Actor Kirk Cameron organized a peaceful protest against California state's order to stay at home for Christmas amid a surge in Covid-19 cases, claims reports. This is the second time this week that Cameron had organized a mass caroling event in opposition to the state's orders. According to a report by a local ABC affiliate, the actor attracted 100 people outside of The Oaks Mall in Thousand Oaks, Ventura County, which happened to be located right next to a Covid testing center and this has resulted in a heavy backlash against the actor. It was also reported that very few were seen wearing masks and following social distancing rules while a majority of them did not wear masks. This of course includes Cameron himself.

Such events are the ones that the government warns citizens against attending as they could be superspreaders. The mall officials were quoted as saying, "The event occurring at The Oaks at this moment is a non-sanctioned event. We continue to share our community's concerns over these irresponsible — yet constitutionally protected — events and have law enforcement on property. We reached out to the organizer to ask that the event be moved." The actor turned evangelist reportedly called the event a "peaceful protest" in his social media invite. 

Governor Gavin Newsom had unveiled the stay at home order earlier this month in four regions when they dropped below 15 percent ICU capacity. The state also triggered its mass fatality program a week before Christmas and ordered 5000 bodybags and 60 refrigerated units. According to The Hill, the cumulative number of infected people is 1.9 million of which 22,923 deaths have been reported. So Cameron's event and the actor himself have been facing extreme backlash on Twitter.

One user tweeted, "I’d like to see Kirk Cameron and every other ignorant, selfish dips**t make a public vow that if they or anyone in their families get Covid, the only treatment they will seek is prayer and prayer alone." Another wrote, "Here's how I feel about Kirk Cameron and his idiot carolers. You get the virus, suffer it out. Don't go to the hospital and take beds away from those who actually tried to follow the rules. No ventilator for you!"



 



 

Another user shared an aerial shot of the 'carol protest' and wrote, "A couple of things come to my mind looking at this picture. 1. Fu** you Kirk Cameron 2. Typical 2020 headline 3. Why the fu** does that douche have to do this in the same county as me? 4. Double fu** you Kirk Cameron, you ruin everything." Another user refected the same thought and wrote, "Thanks @KirkCameron for surely threatening the lives of many, many Californians just in time for Christmas by hosting a 500 person mask-less gathering."



 



 

One fan also shared a screenshot of the singalong and wrote, "Last night (very bad btw) child star & crazy religious fanatic RWNJ Kirk Cameron is holding a Super Spreader prayer rally in the parking lot at the Oaks Mall in Thousand Oaks. How can people be so UTTERLY foolish? If God sends you a helicopter in a flood, get the FU** on it!"



 

In a video promoting the event on Instagram, Cameron informed that 'Sing It Louder USA' was a countrywide movement against restrictions that ordered citizens to stay at home. According to the official website of this movement, protests have taken place in at least 30 states in the form of 100 gatherings. The first one to be held at Oaks was on December 6 and about 500 people had attended the event.
