Woody Harrelson has sparked a lengthy debate after his Saturday Night Live monologue about Big Pharma.
The actor started the segment by saying that it was already his 5th time doing SNL. He then included different topics such as marijuana, political divisions, and not consuming alcohol for several months.
The 61-year-old then talked about a pitch featuring one of the ‘craziest scripts’ he has ever read.
“So the movie goes like this,” Harrelson said. “The biggest drug cartels in the world are coming together and buying up all the media and all the politicians and forcing everyone in the world to stay locked in their homes.
“And the only way people can get out is if they take the cartel’s drugs, and keep taking them over and over again,” he went on.
“I threw the script away. I mean who would believe this crazy idea?” the actor joked.
“Being forced to take drugs? I do it voluntarily all day.”
The Zombieland star’s remarks about the collaboration between the government and the medical industry to advance vaccines sparked backlash on social media.
One Twitter user commented: “Is this clip out of context or is woody actually f***ing stupid because nobody in this country was locked in their house or was forced to vaccinate lol.”
Another said: “Has Woody Harrelson even been acting all this time or has he just wandered onto film sets in a daze, spewed whatever came to mind, and the directors always just said ‘keep it.’”
A third said: “It’s such an incredibly selfish & privileged position, the anti-vax, anti-lockdown, covid conspiracy one. Woody Harrelson, & those supporting such **, are only able to do so because they themselves are ok. Nobody who suffered or lost loved ones to Covid talks like that.”
