Coronavirus | Le scuse di Evangeline Lilly

Evangeline Lilly si è scusato per aver recentemente rilasciato dichiarazioni sprezzanti sulla pandemia di coronavirus.

L’attrice di Ant-Man e Lost è stata presa di mira la scorsa settimana dopo aver commentato sui social media che, nonostante l’attuale crisi sanitaria, non avrebbe aderito alle richieste di distanziamento sociale e di protezione per rallentare il diffusione del coronavirus.

Le scuse di Evangeline Lilly

Quando un follower ha messo in dubbio la sua indifferenza, Lilly ha risposto riconoscendo che sia lei che suo padre sono immuni compromessi, pur rispettando la sua decisione. “Alcune persone apprezzano la propria vita rispetto alla libertà, alcune persone apprezzano la libertà della propria vita. Facciamo tutti delle scelte”, ha scritto Lilly.

Hello everyone. I am writing you from my home where I have been social distancing since Mar 18th – when social distancing was instituted in the small community where I am currently living. At the time of my Mar 16th post, the directives from the authorities here were that we not congregate in groups of more than 250ppl and that we wash our hands regularly, which we were doing. Two days later, those directives changed and, despite my intense trepidation over the socioeconomic and political repercussions of this course of action, PLEASE KNOW I AM DOING MY PART TO FLATTEN THE CURVE, PRACTICING SOCIAL DISTANCING AND STAYING HOME WITH MY FAMILY. I want to offer my sincere and heartfelt apology for the insensitivity I showed in my previous post to the very real suffering and fear that has gripped the world through COVID19. Grandparents, parents, children, sisters and brothers are dying, the world is rallying to find a way to stop this very real threat, and my ensuing silence has sent a dismissive, arrogant and cryptic message. My direct and special apologies to those most affected by this pandemic. I never meant to hurt you. When I wrote that post 10 days ago, I thought I was infusing calm into the hysteria. I can see now that I was projecting my own fears into an already fearful and traumatic situation. I am grieved by the ongoing loss of life, and the impossible decisions medical workers around the world must make as they treat those affected. I am concerned for our communities – small businesses and families living paycheck-to-paycheck – and I am trying to follow responsible recommendations for how to help. Like many of you, I fear for the political aftermath of this pandemic, and I am praying for us all. At the same time, I am heartened by the beauty and humanity I see so many people demonstrating toward one another in this vulnerable time. When I was grappling with my own fears over social distancing, one kind, wise and gracious person said to me “do it out of love, not fear” and it helped me to realize my place in all of this. Sending love to all of you, even if you can’t return it right now. EL

Venerdì invece Lilly ha fatto le sue scuse sui social media, caratterizzando le sue parole precedenti come “sprezzanti” e “arroganti”. Continua affermando che ora sta a casa con la sua famiglia ed esprime preoccupazione per le comunità colpite dalla pandemia.

Le mie scuse dirette e speciali a quelle zone più colpite da questa pandemia. Non ho mai avuto intenzione di farvi del male. Quando ho scritto quel post 10 giorni fa, pensavo di infondere calma nell’isteria” ha detto. “Ora capisco che stavo proiettando le mie stesse paure per una situazione già spaventosa e traumatica.
