Pharrell Gets Backlash For Telling Fans To Donate For COVID-19, Later Apologizes
On March 24, Pharrell tweeted a link to a GoFundMe with the caption,
“Hospitals are running low on masks, gowns, and other critical items. We need to replenish their supplies. Take action, make a donation, and ask others to join the fight. We’re in this together. Let’s protect the responders on the frontlines.”
Interestingly enough, fans weren’t happy with the millionaire producer encouraging them to donate funds.

He later responded to one critic’s tweet and said he’s already donated, but just wanted to spread the word.
“So sorry if i wasn’t clear. I of course donated but wanted to make sure my followers had a way to get involved if they needed too”
