Lauren Goodger has been criticised by NHS workers for defying government orders to stay home and using the coronavirus to make a 'fashion statement' amid the ongoing pandemic.
The former TOWIE star, 33, received backlash from health service employees after she shared a photo of herself wearing a face mask while out and about in Buckhurst Hill, Essex earlier this week.
The snap drew swift condemnation from some social media users who said that Lauren was being 'selfish' for going outside when the government have advised people to stay indoors and practice social distancing.
One Instagram user wrote: 'You are not meant to be out. So so selfish. Did you seriously not think before posting this? I work for the NHS. People are dying. Please delete this and please stay indoors.'
Lauren responded by saying she was on her way to work at her beauty salon and would continue to do so until the government announces salons must be closed.
She fired back: 'I am working please shut up. Until the government and NHS say all salons must close, until then I am working! [sic]'
Another user waded into the argument and said: 'Telling someone who is working for the NHS to shut up.
Lovely. Salons are not needed right now and even if you do work, you don't need to advertise you out and about all over Insta!'
