Howard Stern is one of the most well-known personalities in pop culture history, having appeared in a variety of mediums including movies, TV shows, books and more. He is also no stranger to politics and even sent a warning to The Rock a few months ago.
The COVID-19 pandemic continues to affect everyone in the world and that includes the likes of MMA fighters, musicians and more. The availability of COVID-19 vaccines has helped people combat the virus as best as they can.
However, there are still those who do not believe in taking vaccines and are antivaxxers. It seems Howard Stern has no time for such people from the looks of it.
While speaking on his SiriusXM program, Howard Stern blasted “nutjobs” who are against taking COVID-19 vaccines. Stern is fed up with such people and believes getting vaccines should be made mandatory.
“When are we going to stop putting up with the idiots in this country and just say it’s mandatory to get vaccinated? As I remember, when I went to school, you had to get a measles vaccine. You had to get a mumps vaccine.
Those who are against COVID-19 vaccines opined that it is a matter of personal freedom what substances they are allowed to put in their body. Howard Stern doesn’t care about this notion.
“F— them. F— their freedom. I want my freedom to live,” Stern, 67, said. “I want to get out of the house. I want to go next door and play chess. I want to go take some pictures. This is bullshit.”
“The other thing I hate is that all these people with COVID who won’t get vaccinated are in the hospitals clogging it up,” the radio host, dubbing vaccine opponents “imbeciles,” exclaimed. “So like, if you have a heart attack or any kind of problem, you can’t even get into the E.R. And I’m really of mind to say, ‘Look, if you didn’t get vaccinated [and] you got COVID, you don’t get into a hospital.'”
“Go f— yourself. You had the cure and you wouldn’t take it.”
It is certainly for the best if people simply get vaccinated as the COVID-19 pandemic is unlikely to be over for many years to come and Howard Stern would agree with this statement.
