Bill Murray He is described as an old and out of touch man after he seemed to bemoan the fact that we had to wear masks during this pandemic…we likened it to the fear of death. 🤔
The actor recently gave an interview to The Independent about his musical which was filmed in 2018 at the Acropolis of Athens, and while discussing…Bill & Co. Mention how it feels like looking into a time capsule given how anxious he and the others are.
With this in mind, the author says there’s nothing quite like an epidemic to put the kibosh into a spontaneous reaction — and right after, Bell was quoted as saying this… “We just went out with our friend to walk the dog, you’re wearing a mask, everyone’s wearing a mask.” And only the dog is completely alive!”
He adds, “He lives the life of the dog. The rest of us are afraid of death, they are afraid of killing, so we are masked and injected, etc. It’s the most challenging time in this life cycle we are.”
Finally, BM compares how we’ve handled the pandemic with how previous generations have handled global events, saying… “We haven’t had a world war or depression, the things our ancestors had. This is the hand we’ve been dealt with and if you pull back, you can’t of winning.”
A little vague on her face, but Twitter seems to know what Bill means here… and they’re tearing him up for it, with many saying his comments are incredibly deaf.
Bill may be misunderstood on this issue, because he’s talked about COVID quite a bit over the past two years…and not once has he been upset with how the world has reacted to the virus. If anything, he was somewhat of an optimist and admirer.
One of the themes that he’s getting into is that, perhaps, some good has come out of COVID… in that it has made this generation more resilient and ready to survive as in years past. However, it’s hard to know for sure what he’s getting from the doggy analogy…because it just doesn’t look great.
