Rob Schneider calls vaccines ‘experimental gene therapy,’ invokes 2nd amendment

LA Premiere Of Netflix's "Murder Mystery"
We last talked about Rob Schneider (The Hot Chick, Deuce Bigalow, Male Gigolo) over four years ago when he whitesplained civil rights to civil rights icon Rep. John Lewis (RIP) on MLK day. Rob is digging further into his idiocy. He tweeted some terrible takes on covid vaccinations and the potential booster shot, announced by Pfizer.

He tweeted a bunch of other untrue dangerous takes but I’ll spare you. It’s not like vaccinations are mandatory for the public, they’re just mandatory if you want to work at certain jobs, attend some schools or go to some events. People don’t even have to show proof in most cases. In the south where I live most people are going maskless inside now. These antimasker/anti-vaxxer a-holes act like minor inconveniences that keep people from spreading a deadly illness are the worst things that ever happened to them. Is he suggesting people go and shoot up vaccine sites? It would be ridiculous if it wasn’t a horrible possibility.

Rob is now doing a stand up tour now so he’s coming into contact with people all over the country. Rob did have covid last year, however we know that the Delta variant can still infect people who have recovered from covid. The immunity from a previous infection only goes so far, and is vastly inferior to vaccinations. I don’t wish covid or long term illness or death on anyone, but that’s a natural consequence of this type of idiocy, isn’t it?

    Thank god we have a stupid, ignorant, moron who makes terrible movies to educate us on so many topics.
    I’m pissed that I even remember his name. What an absolute clown.

  2. Nomegusta says:

    People really paid to see him??

    I think that’s the greatest tragedy of all.

    • Jensies says:

      I’m fine with sone of the ‘00s stuff coming back. Bennifer, fun. Dresses over jeans, sure I guess. Chokers, eh but fine. Whatever Angelina is doing with her ex, go with god.

      Him, I do not consent to.

  3. Miranda says:

    Sometimes it pisses me off that herd immunity protects these anti-vaxxer assholes from so much.

    Also, is he just a moron who got his amendments confused, or is he a moron who’s threatening to shoot people who give/receive vaccines?

    • Ann says:

      I take it as he plans on shooting vaccine advocates if they come to his door. A lot of anti-vax idiots are saying the same thing. I don’t think Biden should do the door to door thing specifically because of these people. Someone will get shot for sure.

  4. (TheOG) Jan90067 says:

    Darwin is revving his engines. If someone is stupid enough to listen to these idiots…well, as the saying goes: play stupid games, win stupid prizes. And NOT ONE OF THEM sees the hypocrisy in saying, “My Body My Choice” in relation to this and not reproductive choices. NOT ONE.

    I have NO empathy left for those who will get sick in any way. My ONLY empathy/sympathy is for the frontline workers who must take care of them, the young and immune compromised who can’t yet, or maybe ever, get the vaccine, and for the rest of us they come into contact with as they can spread it very easily even to vaxxed people (and we take it home to our vulnerable).

    Honestly, at this point, I wish that if you CHOOSE to stay unvaxxed (not because of age or *true* medical reasons), you should forfeit getting any medical response/treatment for it. I just can’t with these selfish idiots anymore. I just can’t. We have the means to stop a DEADLY disease, and they just… sigh. I just can’t.

    • whatWHAT? says:

      everything you said, x2.

      the large majority of the unvaccinated are GQP-ers, and they’re going to kill themselves off, which is fine with me. BUT! they’ll likely take at least a few innocents with them, which is NOT fine.

      AT. ALL.

    • Traveler says:

      You said it all so well.

    • CourtneyB says:

      Yeah I need to go to confession because I just don’t care one iota if they get sick. I just worry about the innocents they’ll take down with them like children (increasingly getting the delta variant) and those who can’t be vaccinated.

      • HeatherC says:

        Confession is for those that repent. If you’re like me, there’s no repentance. I think exactly the same way. I’m a nurse and it angers me viscerally that resources may be going to treat idiots like this because of their own idiocy. It wasn’t that long ago, just over a year, when our resources to respond to COVID were stretched to the breaking point and I hate that I have to treat them.

    • Thirtynine says:

      I wish that too. Natural consequences. If you are an anti-vaxxer and have refused the vaccine, you just don’t get treated when youre sick with covid, either. Too late.

  5. Marie says:

    Oh look, another has-been celeb who hasn’t been relevant since the early 90s pushing insane conspiracy theories. Sir, you have earned your spot on Loony Island with Kirstie Alley, Scott Baio and Ricky Schroeder.

  6. Holland says:

    Another idiot who can’t keep his idiocy to himself. All you have to do is act and collect money. Twitter has been interesting because it shows the type of person who has no impulse control, even when it is detrimental to their career. These are the real “look at me” fools.

  7. atorontogal says:

    I knew there was a reason I’ve always despised this guy!

    • LahdidahBaby says:

      Right? I mean, we could easily just despise him anyway for the a’hole vibe he gives off, but it’s ever so much better that he has given us such valid reasons. What a jacka$$ j@rkoff. What a waste of a human.

  8. Sunnydaze says:

    I’m so morbidly fascinated by this argument: “my body my choice” and how it seems to be thrown around by people who wear seatbelts, wear shoes and shirts into convenience stores, make sure their kids abide by school dress codes, etc. Same for people who don’t want to pay taxes or have free college and healthcare. Exactly who do they think pays for social security, elementary/middle/high schools, Fire depts, upgrades to their local roads and bridges? If anyone should be pro choice on abortion I’m SHOCKED it’s not these “don’t tell me how to live my life, here’s my contribution to the home owner association” lunatics.

    • observer says:

      you forget he is a man and while there are many antivaxx ladies out there he and other men are still equating vaccination with abortion without ever having to have faced the potential reality of it

  9. LaraW” says:

    My body, my choice, huh?

    I’ll be expecting him to make a hefty donation to Planned Parenthood with the receipt proudly displayed in his tweet.

    Also wtf does the right to bear arms have to do with this? Unless he’s suggesting his audience launch another attack on Capitol Hill.

    I am not a good person— I hope he gets the delta variant and the hospitals are too full to take him in.

    Oh, one more thing: No means no, he says? If there are any sexual assault/coercion accusations ever levied against him,
    I’m expecting him to own up to them with no excuses.

    • Libellule says:

      I was about the say the same. My body, my choice unless a woman needs an abortion. The hypocrisy is astounding

      • AnnaC says:

        Even access to basic reproductive healthcare, birth control. I feel the same about people espousing pro-life doctrine, while ironically lacking compassion AFTER the child is born.

      • observer says:

        couldnt have said it better libellule. nice name by the way, does it mean anything?

  10. LightPurple says:

    No surprise his daughter Elle King doesn’t use his name.

  11. Amy T says:

    I’m old and I kind of remember his name, but my first reaction was “Who?”

    • Eurydice says:

      Yeah, I was thinking – the guy from the Dukes of Hazzard, the guy from the B-52s, the guy from Parks and Rec, so many Schneiders…or maybe the guy who led the band on Letterman…

    • observer says:

      literally the only thing i know about rob schneider aside from his views on vaccines now is this

      i dont even watch south park (well, maybe a few episodes 15-20 years ago)

  12. BusyLizzy says:

    Oh great, another Covidiot!

  13. Sue Denim says:

    Ugh… on a related note — I went to a dancing event the other night where you had to show a vaxx card and an id before you could get in, so everyone inside was vaxxed. I still brought my mask but ended up not wearing it. Was that dumb? Curious if anyone has any thoughts. I’ve been so careful I don’t want to drop my guard now. An MD friend said it was absolutely fine, but I don’t know… I still wear a mask indoors otherwise, in stores etc…

    • CourtneyB says:

      My whole family is vaxxed. We still carry our masks and wear them if it’s recommended like in malls. With the delta variant who knows what’ll happen.

      • (TheOG) Jan90067 says:

        Same. I ALWAYS have extra masks in my purse and in the door pocket of my car. I have been fully vaxxed since March, and I STILL wear a mask when I go into ANY store. Period. I STILL wear a mask OUTDOORS *IF* I am in a crowed situation. If I’m not around a bunch of people, of course I won’t need to use it. I *know* my vax will most likely protect me from *SERIOUS* illness/hospitalization, but I’m empathetic to know I can *still* pass it to others, or bring it home to my elderly dad.

        So, yeah.. I’m NOT relaxing until this is firmly in the rearview mirror, probably another year or so. I will wear my mask inside. Don’t like it, just TRY and mess with me. I am DONE with these idiots!

    • LainieR says:

      On the whole, if you’re healthy and double dosed and it’s been 2 weeks, the likelihood of getting seriously ill is very very small. You could still get Delta, but you’re not as likely to pass it on, and it would likely be a mild illness. It’s still a risk though.

      We’re not cicadas, we don’t have to emerge all at the same time. If you’re ready to get out there and you’re doing it reasonably safely, then go out! I’ve been doing case management in public health in COVID and I know that that’s influencing my decisions in less rational ways. I’m not ready and doubt I’ll even dine out before 2022 and I’m never taking a mask off indoors. But that’s how I’m feeling – go do your thing!

      • Sue Denim says:

        ok thank you so much, v good advice. I had another invite to a big group restaurant dinner and I turned that down…the dancing was really worth it, but I might wear a mask next time…

      • Ula says:

        “We’re not cicadas, we don’t have to emerge all at the same time.” I love this and will be using it from now on.

    • AnnaC says:

      I’ve been vaxxed since late March and restriction here lifted since early May and still keep a mask on me most days. And since I just got over the first cold I’ve had in 2+ years (yes, wore a mask when out and about while sick) debating going back to wearing it, at least when I’m in a store or crowd.

  14. Jo73c says:

    Did anyone not already know he’s a douchebag?

  15. smee says:

    He looks like an excellent candidate for gene therapy (experimental or otherwise)

  16. CourtneyB says:

    The ‘government coming to your door’ is their latest fake boogeyman. It’s the government taking mobile units to underserved communities like rural areas or where people can’t get off work etc. They’ll go to door with public outreach or if someone is bedridden but no one is going to jump your with a syringe (twice since moderna and Pfizer are 2 shots) full of the vaccine. People are so freaking moronic. And they’re not being hypocrites with the ‘my body my choice’. They think they’re so sly playing gotcha to ‘hypocritical’ pro choices. Just trying to own the libs by slinging that phrase around and then there’s F***er Carlson breathlessly exposing the ‘ biggest scandal in his life’—that people who die of COVID ‘beat’ the average age of life expectancy. And thus, COVID was overhyped by the government. This proving again his stupidity in so many ways. Including not knowing how life expectancy works.

  17. badrockandroll says:

    I wonder what was in the water during those years at SNL – Victoria Jackson, Randy Quaid, Dennis Miller, Joe Piscopo, this guy … (well, it probably wasn’t the water)

  18. NotSoSocialButterfly says:

    Fkn imbecile.

  19. detritus says:

    He’s my only celebrity siting and he was playing with his kids in a pool and seemed like a loving engaged dad with them.

    So bummer he’s a big ole dangerous ninny

  20. NCWoman says:

    Honestly, I’m starting to wonder if some of these has-been celebs are getting paid to be anti-vaxxers, kind of like some of them were paid to promote the wonders of Saudi Arabia after that journalist was murdered. Some bad players have a vested interest in de-stabilizing the United States, which the anti-vaxx crowd will help achieve if they stop more people from being vaccinated.

  21. Sumodo1 says:

    Is Elle King, Schneider’s daughter, vaccinated? Thank gawd I have the good sense NOT to get my medical advice from total idiots.


    I am worried about the door-to-door idea- but not for the reasons he is. I honestly fear for the safety of people who would handle it. If people get into fights at stores over even mask wearing, what’s to prevent them from attacking innocent people who go to their homes? I don’t want anything bad to happen to anyone just trying to help.

    • Korra says:

      I worry about the outreach workers too. Rob’s Second Amendment comment is lockstep with what a lot of right wingers are promoting on social media: shooting government workers who dare to come on their property. It is truly scary how off the rails this conversation over getting vaccinated has become.

    • Robo republican says:

      If you want to envoke your rights just tell them you are using your 1st,4th,& 5th rights, put a no trespassing sign on your property,& if they continue to harass,& solicit then you call the police,& have them arrested for trespassing, soliciting,& harassment. Don’t be stupid & start shooting.

  23. Silver says:

    Omg people educate yourselves … the vaccine doesn’t prevent you from contracting or spreading covid . So a vaccinated person has the same chances of spreading covid as he does .

    • (TheOG) Jan90067 says:

      Not really, Silver. A vaxxed person has a MUCH SMALLER chance of contracting Covid (even with Delta & Delta Plus being more contagious). NO vaccine is 100% effective. There is also a much lower chance of being hospitalized or needing to be vented once you are vaxxed. If you are unvaxxed, your chances of contacting the disease are QUITE high.

      Doctors on CNN and MSNBC have been saying over 95% of people hospitalized and being vented and/or dying of Covid now are NOT vaccinated, including younger adults and pregnant women.

      A VAXXED person can still accumulated virus and be asymptomatic and pass it to another (vaxxed or not). But your chances of being SICK are way reduced.

    • Valerie says:

      lol @ “educate yourselves.” Why is it that self-appointed experts like yourself can never bother to educate others? If you hold all the wisdom, why not spread it around?

    • Cinnamon says:

      Umm Silver, that’s exactly what a vaccine aims to do. By definition, a vaccine is:

      A product that stimulates a person’s immune system to produce immunity to a specific disease, protecting the person from that disease. Prepared from the causative agent of a disease, its products, or a synthetic substitute, treated to act as an antigen without inducing the disease.

      Is any vaccine 100% effective, no. But does it provide a substantial layer of protection that you don’t naturally have, yes it does. That’s why 95% of current COVID hospitalizations are unvaccinated people.

    • Kkat says:

      With the delta variant a fully vaxxed with a mrna vaccine..
      You have about a 35% chance of catching it.
      You have around a 92-94% chance if you do get it of not getting a severe or critical case.

  24. Leah says:

    Wait, I thought he disappeared way back in the 90’s? Well just like the OG C19, the delta variant doesn’t care one way or another about celebrity (A-Z) opinions.

  25. Starkille says:

    No one js coming to your front door, you blockhead. Another man who thinks that his gender means that everyone wants to hear his pontifications. If you don’t want the vaccine, don’t take it and shut the hell up about it.

  26. Merricat says:

    Lol, this guy is worried about people coming to his door when he hasn’t been able to get anyone on the phone in two decades.

  27. J ferber says:

    He needs to shut up. In Texas they outlawed abortion after 6 weeks and, get this, private citizens get to “enforce” it by suing (yeah, right). So they’ll have mofos like the Insurrectionists dragging women out of their homes to do whatever to them. But for the vaccine, “My body, my choice.” Shit, man.

    • jwoolman says:

      Shades of Romania, where women were investigated for having miscarriages or not having enough children. And children were abandoned to the uncertain care of orphanages which were so often unable to take care of them well enough so they didn’t grow up seriously damaged.

  28. Valerie says:

    Huh. Ever notice how the people who say that we shouldn’t live in fear are always doing just that? Not just fear, but abject terror. They’re always in panic mode. They’re the biggest fear and rumour-mongers of all.

  29. Songs (Or it didnt happen) says:

    Just like Brett Favre giving his opinion on transgender athletes, I was waiting with bated breath to see what Rob Schneider thought if this whole Covid business. I can now die fulfilled.

  30. Seth Akers says:

    Well, he’s not wrong, they aren’t vaccines in any sense of the word, they’re gene therapy and there’s no way around calling them that, it’s literally how they work. I men hell, that’s why they’re called mRNA type injections, it describes how they function, you’d have to be a complete idiot not to see that.

    • VoodooStick says:

      Yes. He is wrong. The mRNA vaccines do not change the DNA of your cells so they are not “gene therapy”. If you don’t even know what mRNA is or how it works please do not add to the crushing amount of bullshit being spouted on this topic.
