A TIME FOR GETTING ALONG

Posting a video of an interaction between his dog and his donkey, the 72-year-old used it as an example of what to avoid during this trying time even though he knows self-isolation is not easy and added the caption:

"We all have to get along. Be like Lulu, not Cherry. Use this time to spread kindness, check in on your family and friends, and of course, no biting."

It's not the first video Arnold's animals guest-starred in since the actor went into self-isolation. At the beginning of the week, he posted a clip featuring Lulu and his pony Whiskey.

ARNOLD CONTINUES TO SPREAD THE WORD

While feeding the pair in his kitchen, Arnold took the opportunity to ask people to think of everyone's safety and "stay at home as much as possible," especially those at higher risk of contracting the virus, like himself, as it continues to spread.

Stating that they have a curfew in California, the actor said that they don't go out to restaurants or anywhere since he is older than 65, so they just "stay home and eat here."

The 72-year-old reiterated his strong feelings about self-isolation in another clip that got some followers hot under the collar.

STRONG OPINIONS SURFACE

In a video wherein Arnold again urged his fans to stay at home, including "spring breakers," he decided to share what he's been up to to show that being at home isn't all that bad.

Relaxing in his jacuzzi, Arnold smoked "a little stogie" while sharing that he just came back from a bike ride after indulging in a workout.

However, the video didn't sit well with some followers, as one noted: "Nothing like seeing a 72-year-old smoking a cigar during a respiratory pandemic."

Another netizen said that Arnold is "out of touch with reality" and added that everyone doesn't have the privilege of doing what he is "preaching." But not everyone agreed on this point of view as a woman working in the medical field added:

ALWAYS WILLING TO HELP OTHERS

In January, the Arnold Strongman USA competition took place in Santa Monica. Arnold Schwarzenegger started the competition to act as a fundraiser for several charities, including the Orphans Fund and CalFire Benevolent Foundation.

However, the actor had a surprise in store for Los Angeles firefighter Eric Stevens, who attended the event and have ALS, a life-threatening disease he had been diagnosed not long before.

Along with celebs Joe Manganiello and Sofia Vergara, the trio banded together and donated a total of $20K to help Eric with his costly medical needs.
