‘Ditzy af’: Twitter scolds Jennifer Aniston over pic of pandemic Christmas ornament
Jennifer Aniston of “Friends” fame usually has her woke credentials in order.
For instance, last month she posted on Instagram a photo of her dropping her mail-in ballot in a West Hollywood mailbox and captioned it with an endorsement of Democrat Joe Biden.
“I dropped my ballot off, and I did it early. I voted for them (Biden and Kamala Harris) because right now this country is more divided than ever. Right now, a few men in power are deciding what women can and can’t do with their own bodies. Our current President has decided that racism is a non-issue. He has repeatedly and publicly ignored science…. too many people have died,” she wrote on Instagram.
“I urge you to really consider who is going to be most affected by this election if we stay on the track we’re on right now … your daughters, the LGBTQ+ community, our Black brothers and sisters, the elderly with health conditions, and your future kids and grandkids (who will be tasked with saving a planet that our leadership refuses to believe is hurting). This whole thing isn’t about one candidate or one single issue, it’s about the future of this country and of the world. Vote for equal human rights, for love, and for decency.”
Typical, expected and, to the left, inoffensive and mainstream Hollywood liberalism from someone who, according to Vanity Fair, is usually reticent to share her political leanings, but who also in 2008 gave $28,500 to support Barack Obama and other Democrats, and in 2016 another $33,400 to back Hillary Clinton and fellow Democrats.
But Aniston, who now stars in Apple TV’s “The Morning Show,” didn’t make any “friends” with a social media post about the pandemic.
The photo seemingly showed Aniston holding a Christmas ornament – which is usually enough to set liberals off – inscribed with the words, “Our first pandemic 2020.”
Jennifer Aniston is a damn fool for posting that ornament on her story… celebrities are ditzy af

One Twitter user identified as “pacho” opined, “Jennifer Aniston is a damn fool for posting that ornament on her story… celebrities are ditzy af. Cheers to our first pandemic of 2020, where millions of people died! let’s celebrate that on a Christmas ornament!”
“Dirtyson,” another Twitter user blasted, “if this was in februari/march (sic) it would’ve been received well as a joke. but at this point it’s not something to joke about anymore, and definetly (sic) not something to use as a christmas ornament. this just shows how out of touch Hollywood is with the rest of the world.”

A third tweet, highlighted with a picture of a crying child added, “why she’s saying ‘first’ like there’s many more to come?????”

And they’re the same people saying “we’re in this together”! Smh. This only gives more proof that wealthy and celebrities live on an entirely different planet earth compared to the working/middle class folks

That was poor judgement and insensitive.

Aniston isn’t the sharpest tool in the shed

She is Hollywood nonsense

Thus the message to Aniston: too soon.
