Smooth sailing for David Geffen amid coronavirus, Twitter irate

People are dying, hospitals are overrun, supplies are short and the world is in crisis.

But don’t worry about David Geffen. He’s fine.

The Brooklyn-born billionaire posted photos on Instagram on Saturday showing how he is social distancing — on his huge, state-of-the-art yacht.

“Sunset last night … isolated in the Grenadines avoiding the virus,” Geffen captioned a picturesque pic, one of three in the post. “I’m hoping everybody is staying safe.”

Many Twitter users, presumably safe, seethed at Geffen, 77.

“Validation is a human need I guess, but I still find it fascinating—and quite sad actually—that David Geffen’s presumably high-end drone, luxury yacht and priceless sunsets aren’t enough for him until he can show it off on a FREE Instagram,” Twitter user “commentarian” posted.

Geffen’s Instagram account was made private Saturday, allowing only followers to see his pictures, a change presumably due to the social-media firestorm.

Geffen co-founded Asylum records in the 1970s and then launched Geffen Records in 1980. In 1994, he co-founded the DreamWorks SKG studio with Steven Spielberg and Jeffrey Katzenberg. Geffen left the studio in 2008.

To be fair to the moneybags magnate, he has been given lots of money to charity over the years, being particularly active in the fight against AIDS.

But on Saturday, he really missed the boat.
