Evangeline Lilly got into hot water when she rejected the recommendations to stay isolated and practice social distancing in the midst of the Coronavirus outbreak, COVID-19. The actress insisted that freedom is more important and bragged about taking her offspring to gym camp and that her life was "business as usual."
Lilly suggested that "freedom,quot; is more important than her life and that of everyone around her, apparently even that of her sick father.
He even seemed to encourage others not to practice social distancing.
However, after many days of receiving criticism from social media users and fans, as well as other celebrities, some even close to her, Evangeline seems to have changed her mind about what it means to play her role in flattening the curve.
As a result, he is now apologizing for his previous and quite shocking comments about the terrifying situation that everyone is currently dealing with.
The long letter he shared on Instagram says: ‘Hello everyone. I am writing to you from my house, where I have been distancing myself socially since March 18, when it was established in the small community in which I currently live. At the time of my publication on March 16, the directives of the authorities were that we do not congregate in any group of more than 250 people and that we wash our hands regularly, which we were doing.
She continues writing that just two days later, when the authorities' orders changed, she also began to do her part, staying isolated with her family and practicing social distancing.
Then the actress apologized, writing in part: offer I want to offer my sincere and sincere apologies for the callousness I showed in my previous post to the true suffering and fear that gripped the world through COVID-19. Grandparents, parents, children, sisters and brothers are dying, the world is coming together to find a way to stop this real threat, and my resulting silence has sent a derogatory, arrogant and cryptic message. "
She made it clear that she never intended to hurt people and was only trying to do what she thought would instill some 'calm'. in & # 39; hysteria & # 39; massive, but actually, now you see that & # 39; I was projecting my own fears into an already fearful and traumatic situation & # 39;

Hi everyone. I am writing to you from my home where I have been socially estranged since March 18, when social distancing was instituted in the small community where I currently live. At the time of my publication on March 16, the authorities' directives here were that we did not congregate in groups of more than 250 people and that we regularly washed our hands, which we were doing. Two days later, those directives changed and, despite my intense concern about the socio-economic and political repercussions of this course of action, PLEASE KNOW I DO MY PART TO FLATTEN THE CURVE, PRACTICING SOCIAL DISTANCES AND STAYING AT HOME WITH MY FAMILY. I want to offer my sincere and sincere apology for the callousness I showed in my previous post to the very real suffering and fear that has invaded the world through COVID19. Grandparents, parents, children, sisters and brothers are dying, the world is coming together to find a way to stop this very real threat, and my resulting silence has sent a derogatory, arrogant and cryptic message. My direct and special apologies to those most affected by this pandemic. I never wanted to hurt you. When I wrote that post 10 days ago, I thought I was instilling calm into hysteria. Now I can see that I was projecting my own fears into an already traumatic and fearful situation. I am hurt by the ongoing loss of life and the impossible decisions that medical workers around the world must make when treating those affected. I am concerned about our communities, small businesses, and families living on one salary to another, and I am trying to follow responsible recommendations on how to help. Like many of you, I fear for the political consequences of this pandemic, and I pray for all of us. At the same time, I am encouraged by the beauty and humanity that I see so many people manifesting toward each other at this vulnerable time. When I was dealing with my own fears about social estrangement, a kind, wise, and kind person said "do it for love, not fear,quot; and helped me realize my place in all of this. Sending love to all of you, even if you can't return it right now. THE
Evangeline also paid tribute to the medical staff we have lost to the virus and to many other doctors and nurses who risk their lives every day to treat people.
