Dealing with Covid-19 has not been easy on anyone. At the start of the pandemic, it truly seemed hard for people to grasp just what was happening seeing that there was limited knowledge and the sudden lockdown left people in a state of panic. 

The families on 'Sister Wives' were no exception to this, seeing that they too, had to be wary and take precautions. It put their family dynamic under quite a bit of strain, seeing that Kody Brown functions on a rotating schedule, where he spends a certain number of days with every sister wife, before moving to the next home.

Janelle made it plenty clear that there was no immediate need for Kody to come over, seeing that she was being extremely precautionary when it comes to her and her kids. Kody essentially shifted his rotation between Christine and Robyn's home. However, once the stay-at-home order was made mandatory, the situation seems to have gotten even more difficult for the family, seeing that everyone, including the kids, would now have to stay at home.

The Browns spoke about how if they were to go outside they could be pulled over by cops. Janelle compared the situation to having Gestapo in place. In case you're wondering, Gestapo, formally known as Geheime Staatspolizei, was the official secret police of Nazi Germany and German-occupied Europe. 

Fans were thoroughly appalled by the comparison, seeing that it was not only wrong but also extremely insensitive. "The Sister Wives are all the covid truther problems at one time." tweeted a fan. "Janelle, please don't compare stay-at-home orders to the Nazis. #sisterwives" informed another.

"Watching this show filmed in March 2020 is a reminder of how inept, cruel, destructive, deadly the former president was... giving us false and little information about Covid-19. It didn’t have to be this bad. I hate him. #SisterWives" added another, talking about the circumstances of the time. "Uh. I don’t think anyone is getting pulled over. Ffs. #SisterWives" tweeted a fan.

"It's interesting to hear @JanelleBrown117 compare stay-at-home orders to the Gestapo. Like really? Really? At least people weren't systemically murdered during the pandemic. #SisterWives" argued a fan. "@Surviving_Pod These #SisterWives really need to stop using the Holocaust as a false equivalence. Enforcing health codes to stave off a pandemic is NOT about genocide. My god. The appropriation is so gross. Also, Hanukkah is not about 'pretty lights'. My god." agreed another.
