Gal Gadot's celebrity filled "Imagine" cover video spawned outrage from online social media users.

Larry the Cable Guy is one of them.

Calling the celebrities "clueless," Larry lamented that rich celebrities singing about a world with no possessions while Americans are worried about the economy is tone deaf.

Furthermore, Larry also noted that California has an extremely high homeless population and that as these celebrities sing "Imagine" in their mansions, homeless people are living on the street at risk for COVID-19.

High profile celebrities have been slamming President Trump's response to the pandemic.

However, early signs indicate that Trump's decisive action, such as protecting American borders, may end up saving countless American lives.

Fox News has more on the viral video and Larry the Cable Guy's stinging critique:

Larry the Cable Guy has slammed a number of Hollywood stars who he believes are out of touch with the current homeless situation in Los Angeles, Calif., amid the coronavirus pandemic.

"Wonder Woman" actress Gal Gadot and other celebrities, including Kristen Wiig, James Marsden and Natalie Portman, posted a cover of John Lennon’s famous song “Imagine” on social media in an effort to inspire hope.

“We’re all in this together,” Gadot captioned the video. She said she recorded it on Day 6 of her home quarantine.

But the comedian from Nebraska has called them out on Twitter for being "clueless" in their efforts to ease the public's concerns over the pandemic.

"Here’s a message from people with a lot of possessions that can take a year off of work and not flinch telling everyone outa work to imagine a world with no possessions while people are living in the street a half mile away from ‘em," Larry the Cable Guy, whose real name is Daniel Whitney, tweeted Thursday.

"This really pisses me off! Most of us don't have any savings. Paycheck to paycheck," one of the funny man's followers agreed.

The comedian responded, "They're clueless."

"The GREATEST lesson we're all going to learn, is how VERY LITTLE these people matter in our lives. Their red carpets. Their paid endorsements. Their fashions. Their films...," wrote another Twitter user.

"They are tone-deaf on so many levels," another person responded to the comedian.

Larry the Cable Guy wasn't the first to be upset at the viral music video. 

Thousands of users took to social media to slam tone-deaf Hollywood elites singing about imagining a world with no possessions when they're some of the richest people on earth.

See some of the responses below:

Gal Gadot created the music video in hopes of inspiring people while multiple states are on lock-down and people across the nation are staying at home.

However, the choice of song and message from wealthy Hollywood elites did not sit well with the majority of viewers.

The New York Post has more on the outrage sparked by the "out of touch" video:

But her musical morale boost rang hollow with the social media masses, who labeled the video “cringe” and “out of touch.”

“I’ve always hated this song,” scoffed one Twitter critic. “ ’Imagine no possessions’ sung by some of the wealthiest people in the world.”

“Imagine all the people … Eating all the riiiich,” snarked another.

Others wondered why the deep-pocketed diva couldn’t just send cash to help those suffering from the COVID-19 crisis, which has prompted nationwide business closures, and thousands of restaurant worker layoffs in New York City alone.

“BOO, donate if you really care abt the world rn,” wrote one Instagram financial-aid expert.

Another mocked: “Honey, look at all the rich people singing Imagine. Everything will be alright now, even though we both lost our jobs. This was so much better than money and not cringy at all.”

When it comes to lifting spirits amid sickness, Gadot’s celebrity cover doesn’t hold a candle to these impromptu Italian vocalists, who serenaded their fellow quarantiners from their balconies.

The song also rang hollow after reports surfaced that while many Americans cannot get tested for COVID-19 due to shortages, Hollywood elites are able to get tested seemingly whenever they want.

California is known to have one of the worst homelessness rates in the country.

Most Hollywood elites live mere miles from thousands of homeless people living on the streets of Los Angeles.
