Jennifer Aniston, Reese Witherspoon and More Celebs Setting a Good Example by Wearing Masks
With most states requiring masks at least in crowded spots where social distancing isn't possible, these stars are reminding their followers to mask up amid the coronavirus pandemic
Aniston posted a selfie in her mask on Instagram with a caption encouraging everyone to do the same. "It really shouldn't be a debate," the actress wrote.
"I understand masks are inconvenient and uncomfortable," the Morning Show actress began, "But don’t you feel that it’s worse that businesses are shutting down... jobs are being lost... health care workers are hitting absolute exhaustion. And so many lives have been taken by this virus because we aren’t doing enough."
Aniston continued, "I really do believe in the basic goodness of people so I know we can all do this 🥰 BUT still, there are many people in our country refusing to take the necessary steps to flatten the curve, and keep each other safe. People seem worried about their 'rights being taken away' by being asked to wear a mask. This simple and effective recommendation is being politicized at the expense of peoples’ lives. And it really shouldn’t be a debate 🙏🏼"
She concluded by adding, "If you care about human life, please... just #wearadamnmask 😷 and encourage those around you to do the same ❤️"
