The actress said she was sorry for remarks she made about the coronavirus that were 'dismissive, arrogant and cryptic.'

The actress said on Instagram that she was sorry for remarks she made about the coronavirus that were 'dismissive, arrogant and cryptic.'

Maggie Grace, who dragged her former “Lost” castmate hard. “Sure, it’s a free country, but how about choosing to exercise some of that wonderful freedom to have some compassion, trust the extensive science here and not overwhelm [the] health system,” Grace wrote to Lilly on social media. She also suggested that Lilly might want to check in with their former castmate who was recently diagnosed with COVID-19, the disease caused by the new coronavirus. In her apology post, Lilly made a 180-degree turn from her previous post, which she admitted sent “ a dismissive, arrogant and cryptic message.” She continued: “My direct and special apologies to those most affected by this pandemic. I never meant to hurt you. When I wrote that post 10 days ago, I thought I was infusing calm into the hysteria. I can see now that I was projecting my own fears into an already fearful and traumatic situation. “ I am grieved by the ongoing loss of life, and the impossible decisions medical workers around the world must make as they treat those affected. I am concerned for our communities – small businesses and families living paycheck-to-paycheck – and I am trying to follow responsible recommendations for how to help. Like many of you, I fear for the political aftermath of this pandemic, and I am praying for us all.” Read more: HuffPost

An apology from Evangeline Lily is more than we will ever get from the ignorant, orange meat bag pretending to be POTUS. Now Evangeline can go away. Ignorant people and they’re PR reps don’t get to apologize while Drs,nurses and first responders are sacrificing their lives to treat sick people! She shouldnt apologize; our state and local people are being ridiculous

Who the hell cares what this B list celebrity thinks? TrumpLiesAmericansDie But the almost forgotten actress got her new 15 minutes...she’ll fade away soon. Ok. So now, like always, according to liberals, we can't have our own opinions? she's just making sure that she'd get medical treatment in case she is positive.

I don't even know who that is. Why would we care? ajhadzmy Who? 🤷‍♀️
