SINGER Lana Del Rey has been slammed as "irresponsible" for wearing a mesh coronavirus facemask to a meet-and-greet.
The 36-year-old American, famous for songs including Summertime Sadness, went to the event in a covering that was full of holes.
One fan boggled: "Why is she at an event with a bunch of people wearing a mesh mask??? I love Lana but this is incredibly irresponsible."
Another wrote: "LANA WEARING A MESH MASK TO AN EVENT FOR HER POETRY WTF So irresponsible."
Lana read extracts from her new poetry book, Violet Bent Backwards Over The Grass, and later appeared to pose for selfies with fans who have shared the snaps on social media.
The singer, whose real name is Elizabeth Woolridge Grant, was seen smiling as she turned up in the sparkly mesh mask at the Los Angeles event.
Lana's little sister, Caroline 'Chuck' Grant, defended her online saying she kept six feet – America's version of Britain's two-metre rule – away from other attendees.
She told critics: "She's more than six feet away and she tested negative, so chill."
California – the state LA is in – has been among of the worst-hit in the US, with more than 828,000 confirmed cases of coronavirus and over 16,000 deaths.
