The Big Bang Theory actress Kaley Cuoco has hit back at anti-mask followers who criticized the actress for wearing a face mask during a workout routine.
In an Instagram post, Cuoco shared a video of her working out with the caption “My newest obsession during COVID/quarantine! All you need is 20 mins, a jump rope, and good music!”
While most of the comments were supportive, several fans took issue with the fact that Cuoco was wearing a face mask stating that it was “unhealthy to work out in a mask.”
Since the start of the global Coronavirus pandemic, almost every country has urged its citizens to wear face masks when engaging in activities – especially when around others.
“For everyone and their mask comments. I wear a mask when I’m in an enclosed space around others, which I was. I also wear a mask when I’m outside around others,” Cuoco commented on her own post.
She goes on to say that she is doing it for the protection of everybody else – including herself.
“I’m protecting myself and everyone around me. That’s why I choose to wear a mask. Thanks for playing,” she said.
The actress has been very vocal about staying safe during the pandemic, and previously posted about the steps that she is taking.
“Friends that get Covid tested every few days, wear masks, take necessary pre-cautions, listen to production rules, wash hands all day long and respect the process together, get to act together,” she wrote in a caption of herself with The Flight Attendant co-star Zosia Mamet.
