AceShowbiz – Kim Kardashian, Shaquille O’Neal and many more have given some lucky students an online class to remember. Ever since coronavirus forced people to practice social distancing, many schools and universities across the country turned to the virtual world to continue with teachings, prompting a number of other celebrities to make surprise appearances.
Kim has joined a Georgetown University’s virtual class, and shared the experience on Instagram Story. “It was so great to speak to Dr. Marc Howard as he teaches his course,” she wrote over a screencapture of the class. “Some of the men on the chat were previously incarcerated for decades like Momolu Stewart who recently was released from prison.”
The “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” star went on to promote her upcoming 2-hour documentary, “The Justice Project”, which will be released on Sunday, April 5, on Oxygen.
Shaq, on the other hand, chose to crash a first grade class in late March. His surprise pop-in didn’t only delight the children, but also came as a shock to the parents who quickly grabbed their phones to document the rare sight. One person even exclaimed, “How did this happened?”
Meanwhile, Bachelor Nation host Chris Harrison granted TikTok user Jessica Saucedo’s request for him to speak in her Ethics of Love and Marriage virtual class at Loyola Marymount University. Seemingly happy with the other students’ reaction to his appearance, he jokingly told them it was “the most dramatic class yet.”
Another celebrity crashing online class was former NFL quarterback Peyton Manning. Surprising University of Tennessee, Knoxville students, he joined a virtual class to talk about coronavirus and how to not lose hope in the midst of this difficult time.
While most celebrities dropping into the online classes, Matthew McConaughey chose to surprise faculty members. Professor Robert Quigley from the University of Texas at Austin School of Journalism tweeted, along with a screenshot of the “White Boy Rick” actor, “Special guest in our Zoom faculty chat.” Expressing his disbelief, he further noted, “This is surreal.”
