Former Saturday Night Live cast member and stand-up comedian Jim Breuer made headlines after he barked like a seal during an interview with Tucker Carlson on Fox News.
Breuer, a self-proclaimed anti-vaxxer, appeared on Tucker Carlson Tonight after he announced cancellations of shows at venues which require proof of vaccination.
You can hear his remarks in the video below.
Breuer began by claiming vaccine mandates affected his fans because many do not want to get vaccinated.
"Honestly, I got a lot of feedback from a couple venues that I was playing, and my fans are really upset."
"They said, you know, 'I'm not comfortable with getting a Covid shot, and now they're saying I can't come see you perform unless I do that.'"
Breuer compared a public health mandate and compliance with it allowing people to attend events to a seal getting a piece of fish as a treat.
He then barked like a seal to underscore his point.
"And I looked into it and, that's the last thing you should be doing—is going, 'hey, you wanna come see the'—like feeding the seal, the fish— you wanna, you wanna, come see a concert?"
"Arf! Arf! Arf! 'You wanna, here, catch the fish."
"Why would you do that?"
"I don't want any of my fans to come laugh and they gotta get a shot in them?"
Breuer implied the unvaccinated are being discriminated against.
He claimed they are being treated as if they bear "the mark of the beast."
"And honestly, Tucker, I gotta be honest with you. What really started my video was, there's a new narrative."
"The new narrative is: The unvaccinated are the beast."
"'Kill the beast.' This program goes on forever. 'Kill the beast! The beast is the unvaccinated! Kill them!'"
He concluded by stating getting a vaccine goes against his "morals" and "faith."
Carlson appeared to agree at the top of the segment when he asked viewers:
"If you can force people to get the vaccine, what can't you do?"
The unvaccinated, contrary to what Breuer might believe, are not a protected class when it comes to filing discrimination claims.
His comments come as many vaccinated Americans around the nation continue to express frustration and even anger at those they accuse of prolonging the pandemic.
Needless to say, his latest anti-vax remarks didn't go over well.
Breuer was criticized for his ignorance.
Although vaccine mandates have become the hot topic in conservative circles, the majority of Americans agree with them and with President Joe Biden's Covid-19 vaccination requirements.
According to a new Axios-Ipsos poll, more than half of Americans—60%—support mandates, an indication public health mandates are viewed as a proven way to gain control of a pandemic.
