In a related development, Jenna Ortega was recently described as “highly irresponsible” and “disrespectful” when she revealed that she filmed her viral “Wednesday dance” scene while infected with COVID-19.
The actress told NME that she had the Coronavirus symptoms on the day she filmed the viral scene.
She recalled: “Yeah, I woke up and – it’s weird, I never get sick and when I do it’s not very bad – I had the body aches, my throat was itching and was scratching the walls of my esophagus. They were giving me medicine between takes because we were waiting on the positive result.”
