Sunny Hostin, a co-host on “The View,” faced online ridicule when she revealed that she had avoided going into grocery stores since the pandemic and instead had delivery people go in her place.
The hosts were discussing their shopping habits when Hostin made the admission on the show Wednesday.
“I don’t like a supermarket. I haven’t been in a supermarket since COVID — for about three years,” she said.
“That’s when I discovered Instacart. And I give them a big tip because they don’t always pay their people well. And it’s — So, that’s been an issue I think for the company,” Hostin continued. “But man, you can get toiletries, you can get fire logs, you know, those big Bounty towels you don’t want to carry.”
Many on social media thought Hostin, who is a millionaire, was expressing how out of touch many on the left are with regular Americans.
“This is a mental illness, @sunny. Really. Its not healthy. I say this with someone with empathy for your situation,” tweeted Pradheep Shanker of National Review.
“So she’s scared of COVID, but totally willing to let one of the poors risk their life on her behalf. *chef’s kiss*,” tweeted Mark Hemingway.
“So according to her logic… it’s okay to put someone else at risk but not herself? Seems pretty selfish if you ask me,” read another popular tweet.
“I’m so afraid of COVID that I have the butler and maid hosed down with disinfectant twice a day. It’s expensive, but I’m worth it,” joked another user.
Hostin was also among the hosts who angrily blamed racism and sexism for a report that some Democrats were rejecting Vice President Kamala Harris for the Democratic nomination in 2024.
