They were the first celebrity couple to come forward with their positive diagnosis and I think it's pretty safe to say their announcement was a big wake up call to many people!

In the months following his and Rita's recovery, Tom has been urging Americans to take the virus seriously and WEAR A DANG MASK!

Just last week, Tom was discussing the importance of masks on AP Entertainment's Twitter account!

"I don't get it. I simply do not get it. It's literally the least you can do," Tom scoffed.

"If anybody wants to build up an argument about doing the least they could do, I wouldn't trust them with a driver's license. I mean, when you drive a car you gotta obey speed limits, you gotta use your turn signal, [and] you gotta avoid hitting pedestrians. If you can't do those three things, then I get it, you shouldn't be driving a car."

"If you can't wear a mask and wash your hands and social distance, I don't understand. I got no respect for you. I don't buy your argument," he concluded.

Now, Tom is questioning the patriotism of Americans who choose not to wear a mask in public spaces.

While chatting with Stephen Colbert, Tom asked "Are they Americans?"

"I don't get it." Wearing a mask, washing your hands, and abiding by social distancing measures, he added, is "literally the least you can do."

He continued: "Honestly, if you drive a car, you think it’s your constitutional right not to use your turn signals? You should use your turn signals 'cause otherwise you might run into somebody, somebody might run into you, right? You want to obey some aspect of the speed limit, right? You don’t want to go 120 miles an hour in a school zone. You slow down, right? You try not to hit buildings and pedestrians. You give that a shot, don’t yah? Isn’t that the least you can do when you’re driving a car?"

"I think the least you can do in the United States of America and around the world is wear a mask, wash your hands, and keep your distance. Holy smokes!"
