Deadpool star Ryan Reynolds recently revealed his charitable donations in response to the coronavirus pandemic. And in typical Merc with a Mouth fashion, Reynolds did so while trolling his fellow actor and good friend Hugh Jackman.
On Monday, Reynolds took to social media to share that he and his wife, Blake Lively, had donated $1 million to split between non-profit organizations Feeding America and Food Banks Canada. In the same post, Reynolds asked his followers to take care of their health and “leave room for joy” as they stay home to help stop the spread of the virus. Reynolds also encouraged people to “call someone who’s isolated and might need connection” during this crucial time.
To add levity to his post, Reynolds ended it with a fake phone number of Jackman, seemingly implying that the Wolverine star is one of those who are isolated and needs connection.
Jackman has yet to react to Reynolds’ trolling, but one of his most recent social media posts shows him encouraging his followers to wash their hands properly in this time of health crisis.
Reynolds and Jackman appeared together in the 2009 film X-Men Origins: Wolverine, and have remained friends since then. Earlier this month, Reynolds also took to social media to take another dig at Jackman on the three-year anniversary of the 2017 movie Logan.
In addition to Reynolds and Lively, other celebrities who have donated to coronavirus relief include Jennifer Garner, Amy Adams, Justin Timberlake, Jimmy Fallon, Vanessa Hudgens, Dierks Bentley, Donatella Versace, Justin Timberlake, Brad Paisley, and Ciara, among many others.
