Vanessa told her followers, "I'm sorry, but like it's a virus. I get it. I respect it."

"But at the same time, even if everybody gets it, like, yeah, people are gonna die, which is terrible but inevitable."

"I don't know. Maybe I shouldn't be doing this right now."

The apology

Following backlash, Vanessa has released a public apology on Twitter.

She said, 'I'm so sorry for the way I have offended anyone and everyone who has seen the clip from my Instagram live yesterday.'

'I realize my words were insensitive and not at all appropriate for the situation our country and the world are in right now.'

Vanessa went on, 'This has been a huge wake up call about the significance my words have, now more than ever.'

The actress also took to Instagram Stories, "I realised today that some of my comments are being taken out of context."

She went on, "Um, It's a crazy time. It's a crazy, crazy time."

"And I am at home in lockdown and that's what I hope you guys are doing, too."

"In full quarantine and staying safe and sane. I don't take this situation lightly by any means."
