Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez have come under fire recently for an Instagram post that was shared in honour of Thanksgiving. The celeb couple was accused of being insensitive after sharing a picture from a private jet.
Alex Rodriguez, J.Lo's fiancé and ex-baseball player, posted a picture to Instagram of J.Lo chilling in a private jet. The pic was captioned with a message about gratitude and a question about his followers' plans for Thanksgiving.
The comments section exploded with users saying that the couple were being insensitive to other people attempting to celebrate Thanksgiving in a year that has cost many people their livelihoods.
Commenters also pointed out that due to the coronavirus pandemic and travel restrictions many people will not be travelling to spend the American holiday with their extended families.
Rodriguez captioned the post:
"Lady is definitely ready for #Thanksgiving! We have so much to be grateful for and are excited to be heading home to spend time with family. What are your holiday plans?"
Comments on the post were in the vein of:
ceeezzz: "Hmm let see... stay home lol can’t visit family due to the pandemic"
kimperry1822: "Of course it’s okay for celebs to fly since it’s private? the hypocrisy never ends"
stinaturvery: "Really? The CDC has recommended that no one travel for thanksgiving. And doctors are pleading with us to keep thanksgiving with just our immediate household for one year. I am surprised to see someone with a platform like yours posting this. It is hard for those of us who are sacrificing this year to see this. Sending all love and good health"
sophiesmom0123: "None. We cancelled all of them. We’re in the middle of a Pandemic"
theresaamadden: "Most be nice to travel. Most of us don’t have that luxury."
Briefly.co.za recently reported on J.Lo looking stunning in a metallic outfit at the American Music Awards.
J.Lo can still rock a red carpet and proved it once again when she showed up to the American Music Awards in a sparkly two-piece designed by Balmain. The multi-talented Lopez wore the metallic outfit with a set of matching sandal-style heels and a set of diamond jewels. J.Lo finished the look with a cropped hairstyle, curled in a wave effect.
The dancer-singer-actress then changed outfits as she took to the stage to perform her new songs Pa'Ti and Lonely.
J.Lo performed with artist Maluma, who features on the songs that are both on the soundtrack of their new film. The movie is called Marry Me and is set to be released in 2021 according to IMDB.com. J.Lo attended the awards show alone but is currently engaged to American baseball star, Alex Rodriguez.
Briefly.co.za recently reported on J.Lo stepping out to another awards show, the 2020 E! People's Choice Awards, where she received recognition for being the icon she is. Jennifer Lopez received a People's Icon Award at the 2020 E! People's Choice Awards on Sunday, 15 November and it touched her soul. This award means more to Lopez than her words could express – it brought her to tears.
Armie Hammer had the honour of presenting Jennifer with the award. Knowing the undeniable influence Jennifer has had, Armie reminded the crowd and all who were watching of her endless achievements.
"Jennifer Lopez has always looked at the world and thought why not. Why not have a former fly girl rule the box office? Why can't a bona fide movie star dominate the music charts? And why not be a little girl from the Bronx who conquers the fashion and beauty world? And why not become a global icon?”
After a lengthy speech outlining all the amazing things that Jennifer is, he finally got around to handing over the award.
