Billionaire David Geffen Goes Private On Instagram After “Tone-Deaf” Post

Billionaire businessman and philanthropist David Geffen has gone private after posting his yacht while self-isolating.

The 77-year-old is self-isolating in the Grenadines, which are islands in the Caribbean, on his multi-million dollar yacht.

Geffen posted a picture of his yacht against a beautiful sunset and captioned it “ “Sunset last night… isolated in the Grenadines avoiding the virus. I’m hoping everybody is staying safe.”

He quickly faced a internet backlash, criticizing Geffen for displaying his wealth and privilege while millions of people struggle with unemployment and healthcare workers are fighting to protect themselves while saving lives of others.
