We understand Uncle Donis. He's not just concerned with the community in Miami. He also wants to remind people not to contribute to the spread of coronavirus.
Spring breakers were proud of their blatant disregard for the coronavirus pandemic. They still proceeded to South Beach despite widespread warnings and official orders.
College students still stormed the area even when they were supposed to be staying home and practice social distancing.
An interview of one college student went viral after allegedly intentionally wanting to spread the virus despite knowing its nature by saying “If I get corona, I get corona.” He has apologized since that incident.
Miami Heat veteran Udonis Haslem puts spring breakers on blast
Haslem is well-connected to Miami. He grew up in the area and spent all 17 years of his professional career playing with the Heat.
The 39-year old expressed a lot of concern after seeing college kids happy that they were disregarding the coronavirus pandemic.
“This ain’t your f---ing beach, bruh,” Haslem wrote. "This is not your spring break. This s--t is real life — and come to think of it, it’s more than even that. This s--t is life and death,” he angrily states.
Coronavirus cases continue to increase
As of Wednesday night, there are more than 68,000 confirmed cases of the coronavirus in the United States. Florida alone has nearly 2,000 cases.
Haslem just wants young spring breakers to understand the repercussions of their reluctance.
“This virus is going to affect everybody, especially the most vulnerable,” Haslem wrote. “So if you got a nice, stable environment? Keep your ass home. If you got a roof over your head, keep your ass home. If you got a crib with Netflix and a refrigerator full of food? Keep your ass home,” Haslem pleads and explains.
