A 4-year-old is now an internet sensation after a video of her pandemic meltdown went viral on various social media platforms, with netizens relating to her situation.
In the now-viral video, Blake McLennan can be seen sobbing in frustration as her favourite restaurants and playground are closed due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
“The water jug place is shut down which is my favourite place. We can’t go anywhere not even McDonald’s and that’s my favourite restaurant,” the toddler says while sobbing.

She’s actually so bright. So aware and well spoken. She’s also very in touch with how she feels. Amazing for just 4 years old ! Good job to her parents. ❤️

You can tell that they talk to her AND listen. Her language is highly advanced for her age.

I love how her parents aren’t doing that “Just stop crying and eat your food” but are genuinely listening to her voice out her frustrations ♥️♥️😭

It’s amazing how articulate kids are with their emotions when their feelings are not invalidated.❤️❤️
