I Can’t Disagree With Tom Cruise

For months, we have been warned that Covid-19 is a dangerous airborne disease. As of today, 309,000 Americans have lost their lives.

On the set of Mission: Impossible 7, star Tom Cruise reemed out two crew members for ignoring the social distancing measures.

Warning: the audio contains bleeped out expletives.

To be completely honest, he is not the reason that I go out to the movie theater (when they were open). The last movie of his that I saw was A Few Good Men.

All of that aside, I can’t disagree with him. There are thousands, if not hundreds of thousands of people whose salaries come from the making of movies and television shows. Frankly, given the current economic climate, those of us who are still employed and earning a decent salary should not be looking a gift horse in the mouth. If keeping that job and that paycheck means abiding by the recommendations, I would rather make those adjustments than be out of work.

Some of those responding to the recording said that Cruise could have made his point without cursing. Honestly, if I was in his shoes, I would have dropped a few f-bombs of my own.

If we are to defeat this virus and return to a state of semi-normalcy, we need to take it seriously. Unfortunately, there are some people who have to learn the hard way.
