As many take new measures to ensure that they stay safe during the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, Dr. Phil McGraw has some harsh words for a specific group of people who may be intentionally putting others at risk.

On Monday, the talk show host appeared on "TMZ Live" to discuss the potential harm that people who cheat on their significant others could be inflicting on those around them.

During the live stream, the TV personality said that cheating is a "bigger issue" due to the fact that it is not just having an affair. As doing so at this time could directly affect the health of other people, McGraw said that it was "so selfish and immature" to make that choice.

Continuing, he added that he realizes that no one wants to give up certain behaviors, whether it's "illicit like that" or taking a certain trip that you were looking forward to. However, he added, "right now we've got to be willing to make these kinds of sacrifices."

He then stated that those without empathy are the ones who are pursuing things of this nature in light of the current events and are the ones continuing to "put people at risk."

The full interview can be seen in the tweet below.

McGraw's appearance comes on the heels of his own talk show announcing that they would be forgoing in-studio audiences for a period of time as a result of the ongoing pandemic. Typically, the long-running program takes place in front of approximately 300 people inside of the Los Angeles studio. Dr. Phil's decision followed similar decisions made by other popular television shows in recent months, including "Jeopardy!" and "The Wendy Williams Show."

McGraw is not filming in the studio anymore though. He is following the recommendation to stay at home. According to the Dr. Phil website, he "has shut down taping in studio with guests and is recording alone in his 'man cave,' with guests joining via video conference and his crew working remotely."
