English writer Neil Gaiman is once again in middle of a controversy after it was reveled that the author travelled to Skye from New Zealand, thereby violating the strict lockdown rules. The Sandman author have been in news after the announcement of separation from his partner Amanda Palmer. His Goodreads account was also hacked following which he made into the headlines.
Writing a post titled, AN EXTREMELY APOLOGETIC POST, he started with an apology. “So. I did something stupid. I’m really sorry.” He further added, “I’ve managed to mess things up in Skye, which is the place I love most in the world. So, to answer the questions I’m being asked most often right now: What were you thinking? Why come back to the UK? Because like so many other people, my homelife and work had been turned upside-down by the COVID-19 lockdowns. I was panicked, more than a little overwhelmed and stuck in New Zealand.”
Taking the first flight he arrived at UK. “I drove directly to my home in the UK, which is on Skye. I came straight here, and I’ve been in isolation here ever since.” When question on what he was thinking, Gaiman admitted that he wasn’t thinking clearly and he just wanted to go home.
