Since I am sheltering in place, I’m paying more attention to celebrity news. Yesterday Google sent me a notification about Presley Gerber. I didn’t know who he was, but a month ago a co-worker told me about him while we were discussing Savage (he had just gotten a face tattoo).
So, I went to Presley’s Instagram page and there he was with a new face tattoo. So much hate and I defended him. At the end of the day, I believe if it isn’t affecting me, I don’t care. Your life, your terms; just like it’s my life, my terms. Well, Instagram got funky last night and blocked me from liking AND commenting on posts. I thought Instagram was throwing shade over tattoo comments.
This morning, news broke that Presley used a filter and Instagram returned to normal. Leprechauns were up to their shenanigans last night. The joke’s on us! So, I found the filter that was used, which was created by the Game and I did my own “colourblind” post and did a fun one.
Maybe I’ll write a poem about this, as part of my COVID-19 series. I can only laugh at myself.
Jac performed on Instagram Live this evening. Since all the bar closures cancelled all of his gigs, I watched and supported him. I feel blessed that I am working and getting paid during this and I’m thinking of small ways I can invest during this time.
During this difficult time, please, please, please show kindness to others! Kindness can’t eradicate COVID-19, but kindness does heal. Please be empathetic and also, we all have something to be grateful for each day. Never forget that!
