In a subsequent follow-up video on TikTok, the Academy Award winner aimed to prove that she was mindful about safely consuming fresh snow.

She further said, “We drank out of the tap water. We actually put our mouths on the tap, and then sometimes, like in the summer, when it was hot, we drank out of the hose, like, we put our mouth on the hose, growing up.”
Moreover, the 47-year-old star added, “Maybe that’s why I’m like this. So what you’re saying to me is I have to filter the snow before I eat it? I just can’t. Filtered snow. I don’t know how to do that.”
She faced much criticism; however, many fans supported Reese Witherspoon eating snow.
One fan commented, “Only thing we were taught is don’t eat the yellow snow. That’s it!”
