For the last nearly two years we’ve seen example after example of hypocrisy from the “rules for thee but not for me” crowd, which includes celebrities and many politicians. According to the Hollywood Reporter, celebs attending the upcoming Academy Awards show won’t have to show proof of vaccination even though it’s a requirement for indoor events and dining everywhere else in the Los Angeles area:
Oscars: COVID-19 Vaccination Will Not Be Required for In-Person Attendees (Exclusive) https://t.co/txqnSxqJGM

Mayor Garcetti can ensure that the event is completely safe by asking all the celebs to hold their breath the whole time.
From The Hollywood Reporter:
The Oscars will be back at the Dolby Theatre on March 27, less than a year after the pandemic forced Hollywood’s biggest night to be held as a scaled-down affair at Los Angeles’ Union Station with strict COVID testing requirements. In the time since, safe and free COVID vaccines have become widely available and mandated for everything from dining out to attending sporting events.
But, The Hollywood Reporter has learned, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences is planning not to mandate proof of vaccination (with or without a booster) in order to attend this year’s ceremony. Instead, it intends to require a negative PCR test or a negative rapid antigen test on the day of the event.
For some reason people are guessing that “the help” will be required to be vaxxed and masked:
Don't forget to mask up the Servants while the elitists run wild maskless.
You can't lose all your wuhan virus privilege & the masses must be reminded to bow to idols supremacy.

I bet it will be for “the help.”

It’ll definitely be required for the help.

We already know that the rules don’t apply to the elite.
Why do you need to be vaccinated to sit in a truck by yourself all day, but not to sit in a room full of people laughing and cheering for hours? Who's more likely to spread an airborne pathogen? What's the scientific rationale there?
Just kidding. None of this is about science. https://t.co/aW3XSbhyBB

In Washington DC, @MurielBowser shut down a veteran-owned small business because they weren't forcing customers to show proof of vaccination.
But a bunch of elites can gather to pat each other on the back without following the rules they've demanded everyone else abide by. https://t.co/3dlhasDtfV

We truly live in two Americas. One for the left and elites, another for everyone else. https://t.co/tKgorpJMLQ

So a 12 year old has to show a vax card to go most places in LA, but celebs are exempt. Ok, got it.
Just trying to keep track of all

All while kids in schools and people serving maskless celebs are required to mask up.
When people say that Hollywood is an assortment of out of touch ivory tower elites who constantly moralize to us plebeians, this is what they mean. https://t.co/7YaFwUFVgb

There's a large group of unvaccinated Hollywood celebrities who made PSA videos about how being vaccinated is a sacred civic responsibility while secretly not taking it themselves? https://t.co/oiN0NDbhSA
