Jennifer Aniston has been quite active on her social media advocating that her fans, followers, and anyone going out wear a mask. The “Friends” star posted updates a few weeks ago, and most recently today making her case for more people to wear masks in light of the Coronavirus.

Her latest post showed a picture of a friend of hers hospitalized after she claims he contracted the virus. (It is still unclear whether he was wearing a mask or not) She made note that the picture was an older one and that he has recovered.

'We Aren't Doing Enough'

Jennifer posted a rather depressing caption on her aforementioned update stating the following:

“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.”

This doesn’t have everyone is full agreement though. The validity of the claim that “many lives” have been taken, and that shut-downs were justified, is nothing short of controversial and extensively debated.

No Debate For Aniston

Many doubt the reported numbers, and today there are reports coming out that incidents unrelated to the notorious virus, are allegedly being classified as Covid cases due to the lack of accurate testing and the lack of testing.

Jennifer is of the opinion that there should be no debate around the topic of wearing a mask and that any business shut-downs in the US are fully justified. She wrote in the same caption that she attributes businesses closing to the people who refuse to wear a mask.

'If You Care About Human Life'

The 51-year-old TV actress pulled no punches letting her readers know that she fully condemns anyone who views the pandemic as less lethal than what is being reported and that anyone who doesn’t wear a mask doesn’t “care about human life”:

“This simple and effective recommendation is being politicized at the expense of peoples’ lives. And it really shouldn’t be a debate 🙏🏼”

“If you care about human life, please... just #wearadamnmask 😷 and encourage those around you to do the same ❤️ “

Controversy

Most don't appear surprised by Aniston’s recent posts though. She has gone on file as an outspoken mainstream news supporter and a Democrat with a history of fiscally supporting Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton during their presidential campaigns.

Conservative readers have expressed their disapproval of Jennifer making statements about the dangers of the Coronavirus without sharing any facts. Her latest post today is the first time Aniston has shared anything that would help substantiate her arguments.

Those who follow Aniston closely and share her views have applauded her openness and frankness in her posts.
