American radio and television personality, Howard Stern has taken shots at those who refuse to get vaccinated against Covid-19.
The radio host spoke out on his SiriusXM show. He railed against anti-vaxxers while also mocking a number of conservative radio hosts who fanned the flames for vaccine doubters, only to then die of the virus themselves.
Addressing anti-vaxxers who say the decision about whether or not to get the shot is tied to their personal freedom, Stern said;
“Fuck them. Fuck their freedom. I want my freedom to live. I want to get out of the house. I want to go next door and play chess. I want to go take some pictures. This is bullshit. As I remember, when I went to school, you had to get a measles vaccine. You had to get a mumps vaccine.”
The 67-year-old radio personality added;
“The other thing I hate is that all these people with COVID who won’t get vaccinated are in the hospitals clogging it up.”
Stern further averred that those who refused to get vaccinated should be refused treatment once they are infected. “Go fuck yourself,” he said. “You had the cure, and you wouldn’t take it.”
Mocking those who used their large platforms to push back against the vaccines, he said;
“It’s really funny when these radio, the radio guys are the best, they’re like four of them died. Four of them were like ranting on the air. They will not get vaccinated.
“They were on fire, these guys. It was like day after day, they were all dying and then their dying words are ‘I wish I had been more into the vaccine. I wish I had taken it.’ “
According to data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention published by The New York Times, 53 per cent of people aged 12 and up in the US are fully vaccinated against Covid-19.
