Evangeline Lilly apologizes for her comments about the coronavirus: “I Was insensitive”


A few days ago, and already in full crisis of the coronavirus, the actress Evangeline Lilly was the protagonist of some comments quite controversial. In these, the actress said that she was not going to respect the confinement nor the safety distance recommended by the virus. According to her, I preferred putting forward the freedom of that life, something that, understandably, caused quite a stir, and turned against them. However, the actress has posted on Instagram a photo apologizing for his attitude.

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 guidelines changed and, despite my intense trepidation over the socio-economic 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 have 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. THE

Just from the beginning we see has already changed his approach: “I write from my home where I have been estranged from the 18 of march”. Later he adds: “I want to offer my sincere apology for the insensitivity I showed in my previous posting in the face of suffering and fear is very real that has invaded the world through COVID19.” by making a special emphasis on the victims and the people that are being affected, as well as the important work of the health.

He also acknowledges being scared by the situation but says that “at the same time, I’m very encouraged by the beauty and humanity that I see so many people manifest toward one another in this important time. When I was dealing with my own fears about social distancing, a wise person and kind I said ‘do it for love, not by fear’ and it helped me to realize my place in all this.” Despite his previous comments and that were certainly not responsible, the attitude of the actress has changed as we can see, and it is also something that you should recognize.
