Abigail Breslin has issued a plea with her fans to take the COVID-19 pandemic seriously and just ‘wear your d*mn masks.’
The 24-year-old Little Miss Sunshine star revealed on Wednesday that her father Michael is battling the relentless Coronavirus on a ventilator in the hospital, as she asked for ‘prayers and positivity.’
Taking to Instagram on Saturday, she aired her grievances with those who continue to flout the mask-wearing mandate, as she tried to make her 527K followers aware of the severity of the situation, while revealing that her dad is currently ‘not conscious.’
A frustrated plea: Abigail Breslin, 24, pleads with her followers to ‘wear your d*mn mask’ after revealing that her father Michael is battling COVID-19 on a ventilator in the hospital and is ‘not conscious’
Take it seriously: The Little Miss Sunshine breakout star added that her dad would say wearing a mask is ‘far less uncomfortable than a ventilator’
‘This is me saying that if you asked my dad: a mask is FAR LESS uncomfortable than a ventilator. So stfu. And wear your d*mn mask. Please. No one should go thru this,’ she wrote in an Instagram post.
She continued to engage with concerned fans on Twitter as they checked in on her and asked for updates.
One user wrote: ‘Just seeing how your dad is doing. Hope he’s doing better,’ to which she responded ‘thank u! Not too much to update you on but we are more hopeful each and every day. Thank you for checking.’
Peter Pan star Jeremy Sumpter shared his frustration about seeing people outside sans face-coverings as he wrote: ‘some people have no sense whatsoever…disgusts me.’
Updates: Responding to a concerned fan checking in on her dad she said ‘Not too much to update you on but we are more hopeful each and every day’
Shared frustration: The Peter Pan star tweeted that he was equally as frustrated with those who refused to wear masks as he said ‘some people just have no sense whatsoever’
Breslin replied, ‘I agree. Im glad you understand that. Hopefully more and more ppl will respect the situation at hand and start acting accordingly.’
She tragically revealed in a tweet on Friday that her dad (who remains elusive on her social media) is ‘not conscious,’ though she said she still calls to talk to him.
‘I’m so used to talking to dad multiple times a day. I still call and talk to him thanks to INCREDIBLE nurses who work so hard and make sure he can hear me, even tho he’s not conscious. Can’t wait to hear his voice again. I love you dada.’
The Oscar nominee first shared the news of her father’s battle on Wednesday, with a post that read:
‘Hi guys. Unfortunately, this post isn’t one I ever thought I would have to make. I’m asking for prayers and positivity sent this way for my daddy, Michael who tested positive for COVID-19 and this morning had to be placed on a ventilator.
Send prayers: The Oscar-nominated actress seemed to be in disbelief that she was writing to tell her 527K followers that her dad’s positive Coronavirus case had gotten so severe he had to be placed on a ventilator
The 24-year-old native New Yorker wrote: ‘My daddy, Michael, tested positive for COVID-19 and this morning had to be placed on a ventilator…I have faith that things will turn around at any moment’
‘We are continuing to stay positive and know he’s under great care. I’m extremely thankful for the nurses and doctors who are working hard to make sure he fights this virus. I have faith that things will turn around at any moment, but in the meantime, please continue to wear your masks and follow COVID protocol.’
Despite an aggressive vaccine roll out in recent weeks, as of Saturday there have been a total of 27.6M confirmed cases in the US and an astonishing 484K deaths.
To make matters worse, Breslin has been fending off social media trolls left and right since sharing the difficult family news.
Taking fire at the insensitive and uneducated nature at some of the posts she was fielding she fired back:
‘Alright new rule: if you don’t believe in wearing mask/ wanna try and cite to me why Covid isn’t real/ wanna be a d***hebag in general… plz unfollow me. And stop saying anything to me. Cool? Great.’
