Kaley Cuoco shared an inspirational workout video to social media but while she aimed to encourage her followers with positive energy, others were focused on the fact she was wearing a mask while exercising.
“Jump It Out. My newest obsession during COVID/quarantine! All you need is 20 mins, a jump rope, and good music !” the “Big Bang Theory” alum wrote alongside a video of herself in a black skirt and black workout halter top.
Despite Cuoco’s crisscross jumping coordination and cardio jogging, some of her 6 million followers took exception with Cuoco, 34, donning a mask during her workout.
“You’re wearing a mask because why?” probed one Instagram commenter.
“You don't need a mask when you workout :)” wrote another user, while another added, “Don’t use mask to exercise. CO2. Nice going.”
The comments came in a flurry, however, it didn’t stop the Harley Quinn voiceover actress to fire back at trolls who lent their two cents.
“For everyone and their mask comments. I wear a mask when I’m in an enclosed space around others, which I was,” she wrote in the comments section. “I’m protecting myself and everyone around me. That’s why I choose to wear a mask. Thanks for playing.”
The Critics' Choice Award-winner was lauded for her consideration for others as many of Cuoco’s followers defended her decision.
“If she feels comfortable working out with a mask, good for her. That is her prerogative. Out of respect for people, that’s what I do as well when in the gym. It’s safer for you and the others around you,” chimed one Instagram user.
"Wearing a mask is not dangerous if you listen to your body," began another. "Kaley will likely feel a lot fitter after exercising like this once she can train without wearing a mask. It’s like athletes doing altitude training. She is being a responsible citizen, it’s a shame more people can’t be!!
“Mask wearing protects others and yourself. SMH that this still needs to be explained,” added another commenter.
Cuoco will star in a new drama “The Flight Attendant,” which recently resumed production after being halted by the coronavirus pandemic.
In “The Flight Attendant,” Cuoco plays Cassie Bowden, a heavy-drinking flight attendant who finds herself waking up in the wrong hotel; in the wrong bed with a dead man and no bearings about what happened.
The series will debut on HBO Max this fall.
