Chock interviewed by Business Insider about celebrities throwing parties despite the pandemic

Makana Chock, associate professor of communications,, was interviewed by Business Insider for the article, “Celebrities are shamelessly throwing parties in the pandemic—and setting a dangerous example for the rest of us.”
