“I understand there’s a pandemic, and I understand it’s very scary. I’m scared of it too. If you are at risk, do not leave your house until there’s a vaccine,” she said. “But, shutting down all these small businesses, things that people have worked their life for, shutting them down again is not the answer. Because they will not make it.” She continued, “So, once we are able to leave our house, once this dictatorship decides to let us have some freedom, there will be nothing left. I’m just over it. I see all these people and it brings me to tears.”

Later, in another video, she apologized for her poor choice of words, which has since been deleted.
