Ryan Reynolds is one of the most meta actors in Hollywood right now, probably after Keanu Reeves. While the actor promotes his upcoming roles and projects on social media, he is also capable of seeing and reflecting bigger truths about the society.

As vaccinations are rampantly being distributed throughout the U.S. population, the masses need a level of faith in vaccines which just isn’t there in the current public confidence. The Deadpool star has come to change that, and bring with it a snarky hit for conspiracy theorists.

The actor took to Instagram to post a photo of himself getting vaccination. As the majority of U.S. states are going overboard with vaccine distribution to reach a healthy level of herd immunity before the summer outbreak has a chance to wreak havoc, Reynolds did his part and attacked the conspiracy theorists with the caption “Finally got 5G.”

The comment comes after a long line of conspiracy theories which attribute the 5G networks to be the sole creator of the coronavirus. Even the 5G-virus theory is a collection of different theories which blame and argue different viewpoints, such as the virus being a way for “them” to keep us in our homes while they install 5G towers everywhere.

Blake Lively, Reynolds’ wife and Green Lantern co-star also got a vaccine, and captioned her Instagram post of getting the shot “Find you someone who looks at you like I look at the heroic nurse vaccinating me💕.”

While the anti-vaxxers have some fragmented following here and there throughout the world, they’ve received a major blow from Ryan Reynolds, and it might just be that they get some heavy dialogue dropped on them in the third part of Deadpool.
