Actor Jennifer Aniston created quite a stir in 2019 when she joined Instagram. However, this Friends star has garnered attention on social media once again, but this time the reasons are completely different.
Recently, Aniston took to her Instagram story to share a photo of her Christmas tree decorations where she focused on a wooden decoration that read, "Our First Pandemic 2020."
While she didn't add any further comment or explanation in her story, the picture itself irked social media users considering many families had to skip their Christmas celebrations due to the rising number of coronavirus cases.
From being deemed as insensitive to being called tone-deaf, several netizens criticized Aniston for the picture.

Jennifer Aniston’s Coronavirus Christmas Bauble Isn’t Getting Good Reviews she expected. Showing how out of touch with reality 53 yes old is. Such an intensity post to post to her followers. Showing no respect to pandemic victims and their famalies. #boycottJeniferAniston pic.twitter.com/IfDnkUyvZI— JudyJu (@judyju18) December 26, 2020
