The coronavirus can unleash a deadly pandemic, but it can’t stop thirsty Instagram users from shooting their shot with a gorgeous sunset … not even close.
Check out these photos TMZ got of a mass exodus Tuesday evening to catch the sunset in the L.A. neighborhood of Playa del Rey. It’s on a hilltop overlooking the Pacific Ocean and as you can see, amateur photogs/models are still coming out in droves, despite the stay-at-home order.
It’s pretty insane actually … people were waiting in line in their cars with their hazards on — all just to pull up to the perfect spot, briefly park, hop out and snap their mug in front with a sunset backdrop. It’s like a line for a Disneyland ride.
Now, no one’s gonna classify this as an “essential” trip out of your home. Yes, it was a gorgeous sunset on Tuesday, but securing likes and follows for the ‘Gram seems slightly less important than say … getting food or even toilet paper.
At any rate, it appears some of these IG warriors were attempting to be safe and courteous — many were flaunting custom masks. We can’t really tell if that was for protection from the virus or just to get social media shine.
Probably a little of both.
