Dan Levy is asking fans to think of not just themselves when “forced” to wear a mask during the pandemic.
Instead, the 36-year-old Schitt’s Creek actor and creator asks that you think of it as an act of kindness.
“I’ve been seeing a lot of viral videos about people who are actively not wearing masks because they perceive it to be an infringement on their freedom,” he started in his Instagram video. “I suppose, in a way I can understand the frustration of being told what to do, which is why I would like to propose a re-contextualization of this whole thing.”
Dan went on, “Imagine seeing it not as an infringement on your freedom, but rather the simplest, easiest act of kindness that you can do in a day. Not just for yourself, but for other people who might have autoimmune issues. People who, if they were to contract COVID with those issues might have some devastating repercussions.”
“If you have the freedom to leave your house, if you have the good health to leave your house, why not put on a mask, make it your good deed for the day and do something nice for yourself and other people,” he added.
