Howard Stern is looking on Meat Loaf’s family to speak out on vaccines following the rock icon’s death earlier this month. Meat Loaf died Jan 20. TMZ reported on the time that the singer had been “severely in poor health with Covid” and that “his situation shortly turned essential”. It’s unknown right now whether or not or not Meat Loaf was vaccinated in opposition to Covid.
The singer challenged Covid mandates in an August 2021 interview with The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, saying: “I hug folks in the course of Covid. I understood stopping life for a short time, however they can not proceed to cease life due to politics. And proper now they’re stopping due to politics.”
When the interviewer replied: “Oh, God. We’re being managed by everyone,” Meat Loaf responded, “Yeah, I do know. But not me. If I die, I die, however I’m not going to be managed.”
Stern has used his SiriusXM radio present over the past a number of months to condemn anti-vaxxers. Speaking out about Meat Loaf’s death, Stern stated this week (by way of Uproxx), “Poor Meat Loaf obtained sucked into some bizarre (expletive) cult. And by some means actually believed that – he made a press release, ‘I’d somewhat die a free man than take that vaccine.’ And now he is useless!”
Clearly within the camp that believes Meat Loaf was in opposition to vaccines, Stern then urged the late singer’s family to speak out on the matter: “I want the family would come ahead and say, ‘Ya know, when Meat Loaf was laying there within the hospital and he could not breathe, he stated, ‘I made a mistake. I ought to have taken the vaccine.’ Like all these anti-vaxxers, all of them say, ‘I made a mistake’.”
Just final week, Stern made headlines after he shared his perception that hospitals mustn’t admit sufferers who will not be vaccinated in opposition to Covid-19. The radio host informed anti-vaxxers, “It’s time for you to get it. Now, if you aren’t getting it, in my America, all hospitals could be closed to you. You’re going to go dwelling and die. That is what it’s best to get. Absolutely.” – Reuters
