopened or are opening and lifting restrictions so their residents can go back to work.
