Chrissy Teigen & John Legend Join Fan's Zoom Birthday Bash

Celebrities are opening up on Zoom, interacting with fans in new ways. This time, it's John Legend and Chrissy Teigen making a birthday surprise.

Chrissy Teigen & John Legend Join Fan's Zoom Birthday Bash

Celebrity couple Chrissy Teigen and John Legend gave a fan the gift of a birthday hang out via Zoom chat. It's the latest in a growing trend of coronavirus-induced social distancing leading to random acts of humanization for famous people on social media.

While it can sometimes lead to problems, Zoom's accessibility has truly helped bring people together. Since gaining such ridiculous popularity a few months ago, Zoom has become synonymous with the video chatting concept. Between people doing "happy hours" with friends and co-workers, and things like online birthday celebrations, social distancing has shown the world that it's easier to be social from home than we thought. Beyond that, though, technology is also making other interactions between celebrities and fans happen when they may not have otherwise.

Perhaps in the spirit of doing something we wouldn't do in the course of our normal, pre-COVID 19 lives, Chrissy Teigen and John Legend jumped into a fan's Zoom birthday chat. The fan, "gracie" on Twitter, posted a screenshot of the video call, thanking the celebrity couple for spending time with her. The image was then retweeted by Teigen, triggering strong reactions from fans. Some people expressed elation for gracie's apparent random luck, while others took it as an opportunity to plug their own birthday Zoom chats, publicly posting room IDs and passwords in the retweet's replies. Others still took it as a chance to attack Teigen for her staunch anti-Trump views, accusing her of spending time with fans as a tool to promote her propaganda. That's the internet sometimes.

Celebrity interactions are one of the biggest unexpected outcomes of the coronavirus pandemic. It's interesting, at the very least, that some famous people are taking this opportunity to let the world into their home lives. It's fantastic that others are using it as a way to encourage people to do great things and find success. Chris Hemsworth of Marvel movie fame, is hosting free workouts and fitness advice, for example. Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson is spending every Sunday doing a live Q&A session with fans, opening up about his careers, marriage, lifestyle, and motivations.

John Legend and Chrissy Teigen are adored by millions of people but so it's awesome to see them spending time with those fans. This isn't the first time they've taken to social platforms to share their time with others, though. Teigen especially is no stranger to reaching out online and connecting with people. Hopefully, we'll see more examples of this from other inspirational people going forward.

Star Wars: What Happened To Rex After Clone Wars | Screen Rant

Even though The Clone Wars ended, the same cannot be said for the story of Captain Rex. Here's what happened to him after season 7 concluded.

Star Wars: What Happened To Rex After Clone Wars | Screen Rant

The story of Captain Rex does not end with the series finale of Star Wars: The Clone Wars. Over the show's 12-year run, the leader of the 501st was rarely away from the spotlight. He first appeared in the critically maligned 2008 Clone Wars movie, but became a fan favorite nonetheless. Rex's unique armor and can-do attitude were groundbreaking for the formerly generic clones. As a result, he went on many adventures during the galaxy-wide conflict, but they did not stop there. Even after the Clone Wars ended, Rex kept himself busy well into his retirement years.

Unlike many of his brothers, Rex survives to the end of The Clone Wars' last season. When Darth Sidious calls for Order 66 to begin, Rex hesitates before submitting to his programming. Eliminating his Jedi general and close friend Ahsoka Tano is his new mission, which he struggles to do. Luckily for both of them, she subdues him and removes his inhibitor chip, granting him free will once again. They escape the Venator-class Star Destroyer full of clones that they were on, with no help from a fleeing Darth Maul. They then commandeer a Y-wing bomber and land on a nearby, unnamed moon, preparing for their uncertain future. Both Rex and Ahsoka fake their deaths, living separate lives of secrecy from then on.

The last viewers see of Rex in The Clone Wars is his worn face after burying his fellow clones. While this is a prequel era, it is not the end of him. The follow-up series, Star Wars Rebels, provides a lot of insight into what he was doing in the age of the Empire after Order 66. Rex set up a new home on Seelos, meeting up with Wolffe and Gregor, the former clone commander and captain respectively. They lived a life of solitude aboard their AT-TE, hunting the local joopa population for food. Sometime later, Ezra Bridger, Kanan Jarrus, and the rest of the Ghost crew found the clones and recruited them into the Rebellion.

After Wolffe alerted the Empire of their visitors, they were thrown on the frontlines once again. The clones and the Rebels successfully fought back against an AT-AT walker, leading them to join the cause. This decision led Rex right back to Ahsoka, who was operating with the group under the codename Fulcrum. He later accompanied the Ghost crew on a handful of missions, while also joining the Phoenix Cell and the Massassi Group. One of Rex's highest-profile missions with them came during the Battle of Endor, as a part of Han Solo's strike team. They successfully disabled the Second Death Star's shield generator, leading to its destruction.

Rex takes a lot of pride in his clone heritage and fighting in the Grand Army of the Republic. They were his golden years, and his tenure during the Clone Wars was better than most. However, the importance of his time as a key operative in the Rebel Alliance cannot be understated. He wasn't bred for someone else's war and held to his post by a brain implant this time around. He chose to play a major role in toppling a tyrannical Empire, all by his own volition. The Clone Wars showcases Rex's heyday, but his life after the show ended is just as worthy of discussion.
