Mark Wahlberg and Mario Lopez joined the long list of celebrities who have spoken out in recent weeks, urging fans to stay at home and self-isolate as a means to stop the spread of the coronavirus.
But the “Spenser Confidential” actor and “Access Hollywood” host were quickly accused of hypocrisy after they each posted clips from a joint workout at a gym in Los Angeles, Calif. while thousands of their viewers remained under quarantine at home.
In a video posted to Instagram on Thursday, Lopez filmed himself and Wahlberg inside an F45 training facility while touting the workout as one anyone can do in their apartments or backyards without equipment.
“Everyone’s pretty much been cooped up in their home for the last couple of weeks. I think now more than ever since we don’t know when this is going to end, we need to stay active, not just for your physical health but for your mental health,” Lopez said in the video.
“That gazelle right there? My boy, Mark, we’re staying six feet away. This place we’re at right now we have completely to ourselves. It is sanitized, disinfected, we did a heck of a workout F45 style. Homie brought me the batting gloves. We’re good to go.”
“Teach people from your own homes,” one user commented on Lopez’s video. “Stay at home for real.”
“Shouldn’t gyms be closed there like dang near everywhere else???” questioned another.
