RHOC’s Braunwyn Windham-Burke insists she’s NOT cashing in on pandemic and just helping out businesses after fans attack – The Sun

Real Housewives of Orange County star Braunwyn Windham-Burke has insisted she is not cashing in on the coronavirus pandemic after being accused of "using her platform the wrong way".

Braunwyn took to Instagram Stories on Sunday to share links to several brands including Gold Sheep and Swim Spot who sell masks and gloves.

"If you can prevent you getting sick but also spreading it, do it," she said.

But later she revealed that she had become involved in a "very unpleasant Instagram exchange" after "someone came after me saying I wasn't using my platform the right way and I was trying to sell things".

Speaking to camera, she said: "I thought, maybe people don't know, so I am not trying to sell anything right now, I am not affiliated with anyone I am promoting, they are just companies doing the right thing and putting out there ways that people can help, big or small, to help out.

"I am just one person, trying to say, 'hey I have 185000 followers and if you want to listen to me babble great, as I will keep on doing it'."

Braunwyn's message came after it was revealed more than 10,000 people have died in the US due to the virus, and Saturday Night Live star Michael Che revealed on Monday that his grandmother had died from coronavirus on Sunday.

The “hurt and angry” comedian shared the news with an “open letter” on his social media account.

"Last night my grandmother passed away from the coronavirus," he wrote.

“I’m doing ok, considering. I’m obviously very hurt and angry that she had to go through all that pain alone.

“But I’m also happy that she’s not in pain anymore. And I also feel guilty for feeling happy. Basically the whole gamut of complex feelings everybody else has losing someone very close and special. I’m not unique. But it’s still scary."
