Recently Tom Hanks and wife Rita Wilson became the citizens of Greece and received the citizenship by none other than the Prime Minister of Greece, Kyriakos Mitsotakis. He himself shared the pictures on his Instagram account where the Forrest Gump actor and wife can be seen holding their new passports.
Prime Minister, Kyriakos Mitsotakis shared the good news on Instagram and captioned it, “@ritawilson @tomhanks are now proud Greek citizens! 🇬🇷👍”
Greece offered citizenship to Tom Hanks, his wife Rita Wilson and their children.
Onto the latest development, the Prime Minister has been receiving enormous hatred and is being criticized for the post that he shared with Tom and Rita on Instagram.
The PM apparently travelled using a military helicopter to travel to meet the Forrest Gump actor and his wife and the opposition party has highlighted the same. They, in fact, called out the PM for treating military helicopter-like their ‘personal radio taxi’.
Here are some of the reactions on the Instagram post:
“KEEP YOUR CHILDREN AWAY FROM THIS MAN PLEASE……”
“Mabe it wasn’t the best time for this post . You know ,now, with all the #pizzagate fuzz. If you don’t know what I mean look the comments on Tom’s posts. Mabe it wasn’t the best time for this kyriako. 😲”
“This happened in January 2020 I can guarantee this photo was not taken recently! Why isn’t this ‘monumental moment’ on either Tom Hanks or Rita Wilson socials? In fact why have they not posted anything of their trip to Greece?”
“I was rejected Greek citizenship 😭 I absolutely love Greece💙, have lived here for 15yrs, call it home, am married to a Greek surgeon (for 17yrs 💕) with two Greek daughters who have Ancient Greek names, I’ve always worked here & paid my taxes etc. I got a certificate from Aristotle university in Greek (I got 80% so i’m not too bad), I’ve promoted Greek wine and Greek travel in international publications, I’ve travelled all over the whole country many times and cook all the Greek dishes 😔 I’ve got an A level in Ancient Greek history and literature (I’ve read Aristophanes, Thucydides, Homer, Heroditus, Plutarhos, Sophocles, Plato) but but but”
