Real Housewives of New Jersey’s Italian-based star Joe Giudice thinks his native country is blowing the coronavirus crisis way out of proportion.

On Instagram, he said: “I can’t believe that there’s literally nobody out in these streets. Look at this: ghost town. Literally, nobody out because of this stupid coronavirus. It’s, like, ridiculous. People are so scared. Unbelievable. Grow a set of cojones. Jesus. Ridiculous. Alright, I guess I’m gonna be the only one walking around working today.”

He opined that  “more people die from Viagra (heart attacks and drug overdose) everyday” than coronavirus. 

Giudice, who spent 41 months behind bars deported to Italy for tax fraud, said “lock down” is “not for me. Never again!!!!”

Following his stint behind bars and his deportation, he and his wife of Teresa announced their split. 

Italy’s 60 million residents are indeed on lockdown as coronavirus cases continue to rise around the country. There are more than 10,000 cases reported with at least 631 reported deaths.
