Stephen Curry — 2x NBA MVP and one of the world’s most popular basketball players — has millions of followers on social media. Dr. Anthony Fauci does not. But in our flipped-upside-down world, it would be better for Fauci to have a bigger megaphone than Curry.
Because at this very moment Dr. Fauci has far more important information to share than Curry does. So Steph Curry lent Fauci his megaphone. Thanks, Steph.
Here’s a great comment that captures the dynamic: “Bro ya gotta love how Curry uses his celebrity to better public knowledge and communities’ safety during this tumultuous crisis. Also props to Fauci for staying true to the facts and maintaining his dignity and duty as scientist in the face of constant, virulent misinformation.”
