Hey, you can’t knock the hustle, right? Just because there’s a pandemic going on doesn’t mean that people aren’t still trying to get paid.

When you have millions of followers, you can get paid a ton of money to do sponsored social media posts. That’s the way the world works.

Given the fact filming in the entertainment industry and sports have been halted, celebrities have to find other ways to earn money.

For the people listed above, they’ve been able to cash in on Instagram. Again, you can’t hate someone for finding a way to make money during these tough times.

Hopefully, this whole situation is over soon, and we can get back to cameras rolling on sets and sporting events getting underway.

I need to get to a movie theater and sports stadium ASAP!
