It was further shared with this lengthy commentary;
“Ahem…Thank u so much Logan Slaughter for sharing this SHAMEFUL DISPLAY. This type of behavior needs to be called out, and CANCELED.
EVERYONE IN THIS PHOTO SHOULD BE ASHAMED.
Though I’m venturing to guess, most of these people are shameless. I know several of them, and I won’t personally call them out, because I’m not looking to “spill some tea.” This is SERIOUS.
If this photo was taken on Fire Island any other season but this one, I’d say this looked like a fun time. In fact, I’d be wishing I could have been there. But, this photo was taken YESTERDAY. During a global pandemic. WTF?!
Is this really what our world is facing? A bunch of entitled gay men who can’t take one season off of partying to save the collective lives of the human race? So many people are flat out refusing to adjust to the “new normal.”
Guess what…everyone in this photo, and anyone at this event (especially the horde’s of individual’s not even being considerate enough to be gathering in large social settings with masks & making sure that sufficient distancing is being implemented)…2020 has been a hard year for the ENTIRE F*CKING PLANET 😤🌎😷.
If we do not all do our part, be compassionate, considerate, and responsible…we are all going to be doomed to the current fate unfolding in the TRUMP-centric states. Delusional, sociopathic mindsets in our current sociopolitical climate are resulting in spiking numbers of Covid-19 cases/deaths.
THIS IS NOT A JOKE: THIS IS SERIOUS.
This is just my opinion, and this is my Facebook profile, so I’m going to state it. The Fire Island 2020 season should be flat out cancelled. These island goers cannot be trusted to social distance, and THEY WILL end up resulting in asymptomatic individuals bringing the virus into the masses of NYC and other places…and a second wave will occur.
As someone that caught Covid-19 and nearly died with a fever of nearly 103 degrees, alone in a hospital…. as someone who has lost several loved ones to this, and has empathy for everyone doing their part, and all those effected and lost… as someone mourning the deaths that have happened and the many deaths to come….
….and as someone who CARES, mankind… we need to do better than this. If we are going to be STRONGER TOGETHER, we need to ALL CARE MORE. We are all suffering, we are all hurting, a circuit party isn’t worth more Covid-19 cases. Period.”
