Heroes nowadays wear face masks rather than capes, and a luxury hotel chain in Mexico has honored 100 healthcare superheroes with free spa vacations as a gesture of gratitude for their heroic actions during the global pandemic.
Luxury Hotel with a Great Appreciation of Healthcare Experts
The last year in pandemic has put their professionalism, determination, and extreme resilience to be of assistance to others on full display. As a token of appreciation for all their hard work and putting their lives on the line, Velas Resorts gives 100 healthcare heroes a well-deserved vacation on a Mexican beach.
In April, the public voted for their favorite stories from 350 nominations, deciding who would win an all-inclusive stay at the luxurious resort for four days and three nights, with food and drinks prepared by the resort’s top chefs and restaurants.
The voting period ended on April 30th, and the winners were declared last week, along with their vouchers for the Velas Vallarta resort in Puerto Vallarta. Los Cabos, Riviera Maya, and Riviera Nayarit are among Velas’ other resort destinations.
Aeromexico, a Mexican airline, partnered with the initiative to provide roundtrip flights for the selected medical staff to the luxury hotel.
One of the winners was Carlos Alberto Espinoza Casillas. His nomination included a picture of the neurosurgeon wearing a special Batman-themed suit that he designed to give hope to his patients.
Enjoy Life to the Fullest
Dr. Poulin has been employed in the Sherbrooke CHUS Hospital’s intensive care unit for a year and has never taken a break. He’s the one that’s been looking after people who have the virus and are experiencing severe symptoms. Every day, he puts his personal life on the line to support others. Dr. Poulin wanted people to know that we should value everything in life and, above all, enjoy it to the fullest.
Director Apologizes to Lukas Gage After Mocking His Apartment on Zoom
Euphoria actor Lukas Gage was auditioning for a role via Zoom in August. Right before the actor got to audition, the director commented on Gage’s “tiny apartment” without realizing his microphone wasn’t muted.

Who Is the Director?
Lukas Gage uploaded the video to his Twitter account without naming the director who’s also not seen in the video. However, British director Tristram Shapeero regretted what he did and apologized with an open letter, taking the blame.
Before publishing his open letter, Shapeero told a TMZ journalist that he didn’t have any apology because he didn’t say anything bad. However, the director felt obliged to apologize to Lukas Gage.
Shapeero has previously directed episodes of Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, and Community. The director claims that his criticisms were not based on Lukas Gage’s financial situation but where instead an “appreciation” of the conditions actors are forced to work in during the pandemic.
Lukas Gage Didn’t Upload the Video Right Away
As previously stated, the Zoom audition happened in August. However, Lukas Gage didn’t upload the video until November 20. The video was viewed more than 9 million times in just a few days with more than 300,000 likes and retweets.
The actor received support from major figures in the industry, including Seth MacFarlane, Judd Apatow, and Billy Eichner. Most of them encouraged the young actor that his apartment looked just fine and they wished they’d had such a nice place at that age.
Gage took the inappropriate comments pretty well and even made a joke that he needed this job so he could afford a better place. However, PageSix reports that Lukas Gage didn’t get that gig but is now shooting on location in Hawaii with Molly Shannon.
It seems like the young actor got the best of both worlds, he received public support, he got another and probably a better job, and he kept his cool, proving he’s a man of patience and can handle critical situations with a smile on his face.
