Anthony Mundine makes outrageous claim that COVID-19 vaccine rollout is ‘blatant genocide’ in bizarre social media post
- Anthony Mundine described coronavirus vaccine as ‘blatant genocide’
- Made no reference to any evidence that backed up his outrageous claims
- Claimed vaccine would cause health issues and urged everyone to ‘do research’
Anthony Mundine has made the ridiculous suggestion Australians should not roll up their sleeves for the coronavirus vaccine because ‘it’s blatant genocide’.
The outspoken retired sportsman urged everyone to ‘do some research’ in a bizarre social media rant that was not backed up with any scientific or medical evidence.
‘You take the shot then you will have serious health problems even death!’ the anti-vaxxer told his 89, 500 Facebook followers.

‘Their evil plans are to depopulate the world to 1 billion people, we are at 7-8 billion now …this is blatant genocide on the human race with a virus that has 99.7% recovery rate!’
The recently retired boxer then claimed the vaccine ‘paralysed the immune system’ and that he would let his system do the work for him.
‘Don’t take it! Do your research!’ the post ended.
More than 2.65 million Australians have been jabbed since the nation’s biggest ever vaccination program began in February.
A small number of cases in Australia have developed blood clots after receiving the AstraZeneca vaccine.
But the severe adverse reaction is rare and has only affected four to six people out of every million.
More than 200,000 Australians have provided feedback after receiving either the Pfizer or AstraZeneca vaccines.
While just over half (51.9 per cent) reported some sort of adverse reactions, only 1.2 per cent said there were serious enough to get medical attention.
Around 1.3billion jabs have been issued worldwide.
Around a million New South Wales residents aged 40-49 will be able to get their first Pfizer jab within weeks, Premier Gladys Berejiklian announced on Monday following the opening of a new purpose-built vaccination hub at Sydney Olympic Park.

Mundine’s rant sparked a divided response.
‘What you’ve just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it, one man commented.
Another added: ‘We will see who laughs last. Its people like you that will keep the virus spreading in our country. I had mine, because its the right thing to do to stop this virus spreading.
But Mundine also had a flood support in his corner as many agreed they also won’t be getting jab.
‘Absolutely won’t be having the shot! So many people laughed when you first warned them, I don’t see so many laughing now!’ one woman commented.

It’s not the first time in recent days Mundine has publicly slammed the vaccine.
‘To all my Aboriginal people don’t get that poison they wanna give you over this hoax of a virus!’ he posted on Facebook last week.
‘They coming for our people first ! The plan is to kill as many as they can to depopulate the world !! So black white brown or brindle don’t let them shoot something harmful into your blood system ! Please do your research on what is in the shot & what it does !! We got to resist! Stand up , wake up ! Long live freedom!’
