Model Lottie Moss has apologised for posting a video in which she said she is a Covid 'super-spreader', saying she made an 'insensitive joke'. Watch the video in question:
Writing on her Instagram story, the 22-year-old model, who is Kate Moss' sister, she said: "I just wanted to come on here and say I am so sorry for saying I was a superspreader.
"Someone on the live popped up saying those words and I repeated them as a joke because I am not and would never condone spreading a virus as serious as this.
"I was out for dinner with four friends, three of which are in the same household and under the government guidelines - as I live alone - I am allowed a support bubble of four.
"I understand this has upset and offended a lot of people and I wanted to apologise for making such an insensitive joke.
"I am still young and dumb and learning - I sometimes forget that I am a public figure and during these crazy and uncertain times, I should have been more careful with my words."
Moss filmed herself for social media after going out for dinner with her four mates this weekend, taking advantage of London's Tier Two coronavirus restrictions.
When asked if she and her friends were risking spreading the virus by not wearing masks and failing to socially distance, one of Lottie's mates responded: "We're super-spreaders."
Lottie then said: "We're super-spreading Covid."
Well, that clears that up for everyone then.
It should go without saying, at this point, that this is all very silly and you should continue to socially distance and wear masks.
Oh, and don't go about kissing your mates. It's all well and good until someone you love actually catches the virus.
According to The Sun, Lottie is quoted as having said: "Don't let anyone tell you how to act.
"You're young, fun and you can have the best time and do whatever you want to do."
At the time, London was under Tier 2 restrictions, which enables people to meet up with friends or family members indoors - which includes in people's houses or hospitality settings - so long as you live together or have formed up a social bubble together.
If you live alone, you can form a support bubble with any other household of any size. It's worth also remembering that we don't know exactly what Lottie's situation is.
However, London will soon move into Tier 3 - the highest level of restrictions - after cases recently soared in the city.Featured Image Credit: Instagram/Lottie Moss
