Henry Winkler recently stated that the world has to face a cataclysmic event to make everyone united. He tweeted the following, and it has led to a lot of controversies. Winkler wrote,
“We are So divided as a country .. only a cataclysmic Event , that makes us depend on one another again , can bring us back together.”
In context, the tweet makes sense since Winkler is articulating a philosophical position. However, he is being abused by people online, since the world is already facing the wrath of COVID-19. People didn’t take kindly to Winkler downplaying the ongoing strife. Here are a few reactions on Twitter.
According to Winkler, the pandemic was not enough to bring all of us together. He might be pointing towards another event. However, the general public was unable to decipher the true intent behind his words.
