Twitter Destroys Ben Shapiro For His Claim That Being Unvaccinated Is Just Like Being Obese

  • Ben Shapiro shared his hot take on Twitter equating Covid & obesity for some reason, and people were so annoyed that “obesity” is now trending.
  • “If this is the new standard – that failure to take measures to alleviate your own health problems are punishable by doctors refusing treatment – the extension of this logic to obesity will certainly be something,” he tweeted.
  • “idk if they taught you this at harvard, but obesity is not a contagious disease, nor is there a simple vaccine for obesity. isn’t your wife a doctor?” replied @hasanthehun

Ben Shapiro took to Twitter to share a hot take equating Covid and obesity, and people online are so annoyed that “obesity” is now trending.

For context, Shapiro quote-tweeted a clip from MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” in which they report that dozens of Florida doctors walked out in protest due to a surge in unvaccinated patients who contracted Covid. Frustrated with doctors seeming to “reject patients,” Shapiro suggested they try the same tactic with obesity…for some reason.

“If this is the new standard – that failure to take measures to alleviate your own health problems are punishable by doctors refusing treatment – the extension of this logic to obesity will certainly be something,” he tweeted.

Shapiro followed up with a second tweet, exemplifying what he meant. “I’m sorry, we’ve been telling you for years to eat healthy, stop drinking, and start exercising. Now you’ve got [FILL IN NEARLY EVERY MEDICAL CONDITION KNOWN TO MAN]. You’re on your own,” he said, as if this provided clarify.

Twitter users are puzzled by the false equivalency — so much so that one user responded, asking if Shapiro is actually financially compensated for each one he shares…”
