Woody Harrelson, the True Detective star, has once again caused controversy by making a so-called "anti-vax" joke during his opening monologue on Saturday Night Live. The 61-year-old actor took about six minutes to get to the punchline, after getting distracted a bit and talking about smoking weed, his love of drinking and what kind of tree he was sitting against when he read the script.
During his monologue, Harrelson told a long and detailed story about the “craziest script” he’s ever read. Eventually, he concluded: “So the movie goes like this. The biggest drug cartels in the world get together and buy up all the media and all the politicians and force all the people in the world to stay locked in their homes. And people can only come out if they take the cartel’s drugs and keep taking them over and over.”
The actor then told an awkwardly, liberal, quiet crowd: “I threw the script away. I mean, who was going to believe that crazy idea? Being forced to do drugs? I do that voluntarily all day.”
Soon after the monologue was done, the left wing's mainstream media went to work, instantly writing hit piece after hit piece on Harrelson, articles from Rolling Stones, Variety, Daily Beast, and HuffPost came rolling in immediately.
The left will stop at nothing to defend any criticism on the Covid-19 vaccines, Dr. Fauci or any other dissenting information or thought on the covid response.
This is not the first time Harrelson has raised eyebrows with his views regarding Covid-19. In an interview with Vanity Fair, he said of mask-wearing: “As one who doesn’t believe in the germ theory, I find it rather absurd.”
