Evangeline sparked outrage on her Instagram a few days ago after telling her 2.3 MILLION Insta followers that she had just dropped her kids off at a gymnastics camp.

"Just dropped my kids off at gymnastics camp. They all washed their hands before going in. They are playing and laughing. #businessasusual," she wrote.

If that wasn't bad enough, she doubled down on her stance in the comments with even more shocking information, like that she lives with her father who has stage 4 leukemia.

"I am also immune compromised at the moment," she explained.

"Some people value their lives over freedom, some people value freedom over their lives. We all make our choices."

In a response to a comment, she wrote: "Where we are right now feels a lot too close to Marshall Law for my comfort already, all in the name of a respiratory flu."

She continued: "It’s unnerving… Let’s be vigilant right now. And kind."

"Watchful and gracious––keeping a close eye on our leaders, making sure they don’t abuse this moment to steal away more freedoms and grab more power."

Naturally, the internet is furious at Evangeline's selfish attitude.
