'Coronavirus challenge' toilet-licker says pandemic is a hoax and threatens to cough on Dr Phil
Social media influencer Ava Louise, who went viral after licking a plane toilet seat, threatened the TV therapist in an interview and accused him of being illuminati
Social media influencer Ava Louise went viral after she was seen on camera licking an airplane toilet seat for her "coronavirus challenge."
In an interview with Dr Phil, the TikTok star and self-branded 'skinny legend' headbutted with the TV therapist who had called out Louise for the "unhygienic" challenge. He also slammed her for her decision to attend a spring break in Miami amid the pandemic.
The two did not hold back from arguing with each other with Dr Phil calling Louise "ignorant, spoiled, and entitled" during the online interview. Louise revealed that she had created the challenge just for attention as the coronavirus was getting a lot more attention than she was.
"I was, like, really annoyed that corona was getting more publicity than me. One, I had way dirtier things in my mouth. Two, I bleached [the toilet.] Three, private plane. I flew down on my sugar daddy's plane with my best friend. So really, it wasn't that dirty. I wasn't putting myself or anyone else at risk," she shared.
Asked if she had lied to people, Louise said, "Yeah, I think that's what the media is doing I think with this entire virus." Louise also referred to her TikTok challenge as a "social experiment" and admitted that she had done it all for "clout" given no one is covering her "viral" song.
"It's funny because I created the fake news myself," Louise said and added that she feels as though she "represents" Gen Z.
"I basically took things that your generation and boomers are scared of and I capitalized off of it," she continued.
When Dr Phil asked her whether she is worried about putting others at risk by going outside and helping the spread of the virus, Louise shared that the pandemic is a hoax and added she wouldn't be surprised if Dr Phil is "a part of the Illuminati."
"I just don't think that this is as concerning as possibly as it could be, because I don't have coronavirus. I don't have any symptoms. No one I know has symptoms. I was with thousands of people at Spring Break, I was kissing people, I was acting out, I was being promiscuous ... and nothing happened," she shared.
"You're calling me selfish? But like you're the ones who are concerned because you're concerned about yourselves because you're the ones who could die."
As per the latest CDC data, around 20% of those diagnosed with coronavirus in the US who needed to be hospitalized were aged between 20-44.
"You know what's ridiculously irresponsible and selfish is that your generation only cares about this virus because it affects you. You're blowing this pandemic to crazy proportions, instilling fear in the nation, because you feel like it affects boomers," she continued.
A shocked Dr Phil asked her whether she was just doing this for attention or whether she was really that ignorant. Louise also threatened Dr Phil, saying she would cough on him as he asked, "If you infect one person that loses their life, is it worth it for you to have this attention?"
While raising her voice, Louise said, "I'm hearing you talk and you're like, 'Oh, you're going to kill somebody' like you know what? I'll pull up and I'll cough on you. Like I'm just tired of it! This is ridiculous!" Dr Phil retaliated and said, "What's ridiculous is your spoiled and entitled attitude."
Even though he attempted to explain the danger of the coronavirus and shared facts, Louise said she wasn't buying it.
As per the WHO, so far 465,915 confirmed cases and 21,031 deaths have been reported globally due to the novel coronavirus.
