Ryan Reynolds Proves Yet Again He Is the King of Social Media: ‘Let’s Not Kill Anyone’

These days, social media isn’t just a fun way for celebrities to engage with fans. It’s nearly a necessity. And few stars know how to leverage their online presence like Ryan Reynolds.

The Deadpool star has proven time and again he knows how to troll fans and fellow celebrities alike. Even when Reynolds delivers a serious message, he finds ways to slip in his signature wry sense of humor. In fact, the actor just proved his social media mastery again.

Ryan Reynolds is one of the most famous Canadian stars in Hollywood

Thanks in part to his popular social media accounts, Reynolds is among the biggest stars in Hollywood right now. The actor has continually offered fans a playful glimpse into his busy life. And amidst his popular tweets and Instagram Stories, he has headlined hits like the Deadpool films, Pokémon Detective Pikachu, and 6 Underground.

More than one of Hollywood’s most popular leading men, Reynolds is also one of the biggest Canadian actors right now. Born in Vancouver, British Columbia, Reynolds had his breakout role in 2002’s National Lampoon’s Van Wilder and has since evolved into a bonafide A-lister. And he hasn’t even joined the Marvel Cinematic Universe yet.

A Canadian official reached out to Reynolds for assistance

So naturally John Horgan, premier of British Columbia, knew exactly who to turn to for help. In a recent Twitter post, Horgan turned to both Reynolds and fellow Canadian Seth Rogen for help in combating the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

In particular, Horgan was concerned about young Canadian citizens partying amidst the public health crisis. And he believed recruiting popular stars like Reynolds and Rogen would help get through to them more effectively than other methods. And both actors responded.

“People of British Columbia! Please do not go out to parties and BBQs and other large gatherings! The COVID is still out there! It’s more fun to hang out alone and smoke weed and watch movies and TV shows anyway! Do that instead! Thank you!” Rogen tweeted.

Reynolds’ response proved to be as hilarious as it is valuable

For his response, Reynolds took it a step further. Rather than answering with a tweet, the actor delivered a 90-second voice message to Horgan, which he shared on Twitter. And, of course, Reynolds manages to caution young Canadians about the pandemic in an incredibly entertaining way.

In his comments, Reynolds strikes the perfect tone of fun and informative, even tossing another little jab at Hugh Jackman. He also pinpoints the deaths caused by the pandemic as well as its effect on more vulnerable people. Then Reynolds makes it personal with a quip about his own mother before winding down with an appropriately poignant message.

“But here’s the thing. I hope that young people in BC don’t kill my mom, frankly, or (environmental scientist) David Suzuki or each other,” Reynolds said. “Let’s not kill anyone. I think that’s reasonable.”
