black coronavirus rant

When Ben McLennan uploaded this clip of his daughter to his Facebook page he didn't expect to end up going viral, but that's exactly what happened because Blake's little rant is so relatable.

"Everything in this world has shut all the way down," she says, beginning to cry. "The ice cream truck is shut down!"

"We can't go anywhere! Not even McDonald's, which is my favorite restaurant," she says, telling her dad that his offer to pick up food in the drive-thru just isn't the same as going inside.

"It's really frustrating!" Blake says, getting upset. "If you go through the drive-thru, that's boring ... If you were inside playing on the playground, it wouldn't be boring."


McLennan recorded Blake's rant back in March when these feelings were so fresh, but it's just now going viral, as TODAY reports.

"We've had McDonalds and Chick-fil-A through the drive-thru, but she misses going in and playing on the playground," her dad told TODAY. "She misses dance class a lot. With everything still in lockdown, we've just been quaran-teaming as a family the best we know how."

McLennan calls it "quaran-teaming" because with five siblings—Birdie, 12, Braxton, 8, Brooks, 6, Beau, 18 months, and Blu, 17 months—Blake has a whole team of support.

We're going to get through this, Blake! We understand how frustrating this is. But if we keep "quaran-teaming" we can get back to dance class and our favorite restaurants soon.
