Arnold Schwarzenegger took to Instagram to urge his nearly 20 million followers to stay home to reduce the spread of coronavirus. His miniature horse and pet donkey stole the spotlight, though.


The "Terminator" star and former Governor of California uploaded a two-minute video on social media that showed him sitting between two of his pets: Whiskey, a miniature horse, and Lulu, a pet donkey. Scroll down to watch the video.

While feeding them carrots, Arnold said that people must stay at home due to the curfew. He added that people like him, who is 72 years old, are the ones who should follow the quarantine the most.

After saying that his family would not go out to any restaurants, he pointed out that they would stay and eat with their pets. Finally, he urged people to forget about public gatherings. From that point on, he focused on Whiskey and Lulu.

Arnold kissed, hugged, and talked to both of them as if they were his babies. At some point, he had both of his pets looking at the camera, making the perfect moment for a memorable picture.

Whiskey and Lulu apparently didn't like to be that close to each other, though, as they tried to bite one another before Arnold made them stop.



For the caption, the "Kindergarten Cop" star asked people to listen to the experts and ignore the "morons," assuring everyone that "we will get through this together."

It is not the first time that Arnold uploads a video in the middle of the coronavirus pandemic. On March 13, he shared a clip of himself washing his hands and trying to teach his dog, Cherry, how to do it.


Cherry was not paying much attention, though, so Arnold wrote in the caption that he hoped his followers would do it instead. He added:

"Be safe. Wash your hands. Listen to scientists and experts, not foreheads. Together, we can slow this down and protect each other."



Apart from Arnold Schwarzenegger, many more celebrities have urged his fans and social media followers to follow the instructions of health organizations. Some of them have even donated money to different causes.

Stephen and Ayesha Curry, for example, contributed to the Alameda County Community Food Bank and the Feeding America network through their Eat, Learn, Play Foundation.


Justin Timberlake, on the other hand, announced on his Instagram Story that he would donate to the Mid-South Food Bank in his hometown of Memphis.

Bill and Melinda Gates gave away through their foundation $125 million to improve detection, treatment efforts, and isolation of the COVID-19, especially in at-risk places around the world.
