Dan Osborne whines he’s worried about getting beaten up after exposing anti-vax views
Dan Osborne has explained he is fearing for his safety after he expressed anti-vax views which sparked anger from his followers on social media.
The 29-year-old reality star provoked a backlash when he declared he will not vaccinate his children against the deadly coronavirus, and will be swerving the life-saving vaccine himself.
In an Instagram Stories message that he shared over the weekend, Dan dismissed the validity and safety of the Covid-19 vaccine, exclaiming: “Personally that s**t isn’t even going in me – never mind my kids.”
However, his post provoked outrage among his fans who have bombarded him with angry messages in response – leading the ex-Towie star to fear he might be physically attacked over his views.
In a new Instagram Stories message, Dan said: “I can’t take this. You lot are making me nervous.”
He continued: “I’ve had so many messages from people going mad at me for talking bad about the vaccine.
“You lot are crazy. It’s my opinion, chill.”
The star doubled down with his reckless anti-vaccination views.
He said: “It’s not dangerous enough to be forcing an injection on the world. That to me is suspect…”
“Can we talk about something else now. I ain’t looking to get jumped by the Covid f***ing army.”
He then posted a snap of himself drinking beer and joked: “All these DMs have driven me to the beers.”
Dan is among a number of celebrities who have dismissed the Covid vaccine – despite not being scientists or virologists themselves.
Over the weekend, Dan proved he has fallen for a misguided conspiracy theory that suggests Covid and the subsequent vaccine have been concocted by world leaders and pharmaceutical companies as a method of earning a bit of extra money at the expense of millions of lives around the world.
In his posting, Dan said: “I’ve said it from day one. People are going to have a go at me, but the whole thing is about money. The whole damn thing.
“I’ve had hundreds, maybe thousands of messages about kids getting the vaccination. Personally that s**t isn’t even going in me – never mind my kids.”
Dan, his wife Jacqueline Jossa, and their daughters Mia and Ella, have returned from a trip to Portugal, cutting their holiday short when the UK government changed the status of the European country from Green to Amber.
People travelling back to the UK from ‘Amber’ listed countries are required to self-isolate for 10 days upon return and take a number of Covid tests to insure they have been infected by the deadly virus or new variants of it while abroad.
