Stephen A. Smith is once again taking anti-vaccine athletes to task over one of their widely used excuses as to why they won’t take the shot.
The First Take host was recently on The Breakfast Club to discuss mandatory vaccines when he decided to call out the athletes who have beeb putting things in their body without all of the questions they have now about a vaccine that will save their life.
“You’re an athlete. You been putting stuff in your body. You trying to tell me that a doctor or a team physician prescribes something and you look at every ingredient and you google it and make sure..You Know..STOP IT.”
“So all of a sudden now…now you wanna be like..”I wanna check,” STOP.”
Last week, Smith came strongly in favor of COVID-19 vaccines, and called out the NFL in the process.
“The only people that [the vaccine is] not mandated for are the players because they have a union — the Players Association,” Smith said “That’s protecting them from what? Because I’ve got news for you: you’re not protecting them and you’re not protecting us. The reality is if you end up testing positive, you can have an affect on somebody else.”
The ESPN host railed against players who have said they won’t discuss their vaccination status.
“I think it’s shameful when athletes talk about, ‘Oh, it’s a private matter.’ It is not a private matter, because it affects anybody that’s standing right next to you. … It’s ridiculous.”
