Hollywood legend and former Governor of California got slammed by fans after sharing a video of himself urging fans to self-isolate while taking a dip in his hot tub.


The "Terminator" actor has been very vocal about self-isolating as a precautionary measure to control the spread of the Coronavirus.

Arnold recently shared a video on his Instagram page, where he urged his fans to stay at home to avoid contracting the Coronavirus, which has swept through all the states in America.

In the short clip, the shirtless veteran actor can be seen in a hot tub puffing a cigar, while addressing his fans.

Some fans showered encomiums on Schwarzenegger for the sentiment, but many fans widely criticized him for his on-screen antics while many Americans are in a crisis. One particular fan commented on his post saying:

"This video clip right here is why Hollywood is so outta touch with the real world!"


The 72-year-old actor said he decided to make the video after he saw pictures and videos of people all over the world, hanging out in crowds and sitting in cafes having a good time.

Earlier in the week, the former Governor of California, enlisted the help of his furry pets to create awareness on how people can enjoy their "stay at home."

Recently, the movie star teamed up with TikTok to raise $3 million.


Arnold shared a cute video on his Twitter account of himself feeding his miniature horse Whiskey and pet donkey Lulu, before wrapping them in a hug.

During the video, the Hollywood star encouraged his followers to observe the strict rules enforced on citizens in his state. He shared the video alongside the caption:

"Stay at home as much as possible. Listen to the experts, ignore the morons (foreheads). We will get through this together."


At the end of the video, the actor grabbed each animal and kissed them on the head. The hilarious video drew a lot of reactions from fans, and even Arnold's son, Patrick Schwarzenegger, joked that he hoped to memes created from it.

Fans love Arnold because of his down to earth nature and commitment to humanitarian courses.


Recently, the movie star teamed up with TikTok to raise $3 million to make sure grade school students don't go hungry while schools go on a forced break amid the coronavirus pandemic.
