Ryan Reynolds asks young people to party responsibly this summer

Don't kill Reynolds' mom

Those curious about the dating habits of Ryan Reynolds's mother are in luck.

After Premier John Horgan called on local celebrities Ryan Reynolds and Seth Rogen for help in spreading the message about safe COVID-19 practices to younger people, Reynolds took to Twitter to respond Friday morning.

“Called your office. Left a message,” Reynolds tweeted to the Premier Friday morning. In the joke-filled “voicemail,” Reynolds tried to drive home the message around safe practices.

“Young folks in B.C. are partying, which is dangerous, and they probably don't know that thousands of young people aren't just getting sick from coronavirus, they're also dying from it too,” he said.

“Of course, it's terrible that it affects our most vulnerable. B.C. is home to some of coolest older people on earth – I mean, David Suzuki, he lives there.

“My mom, she doesn't want to be cooped up in her apartment all day, she wants to be out there cruising Kitsilano Beach, looking for some 30-something Abercrombie burnout to go full Mrs. Robinson on. She is insatiable.”

During Wednesday's press conference, Horgan said private house parties have been contributing to the spiking number of new cases of COVID-19 in B.C., largely in the Fraser Valley and Metro Vancouver areas. Younger people, between the ages of 20 and 39 have seen the largest increase in new COVID-19 cases in recent weeks.

“This is a call out to Deadpool right now," Horgan said Wednesday. “Ryan, we need your help out here, get in touch with us.”

And despite saying the public doesn't want medical advice from guys like him, Reynolds took up the call.

“I hope that young people in B.C. don't kill my mom frankly, or David Suzuki, or each other. Let's not kill anyone, I think that's reasonable,” he said.
