Panic buying is not cool, whether you’re a regular person or a mother of an international singer-songwriter.

Australian rapper Iggy Azalea took to Twitter recently and called out her own mother after the latter went on a shopping spree for canned fish and toilet paper.

After the World Health Organization officially announced the recent Coronavirus as a global pandemic, many responded to this crisis by panic buying food items, alcohol, and yes, toilet paper.

News (and consequently, memes) have been spreading all over the Internet about how toilet paper is always out of stock in groceries and supermarkets, and Iggy reveals her mom has been a contributor to this hoarding.

The rapper behind the hit song “Fancy” reminds her followers not to panic buy during this difficult time: “Looking out for one another’s health includes making sure we all have access to the items we need instead of pointlessly hoarding them all in your garage.”

You go, girl.
