Many celebrities have turned to social media to connect with one another and their fans while self-quarantining and practicing social distancing.
Television shows and concerts have moved into virtual environments while new forms of entertainment such as Instagram-broadcast battles have emerged in the interim until the coronavirus outbreak passes and the world is able to resume normal life again.
In one of the Internet’s more unexpected moments, Migos member Offset and silver screen star Reese Witherspoon had the Twitterverse in shambles after they hopped on Instagram Live together Monday night (April 6). Internet sleuths have since deduced that 'Set and Witherspoon are among the slate of celebrities with shows on Quibi, which spurred the interaction. The Migos member hosts his own car show, Skrrt With Offset, while Witherspoon’s show, Fierce Queens, launched on Monday (April 6).
During the livestream, Offset and Witherspoon chopped it up about their respective shows on the video-sharing platform. At one point, they even touched on ‘Set’s acting debut on NCIS: Los Angeles. In another turn of the conversation, the two bonded over their mutual appreciation for old school cars. At one point, Witherspoon also shared that her father collected 1975 Cadillac El Dorados, which grabbed the rapper’s attention. Intrigued, Set mentioned that he was interested in possibly buying one off his hands. He then asked for Witherspoon to put them in touch so the two men can talk business. “I’mma hook you up with my dad,” Witherspoon assured him.
The Twitterverse was simultaneously bemused and dying from laughter over the unlikely conversation.
“Offset was on live with Reese Witherspoon, this pandemic showing us the unimaginable lol,” one user reacted on Twitter.
“Reese Witherspoon and Offset going live is one of those things you didn’t know you needed, yet, here we are!” a second commented.
“Reese Witherspoon and Offset need to have weekly conversations on IG live until this all is over,” a third joked.
