Since posting a middle finger to COVID on her Instagram back in May, Jennifer Aniston has always had the right approach to 2020. First, she put all of our feelings about the pandemic into a potent haiku:

Since then, she’s advocated for votingthe Black Lives Matter movement, and the importance of wearing a face mask. You know, Queen shit.

On June 30, Aniston posted her first selfie in months while wearing a simple black face mask accompanied by a long caption that deviated from her haiku format. Aniston wrote that although wearing a face mask may feel inconvenient and uncomfortable, putting lives at risk while thousands of healthcare workers put themselves on the line and small businesses everywhere shut down is much worse. She continued by writing, “And so many lives have been taken by this virus because we aren’t doing enough.” (Related: What It's Really Like to Be an Essential Worker In the U.S. During the Coronavirus Pandemic)

Since her post, though, many people across the country have continued to not do enough (while simultaneously not caring for others) by refusing to wear a face covering. Reminder: Face masks—along with social distancing—are currently the only actions we can take to stop the deadly virus from spreading. Not to mention, a face mask can cost as little as $5 and takes less than five seconds to put on. (Related: Jennifer Lopez Has Been Wearing This Incredible Sequin Face Mask)

A month later, Aniston doubled down on her message by posting a personal photo of her friend Kevin, who was in the ICU with COVID back in April. In the caption, Aniston wrote: “Just think about those who've already suffered through this horrible virus. Do it for your family. And most of all yourself. Covid affects all ages.” Aniston shared a second photo of herself and Courteney Cox, both twinning in blue tie-dye face masks.

Like Aniston pleaded on Instagram just yesterday, if we want this to end, we all need to wear a damn mask. And based on the amount of "likes" on her photo, five million of her Instagram followers seem to agree.  Face masks are truly the only accessory we need this summer. While it’s understandable if you’re tired of the same face covering you’ve had for months, that doesn’t mean you should stop wearing one—instead, let Aniston’s tie-dye face mask fill the void filled left by your tie-dye sweats.
