Jennifer Aniston encouraged fans to vote

Recently, Instagram users across the world took part in the #WomenSupportingWomen challenge. As part of the social media challenge, people posted black-and-white photos of themselves with the caption “#WomenSupportingWomen” and “challenge accepted” to show women’s empowerment.

In the caption, Aniston encouraged her Instagram followers to vote in the upcoming election, writing:

“Thank you to all the brilliant and beautiful women in my life who sent the most uplifting messages today. Truth be told, I don’t really understand this #challengeaccepted thing…but who doesn’t love good reason to support women!  Soooo…. challenge accepted! ⠀

And while I have you here, maybe the best way we can support other women is to REGISTER TO VOTE for the issues that affect women. Encourage all your friends, girlfriends, sisters, moms, daughters to do the same. The election is right around the corner, and we need to look out for each other AND love each other!”

She is a strong proponent of wearing masks

Aniston frequently uses social media to try and raise awareness for causes she cares about. She has published multiple posts on Instagram encouraging her Instagram followers to wear masks in public to slow the spread of the coronavirus.

One post showed her friend Kevin in the hospital with coronavirus, and Aniston warned her fans of the dangers of the virus. In another post, Aniston posted a selfie while wearing a mask, and she asked for anyone who saw the post to wear a mask in public.

“I understand masks are inconvenient and uncomfortable. But don’t you feel that it’s worse that businesses are shutting down… jobs are being lost… health care workers are hitting absolute exhaustion. And so many lives have been taken by this virus because we aren’t doing enough.” ⠀

“I really do believe in the basic goodness of people so I know we can all do this BUT still, there are many people in our country refusing to take the necessary steps to flatten the curve, and keep each other safe. People seem worried about their ‘rights being taken away’ by being asked to wear a mask. This simple and effective recommendation is being politicized at the expense of peoples’ lives. And it really shouldn’t be a debate

If you care about human life, please… just #wearad*mnmask and encourage those around you to do the same”
