Unlike other stars that are getting criticism for not protecting themselves and others out there from the COVID-19 virus by wearing a mask in public, it sounds like Kaley Cuoco was slammed for the opposite! The Big Bang Theory actor decided to wear the protective item even while working out and some people were not all for it!
That being said, the actress was quick to clap back, explaining the reasons why she made this choice.
It all started with Cuoco taking to her go-to platform, Instagram, to share a video in which she could be seen working out.
The star was jumping rope at the time and she was rocking a sports bra and shorts as well as a mask.
In the caption, she wrote: ‘My newest obsession during COVID/quarantine! All you need is 20 mins, a jump rope, and good music!’
While her jump rope skills and her fitness were the focus of the clip, what some people focused on instead was only the mask!
Of course, most fans were applauding her athleticism in the comments but for those who had negative things to say, Kaley Cuoco returned to the platform to explain why she felt the need to wear the protective mask.
‘For everyone and their mask comments. I wear a mask when I’m in an enclosed space around others, which I was. I also wear a mask when I’m outside around others. I’m protecting myself and everyone around me. That is why I chose to wear a mask. Thanks for playing,’ she simply wrote.
This makes total sense but it appears that people were confused about it since it did not appear like there were many people around, if any, while she was jumping rope.
Either way, it’s good to see that she is using her influence to teach more and more people about the importance of wearing masks amid this global pandemic.
