Idris Elba Wants The World To Quarantine For A Week Every Year To ‘Remember’ Coronavirus

How about we don’t?

Idris Elba recently recovered from COVID-19 after being one of the first high-profiles names to test positive back in March, but they may want to test him again just to make sure after the crazy things he was saying during his interview with Associated Press.

Idris, who went through the disease with wife Sabrina Ela, suggested an annual weekly quarantine as a way of remembering this tough time:

You know, everyone’s sort of feeling the way we have been feeling, but it has definitely been sort of just a complete upheaval.

I think that the world should take a week of quarantine every year just to remember this time. Remember each other. I really do.

He elaborated:

I think it’s… other species use it. It’s called hibernation. But it does remind you that the world doesn’t tick on your time.

Um how about we don’t, and say we did? I mean if we’re going to do that then why don’t we have a week-long world war every year so that we can remember World War II? A week long bareback anal shag fest to remember AIDS? Unless he and his celebrity buddies wanna chip in every year to keep the rest of the world afloat?

I get what he’s saying – this lockdown should give us a new appreciation for each other. But it’s a little bit more complicated than just shutting the world down for a week every year, not to mention the fact most of the planet lives in far shittier conditions than celebrities like Idris Elba, who are lucky enough to get as much free time as they want.

Idris Elba is the man but this is just more disconnected celebrity bollocks, like that awful ‘Imagine’ cover that Gal Gadot and friends got shat on for.
