Another follower noted: "It's insane, we're in the middle of a global pandemic, children are going hungry and people are losing businesses and homes daily but they choose to pick at you about an ex. People's mental health is at an all time low, tomorrow they'll be #bekind again all over it." "Couldn't agree more, it's ridiculous," Lisa answered.
