'Big Bang Theory' Star Kaley Cuoco Responds to Criticism Over Her Masked Workout


Kaley Cuoco is protecting herself and others while wearing a face mask amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

The “Big Bang Theory” star clapped back at an online critic for their anti-mask comments left on her Instagram. Cuoco shared a clip of herself working out while wearing a face mask.

“My newest obsession during COVID/quarantine! All you need is 20 mins, a jump rope, and good music !” she captioned footage of herself jumping rope along a hallway in a face mask.

Many of the comments were supportive, with one fan called Cuoco a “great example and role model” for using a mask. However, other social media users criticized her for donning the face covering, with one saying it was “unhealthy to work out in a mask.”

“For everyone and their mask comments. I wear a mask when I’m in an enclosed space around others, which I was. I also wear a mask when I’m outside around others,” Cuoco responded in the comments section.

“I’m protecting myself and everyone around me,” she added. “That’s why I choose to wear a mask. Thanks for playing.”

Cuoco isn’t the only celebrity to urge fans to take caution during the pandemic.

Hilary Duff Duff has been vocal over the past several weeks about the coronavirus pandemic. She opened up on how she felt about people partying during the July 4th holiday. Duff took to Instagram to slam irresponsible holiday partygoers amid the COVID-19 global outbreak.

The “Lizzie McGuire” star revealed a creative look while wearing her face mask. She debuted a fun, holographic eye look — perfect to pump up any face covering accessory. Duff first tried out a bold eye look in a video on her Instagram stories. In the clip, she said she copied her longtime makeup artist, Kelsey Deenihan. The 32-year-old actress said she purchased the Lorac Diamond Eye Gloss Trio.
