Tori Spelling’s Husband Dean McDermott Comes To Her Defense After Backlash Over $95 Virtual Meet and Greet
Tori Spelling is getting dragged once again. The Beverly Hills, 90210 star went on her Instagram account on Monday to announce a special virtual meet and greet with her fans.
“Can’t wait to do my first ever virtual meet and greet Thursday, April 9 at 5pm PDT. Only 20 spots available so reserve your spot now. Link in my bio xoxo.”
When fans clicked on the link, they discovered she was charging $95 for this virtual meet and greet.
This obviously rubbed some fans the wrong way…
Of course it’s $95 because during a Pandemic we all have that to spare what a bummer. Damn people are dying, and you still thinking how to gain money from us… what you were and what you became.
And those were the NICE comments! Not long after the hate rained down on her, her husband Dean McDermott came to her defense.
He posted a video to Instagram and went in hard on the haters…
I’m really disappointed because she’s catching flak and being dragged for doing a live meet and greet. People are upset that, given the current situation we’re in in the lockdown and the coronavirus, that she’s ‘charging’ people money to do a meet and greet.
What is wrong with that? What is wrong with providing for your family at this time? All the studios, everything is shut down. She has no way to work like everybody else. She has no job to go to. So, why can she not work from home and do a live meet and greet with fans and give them some light and love and have some fun? There are numerous celebrities out there that post stuff and influencers, and they’re out there making money every single day. But no, let’s drag Tori Spelling. Let’s give her a hard time.
And you know, he’s not wrong. Have you seen how many celebrities are on Cameo right now? Hundreds of celebrities are charging people insane amounts of money just for a 15-30 second video clip. At least in Spelling’s case, she was actually interacting with her fans.
I don’t know. I think people need to chill. If you don’t want to pay $95 to meet Tori Spelling, then don’t. I wouldn’t pay two quarters to meet Spelling, but I’m not gonna knock the people who would, and I’m also not going to hate on her for trying to get that cash.
According to a super quick Google search, Spelling is *only* worth $500,000, so it’s not like she’s filthy rich like some of these other celebs.
If Bill Gates went on Instagram and tried to do the same thing, then yeah, that might be a problem.
