“I don’t understand vaccines medically, but I’ve always been a little bit of a skeptic of them,” Arayomi said, stating that he doesn’t know if he can trust a vaccine for coronavirus. At one point, he says those who decide to get vaccinated should “hope to God it doesn’t make extra limbs grow.”
The actress shared the video on Thursday via Twitter from a YouTube personality who made unfounded claims about the vaccines’ safety, sounded transphobic and expressed his worries.
US Food and Drug Administration officials have promised not to grant emergency use authorization to any vaccine that has not been proven both safe and efficacious.
The video, which is more than an hour long, also criticized the media, coronavirus lockdown rules, Dr. Anthony Fauci and others. It has been taken down for violating YouTube’s terms of service.
