John Legend slammed for urging Americans to mask up before attending Obama’s party maskless
Pop singer John Legend is receiving criticism for appearing at former President Barack Obama’s birthday party maskless days after lecturing Americans to wear a mask, even if vaccinated.
“Being unvaccinated and/or unmasked at a large indoor gathering is like literally begging to get COVID. Please don’t do that to yourself, your family or your neighbors,” Legend tweeted last week.

Legend’s tweet came days before he attended Obama’s lavish birthday bash in Martha’s Vineyard with his wife, disgraced former model Chrissy Teigen. The party which boasted hundreds of high-profile guests came after the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommended that fully vaccinated people continue to wear masks in response to the spread of the deadly Delta variant of the coronavirus.

“Hope you enjoyed that @BarackObama super spreader event that was INSIDE tents,” replied one Twitter user.
“You have No right to Preach to Us about masks, when you attend Obamas Birthday party MASKLESS! #HIPPROCRATE#StopDoubleStandards,” replied another.
“Literally every time,” said Caleb Hull, along with screenshot images of Legend’s tweet next to a headline showing Legend frolicking maskless at Obama’s party.
“Says the wanker that went to Obama’s birthday party without a mask and no social distancing. I’m glad I never spent a single dime on purchasing your music,” said another Twitter user.
“unmasked at a party with 700 people. Just hushhhhhhh,” said someone else.

Legend reportedly sang “Happy Birthday” to the former president. He attended with his wife, Chrissy Teigen, who was recently exposed for years of cyber-bullying others. Teigen allegedly told model Courtney Stodden to kill herself when Stodden was a minor.
