Kirk Cameron has sparked outrage this week after photos from his COVID-defying Christmas carol gathering went viral.
He's going to need a good excuse to get out of this one...
Evidently, a little pandemic isn't enough to break Cameron's Christmas spirit.The actor, who is known best as Mike Seaver on the ABC sitcom, Growing Pains, made his thoughts on California's COVID restrictions very clear over the weekend.
He organized a "peaceful Christmas protest" in the parking lot of the Oaks Mall in Thousand Oaks...
The fifty-year-old had been teaming up with Sing It Louder USA to do the demonstrations over the last 2 Sundays...
As it stands, all individuals living in the State of California are currently ordered to stay home or at their place of residence...Except for permitted work, local shopping, or other permitted errands, according to California All. These restrictions mean that many won't be able to see their family and loved ones over the festive period.
Prior to his most recent gathering, Cameron shared a post that encouraged his followers to come down to the protest...
Well, his plea clearly worked...
However, when the photos from Sunday's protest were posted online...
People were nothing short of outraged.
