Concussion and a fractured nose: Susan Sarandon shares photo of her injured face after horrific fall
'A little slip = concussion, fractured nose, banged-up knee. So, looks like I won't be able to meet the folks in New Hampshire with Senator Sanders tomorrow,' she wrote on Instagram
Susan Sarandon recently took to Instagram to share a picture of her injured face after she suffered a fall. The 73-year-old Sarandon was set to meet with Senator Sanders but added that she might have to reschedule it after suffering horrific injuries.
"A little slip = concussion, fractured nose, banged-up knee. So, looks like I won’t be able to meet the folks in New Hampshire with Senator Sanders tomorrow," she wrote on Instagram while sharing pictures of her injury.
Even though Sarandon missed the chance to deliver her speech for her would-be Democratic presidential nominee, she decided to use Instagram as a means to narrate her speech.
"This is an emergency. Ask the scientists, the farmers, the creatures in the sea. Ask all those who have lost their homes from hurricanes, flood and fire, ask the endless stream of climate refugees, and the people of Flint, San Juan, and Standing Rock," she wrote.
Emphasizing her phrase, "this is emergency", she further wrote, "This is an emergency. Ask the mothers who have lost their children to the opioid epidemic or because of the price of insulin. Ask the mothers who have lost their kids to gun violence in schools, in churches, in their bedrooms."
She added in her speech, "This is not the time for a 'pathway' to or 'framework' for incremental change. Emergencies require bold, visionary leadership."
"Senator Sanders believes in us and that together a better world is possible. He has been fighting for social, racial and economic justice his entire life, long before running for President, often before it was acceptable. Now it’s time for us to fight for him," she concluded.
People were quick to fill her comment section with kind words asking her to get well soon. "Damn girl! Get some rest and shut off social media after this important post. Sending Healing Energy," read one comment.
Another added, "Take the time for yourself. Others will pick up the torch until you come back twice as fierce from your rest."
