Remember Goat Boy from Saturday Night Live, the guy who was half-human, half-goat and would spontaneously bleat in the middle of his sentences? Well, it seems he's an anti-vaxxer now.
Or at least, the man who played him is.
Former SNL cast member Jim Breuer has canceled some comedy shows for requiring attendees be vaccinated after going on an angry tirade on Facebook about comedy clubs trying to "segregate" his fans.
Speaking specifically of two stops on his comedy tour at Michigan and New Jersey venues requiring vaccination, Breuer angrily announced he was canceling the shows in response.
"I am absolutely not doing those shows. I know I'm going to sacrifice a lot of money, but I'm not going to be enslaved by the system or by money, and nor should anyone that wants to laugh or be entertained."
Breuer then suggested people are being "forced" and "bribed" into being vaccinated and comedians and musicians are being held "hostage" by entertainment companies, venues and ticket vendors requiring vaccination, which Breuer stated he feels should be a "choice."
"If you have anything else to say, I honestly don't care. I have to stick to my morals. I have to stick to what I know is right."
Breuer even went so far as to compare vaccination requirements to segregation, angrily saying he's "walking away" and would rather perform in "backyards" and "go bankrupt" than follow vaccination rules.
Breuer then went on to claim podcaster Joe Rogan "cured" the virus.
After he was done ranting, Breuer moved on to having several tense interactions with Facebookers commenting on his rant, including trafficking in outright anti-vaxxer denialism.
Breuer even claimed vaccination requirements amount to slavery.
But while Facebookers attempted to engage Breuer in a conversation, folks on Twitter took a different approach.
They roasted Breuer to an absolute crisp.
The majority of venues requiring proof of vaccination also allow the unvaccinated to attend if they provide proof of a negative test, which, much like the vaccine, is free of charge.
People sure do have an interesting definition of "forced" and "hostage" and "segregation" nowadays, don't they?
