Zooey Deschanel & Jonathan Scott have been staying home amidst this pandemic. They have been posting online hoping that people don’t freak out and that they stay safe.
Unlike quite a few posts I’ve seen from other celebrities, Zooey and Johnathan have received fairly positive feedback from their posts since they had the foresight to be more considerate with their wording.
They aren’t blind to the fact that many people must continue to work and said that those who are able to stay home should, but they still respect those who can’t.
From Gal Gadot, Jimmy Fallon, Miley Cyrus, Demi Lovato, Justin Bieber, Hailey Baldwin, Tom Hanks, to Kylie Jenner, and the Kardashians, the media has been posting story after story about people’s favorite celebrity icons.
Interestingly, despite many people’s efforts to comfort, ease, or support people online, celebrities have received backlash left and right.
People have been posting memes and satire quite regularly as celebrities have started posting from home.
After seeing the two of them together, quite a few fans responded with surprise. Many people hadn’t seen the updates that they had become an item.
While some focused on the positive message they were posting, I’ve seen countless comments like the ones below with people just finding out that they are dating.
“Ok that means that you are living together ?????” – zary_enriquez (Commenter)
“Are you guys a couple? If so, congrats!” – MMAmusic (Commenter)
I only found out about them dating a while ago myself, so I get where people are coming from.
Many comments were positive. Fans and viewers said they appreciated the kind words and were happy to hear people speaking on such a controversial topic.
Comments like these are all over their social media accounts:
“Good message, I wish I could! I am taking care of the kiddos of emergency room doctors!” – lesleyjeanmarshall (Commenter)
“Thank you for using your platform so well and helping us flatten the curve. The faster everyone abides, the faster we can get back to our normal daily lives. ?” – jamiio23 (Commenter)
Thank you to all the grocery store clerks, truck drivers, medical professionals, restaurant workers, sanitation workers, farmers and all the other people that are working to help our communities stay safe and strong ❤️

After looking up some details about Zooey‘s career, it looks like the last show she worked on was in 2018. So far, it is unclear when she intends to start acting or voice acting. (Especially with what is going on right now)
She recently had a Carpool Karaoke episode where her sister and Johnathan’s brother tagged along for a hilarious ride. Full of music and comedic moments, that is definitely something to check out.
All in all, I’m glad to see Zooey and Jonathan sending positive messages to their fans and hope we get to see more of them soon!
