Back in April 2020, Kelly made the insensitive remarks in her Instagram comments after fans called her out for flying from New York to California despite quarantine guidelines.
She said: “If it’s dangerous why are the airlines still flying. You think I want to fly? I had to get back how is that elitist??
“People are so judgmental it’s sick!!
“That many die anyway!! They would’ve died this year they were compromised !!”
The RHOC star went on: “Do you know how many people died from the h1n1 the swine flu or SARS??

“It’s 25 per cent get your facts straight you are only hearing numbers not the reality!! It’s God’s way of thinning the herd!!
“If you are vulnerable or compromised stay inside if you don’t protect others by wearings masks and gloves keep your distance and don’t go out if you are ill!! It’s common sense.”
The Bravo star also claimed even if she did get the virus, she wouldn’t die from it.

“When I wrote that it was God’s way of thinning the herd, that’s not what I meant. What I meant was, do these pandemics happen because it’s God way?
“I’m not God. I’m not insensitive. I feel bad for all of the families that have lost loved ones. I do think we should all stay home and protect everybody.
“That’s not what I meant, and I want to apologize to anyone who got offended. Okay? I’m sorry.”
