People be out in the streets wild, acting as though the pandemic is over, when the reality is, it’s not. It’s bad.
Living in NYC, I lived next to a hospital during the start of the pandemic and to this day have anxiety over the sound of sirens, smells, and hell most anything having to do with the pandemic. Having a weak immune system and also having had covid, I do not want this again.
And yes, I am fully vaccinated, but I will also say that doesn’t mean I want you close to me.
Lizzo doesn’t want people invading her personal space either. She took to Instagram and in a seven minute live, addressed the fact that people need to remember it’s a pandemic and personal space – GIVE IT.
“I don’t care who you are. You could be the nicest person. You could be vaccinated. You could be quadruple vaccinated. If you see me, please give me six feet. This shit is coming back. COVID. And people being real sloppy with personal space,” Lizzo said in the live.
“It’s not you! It’s me. I’m not trying to catch nothing. I don’t even want to catch feelings, bitch. You think I’m trying to catch COVID?” she said. And to be honest, I’ve never felt so seen.
“So if y’all see me in the street, come up on me, want to hug, want to shake my hand, want to kiss me on the cheek, don’t do it. Don’t do it. Cause I ain’t trying to catch this motherfucking virus that’s coming back. It got way too motherfucking close. It got WAY… it got THIS motherfucking close. And I don’t play that. I’m about to be rude. I’m nice, you know what I’m saying? But this virus gonna have me acting up, I’m gonna be mean.” Lizzo added.
And guys, Lizzo ain’t trying to be mean. She’s protecting herself and those around her. She’s doing what we all should be doing – TAKING CARE OF OURSELVES.
“I love y’all, and I want y’all to be the same way. Protect yourselves. Wear your masks. And until this is cleared up and we know what the fuck this variant is and who it affects, stay safe my friends.” she concluded the video.
Stay safe. Wear a mask. Get vaccinated. Wash your hands. And keep your 6 feet.
