Evangeline Lilly se disculpa por sus comentarios «arrogantes» sobre el coronavirus

Evangeline Lilly, quien dio vida a Hope Van Dyne en el UCM, publicó un mensaje de disculpas tras una publicación que realizó en su cuenta de Instagram en donde dejó entrever que no estaba cumpliendo la cuarentena que muchos estamos atravesando a causa del Covid-19.

«Quiero ofrecer mis más sinceras disculpas por la insensibilidad que mostré en mi publicación anterior ante el sufrimiento y el miedo muy reales que se apoderó del mundo a través de COVID19.

escribió la actriz a sus seguidores sosteniendo que su intención original fue transmitir calma.

La actriz también remarcó además que ha estado llevando a cabo las medidas de distanciamiento social junto a su familia y que está pendiente de todo lo que sucede alrededor del mundo.

«Me duele la pérdida de vidas en curso y las decisiones imposibles que los trabajadores médicos de todo el mundo deben tomar al tratar a los afectados. Estoy preocupado por nuestras comunidades, pequeñas empresas y familias que viven de un sueldo a otro, y estoy tratando de seguir recomendaciones responsables sobre cómo ayudar.

Comentó la actriz.

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
