As the world attempts to curb the coronavirus outbreak, many people have started to self-isolate at home. This includes Hollywood celebrities.
One such celebrity is Arnold Schwarzenegger, who posted an utterly bizarre message on Twitter to Californians and anyone else tempted to go out to bars, restaurants or other public spaces amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
The caption reads: “Stay at home as much as possible. Listen to the experts, ignore the morons (foreheads). We will get through this together.”
While B&T is unsure what he means by “foreheads”, the peculiarness doesn’t stop there. The video features the actor and his two pets: miniature horse Whiskey, and Donkey Lulu.
Unsurprisingly, the internet is having a field day over Schwarzenegger’s coronavirus PSA.

Arnie said in the video: “See, the important thing is you stay at home,” while he fed carrots to his pets, “because there is a curfew now.:
“Nobody is allowed out, especially someone that is like 72 years old. After you’re 65, you’re not allowed out of the house any more in California. So we eat at home.”
“Oh yes that’s yummy,” Schwarzenegger said as he fed a carrot to Whiskey. “Lulu loves carrots, Whiskey loves carrots, I just had my little bit of vegan food. Oh yes, that was yummy, huh?”
“No more restaurants, OK? Forget all that. Public gatherings, restaurants and all this, gymnasiums, out the window. We stay home. Hey Whiskey?”
He then said: “No biting, OK? You’ve got to get along because we’re in very small quarters here.”

For some reason, and I can’t pinpoint exactly why, but this was the most comforting coronavirus advice I’ve absorbed so far.
Leave it to the damn Terminator to actually make me feel GOOD about a freaking global pandemic.

According to the World Health Organisation, 154,000 cases of COVID-19 have been confirmed and nearly 6,000 people have died.
B&T can only hope Arnie’s wise words will help ensure people practice social distancing and curb the spread of the virus.
