‘Independence Day’ star Bill Pullman tells Americans to wear masks – different2 min read
President Thomas J. Whitmore is urging Americans to wear their masks to the public.
Bill Pullman, who played the character in the 1996 blockbuster “Independence Day,” announced a public service about wearing a mask in a video for Alamo Drathhouse.
“And now, a message from Bill Pullman, the greatest presidential actor of all time,” the video began.
Coincidentally released on the 4th of July, the “Independence Day” actor said he would go after a “freedom mask” and requested others to do the same.
“Hello America I may not be your president right now, but I let you know that July 4th is still my favorite holiday, and it will always be. This Independence Day, I will celebrate my independence in an important way. Every time I go public I will go after the mask of my freedom. That’s right – the mask of freedom. Because if all of America agrees to wear one in a public place, we’ll be a little closer to being able to return safely to places like bars and restaurants and schools and most importantly movie theaters, “he said.
The message comes as carniviruses continue to grow rapidly in several states across the country and citizens are urged to wear their masks whenever they come out in public. Some cities in California, such as West Hollywood and Santa Monica, where carnivirus cases are more common, will now fine people ড 300 if they don’t wear masks.
