Thalia, Carmen Salinas

Thalía is not a happy camper after finding out Carmen Salinas mocked her illness, Lyme disease, during an interview earlier this week.

“Well, she better bathe her dogs!” Salinas told reporters. After she received a detailed explanation of what causes the illness, she replied, “Does she have a deer in her house? You need to fumigate that field, honey, and fumigate yourself too!”

The Mexican singer took to social media to comment on the deputy’s unfunny remarks about her sickness and emphasized that ignorance doesn’t solve anything.

“I feel infinite sadness knowing that there’s still people out there who joke and laugh about a catastrophic disease such as #Lyme,” the 44-year-old actress wrote on Facebook. “Listening to these kind of comments, which are taken so lightly, I begin to think about the thousands of people who have lost the battle against this sickness.”

In her speech, Sodi also takes the chance to address immigration and explains the dangers field workers are exposed to on a daily basis and how easy it could be for them to get infected.

“I think about our Hispanic brothers that work as gardeners,” she continued. “Having to cut grass in zones infested with ticks carrying the Lyme bacteria, and other infections that could leave them incapacitated and stop them from living a normal life.”

Thalía, who has been battling with her condition for over eight years now, finalizes her lecture emphasizing how important it is for people suffering from Lyme disease to be proactive and take things seriously in order to not let the illness take over your life.

“Once you contract the sickness, if you don’t attack it with the right treatment right away, it will stay in the person, and in most cases and depending on the circumstances, it stays there for life,” she concluded.
