Big Bird Got The COVID-19 Vaccine And It Pissed Off Ted Cruz

November 8, 2021 / Posted by:

Over the weekend Big Bird got the COVID-19 vaccine! He immediately tweeted that shit (he is a bird, after all), writing, “My wing is feeling a little sore, but it’ll give my body an extra protective boost that keeps me and other healthy.” Before he got the jab, Big Bird participated in a CNN Town Hall for Families to help answer questions from kids about the vaccine, which was recently authorized for American children ages 5-11.

Awww, good for Big Bird… would be any reasonable, well-intentioned person’s response. But “reasonable” and “well-intentioned” are not adjectives to describe Texas Senator Ted Cruz. He tweeted, “Government propaganda… for your 5 year old!” and a slew of other hardcore right-wing trolls did the same. Hmmm… Big Bird is technically only 6-years-old, so I don’t think he’s old enough to identify as right or left-wing. He uses both wings equally!

Here’s Big Bird’s initial tweet, and President Joe Biden’s response:

And here’s Ted Cruz’s response:

And some more totally-not-insane responses:

A bunch of people pointed out that Big Bird’s been involved in public health campaigns for like fifty years:

Big Bird has yet to respond to his critics, but Ted Cruz and his cronies better watch their backs: Big Bird is over 8 feet tall and descended from dinosaurs!
