After Nicole Kidman posted the photos, Pop Culture stated that the post “elicited strong reactions” among netizens. Some, reportedly, commented that they are “happy” to see the two reunited. Others, also, agreed to the actress’ statements about hugging her mom and shared that it is the best
Kidman’s followers on social media also hoped for her to enjoy their stay in the country. “Stay safe,” others said.
The warm reaction on her recent post, reportedly, comes after many netizens slammed her and Keith Urban on the day of their arrival in the country. Reports said that some Australians criticized them for being allegedly able to break quarantine protocols.
Did they break the country’s protocol?
Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban arrived in Sydney via private jet from their Tennessee home, according to a separate report from Page Six. Upon arrival, they reportedly “retreated” to their multimillion-dollar estate, Bunya Hill – Sutton Forest.
Many individuals said that the Australian law mandates everyone, returning from overseas, to observe quarantine in a state-approved hotel for two weeks. Instead of doing so, the family immediately “holed up” in their estate, which sparked the criticisms.
Amid the controversies, reports, as well as Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban’s avid fans, emphasized that the New South Wales government grants “exemptions” for people, who can observe quarantine on their own. Some of the fans, then, called out the critics and asked them to learn first the entirety of the laws before criticizing the celebrities.
