Michael Porter Jr. has made some bold claims about the coronavirus crisis happening around the world, and especially in the US, where the death toll from the pandemic approaches 150,000. The Denver Nuggets forward stated that there is a hidden 'agenda' behind the disease, claiming that it's been used to control the masses.
He did a little Q&A session where he talked about various serious topics and at the end of it, he discussed the COVID-19 crisis in America.
“Bro speak on this coronavirus being (overblown) to scare people into being controlled, (I know) you know about all that," somebody told Porter Jr.
“That’s facts," the player responded after discussing the controversial 'Pizzagate' conspiracy theory.
"Personally, I think the coronavirus is being used obviously for a bigger agenda. It’s being used for population control just in terms of being able to control the masses of people. Because this virus, the whole world is being controlled. You’re required to wear masks and who knows what will happen when this vaccine comes out. You might have to have the vaccine in order to travel, that’d be crazy. I’ve never been vaccinated in my life, I’ve never had any shots or anything like that.
"It could get crazy, but it’s definitely an agenda behind everything that’s going on right now, and all you can do is sit back and watch what’s going on and not get too emotionally involved.
“But it is a serious thing, it’s a real thing, but yeah, this is being overblown.”
MPJ made a really bold claim with his comments. His comments on vaccines reminded Dwight Howard's words on them, revealing he doesn't believe in vaccinations.
"Do I believe in vaccinations?" Howard said on a recent Instagram Live. "No, I don't. That's my personal opinion, but no, I don't."
MPJ just spoke out his mind and plenty of people think the same as him. Still, this is a big statement from the 22-year-old forward.
Entering the restart of the season, Porter Jr. is averaging 7.5 points and 4.1 rebounds per game in 14 minutes of action.
