Last year it was alleged Ice Cube had turned down a movie role because he refused to get the COVID-19 vaccine, and at the time, it was merely speculation. Now Cube is back to give his side. But knowing he turned down that much money for refusing to get a damn prick in the arm sounds about right for the man who famously screamed, “Fuck The Police!” way before it became popular. In any event, Cube is finally talking about it, and he is still standing on his belief to spread his message (and whatever else) to the world about not getting vaccinated.
I haven’t thought about M.I.A. since she flipped us the bird at the Super Bowl Halftime show ten years ago. But, this week, she was thrust back into my consciousness for a very random reason. M.I.A. compared Alex Jones‘ lying about the Sandy Hook shooting to celebrities promoting COVID vaccines. Heh? Some context, in case you only get your news from this site (and good for you!): trash conspiracy theorist Alex Jones has been ordered to pay nearly $1 billion in restitution to the families of the victims killed at Sandy Hook, cuz he said the tragedy never happened and the grieving parents were paid actors. M.I.A. took to Twitter to add her two cents. Unfortunately, both of those cents were absolutely certifiable. She wrote, “If Alex jones pays for lying, shouldn’t every celebrity pushing vaccines pay too?” Rational thinking: it isn’t for everyone.
This might seem like yet another appearance of fuck around, and his best friend, find out. But that’s not technically the case. Eric Clapton might be someone who has spoken out against the COVID vaccine before, but he’s also a person who got the AstraZeneca vaccine when it was first available. Since then, 77-year-old Eric has dragged the vaccines as far as possible. But Eric recently caught COVID and he’s stone-cold serious about his recovery, so anyone who was hoping to catch Eric Clapton’s Covidfest is out of luck because Eric isn’t going perform while he’s sick.
Previously on the real soap opera drama that is the current life of former General Hospital star, Steve Burton, he took to Instagram to announce that his wife, Sheree Burton is pregnant with someone else’s child and the two had separated after 23 years of marriage. Steve and Sheree have three children of their own. There was no reason given for their split at the time of Steve’s announcement, but now “sources” are running off to People to spill some details. According to sources, the couple had been “coasting” and grew apart. But sources added that their marriage was also affected by Steve getting fired from General Hospital after refusing to get the COVID-19 vaccine So you see, getting pregnant with another dude isn’t that shocking when you think about how her ex was an anti-vaxxer, right?!
Ricky Schroder is up to his old tricks. No, I don’t mean acting in Hollywood productions, he’s far past that. But he is still throwing tantrums in public places over mask mandates. Last May, Ricky terrorized poor employees at Costco in California over his refusal to follow policy by wearing a mask in the store. Now he’s lighting up a *checks notes* security guard at the Dwight D. Eisenhower Presidential Library & Museum. Ah, yes, good–finally someone is standing up to those fucking fascists at the Presidential Library and Museum! Always shushing people and telling people not to touch the historical items! Monsters!
Dr. Mehmet Oz, who notoriously shilled bullshit weight loss lies, is now trying to debate the Director of the National Institutes of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, Dr. Anthony Fauci. Dr. Fauci is sort of busy dealing with the Coronavirus pandemic that has so far killed more than 947,000 people in the United States alone. But obviously, debating with Dr. Oz takes precedence! And Dr. Oz is confused why Fauci hasn’t responded to his call to debate. Apart from the fact that Dr. Fauci is not running for election as a Republican Senator in Pennsylvania like Oz is, I don’t see how a man who makes a living saving lives would need to debate a man who makes a living teaching daytime TV watchers what a fart is.
