Met Ball Now “Med Ball” as Amy Schumer Joins Roster of COVID Positive Celeb Guests, Had to Cancel LA Show


Amy Schumer joins the list of celeb guests from Anna Wintour’s Met Ball who now have COVID. Jon Batiste was the first celebrity to admit he got sick at last week’s super spreader.

Schumer is brave enough to post videos from her sick bed. She says she’s watching “Inventing Anna” day and night, and has what she calls an “Elizabeth Holmes” voice, alluding to the Theranos scandal.

Schumer was supposed to perform last night at the Netflix is a Joke Festival in Los Angeles, but had to cancel at the last minute.

Who else of the Met Ball guests are sick? If you’ve heard of others, email me at showbiz411@gmail.com.

This wave follows the one from the White House Correspondents Dinner and the Inner Circle dinner last Saturday. Our own New York Governor, Kathy Hochul, is positive now, too.

The NYC COVID rate has risen steadily all month. Wintour and the Met knew it, but ignored it.
