Jackson appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live! in April, when he read a spoof children’s bedtime story in the hope of helping to slow the spread of the disease.
The story read: “The ‘rona is spreading/ This s*** is no joke/ It’s no time to work or roam. “The way you can fight it/ is simple, my friends/ Just stay the f*** at home.” Jackson revealed the story was written by Adam Mansbach.
The actor felt that reading it on TV was one of the ways he could help amid the health crisis.
He shared: “We talked about what we could do to remind people of social distancing and where we are in these times now.”
