Anthony Mundine has raised a few eyebrows (again) for his stance on vaccines and the coronavirus jab.
The former boxer has been very vocal about people's need to 'do their own research', despite decades of research already being done on some of our most common vaccines.
But Mundine took issue with the Covid-19 injections that are slowly filtering out across Australia.
He claimed on Facebook, without any evidence, that the vaccination rollout actually has a very sinister objective.
Anthony wrote: "You take the shot then you will have serious health problems even death !!
"There 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 !!
"I'll let my immune system go to work cause if you take the shot your immune system becomes paralysed! DONT TAKE IT ! DO YOUR RESEARCH."
There's a lot to unpack here. Anthony is insistent that regardless of your health status before getting the jab, you will get sick or die.
That's blatantly untrue and there have only been very rare cases of people being seriously affected by the injection.
There have also been millions of people injected with the various vaccine candidates around the world and there hasn't been a massive population decrease.
If anything, it's done the opposite and has prevented loads more people from dying.
Hospitals all over the planet were being overwhelmed with huge spikes in new cases, however the introduction of the vaccine has prevented unnecessary deaths.
While there will be a lot of people who recover from the coronavirus, the word 'recover' is linked specifically and only to COVID-19.
It doesn't take in account all the people who continue to suffer for months after being cleared of coronavirus.
Studies have found some patients have suffered through months of lung and heart damage as a result of getting the virus, even though they were only infectious for about two weeks.
So, it's much better not getting sick from the coronavirus by getting a vaccination.
The final point of Anthony's rant that needs addressed is that it's arrogant to suggest your immune system will be able to handle it because Covid-19 affects everyone so differently.
There's also the risk of infecting others if your symptoms give you a false sense of security.
