AceShowbiz - "Captain America" star Sebastian Stan is fuming at the young "idiots" refusing to heed authorities' social distancing advice and flocking to the beaches of Florida during the coronavirus pandemic.
Large crowds of youths are continuing to ignore public health warnings to self-isolate and are instead choosing to soak up the sun on the state's public beaches, which remain open, and Stan cannot believe the ignorance of the youngsters who are likely causing COVID-19 to spread further into their communities.
The Romanian-American actor is particularly angered because although remaining indoors "f**king sucks," being asked to stay at home is nothing compared to what previous generations have had to sacrifice.
"There was a meme going around which really kind of put me in my place, which was like, 'Your grandparents went to war. You're being asked to sit on a couch.' Like, 'Get the f**k with it,' you know?" he told Muscle & Fitness in a remote interview posted on YouTube.
Stan reveals he has pals who are first responders, and hearing about how far they will go to keep their own families safe while working on the front lines has really put everything into perspective - and made the beach-goers' behaviour even more unacceptable during these tough times.
"I talked to a couple friends who are in the workforce, like cops out there sleeping in their garages while working 20 hours a day. Nurses coming home not being able to hold their children because they are afraid they are going to contaminate their families then going back to work...," he shared. "It's like, you hear that stuff and it blows my mind because it makes me feel like I have such privilege to sit around here while these people are beating themselves (up working overtime)."
Stan continued, "What makes me insane is seeing that the beaches in f**king Miami are still (busy) with these f**king idiots. Dude, they're dumb f**ks! And it p**ses me off! And it really makes me insane! Because that is actually the problem right there. Yeah, we gotta remember our grandparents' and parents' way of survival was way worse, and we can do our part here."
The "Avengers: Infinity War" star is currently laying low in New York after filming on location in Prague, Czech Republic for his upcoming Disney show, "The Falcon and the Winter Soldier", was halted due to the global health crisis.
Stan has no idea when production will resume, or if the series will still be able to meet its August premiere date on the Disney+ streaming service - but it's not a pressing issue for him at this time.
"It's not really at the forefront of my mind," he admitted. "You know, we were lucky to get far enough. We haven't finished."
"The plan is to go back whenever we can, whenever that might be, to finish. Whenever we can turn this thing around and people can get back together, we can pick back up, but I just don't know at this point."
