Responding to a user who appeared to ask Porter Jr. why he doesn't "speak up on what goes on in the world", the second-year forward said that "Personally I think the coronavirus is being used obviously for a bigger agenda".
Denver Nuggets ahead Michael Porter Jr. designed questionable responses about the coronavirus pandemic and the recommendations about putting on masks to protect against the unfold of the ailment on Tuesday. "It's being used for population control just in terms of being able to control the masses of people", he said. Because this virus, the whole world is being controlled. And who knows what will happen when this vaccine comes out. You may have to have the vaccine in purchase to travel, that'd be insane.
The player also noted that he is against vaccinations and said, "I've never been vaccinated in my life". I've never ever had any shots or anything like that.
Porter has been criticized for his social media behavior in the past.
On Porter's vaccination remark, Missouri College necessitates new enrollees to comply with the two-dose MMR Immunization Policy or present evidence of now being immune to mumps, measles, and rubella.
It's not certain if Porter received such a waiver.
Claiming the coronavirus was created for worldwide "population control", however, is a conspiracy theory without any footing whatsoever.
'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, ' he said, warning people not to 'get too emotionally involved'. "But it is a serious thing, it's a real thing, but yeah, this is being overblown". Currently, the National Basketball Association is bracing for the restart of the 2020 season in the Orlando bubble following a four-month hiatus that is caused by the health threat.
The NBA season will restart Thursday night in the bubble, where players have been tested regularly while being quarantined away from the general public.
