A prominent Canadian conspiracy theorist and anti-vaccine advocate, Chris Saccoccia, also known as Chris Sky, gave out his phone number at a rally over the weekend. Now, he's begging people to stop calling him.
Saccoccia gave out his number during the "Just Say No" rally in Toronto. His intent was to help people try to force their way into businesses without masks and demand service.
He claimed he wasn't afraid of anyone and was here to help.
Two days later, Saccoccia posted a video telling people to stop calling and asking questions.
It seems the attempt was meant to help other people do things like try to get service from businesses while ignoring a mask mandate.
He even said he fully expected crank calls but is used to it.
It doesn't seem like that was true.
Since then, Saccoccia has tried to backpedal and claims he's actually laughing and all the prank calls are just proof he's doing the right thing.
In fact, the prank calls he was receiving every 11 minutes at one point are actually attempts by a vague "they" at stopping him from doing whatever it is he thinks he's doing.
He apparently doesn't know what happens when you give out your number online.
At the rally where Saccoccia gave out his number, some people made good on their plan to force their way into businesses without masks.
Two attendees were charged with assault and arrested after trying to enter the Eaton Centre without masks. After the rally they fought with mall security trying to get into the building.
This is the exact kind of thing Saccoccia advocates and the reason people see him as a joke.
At this time, Saccoccia has claimed he will not change his phone number and lose contact with people he talks to regularly, missing the fact that he can just give them his new number.
Additionally, Insider tried to reach out to Saccoccia for comment and found his voicemail disabled, so how important is all that really?
