Rapper Example responds to an anti-vaxxer who compares vaccinations to ‘genocide’

Example couldn’t resist sparring with an anti-vaxxer who messaged him on Instagram on Tuesday.

The woman, known only as ‘Greta’, messaged the 39-year-old rapper shortly after he revealed he’d received his first COVID vaccine.

Greta urged Example – real name Elliot John Gleave – not to vaccinate his two young sons, comparing it to ‘genocide’.

‘Dear Example. If you [sic] keen to give the vaccine to your [sic] both children you may as well commit genocide. Please rethink your [sic] are unwise in this world. Greta,’ she wrote.

The British musician ‘couldn’t resist’ responding, poking fun at the woman’s ill-informed opinions.

‘Probably will give to my children so they have free 5G. It also comes with a free brain implant that will make them more clever-er than even you,’ he joked.

But the woman refused to let it go, and warned Example that he’d ‘live to regret’ his decision. 

‘At least I’ll be alive. You’ll prob be dead cos you didn’t get the vaccine,’ he continued.

Example shared a screenshot of their conversation on Instagram, and admitted he’d enjoyed their chat.

‘Had my first Pfizer today and put it on my story. Said I wasn’t gonna check my DM’s but it’s just too much fun chatting to some idiots. I couldn’t resist,’ he wrote.

He added: ‘P.S. her messages are extra funny if you read them in her native Slovenian accent’.

Example has been married to Australian model Erin McNaught for eight years, and they share two young sons, Evander, six, and Ennio, three.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the COVID-19 vaccines are effective in preventing people from getting and spreading the virus, and people are less likely to become seriously ill if they do contract the virus.   

In a series of videos posted to Instagram Stories on Tuesday, Example revealed he’d ‘just got my first jab’. 

He said he couldn’t wait to get his second COVID vaccine, and acknowledged that his stance would probably annoy some people.   

'Probably will give to my children so they have free 5G. It also comes with a free brain implant that will make them more clever-er than even you,' he joked

‘Gonna switch off. Not going to switch off, I’m not going to look at my DM’s for a few days, because there’s bound to be some anti-vaxxers in there,’ he explained, before mimicking them. 

‘”Oh, you can’t do that! You can’t put all that in ya!” The good thing is, you aren’t getting the vaccine, so there’s a higher chance of you dying, and then there’ll be more supplies left for the rest of us. And by supplies, I mean, you know, Wagyu steak. “Ooh, we can’t eat beef!”‘

He added: ‘Anyway, I’m halfway to being vaccinated, which means I can return to the UK in a few weeks – well, a month’s time – and play music festivals.’
