Cash-strapped Tori Spelling slammed by fans after demanding $95 for video chat

TORI Spelling has been criticized by fans after charging $95 for online meet and greets.

The 90210 star revealed on social media that she would be doing her first-ever fan meetings, but the price shocked fans who reminded her that many were cash-strapped due to the coronavirus pandemic.

"Can’t wait to do my first ever virtual meet and greet Thursday, April 9 at 5pm PDT," shared Tori; the actress and her husband are being sued by American Express Bank for failing to pay a credit card bill in January 2016.

"Only 20 spots available so reserve your spot now. Link in my bio xoxo."

The event promised live, individual chats with Tori along with the chance to take virtual pictures and a download of the conversation to watch back at a later date.

But the cost left some fans confused, with one calling it a "bummer" for Tori to be charging during a pandemic.

"I would've done it but it cost $95. Its a bad time for me, since myself and my husband both lost our jobs. but maybe next time. Im a HUGE 90210 fan. Love u tori aka donna martin," shared one fan.

"Damn people are dying, and you still thinking how to gain money from us… what you were and what you became...," commented another.

However, others came to Tori's defence, with one writing: "She doesn't have to stop trying to make money and take care of her family just because someone else can't.

"That's not fair to say about her. She is doing what everyone that do this is doing, their jobs."

The coronavirus pandemic has seen over 10 millions American register as unemployed as the economy hits one of the biggest recessions ever seen.

But although Tori's social media posts left fans upset, one celebrity who cheered fans up was Matthew Perry, who took on his Friends character, Chandler Bing, with his latest social media post about the coronavirus pandemic.

The actor tried to make his followers laugh during these tough times by adding a twist to one of his most iconic quotes from the popular show.

In an orange gradient background, the American-Canadian actor posted: "Could we BE in any more of a pandemic?"

Fans were impressed with the actor and most of them responded how they could "hear" the post in the actor's voice.

Unfortunately, fans will have to wait to see Matthew take on the role again as the Friends reunion had to be postponed for 2021.

The Sun exclusively reported the reunion we've all been waiting for isn’t likely to happen now until 2021 as the outbreak remains a concern and the cast - Jennifer Aniston, Matthew Perry, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc and David Schwimmer – have packed schedules for the rest of the year.

A massive virtual Friends quiz is launching online to raise money for the NHS
