Jon Gosselin enjoys sharing parts of his life with fans, from milestones to selfies to how they celebrated the Fourth of July.
But don't come for him or his girlfriend in the comments under his posts. Folks, he will block you.
Jon Gosselin and his girlfriend, Colleen Conrad, recently shared a photo of them dining together with family and friends.
The group sat outdoors and the photo showed no hint of anyone else seated nearby beyond their small party of six (and, of course, the photographer).
But as much as Jon was clearly enjoying Atlantic City, some fans and followers took real issue with the photo.
What a nice photo, right? And yet fans still took an issue.
Well, we're in a COVID-19 pandemic and right now, here in the United States, aggressive federal mismanagement means that it is only getting worse.
So why were these six dining (albeit outdoors) at a restaurant?
Jon Gosselin saw the COVID-shaming and, no matter the intentions of fans, he
"This is ‘OUR’ life like it or not but we ‘LOVE’ it," he wrote in the now-deleted Instagram rant.
"And FYI," Jon announced, "I’ll post what I want when I want."
"And if you comment and if you don’t like it, guess what," Jon warned his followers, "I will block and delete your ass."
"[Because] all in all IDGAF or IDGAFF," he shared, explaining: "(That’s for you all that don’t understand (I don’t give a flying f–k)."
"I love this woman," Jon concluded,"and will [until] the end!!!"
Since posting this message, Jon has elected to delete that caption and disable comments, replacing it with a simple message.
"This is ‘OUR’ life, love you all!!!" the post now reads.
Before he had disabled comments, Jon had written: "Love all of you!!! Cheers!" in the comments, presumably to soften his message.
First up, Jon has every right to block people, disable comments, or simply call out people for giving him a hard time.
Though the COVID-shaming caught people's attention, we're sure that he saw some truly abhorrent comments about him and Colleen.
That rant gave us the vibe that Jon was tired of the shaming, but that he had seen some things that truly upset him.
Now, as for COVID-19, people treating this pandemic with reckless abandon are endangering themselves and countless others for no good reason.
But is that what Jon and Colleen were doing?
Let's take a look.
From looking at recent photos of the outdoor dining at Vagabond Kitchen & Tap House, it doesn't look like they're jam packed.
Rather, from what we have seen, their outdoor seating is spaced.
As we know, the biggest danger zones for the transmission of the novel coronavirus are indoors.
It's good to remember that Jon and Colleen are both very familiar with the very real dangers of this pandemic.
Colleen is a nurse, folks. She has seen the horrors of this pandemic.
And Jon works tech support for a hospital, keeping it operational and running during this crisis and beyond.
If you see people in real life who are screwing up deliberately -- going maskless in stores or in crowded areas -- it's wise to say something.
But we have a sneaking suspicion that Jon and Colleen are already doing all that they can to keep their family safe.
Remember, we know that Colleen takes this seriously -- she bought at tent when this began in case she ever has to self-isolate.
