With protests happening nationwide, John Legend is warning those out in the crowd that COVID-19 is still a very real and deadly virus. The singer voiced his support for peaceful protesting over the death of George Floyd, but also reminded people to take precautions to protect themselves and others from getting sick.
"Please stay as safe as you can. There is still a deadly virus that thrives on people being really close to each other. Distance as much as possible and wear a mask to protect yourself and others!" he tweeted on Sunday (May 31).
Over on Instagram, Lizzo went live to address racism and violence at protests in Minneapolis on Sunday, and echoed that reminder to stay safe. "Wear a mask, wear some gloves, wear some goggles. We're still in a pandemic," she said.
