Gal Gadot Angers Fans With Her ‘Tone-Deaf’ Coronavirus Video
However, the video ended up merely angering and confusing many of her fans.
The video featured her and a whole load of her famous friends singing lines from John Lenon’s song, Imagine.
Unfortunately, despite the nice idea, the video ended up feeling a bit disingenuous and fans just got angry and frustrated by it.
Some of her friends included the likes of Kristen Wiig, Amy Adams, Natalie Portman, Mark Ruffalo and Jimmy Fallon mostly singing very badly.
People called the video “tone-dead” and “cringe” and I have to say, it’s one of the most cringeworthy things I’ve seen in a while.
I can tell that there was the kernel of a good and sweet idea behind it, yet people really didn’t take to the video.
That said, it’s got over 7 million views on Instagram, so maybe Gadot did something right.

It’s so painful to watch and here are some of the fan reactions to it.
One person wrote: “That Gal Gadot imagine video really is the Cats of quarantine.”
Another said: “Rich celebrities giving us peasants hope.”
A third person added: “In South Korea and Italy celebrities are donating money to help with the #COVID19 crisis, and then there’s Gal Gadot & friends singing ‘imagine’ by John Lennon as if that will help.”
“I, for one, am SHOCKED that Gal Gadot did something tone-deaf,” wrote a fourth person online.
Another person then claimed this was the “worst video on the Internet”, which I think is a tad too far.
“Love Gal Gadot but her vid was cringey,” said another Gadot fan.
