Others defended Aniston, saying she’s used her platform greater than most to advertise masks sporting and small companies which were impacted because of this.
In the photograph, she is seen holding a easy spherical wood decoration engraved with the phrases “Our first pandemic 2020” on it. “Just because u like a celebrity, doesn’t mean u should not hold them accountable,” one Twitter consumer wrote. “I’m sorry but that’s so insensitive to put an ornament saying ‘pandemic 2020.’ Innocent lives were lost because of this pandemic.

Others commenting on the story admitted that in addition they purchased equally themed ornaments this yr. There have been many displaying piles of bathroom paper, dumpster fires with 2020 on them, and related objects. All of those make mild of the state of affairs we’ve discovered ourselves in and all might be interpreted as offensive given what so many have misplaced, although I can’t think about they have been purchased with malice.
Aniston has been vocal about masks for the reason that pandemic started, writing in June on social media, “I understand masks are inconvenient and uncomfortable. 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.”
Seeing as Aniston shared the picture of her Instagram Stories, it has now expired. She has not responded to the “controversy.”
