“In these crazy times that we’re in with the coronavirus, let’s take care of ourselves and each other. Let’s not go to the lowest common denominator and get paranoid,” McConaughey said today.
He continued, “We have an enemy in coronavirus that is faceless, that is raceless, sexless, nondenominational, and bipartisan, and it’s an enemy that we all agree we want to beat — we want to beat and we’re going to beat ‘em.”
McConaughey said there’s a “green light on the other side of this red light that we’re in right now” that’s going to be built upon “the values we can enact right now,” expressing hope that coming together to stop the virus will be something to unify everyone.
