‘Hot Doctor’ Mikhail Varshavski is being called out by his millions of followers after pictures of him ignoring his own advice and partying maskless with a load of models on his birthday surfaced online.

Varshavski – who has found Internet fame as Dr. Mike AKA the ‘sexiest doctor alive’ – has shared loads of videos and messages stressing the importance of wearing masks to stop the spread of Covid-19.
But he broke his own rules when it came to his 31st birthday party, for which he flew from New York to Miami to celebrate.
A picture of Varshavski on a boat in Sunset Harbor surrounded by (mostly) Instagram models in bikinis has since been doing the rounds:
Welp, maybe they were all tested? The good doctor hasn’t addressed the criticism yet so who knows. I guess it stands to reason though that a doctor who makes more $$$ off his Instagram page than he does practicing medicine would be spending his birthday on a boat packed with beautiful women. Not one person wearing a mask though? Pretty poor form.
Again though, it’s not really surprising that a guy marketing himself as the sexiest doctor in the world cares more about the benefits of Instagram fame rather than the health of the general public. Despite what he said in this video about the importance of wearing masks:

So yeah, I don’t think this guy should get ‘cancelled’ or ruined over this story, but it’s OK to point out the hypocrisy like we’ve done so much already with politicians and other characters who tell you to live in fear while they seemingly carry on living their lives normally.

Here are some the criticisms being levelled at him on social media (via MailOnline):
I know it’s your life and you can do what you want, but you have chosen to be a public figure. And because of that, and your profession, you are held to a higher standard,’ one follower, calling themselves Irisheyez wrote on Reddit.
‘You are supposed to be the example. I admired and respected you. Now that is all lost.’
Another, UghDestiny, added: ‘This year was awful and Dr. Mike was a safe place for me. I was actually glad I discovered him before the pandemic, because without him, I would’ve probably lost my mind with crazy conspiracies.
‘I never cared about my health, I never trusted doctors before him, now I don’t know what to believe or do anymore. I was able to bring my family back to reality only with the information and arguments he has provided in his videos.’
And a third, Anko_Dango wrote: ‘When you become a very large and growing medical influencer, one that a lot of people rely on for medical information in regards to the pandemic, it’s not a good look.
‘Ultimately it’s his life and he’s free to do whatever the hell he wants, but he has to deal with the consequences, and if that means his fans turning on him, so be it.’
He hasn’t responded to MailOnline’s requests for comment yet, so I guess he’s still figuring out how he’s gonna explain this one. Or maybe still nursing a hangover from his epic birthday boat party:
Looks like it was a good one! At least we’ve got a happy doctor looking after us.
