Giancarlo Esposito, a Hollywood star best known for appearing in “Breaking Bad,” spoke out this week to send a brutal message to the unvaccinated.
“If you don’t want to vaccinate, go to a small island and sequester yourself,” Esposito told The Hollywood Reporter. “We all have to do it if we want to live. You’re saying “F*** you” to all you other human beings.”
Esposito went on to say that he doesn’t “understand how people don’t vaccinate” more than a year-and-a-half into the COVID-19 pandemic.
“For me, I’ve lost dear friends, so I know it’s real,” he said. “Not only in Europe but in America, friends who were completely healthy and uncompromised. The vaccine is the answer.”
While Esposito said that he doesn’t want to put down “anyone who doesn’t want to vaccinate,” he would like them to quarantine themselves until the pandemic is under full control.
“Don’t work,” he said, addressing the unvaccinated. “Go ride it out somewhere where you’re not going to compromise anyone else if you get it.”
This comes after the unvaccinated Hollywood star Miles Teller cost Paramount Plus $6 million when he tested positive for COVID-19 and delayed production of his new movie The Offer.
“‘Miles Teller is not vaccinated. He wouldn’t even get the test,” a source told Daily Mail. “Now he’s brought the virus to the set and the whole set had to shut down.”
Hollywood star George Clooney fired back by shaming the unvaccinated.
It’s stupid because every generation in our country for more than a lifetime has been asked to sacrifice something for the safety of their fellow man – get shot, fight Nazis,” Clooney said. “All that anyone’s being asked here is to get a shot in the arm and put on a mask. Grow up. Get something done.”
“Black-Ish” star Anthony Anderson went a little easier on the unvaccinated.
“Each individual has his or her own rights. We aren’t in control of anyone’s body, only that person is,” said Anderson. “I’m vaccinated because I have preexisting conditions as a Type 2 diabetic, so I wanted to make sure that I did whatever I could to stave off this pandemic and COVID. But I’m not here to judge anyone on what they should do with their body. I can only govern what I’m doing with mine. As long as they respect me, I respect them. And as long as we keep our 6-foot distance and wear a mask, then we can interact and do what we want to do. But it’s not my place to police anyone.”
