Dr. Anthony Fauci participated in a Zoom call with dozens of A-List celebrities at the beginning of the pandemic and it was just revealed that Kim Kardashian organized the call.
Fauci told CNN that the stars “wanted to know about masks and social distancing and whether it was safe to eat take-out food.”
Among the stars on the call were Kim, Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis, Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom, Gwyneth Paltrow and Brad Falchuk, 2 Chainz, and more.
“It was a whole bunch of movie stars and some sports figures and they wanted to know about what they could do to stay safe, about wearing masks and avoiding crowds,” Fauci said. “I was impressed by the questions they asked, by their level of sophistication.”
The call happened at the end of April and Fauci says he agreed to participate because these people all have large platforms that they can use to spread information to fans.
“Each of them has enormous numbers of followers on their social media accounts. I could say to them, for example, it’s important to wear a mask, and they get on their accounts and say ‘wear a mask’ and it goes out to an additional couple of million people,” he said.
CNN sources says that Kim reached out to organize the call when Surgeon General Dr. Jerome Adams said that he wanted Kylie Jenner to help people understand that the virus is serious.

Fauci said that Mila Kunis asked him about getting take-out food.
“I told her I feel badly about restaurants losing business, and I feel it’s almost a neighborly obligation to keep neighborhood restaurants afloat, so even though I can cook at home, several nights a week I go out for take-out purely to support those places,” Fauci said.
Mila also asked if he was comfortable eating out of a take-out container, which he said he sometimes would do. He said, “I told her the one thing she can do instead of worrying is wash her hands.”
