One of the celebrity sons of Texas, Matthew McConaughey, recently posted an encouraging video amongst the COVID-19 pandemic. In it, he acknowledges the difficulties of this time of pandemic and predicts an uptick in cases, then asks viewers to be self-reliant and to stay home in order to take care of their families and prevent spreading the virus within your community. He highlights these points by referring to staying at home as an act of both defense and offense in our war against an unseen enemy, the COVID-19 pandemic. At the close of the video, fans of the actor will hear a very familiar line from one of his most famous and earliest roles in a feature film.

An earlier video by McConaughey was posted on Twitter March 17, 2020, in which he notes: “We have an enemy in the coronavirus that is faceless, that is raceless, sexless, non-denominational and bipartisan, and it’s an enemy we all agree we’re gonna beat.” Continuing, he says “There is a green light on the other side of this red light we’re in right now, and I believe that green light is gonna be built upon the values that we can enact right now. Values of fairness, kindness, accountability, resilience, respect, courage… if we practice those things right now, when we get out of this, this virus, this time might be the one time that brings us all together and unifies us like we have not been in a long time.” Has your favorite celebrity posted a video on social media about the importance of staying home to combat COVID-19?
