Socializing has definitely taken a backseat during quarantine unless it is done virtually. In fact, people are celebrating important milestones through windows and also using them to convey messages to loved ones.
According to Mail Online, 52-year-old actor Josh Brolin who essayed the role of Thanos in ‘Avengers’, took his wife Kathryn and 1-year-old daughter Westlyn to his parents’ house and shared a picture of everyone by the pool. The image has now been deleted from his Instagram handle.
At a time when everyone is self-isolating, this social call received a lot of backlash online. ET Canada quoted him apologizing later by saying,
“My father lives next door to us, and we had a plan to go see them and not be near them and that plan was broken and that’s our responsibility. We were going to pick something up and show [his daughter] the pool because we don’t have a pool and yeah, I think it was irresponsible.”
“You know, it’s hard to be honest sometimes. It’s hard to be honest and say, ‘Maybe I screwed up,’ and I knew that that was in the air, not because of the responses, but because the responses brought me back to my own truth and it’s humbling as hell, man…I’m thankful to be reminded, as it is extremely important to me, and I do care about my fellow man… so thank you, guys.”
Earlier, New Zealand Health Minister David Clark was demoted for breaking lockdown and driving his family to the beach. It is sad to see the privileged violating rules while the poor and homeless suffer the most.
