    I’m still stunned that a moment of natural exuberance and joy, became some sort of a symbol for women supporting other women,” Curtis wrote in the caption of her recent post, which has already garnered almost 327,000 likes.

    “[Erin Gallagher] highlighted it with her gorgeous post and word anthem of support and somehow from Tuesday night to Friday night it became a T-shirt that was left outside my home with a dozen everything bagels from my ‘Everything Everywhere All at Once’ family,” she continued.

    Curtis announced in an Instagram post on Saturday that she had tested positive for COVID-19, making her unable to attend several events such as the American Film Institute Awards and the Critics Choice Awards.

    Everything Everywhere All at Once” co-star Stephanie Hsu attended the BAFTA Tea Party in Los Angeles on Saturday, where she posed on the red carpet with a sad face while holding the meme shirt as a show of support for her co-stars.

    On Sunday, Yeoh took to Instagram to wish Curtis a speedy recovery while posing with the meme shirt.

    Love you, [Jamie Lee Curtis]. Speedy recovery, need my hand in yours. We all miss you,” Yeoh wrote.

    Curtis went viral last week for cheering on Yeoh, who won a Golden Globe Award for Best Actress in a Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy for her role as Evelyn Wang in A24’s “Everything Everywhere All at Once.”

    Once a cheerleader. ALWAYS a cheerleader. My Bae won a Golden Globe. Her first nomination and win. @michelleyeoh_official @everythingeverywheremovie,” Curtis wrote in an Instagram post on Wednesday about her co-star’s win. The post has gone viral in less than a week, already receiving over 674,000 likes.
