Robert Downey Jr. turned 55 on Saturday, April 4 but his birthday was not a very joyous occasion as the star shared a pretty emotional message about the people lost to corona virus.
Downey shared a picture of himself wearing a protective mask and gloves with the caption, “First off, thanx for all the b-day wishes, much appreciated..Like so many, our family has lost friends and relatives over the last several weeks. The (well advised) inability to congregate , grieve , mourn, celebrate in a natural way has been less than ideal..When the time is right, I’ll pay proper homage to the fallen..Meanwhile, I feel driven to think of some new ways of communicating with y’all—Maybe give voice to YOUR struggles and insights during this unprecedented time? Maya Angelou would have turned 92 today, and I couldn’t agree more with her wisdom on the matter. ‘There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you.’ I’ll check back soon Until then, stay Safe, Optimistic, Vigilant, And maybe most importantly-Connected, RDJ.”
Social media was full of fans as well as celebrities wishing the star a very happy birthday.
