Chris Evans Just Slammed Trump On Twitter For Telling People “Don’t Be Afraid Of COVID”

After being released from the hospital, Donald Trump announced his return to the White House on Twitter.

On Monday, President Trump tweeted that he would be leaving the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center where he was being treated since Friday. According to Buzzfeed, Trump’s doctor admitted that the president had to be put on oxygen and that he had been given dexamethasone, “which, according to the World Health Organization, is recommended for patients “with severe and critical COVID-19″‘. Furthermore, Mark Meadows, Trump’s chief of staff, also told the press that the president’s symptoms were ‘very concerning’. Nevertheless, Trump’s announcement on Twitter conveyed an entirely different message as he wrote:

— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump)

This tweet outraged numerous people, among which were several celebrities.

Unsurprisingly, the president’s comments were seen as being insensitive, immature, and reckless. According to most, it showed a complete disregard for the hundreds of thousands of families who have lost their loved ones as a result of the deadly virus. What is more, numerous people replied to Trump’s tweet, reminding him that not everyone can afford access to the kind of treatment and care that he received. Chris Evans, the star of Captain America, was one of the celebrities who publicly criticized the president’s tweet as he wrote:

In addition to Chris Evans, actress and singer Mandy Moore also condemned Trump’s statement as she tweeted:


Trump’s message downplays the severity of the virus and its consequences. It is vital that people continue to follow the social distancing guidelines to ensure that they keep themselves and the ones around them safe. Not everyone has access to a private helicopter, free healthcare, and their own team of doctors.
