Idris Elba Is Getting Dragged For Suggesting We Quarantine For A Week Every Year 'To Remember This Time'
If there is one thing that is clear about this lockdown, it's that literally nobody wants to be stuck doing it.
This time—an upheaval of American life caused by poor planning—is traumatic.
However, Idris Elba does not appear to be worried about that trauma, despite contracting and being in recovery for the virus himself.
Elba went on record with Associated Press to say:
"I think that the world should take a week of quarantine every year just to remember this time. Remember each other. I really do."
People immediately logged onto Twitter with one united message: that's absolutely ridiculous.

The economic downturn of the lockdowns worldwide is also staggering.
New York City is suffering a possible loss of 475,000 jobs over the next year.

Hopefully there will be an end date to this all, where we put things as close as back to normal as humanly possible.
But for right now, re-traumatizing people doesn't sound like a good plan.
