Tom Hanks Said ‘Shame On You’ To People Who Refuse To Wear Masks And Social Distance

More and more high-profile celebrities are urging their fans and everyone else to take personal responsibility and reduce the spread of the coronavirus by following official guidelines. During a recent press conference where he promoted his upcoming movie, Greyhound, legendary actor Tom Hanks encouraged people to do their bit in the fight against the global pandemic.

“There’s really only three things we can do in order to get to tomorrow: Wear a mask, social distance, wash our hands,” the actor said. He also didn’t hold back and shamed those people who don’t do these things. Will Hanks’ words have an impact on the coronavirus infection rate which has been increasing in the past few weeks? We’ll see.

Hanks isn’t the first celebrity to speak about Covid-19 in recent days. Have a look through Funscrape’s article about what actress Jennifer Aniston said about wearing face masks right here.

“Those things are so simple, so easy, if anybody cannot find it in themselves to practice those three very basic things—I just think shame on you,” Hanks said during the conference.

“Don’t be a p****, get on with it, do your part. It’s very basic. If you’re driving a car, you don’t go too fast, you use your turn signal and you avoid hitting pedestrians. My Lord, it’s common sense,” an exasperated Hanks added.

Hanks and his wife Rita Wilson both caught the coronavirus in March and have recovered since then. They continue to self-isolate

In case you’ve forgotten, dear Pandas, 63-year-old Oscar winner Hanks and his wife Rita Wilson both tested positive for Covid-19 in March while in Australia. They’ve both since recovered and they’re continuing to self-isolate in Los Angeles.

The actor said that he and his wife had around 10 days of “very uncomfortable symptoms” that weren’t life-threatening. “I guess we were model recoverers from Covid-19, but we were also isolated so that we would not give it to anybody else that we came in contact with, and since then have been doing the same isolating, social distancing that is being asked of the world so, we are fine.”

The movie Greyhound, starring Hanks as US Navy commander Captain Ernest Krause who is given his first wartime assignment, will debut on July 10 on Apple TV+.
